Attention Engaged Couples and Wedding Planners!

makeshift_wedding_smallerDid you procrastinate on booking entertainment for your wedding and are worried that all the good bands are taken? Not so! Makeshift still has some availability in June, July, and August, but dates are going fast. Wedding planners – do you have a client who wants a great dance band but thinks it is beyond their budget? Check out our wedding info to see how affordable it can be, and contact us to check date availability.

Makeshift Funk Band provides a better value than other local acts:

We own and run our own sound and lighting – no hiring separate sound and lighting companies.

We double on instruments – we provide the same big sound with 7 musicians that most bands need 12-15 musicians for.

We do all of our own business – no extra overhead for business managers, booking agents, etc. And as a plus, you deal directly with the same people who will play your reception!

We run cutting-edge, modern equipment – no big, bulky, overpriced sound gear to ruin the look of your reception and put a dent in your budget.

If you want a live dance band, but thought it was out of your budget, think again! We challenge you to compare what we offer with any other local act. Contact us, or come meet us in person at any of our public shows and talk to us about your special day!
