Hello and congratulations! In addition to our many public appearances, last year Trilogy performed for over 30 weddings and special events all over Michigan and beyond. We are proud to say that we believe Trilogy's performances, professionalism and attention to detail to be unmatched! For a typical wedding schedule we do 4 hours of live music with 3 breaks (4 45's and 3 20's) But, we tailor the breaks for the occasion. We will set up before your guests arrive so that pre-recorded music will be playing for your cocktail hour. If you pick from our song list the band will play your bridal dances live (if you need suggestions we are happy to help there as well). Given enough advance notice we can also learn your bridal dances for live play. Otherwise, we put them on our MP3 and play them when you are ready. It is very popular these days for the bridal party to want an entrance song. Typically, we announce the bridal party and MC any other announcements you would like throughout the evening. We supply a cordless microphone for toasts, prayer etc. We give you the option of having live music or pre-recorded music for dinner. We usually use our MP3 player to play a mix of Frank Sinatra to John Meyer easy listening as people want to save the live music for the dance portion of the evening. One of Trilogy's greatest strengths is our ability to play many genres faithful to the original cut. We can seamlessly move from Frank Sinatra to Bon Jovi to Cee Lo Green and back again. We do not use a set list but instead read the crowd's mood and tailor the party to best suit you and yours. We also feature intricate soaring harmonies backed by authentic and expert music arrangements. On our breaks we again use our MP3 player to play dance party favorites that our band doesn't do. This includes many current song selections. If there are songs you want added to our list or taken off our list we are happy to accommodate. If you are in need of a piano player, guitar player, violinist, harpist, small jazz combo or vocalists for your actual wedding, or for your dinner hour we can provide these services for an additional charge. Again, many thanks for thinking of Trilogy. ~Racquel Viilo Trilogy Vocals/Booking
