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!
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.
InVersion Band played it's last wedding of the 2018 wedding season last night. It was our busiest year and the last date of the season always invites us to reflect on all the wonderful couples and events that we've played so far in 2018. Our last show was for Mr. and Mrs. Logan Downing and we played at the The Grand Ivory right outside of Dallas in Leonard Texas! Shelby and Logan are a wonderful couple and wish them many years of happiness! Their families and friends were an amazing audience!
With the season coming to a close, we also strive to figure out how we can take our show to new heights and move the band along to the "the next level". We can promise our fans that big changes in production are coming soon and as always, InVersion Band will always provide the ultimate in talent and personal service when it comes to providing entertainment for your event! We'll have a BUNCH of pictures and video when the photographers get them ready! But in the meantime, here are a few preliminary shots of setup at of our last 2018 wedding season show!

Last weekend, InVersion Band had the honor and privilege to entertain Meredith Shipp and Alex Carpenter on their most special day. Meredith looked breathtaking and dashing Alex was the envy of the room. We wish Alex and Meredith all the best wishes and love in their lives together. We thank them for selecting us. Their beautiful families and friends danced all night and warmly made us feel welcome.
Their reception was held at Park City Club located in the heart of the University Park & Highland Park communities. Their staff, from the head of security (our new friend Scott), whom we worked with all afternoon to get our extensive lighting and sound up to the 17th floor, to the director of catering Hala Askar, were all a joy to work with. Park City Club has a full panoramic view spectacular view of the Dallas skyline. Their ballroom offers a sense of old world luxury and classic design. InVersion Band highly recommends that you consider them for your upcoming wedding or corporate event.
As always, our friends a Chic Fleur Wedding and Events did an amazing job planning the wedding. We highly recommend them. They offer several different levels of service for their clients. We have worked with Whitney Bailey on many events and she is one of the best planners around.
Here a few pictures of the band tuning up before the party started! More pictures of the party in full swing, on the way!

Meet Mr. & Mrs. Tyler and Sarah Atkins!
There are couples and families that stand out in your mind over the years for being the sweetest & kindest people to work for. Entertaining two families and making sure the bride and groom are 110% happy is a sometimes challenging, but these two and their families made our job a dream. We really enjoyed performing for them and their energy all night long showed us that they loved us back. A beautiful bride and handsome groom in an elegant venue made our night a lovely experience.
The Carlisle Room is located in the historic and newly renovated Lone Star Gas building in the heart of downtown Dallas. Twenty foot ceilings, terrazzo floors and marble pillars are just a few of the highlights of this historic 1930’s Art Deco design. The addition of a private bridal and groom’s suite is what it means to have your cake and eat it too.

This year, InVersion Band's cup ranneth over this year with some really great holiday parties. We certainly love these events and love our customers that call on us to entertain their company's personnel. Having a band at your event can make your party a huge success. Choosing the right band is super important. Here are a few things to look for when looking for the right group to entertain your guests. Aside from sounding and looking great, hiring a band that is well funded / well equipped, is key. There are a million things that can go wrong with a band's equipment and personnel during or before a show. Unplanned breakdowns can throw a wet blanket on your party before it even gets started. Make sure your band has backup systems for their mixers and other equipment that can be instantly substituted if something goes wrong. Also, if the band leader / ownership isn't easy to work with and is inflexible during the event, you could have a nightmare on your hands. Hiring amateurs or start up party bands may be a cheaper option. But, even if the band sounds and looks good, if they aren't event veterans that are prepared for the worst scenarios of gear or other unplanned issues, your party could come to a grinding halt in the middle of the fun or never even launch.
Another BIG factor in planning your private party is choosing your venue. MOST hotels and event venues are extremely well run while others are apathetic to your vendor's needs, or have major technical problems like power issues, or broken freight elevators. Making sure your vendors have quick and appropriate access to the loading docks is imperative. If your vendors have to make dozens of trips through long narrow corridors, it could be difficult for your event to start on time. Also, make sure the venue allows your vendors to get there as early as they require (within reason) to navigate any load-in obstacles.
Choosing your planner is extremely important. We can't say enough good things about many good planners we've worked with. This week Steve Kemble with A Dose of Sass won our most fabulous prize. He's organized, easy to work with, and most of all FUN! We have recommendations for venues, planners, catering, etc. Just click here!
With that said, here are few pictures of the venues we played this week! We certainly enjoyed playing for our clients this week and hope they all enjoyed InVersion Band! This week, we were at Le Meridian Stoneleigh, The Fairmont and The Perot Museum.
Kudos to the staff at Le Meridian and The Fairmont for their exceptional service.
What a gorgeous room & the stage was set to party!
