Live music for every occasion - Whether you're having a wedding, corporate event, sit down dinner or manage a music venue, live music can take any event to the next level. It can create the perfect relaxed atmosphere or have your dance floor packed all night.
Performing live is so much more than playing songs, there's audience interaction, reading the crowd, mixing songs into one another and so much more. These are things the tricks have mastered over the years and they guarantee to make your event stand out from the rest.
By taking inspiration from DJ's The Tricks have crafted a number of medley's, allowing them to transition into songs without stopping.
This allows them to keep a constant flow of music, it creates more excitement and ensures the dancefloor is always full. It also allows the band to fit more songs into each set which is great for everyone.
The Tricks are masters at reading the crowd and will easily tailor their set on the fly to suit each audience. In addition to this they like to interact with the audience by initiating dance off's and other nifty tricks.
The Tricks come complete with a full sound and light system suitable for up to 200 people (bigger systems available on request). This system comes inclusive with an iPad full of music playlists for between sets.
The Tricks is made up of vocals/guitar, bass/vocals, drums/vocals and keyboard/vocals (optional)
The Tricks can feature the addition of a keyboard player who helps take the performance to the next level. Not only does he play keyboard but also incorporates synths, Talkbox and lead vocals.
By adding this 4th member it allows The Tricks to play songs that wouldn't be possible as a trio, opening up more musical genres. Not only that but it creates a fuller sound and a more energised performance. The Tricks Four-Piece is perfect for larger events such as Corporate Events, Award Ceremonies and Charity Balls.
