Dance set 2/3 - can be “Led Israeli” - a selection of Israeli folk dances led and called by ourselves; circle, partner and line dances. This brings everyone together and especially popular if there are non-Jewish guests. 

 

DJ - We work with an excellent DJ team to provide the non-Jewish music for which you can supply a playlist.

Usually the last hour is reserved for the DJ but often there will also be a set between courses.

The DJ would provide stage and dance floor lighting.  Room lighting is charged extra.

 

2nd Band: We also work with other bands who would provide the non-Jewish music for your party.

 

We will supply a full PA system.

The size of the room could affect the size of the system and therefore the cost.

Microphones will be provided for speeches if necessary.

Shir can MC the evening if required and advise on production aspects - running order, lights etc.

We would also meet with you to discuss the music, running order etc.

We will coordinate with the Rabbi/Chazan and other service providers if necessary

We would need access to the venue 2-3 hours before the start of the event.

The size of the event could require more or less musicians.
