Planning a hi-end wedding?

Do you want your wedding to be the talked about event of the year? Do you want to make sure you don’t get just another “wedding band”? Here’s an option for you that will guarantee the most incredible event of your life. The Mixed Nuts will perform all your favorite hits from the decades with professionalism and flair. From Sinatra to The Stones, from the 40’s to the most current hip dance favorites, The Mixed Nuts make each song memorable and fun, yet perform with conviction and authority. Their vast playlist covers every conceivable era of popular music!


Do you often wonder why many bands let the dance floor clear after each song? Pacing is everything in a hi-end event. The Mixed Nuts perform a high-energy seamless show from one song to the next, keeping the dance floor full, like a party is supposed to be. New Orleans is known for its parties and The Mixed Nuts know how to keep it rolling all night!


Some bands love to show up in various different outfits that range from “kind of formal” to “what is he wearing?” The Mixed Nuts prides itself on its presentation. The guys in the band are always in tuxedos for formal events, while the ladies are always in elegant gowns and apporopriate attire. When you hire The Mixed Nuts for your event, you won’t have to worry if the band is going to show up in blue jeans!


Ever go to a wedding reception where you have to shout over the music? Ever have to leave the room or leave the party because the band is just too loud? These are sound problems. A professional sound engineer who knows the act intimately will never let that happen. That’s why The Mixed Nuts hire their own professional sound mixer who works exclusively with them to ensure that every show is flawless. He knows who is singing each song, what solos are coming up, and all the intricacies of mixing the instruments and voices to sound like a concert or a record, not a garage band, and all at a volume level that is appropriate to the venue and the event. The band uses in-ear monitors which brings the stage volume down to virtually zero, giving the sound engineer ultimate control of the volume.
