Lindsay 's Christmas Party in Coffs Harbour , Nov 2019
We hired the hoedown band for our Xmas party and they were fantastic. They were very professional, neatly presented and they sounded great on the night. We were a small crowd but their lead singer Dawn was very interactive and educational with her dance moves. The band knew their instruments and songs very well and i would certainly recommend them to people that enjoy the country style of entertainment.
The Hoedown Band plays a range of classic country rock, country and new country songs. We can perform either a concert full of great up-beat songs, all singalong favourites or a WILD WEST Party which adds called dances to the mix - a combination of simple line and american barn (bush) dances guaranteed to get everyone involved even if you have never done this kind of dancing before!
The song set covers classic songs like Jambalaya (Hank Williams) and Folsom Prison Blues (Johnny Cash), through the country rock of bands like the Eagles to new country from the Dixie Chicks, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood and many more. We specialise in up-beat country music that appeals to a wider audience, with many singalong favourites in our set list.
Our singer Dawn also has a repertoire of line and barn dances which are ideal for audiences who've never had the opportunity to take part in this highly enjoyable form of social dance. Dawn's bubbly personality and her technique of demonstrating the dances from the dance floor means that everyone wants to get involved in the fun. You can read some comments from satisfied customers on our website as well as hear sound clips and see video and photographs of the band in action.
We can supply a four piece band including a female vocalist / caller, guitarist / vocalist, bass guitar and drums. Additional musicians are available at an extra cost (please enquire).
The band is fully self-contained, by this we mean that we provide all the equipment that we need to perform. All you need to provide is a space for us to play and at least two safe mains (240 VAC) power sockets. The band is also fully insured and the equipment has regular safety checks.
We can customize the format and duration of the performance to suit your event but we tend to be asked for two 45 to 75 minute sets. We mix and match the concert material with the hoedown and line dancing to give a balanced programme of entertainment for you and your guests. We can also play appropriate recorded music through the PA system during any breaks either from our library of country tracks or from an iPOD supplied by you.
