Do you play with tracks?
No we do not! We believe in keeping it real and honest. Our musicians and singers do not believe in miming to tracks or having the faux support of tracks. If you want a really big sound hire a larger band. By the way, bands who play with tracks cannot take special requests because once the track starts, they can’t stop it. We can and we do take special requests because we are REAL MUSICIANS!
