The Fever is not an ordinary event band. We stand above and go beyond to ensure your wedding is the most amazing day of your life. We offer by-phone and in-person consultations and provide an extensive wedding planning guide to help us cover all the details, ideas, choices and considerations.

The Fever offers many packages and options. We customize the music to fit your wedding day flow, your preferences, your personal style. And, we understand everyone has a different budget and that everyone has different preferences. For some, the most important part of their wedding is the food, for others it's the venue or the view, for some it's only about family, and for some it's about celebrating and dancing with friends and family. Let's talk about what's important to you, and then we can talk through options and packages that will match your style and your budget. Our various band sizes can accomodate a variety of budgets. The additional options we offer can thrill the most sophisticated tastes, and add falir to the most spectacular events.
Live music during cocktails brings vitality & sophistication and interaction while guests mingle. It creates an upbeat, celebrative atmosphere filled with exciting anticipation for the party to come. The Fever is proud to boast some of the greatest jazz musicians in Colorado and beyond. Take advantage of their expertise! Instrumentation can vary greatly- solo, duo, trio, quartet, on up to the full band. Instrumental ensembles work beautifully if there is to be live music with vocals for dinner, or if the cocktail hour is in a separate room or location. Or, an ensemble with vocals as described for dinner could be the perfect fit if there's no live music planned for dinner. Genres played can be jazz standards (Miles Davis, Cole Porter, Louis Armstrong, etc) or they can mix it up with some funk jazz fusion (Herbie Hancock, George Benson, Grover Washington, Pat Metheny). We also offer bluegrass ensembles! It all depends on your tastes. We are experts at playing just the right music to create or fit the mood and can make suggestions that will fit your personal style and event.
Dinner Ensembles: Live music during dinner adds a lively ambiance without overshadowing or interrupting the focus- dinner table conversation. Genres that work well for dinner are jazz, soul and contemporary pop ballads with vocals. Having live music during dinner gives the guests a chance to enjoy the slower songs the band won't have a chance to play during dancing (for example, songs by Etta James, Frank Sinatra, Cole Porter, Bill Withers, Beatles, Ray Charles and contemporary artists such as Norah Jones, Ray LaMontagne, Van Morrison, Diana Krall and Adele, to name a few). Male and female vocals are available. We are extremely sensitive to volume to during dinner hour- we know that conversation is the focus and we will ensure your guests will be able to enjoy their conversations, and the music, too!
Ceremony Music: Live music for wedding ceremonies brings a level of elegance and distinction that you just can't achieve with a recording. The Fever's musicians are exceptional and play classical, jazz or instrumental pop. Using musicians who are already in the band can be more cost effective than bringing in outside musicians. On the other hand, you may be interested in alternate instrumentation or genres, and in this case we do work with fantastic traditional string ensembles, as well as bluegrass groups. Cost of adding ceremony to any package below depends on the instrumentation, whether the musicians are also in the band, or if we bring in additional musicians, location, song selection and the length of play. Typically we quote by the hour for ceremony, and this includes about 15-30 minutes of prelude music while guests arrive, then approximately 30 minutes for the ceremony. We offer guitar, piano, upright bass, flute, clarinet, sax, cello, violin, viola and voice. We work with exceptional classical musicians if you are interested in a traditional string ensemble.
"The Fever's instrumental ensembles enchant the senses with music that explores, excites and paints by mood. The musicians weave their stories with soulful grooves and uplifting solos. Passionate, honest and present, The Fever’s instrumentalists are simply- and wonderfully- extraordinary!"
THE FEVER'S BAND DESCRIPTIONS:
4pc band. This smaller band delivers a fantastic sound & plays everything from classical, jazz, & soul to Motown, funk, pop & rock. I recommend this band for limited budgets, very small parties or venues with greater space restrictions. The small ensemble does limit the number of instrumental "voices", but is perfect for jazz, soul, pop, blues and rock. For Motown, funk, 70's, 80's and contemporary hits, our 5pc is recommended as the minimum band size.
The 5pc band delivers a fantastic sound and is recommended when space is limited (our 4pc band is also available for even tighter space restrictions) or for smaller budgets. This line up consists of drums, bass, guitar, keys, male & female lead vocals and 3 to 4 part harmonies. The musicians play everything from classical to jazz, soul, funk, Motown, disco, pop, blues & rock and this line up totally rocks.
The 6pc is the same as the 5pc, but adds a horn for added energy, a variety of "voices" playing solos, and for all those signature horn lines so well known in Motown, funk & rock. Our sax players are multi-instrumentalists who may sing, play baritone, tenor, alto or soprano sax, as well as flute, clarinet, harmonica, key or synth and/or hand percussion, such as tambourine, shakers &/or congas). If budget and space allows, this is the smallest "big" band that we recommend for high energy dancing to a variety of genres. The horn makes the difference!
Our 7pc band is our signature band, we add another phenomenal female singer (for variety of leads, great backups and fun energy)or we add another horn to create a high energy horn section with harmonized lines & variety of additional instrumentation. The energy onstage between the vocalists, the instrumentalists and the crowd is fantastic, heartfelt, honest and exciting. Definitely recommend this band for events with approx 100 guests, more or less.
Our 8pc line up includes a 2-piece horn section playing those great signature lines popular in so many songs, plus both of the Fever's female powerhouse vocalists, 3 great male singers, drums, bass, keys/organ/synth, guitar, hand percussion, and more. If you'd like even more excitement & energy, you may want to consider bringing in a fantastic percussionist, to add funky "can't help but dance" beats on the congas, bongos and a variety of cool percussion instruments.
9pc, 10pc or 11pc bands. For the most spectacular events. We add to our 8pc line up a percussionist to play congas, hand drums and other fun percussions, added pieces to the horn section (trumpet, trombone) for a big full sound & an exciting show.
