Deposits & Payment Info
We require a deposit to hold the date for your event. We have several options for our clients including direct payment using our QuickBooks invoicing system, mailing your deposit directly or through our band account with Gigmasters. The remaining balance can be paid by Visa or check within one week of the performance. Checks can be made out to Mansfield Avenue Band, LLC and mailed to our studio address (2131 Five Mile Line Road, Penfield, NY 14526). Cash payment will also be accepted on the day of the event .
Performances & Set length
Mansfield Avenue performs as both an Acoustic Duo (Guitar/Piano or Guitar/Drums) and usually performs either two or three 50-minute sets consisting of approximately 28-38 songs in total. The full band (Guitar/Keys/Drums) typically plays three 50-minute sets. Set length can be tailored to your particular needs and billed out in 30-minute segments. We require 20-minute breaks between sets.
Between the acoustic duo and full band, Mansfield Ave has a repertoire of over 180 songs for you to choose from. We also frequently learn new material for our clients but ask for at least six weeks notice to ensure that the new material is ready for prime time.
Sound and Lighting Equipment
Main Sound System: We select our sound system based on the size of the venue and expected number of guests. In smaller venues, we use a pair of QSC 1000 watt K12 powered PA speakers that put out clean, high fidelity sound. For larger events, we pair the K12s with the 1,000-watt dual 12” low-frequency QSC KSub series speakers. Both Marc and Chris have over 20 years experience running sound and have played in a wide range of venues. Mansfield Ave has been praised for its ability to play to the venue and keep the volume at levels appropriate to the venue and setting. Secondary Sound System: We can also provide a second sound system including one or more wireless microphones for use during the ceremony or other components of your event. Lighting: Depending on the client's needs, we can provide stage lighting using both side (2) and overhead (2) LED lighting banks.
