Please read these FAQ's before requesting a show booking:
Q: How much do you charge for a show?
A: There are many variables in pricing a DOD show, which depends on: The event, the time of year and the location/travel distance. Please fill out the"Quote" form at the bottom of this page, or just email us with questions and we will respond promptly.
Q: How long is your show?
A: Again, depends on the gig. Our longest show is 4 hrs. Regardless of the length of the show, DOD takes 15 minute breaks between each set.
Q: How far in advance should we try to book DOD?
A: As soon as possible! DOD books 75% of it's shows over one year in advance.
Q: How far will you travel?
A: Within 150 miles of Peoria, Illinois
Q: I see that you have a show booked on the date we are wanting you, so are we poop-outta luck?
A: Not always. Sometimes Fairs, Festivals and Clubs give us our choice of dates and will work with us at moving things around. Go ahead and ask. It couldn't hurt.
Q: Does DOD play wedding receptions?
A: Yes, but read on.
Q: Are you guys loud?
A: Loud is actually just one's matter of opinion. But yes, we've been told we are a little louder than average. Any imposed noise ordinances must be discussed before booking or signing of a contract
Q: What happens if it rains and we haven't made the proper plans for a rainy day?
A: You pay us, and we go home.
Q: Will you learn a song for our event?
A: No, sorry.
Q: Can the DJ plug into your equipment and play before your show?
A: It depends on the situation, but we will try to do anything possible to make any event work smoothly.
Q: Will it matter if we decide at the last minute to hire another act that will play before or after DOD?
A: YES! We would need to know of any other entertainment sharing the same stage, the same day, before a price quote can be given. We don't mind doing multi-band shows as long as we have all of the details worked out ahead of time, as there is more work involved.
Q: Are there any special requirements on our end?
A: Yes. We will need a level stage. We will need adequate "clean" power. We will need a few refreshments and hotel rooms, depending on the situation.
Q: Will a couple of orange power cords run to the middle of the grassy stage be sufficient?
A: No. Again, we need a stage and adequate power.
Q; How long does it take you to set up and tear down?
A: DOD has larger than average production. Currently we take (about) 3-6 hrs to set-up depending on the amount of equipment we are using for the show, 2-3 hrs to tear down. We like a minimum of 1 hr between sound check and show time, We will arrive 4-7 hrs before show time or before your guests arrive.
Q: Can my cousins sons band play a couple tunes on your equipment?
Well, are you still interested?
