InVersion Band at the Renaissance Dallas Addison Hotel

InVersion Band loves nothing more than entertaining audiences all across the United States. This weekend we had the pleasure of entertaining over a thousand guests at the Renaissance Addison Hotel's "Crystal Ballroom". One of the larger event rooms in the DFW Metroplex, InVersion Band provided our eleven piece band for the dancing fun and a jazz standard pianist for our guest's cocktail hour.

Our client's event also featured a full blown casino complete with gambling tables and they even had real slot machines. The huge stage was equipped with thirty foot projection screens on each side, in which our guests were able to display their special Christmas party corporate video and fun computer graphics while the InVersion Band rocked the room! The waitstaff's service was excellent during our guest's four-course dinner and the hotel's PSAV and catering management made the band feel welcome. As you can see, the table settings were first class as well.

Our special thanks to an outstanding manager, Mr. Shezad Thobani, the lead catering manager, was extremely helpful with assisting all the vendors and making sure that the band had everything we needed to have a successful show. We appreciate Shezad and all the wonderful staff that cleared all obstacles to make sure that our client was happy and their timeline stayed on track. Mr. Thorbani was certainly the Renaissance's "MVP" of the night.

We highly recommend the Renaissance Addison. If you'd like to reach out to them to reserve your wedding or corporate event, just call 972.386.6000. To have InVersion Band entertain your group while you're there, just call us at 214.995.6175!

Why hire a live band for your wedding reception?

There are a lot of options out there for entertainment for wedding receptions. You may be asking yourself, why should I go through the trouble of hiring a band instead of perhaps a DJ? Well, the answer is simple. The RIGHT live band will deliver the "live concert scenario" at your wedding. 

Live bands are extremely interactive. Most premium wedding bands these days are at least 8 piece bands and go all the way up to 14 piece bands. That gives you a lot of people on stage that are walking, talking, musical instrument playing, fun machines.  Aside from the improvisation, ad-libs with the crowd, etc., live bands deliver multiple professional performers that understand how to read a room and how to get the crowd engaged in the show, direct activities, and quite simply, get the guests out of their seats and involved. Most live band performers have hundreds, if not thousands of events and know exactly what to do and when to do it.

Live music cannot be topped by recordings. When hiring the right band, they're going to bring a pretty sophisticated sound system to your reception that is capable of handing an 8+ piece band. This, in combination with the live instrument's unamplified sounds, cannot be compared to a recording.

Most live bands will also have some sort of DJ going on during the set breaks and activities. While they may not be as sophisticated as a pro DJ, having a live band at your wedding is certainly a two-fer in that department. Most bands will carry a laptop or mp3 player for this purpose. You or your bridal planner can always coordinate a simple playlist with them to play during your garter and bouquet toss, cake cutting, etc.

Lighting: As opposed to other types of entertainment, having a live band, on a stage is literally the centerpiece of setting the mood and ambiance at your reception. Most live bands carry a LARGE array of lighting that will dazzle your guests. Make sure to ask your band leader about their lighting. Premium acts have multiple trusses setup with lots of different scenes and effects that will dazzle your reception's guests and simply make sure that your band isn't playing 'in the dark'.

Emmitt Smith at the Glass Cactus with IVB

Certainly the highlight of our year, Emmitt Smith very graciously posed for photos with the band and even signed a ball for our bass player, Rick Brown. It's not every day you get to share the stage with the #1 running back in NFL history. Definitely one of our proudest moments! Hanging out with 'the warrior' Emmitt Smith, at the Glass Cactus, during a corporate private event for one of our favorite clients! It just doesn't get any better than this!! Emmitt gave a great speech and then took Q&A with the audience. Super charming guy with a great sense of humor.

Pegasus Ball 2018 - An Amazing Charity Event Highlighted with Incredible Donations from the Dallas A-List

As many of our fans know, we were selected this year to perform at the 30th Annual Pegasus Ball. This year's event was truly amazing and raised an incredible sum for children and adults with autism. Gina Marx and the gang at Autism Treatment Center really out did themselves this year with the gala. Held at the beautiful Fairmont Hotel in downtown Dallas, InVersion Band was completely thrilled and honored to entertain such an amazingly generous alumni. We are flattered and tremendously honored further when we were asked to play The Pegasus Ball for 2019 and 2020. With Rex Tillerson as the honorary chair and marquee speaker, the Pegasus Ball delivered on it's reputation as one of Dallas' top 5 gala events of the year.

Here are a few of the hundreds of photos taken of this wonderful event. The crowd rocked the room!

9 Things Brides Worry About When Planning Their Wedding

Live Band for Wedding Receptions

Planning your own wedding can turn even the most level headed bride, into a basket case. Coordinating dozens of vendors, the wedding party, while staying within your budget, can be a tall task. Here is a list of things that we've seen brides struggle with over the years. We hope that it helps you get ahead of all this. Please don't be shy to call or email us for a referral.

  1. The Wedding Planner 
    We highly recommend that you get one. Over the years, we've worked with some amazing planners that will think of things and take care of details that you won't believe were possible or even a thing. Let someone else do this for you. This will allow you to not be stressed out, make sure everything and everyone is taken care of, and keep your wedding on track on your big day. Nothing is more frustrating than paying a lot of money for your big day and then losing an hour of more of your reception time to delays. Even though most planners offer 'day of' services, we recommend that you get them involved as soon as possible. 'Day of' situations leave your planner little time to get ahead of a potential snag in your itinerary.
  2. The Venue
    The venue is a pretty important factor. Some venues lock you into catering companies that are exclusive to them and some don't. Of course, the size of your room will need to scale to your guest list. We highly recommend to start shopping venues at least a year ahead of your big day (they book at least that far in advance). If you're planning on having a DJ or band, the venue's acoustics will have a big impact on how good they sound. 
  3. The Dress
  4. The Budget
    Don't be afraid to go second hand. There are a TON of groups on Facebook that specialize in gently used wedding stuff. Take advantage of them. If your planner is doing this, this is an area that you can gently help her out and save yourself a ton of money in the process.
  5. Who To Invite?
    Make a list with your partner and stick to it. Don't be afraid to not invite people that you think may be a distraction for your big day.
  6. The Music 
    If you're looking for a band InVersion Band has your wedding reception covered! We do have a lot of contacts in the DJ world too. Please don't be shy about reaching out for a referral!
  7. The Catering & Alcohol
    As stated before under #2, this can sometimes be locked in by your venue. If not, your planner and other vendors may be able to give you recommendations. We certainly can give you multiple recommendations. If the catering is stretching your budget, consider going with a cash bar instead of an open bar. It's been my experience that guests won't mind at all.
  8. The Flowers
  9. The Photographer

    InVersion provides at GREAT preferred vendor list for all these things. Over the years, we've developed relationships with wedding vendors that are not only easy to work with, but also just incredibly nice people that go above and beyond to make you happy. You can see that vendor list here.

Let us take one thing off your list!
