A Special Note
From Our Event Coordinator & Business Manager

I’d like to take a few moments, first, to thank you for considering New Monopoly for your special day, and also to address many of the common questions I encounter when discussing the booking of our group with clients.  I realize there is a lot of material presented here, but, with my 45 years of experience in the music business, I have both seen and heard stories of the best and worst events, and I know what elements to focus on in order to successfully accomplish a night to remember.  It is my goal here to help you avoid the pitfalls that I have seen others run into, mostly by not asking the right questions, and should you choose us to be part of your special day, to make that day is everything you have always dreamed of. 

                                                                                                                                        
PRICING & MUSIC SELECTION

Band or DJ?
Sound wise, the is no doubt that there is nothing that can beat the energy of well-performed live music.  The constant theme running through all of our  client feedback is the fact their guests are astounded by the variety of music we perform and how much we sound like the original artists.

New Monopoly specializes in weddings and corporate/fund-raising dates.  If you have had the pleasure of attending a wedding with superior live entertainment, I guarantee you will remember what a great time you had dancing and enjoying yourself for years to come.  There is such a drastic difference in energy that words cannot truly express.  We are experts at pleasing your guests while still keeping the focus where it should be - on your special day.   Plus, because we provide a DJ during all our breaks, even if there is music the band does not perform, you will not miss out on anything you may want to hear. 


Booking Agency or book directly with the band?
The next thing that necessarily comes up is price.   One thing to consider here is whether you would prefer to use a booking agency or booking directly with the band.  If you are solely looking to book New Monopoly, we encourage you to contact us directly, so we can offer you at a much reduced price.   We are a complete package - so correct answers to specific questions could save you a great deal of money, plus, we offer everything under one roof: the band, along with optional cocktail hour services, ceremony services (if the ceremony is being held at the same venue of the reception), and top quality wireless uplighting.  

New Monopoly is not a newcomer to the high-end music scene.  We have been incorporated in Maryland for 15+ years, and have directly booked hundreds of dates throughout the Baltimore/ DC / NOVA/ Pennsylvania /Delaware (list of specific venues available on request) during the group's lifetime.  We use industry standard contracts, and all of your rights and protections are guaranteed to the fullest extent of the law.  We also provide a certificate of liability (we are fully insured), should your venue require it.

If you contact any booking agency to enquire about pricing and availability prior to contacting us first and “registering”/discussing your date, our agreements with the local booking agencies requires that you complete any pricing discussions and arrangements with said agency.  You would be responsible for any service fees and/or commissions. 


Music Selection
After performing 100’s of weddings at every top venue in the tristate area, and with a song list composed of well over 800+ songs from the 40’s to today, we have the knowledge and the facility to keep a party running on track from note one until we strike the final chord.  And our ability to select the right song at the right time places us in a class all our own.  Also, if you would like, we will learn your first dance or other special song.

Our music library will please older guests, as well as younger people.  We are constantly learning the best of each month’s top radio hits in order to be on the cutting edge - an area in which we particularly excel.  We learn the most requested material, and supplement our own playlist with music played by our (included) DJ, who will fill in any small gaps or during breaks. 


LIGHTING SYSTEM

We offer our premium stage lighting system at no additional cost.  This system can include (providing enough power is available) our professional moving head lighting system as well as our standard full-color cool-LED wash/stage lighting.  The stunning movements and dramatic color palette made available by this system not only will excite the dance floor and stage, but provide a memorable visual experience.   We are responsive to any and all requests for variation in this lighting presentation.

Optionally, we offer (up to) 24 wireless self-powered up-lights that can be programmed to match the color/decor of your venue, or whether color scheme you choose.   This way, we can now accommodate the spectrum of visual wishes, tying in the entire room together with gorgeous color - deep purples and blue, elegant yellows and ambers, and smoky reds - all available to set the specific mood you might choose...   


SO HOW CAN I GET THE BEST FOR LESS?

Price is a complicated question to answer, mainly because it’s hard (but not impossible) to compare apples to apples with bands.  Essentially the difference is between tiered pricing and all-inclusive pricing.   

We made the decision from the beginning to only offer our best package, every time, no tiers, nothing missing, and no surcharges.  We offer the group itself at a standard rate, and allow you to choose to add three options: cocktail services, ceremony services, and our uplighting package.  Also, if you choose we are happy to add-on additional performers to increase the size of the core unit, if you prefer a larger band, though our core is everything needed to fully cover the precise sound of the original songs you enjoy and cherish.
