Frequently Asked Questions
How do I book Satori?
Our Booking Agent Marcel Cloutier will escort you through every stage of the process, right up until the event. Simply fill in our contact form, or call or email us, and he will get back to you within 24 hours to make an introduction and discuss your ideas and requirements.
How much do you charge?
The amount we charge will vary from function to function. Every function is unique by nature and will therefore require different amounts of time and resources. Please contact us for a pricing consultation.
What types of payment do you accept?
We will accept personal or business checks.
How long do you perform?
Typically we perform three, 50 minute sets. That said, performance times are negotiable & we will certainly perform more or less depending upon the needs of the client.
How do you dress?
Our dress code is considered smart/casual, usually consisting of jeans, dark shirts and often waistcoats and ties, although we always ensure our appearance is in keeping with the nature of the event. Please feel free to discuss any specific dress code requirements you might have.
Where are you located?
We are based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Do you offer both acoustic and electric performances?
We offer all our clients full band electric style, stripped down acoustic style, trio & duo performances.
What equipment do you provide?
We provide a 12 channel Yamaha 01v mixer, all necessary cables, microphones and instrumental gear. All that the client is responsible to provide, is the front of house sound system.
How long does it take you to set up?
It takes us 1 hour to set up, but we can do it in about 35 mins if need to! Set up times are usually dictated by whether your event is running to schedule, ease of access both to the venue and the performance area and performance area readiness. If we have to clear tables, chairs and other hindering objects then this could well cause delay. We can set the PA up first though so that we can start playing background music around 15 mins after we begin setting up.
Can I see you performing live before I book?
Of course you can! Please see our Gig Dates page for details of our public performances. When you come along please feel free to have a chat on the night, it will be great to meet you!
How much space do you require?
The stage area should ideally be 4m wide by 3m deep, but don’t worry if it’s a bit smaller, or a funny shape. We can fit in the smallest of spaces. Please let us know if you think you have a potentially problematic performance area so we can plan ahead.
Can we ask you to learn songs for us?
We are always happy to learn tracks for our clients, however there are a couple of small pre-requisites. They need to be suitable for a band of our nature, i.e. a guitar based band. Certain types of music, like Techno, can be hard for us to reproduce due to lack of certain instruments essential to an authentic sound. We also need a minimum of 6 weeks notice. Our rehearsal schedule, whilst regular, is very busy with other song requests and seasonal preparations, so decisions may be have to made based on the current workload.
Can we choose your set list?
We fully encourage our clients to inform of us of their “must have” tracks, however please allow the band the flexibility to construct a dynamic set based on our extensive knowledge of events and our performances. We recommend that you make around 6-10 song requests and allow us to compliment it with the rest of our material. You will be invited to share your preferred tracks with us during the planning process.
