Hi-Tech Duo | Hire a Versatile Hi-Tech Duo for Your Event or Venue

Hi-Tech Duo

Hi-Tech Duo

Hi Tech DuoFirstly you may be wondering what is a hi-tech duo? A hi tech duo is a duo band of two musicians which play and sing alongside backing tracks which produce the other music required for each song. This type of duo band is becoming increasingly popular and can be found performing on-board ferries and cruise ships as well as in most of the top hotels around the world.

In the case of Light and Shade we perform live electric guitar, keyboard and male/female vocals, with our unique customised backing tracks providing the drums/percussion, bass and other instruments required, for example brass or woodwind. On some songs the sound produced is the equivalent of hiring an orchestra!

Why hire a hi-tech duo for your event?

A hi tech duo is a great choice for your event for a number of reasons;

  • Delivers a 'big band sound' capable of entertaining any audience
  • Allows for complete volume control which is not possible with live drums, brass, etc
  • Only requires a small area in order to perform
  • Offers fantastic value for money without reducing the quality of the music

Light and Shade hi tech duo is the perfect choice for hotels, ferry and cruise ships, any venue with nearby residential dwellings or council noise restrictions and for private functions that want a full band sound on a limited budget.

Music Duos | From Wedding Duos to Rock Duos | Hampshire, UK

Music Duos

Music Duos

Of course, when you want to entertain the guests at your wedding or at your venue, you consider live music duos. They can be a great alternative to bands due to having a full sound and not to mention the cost and flexibility as well as compact size. Light and Shade is a 'hi-tech music duo' as we perform alongside our own professionally produced custom backing tracks. In other words, we deliver the same sound of a large band but with lower costs and less floor-space required. It also ensures the music at your wedding or venue will be accurately performed and that a musician having an 'off-day' won't spoil the occasion.

Musical Duo | 2-Piece Musical Duo Band For Hire | Light & Shade

Musical Duo

Musical Duo

Hiring a musical duo can be a sensible decision for a number of reasons:

  • Space - affording a band space can be an issue, especially if the venue is smaller than average or if the floor space usually earns the venue income; for example removing dining tables from a gastro-pub.
  • Budget - Bands can be expensive as usually each member will have their set minimum rate, even if that's the triangle player that only played one note that evening! Bigger is not better when you are paying per head.
  • Requirement - There are cases where a band is not the best choice for the type of event you want to host. If what you want for your event is a musical duo/2-piece band then book us today!
