Prices vary based on location. Please email for a detailed quote.
1. How far will the band travel?
Although the band is based out of Nashville, we are available to travel any distance. We can make all of the travel arrangements as well, so it’s no extra time on your end.
2. Are there any special requirements?
The band does need a minimum space of 16’x 16′. We recommend 16’x 24′. We also recommend having a stage at your event if possible as it helps everyone see the band and gives the entire audience a more enjoyable experience and better interaction with us. Staging is usually available for rent either from your event space or other local rental company.
3. What kind of power does the band need for it’s equipment?
We require two (prefer 3) 20 amp power circuits within 20 feet of the band. We ask that these circuits be used only by the band so there is no interruption in the show.
4. Can the band leader DJ and MC for us?
Yes! We can DJ music on our breaks or can play any music you wish to provide us on IPod or Iphone. We can also do announcements and introductions and allow you access to our mic so you can do toasts and other announcements. We can even create a personalized set list for the band breaks so you can hear all of your favorite songs!
5. What makes 12South special?
We created the 12South band to be more than just a typical band. We offer a SHOW with non-stop action and entertainment! With a versatile group of singers who can do anything from funk to country to the latest pop hits, our combination of male and female vocalists opens up a wide variety of song choices and creates a dynamic energy on stage. All of our background singers also serve as backup dancers, and you can expect fun dancing the whole night through. Backup dancers can even lead your group in line dances!
6. What if I have a special song I want played?
If we don’t already know it, we can learn your special song to make your event the celebration you want it to be. 12 South will learn up to 3 songs at no additional charge.
