We can supply live music for a full-on country hoedown and line dance experience, and come on down for just the best party ever!
The Hoedown Band is one of the few bands in the country that can supply a full country hoedown and line dance experience. We play a range of classic country rock, country and new country songs and instrumentals as well as playing hoedown / barn dance and country style line dances. We have many years experience in providing music for a wide range of corporate and private functions and will help ensure that your special event runs smoothly and that everyone has a good time. The song set covers a wide range of material from classics like Jambalaya and Folsom Prison Blues, through the country rock from bands like the Eagles to new country from the likes of the Dixie Chicks, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood. If dancing is more your cup of coffee, then we do a mix of traditional Hoedown material, common American dances and line dance as requested. We cover all the main bases of square and traditional American Dances such as the Virginia Reel and can add in line dances and mix in country songs suitable for free form dancing. We find that our approach to calling, and the mix of dances is ideal for audiences who may be not be familiar with hoedown or line dancing, or indeed any kind of dancing at all. We have been successfully playing at American themed events, country music clubs and to American ex-pats for a number of years and have often had return bookings so I guess we must be doing something right. There are two basic options for band line-ups. The first option is a Hoedown Party which is a freeform dance / concert set with a number of line and barn dances as required. This option is our most popular offering and mixes popular up tempo country hits from all periods with enough dancing to keep everyone involved. This option features a five piece band of singer/caller, guitar/singer, banjo/mandolin, bass guitar and kit drums. If you are looking for a more traditional barn dance with a few line dances and songs thrown in, then we can supply a five piece band including a caller/singer, fiddle, guitarist/vocalist, bass guitar and kit drums for a more dance orientated event . The band is fully self-contained, by this we mean that we provide all the equipment that we need to perform including PA and a basic lighting rig. All you need to provide is a space for us to play and at least two safe 13 amp power sockets. The band is also fully insured and the equipment has regular PAT safety checks.
Thanks for the feedback, we really appreciate it.
