SOUTH of HOUSTON
One of the best new contemporary bands to emerge on the Manhattan music scene.
South of Houston derived their name from the inspiring origin of the band.
A natural alchemy occurred when three of New York’s star vocalists and three sought-after session players were introduced by a Soho music director/producer. That fateful meeting led to an exciting artistic collaboration and musical partnership that just grows better with time.
The band’s country crossover ‘chops’ and its downtown provenance led the group to call itself South of Houston.
How does South of Houston make sure that our event happens the way we envision it?
From the moment you confirm the band for your date, you will be communicating directly with the band leaders – the folks that will be on the ground working at your event. There is none of the miscommunication that can sometimes occur when communicating through a middleman or intermediary. The band leader will confirm the schedule, all musical and other requests that you make along with the timing and content of announcements at your reception. We make sure everything happens properly and on time.
We’re known for our responsiveness – we return all phone calls and emails as soon as possible, but always within 24 hours.
It is our job to provide “soup to nuts” music for your event and to make certain the entire process is easy and stress-free for you. We take care of everything –start to finish. We can also provide live music for your ceremony and reception hour.
You deserve to enjoy this process every step of the way – we will ensure it will be fun and stress free for you.
Is live music going to overpower our reception making it hard for our guests to carry on a dinner conversation?
South of Houston is never too loud. You will easily be able to converse at dinner. The music will be more lively and a little louder during the dance part of your event, but guests who are not in the immediate dance floor area will be able to carry on a conversation comfortably without shouting or straining their voices.
Does the band take breaks? How do we avoid long spells of silence sometimes encountered at receptions?
We provide continuous music. One of the band members serves as a DJ during a few, very short breaks. There will never be a time when there isn’t someone on the stage playing music and ready to make announcements.
Why is your band less pricey than other comparable bands?
Our prices are extremely competitive because we don’t charge more for weddings. We are professional musicians, love what we do and do it a lot. So we don’t have to ‘up-charge’ and do not seek to take advantage of our wedding clients – even those who may have a larger budget. Our focus is on quality and reputation. We want every client to feel that the cost of live music was well spent and not a dollar was wasted.
What is the band like? Do you have a Mission Statement?
Our mission is simple – to exceed your wildest expectations. We bring an unrivaled professionalism, flawless talent, exciting energy and authenticity to each and every one of our clients’ important events. We love what we do and we hope we can be part of your event.
