Booked 26 times on FixTheMusic

The Impresarios are a five-piece acoustic band that discard the formalities of the stage and are free to roam, interacting with the audience in fun and engaging ways.

From classic songs of the golden era of swing to modern day hits, they spontaneously curate the perfect musical setlist for each event, along with taking requests from the guests.

This alliance of experienced international performers are based in both Geneva and Nice, and are fluent in English, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.

Between them they have given shows in 43 countries, performing for heads of state, royals and celebrities at many of the world’s most prestigious events.

We're regularly booked to perform for weddings and events at The French Farmhouse in Montaigu-de-Quercy, France.

FAQs

How long is an Impresarios’ performance?

A show normally consists of 2 or 3 sets, each 30 - 35 minutes in length, like a series of miniconcerts where the musicians move around and interact with the guests as they serenade, are playful, flirtatious, high energy and above all, incredibly entertaining!

When’s the best time for you to start performing?

The best scenario is when guests are seated and halfway through the starter or main course. We will make a stronger impact and bring more joy if we have the element of surprise on our side! Alternatively the first can be a cocktail set, which can set the mood with classic swing and great easy listening music and as always with Impresarios' unique brand of immersive entertainment.

What kind of stage do you need?

We are totally mobile and love to interact with our audience, so we don’t require a fixed stage.

How far do you travel?

Our musicians have played at events on every continent apart from Antarctica. In fact, we are always sure to have our passports with us ready for any emergency musical situations!

How much room do you need to perform?

If there's room for a waiter, there's room for us!

Are The Impresarios very loud?

Enough to make a party but we don’t follow loud amplified music. Background music before we perform is no problem, however it must be turned right down five to ten mins before we start. People's ears become accustomed to a certain volume, so turning off the music when we start doesn't work and the impact of our performance is lessened. It's not easy to follow The Impresarios so any DJ or amplified band that follows will at least have volume on their side!

We have a big event, how many people is too many for an Impresarios performance?

For events with over 200 guests it's usually better for us to use wireless headset microphones (tech rider supplied upon request). However, even when using microphones, we still keep the intimacy of playing to tables whilst allowing other guests to talk, at least at the beginning anyway! This way we can add more volume later in the evening when the party gets wild!

What about sound checks?

Only if we're being mic'd up. See above.

Do you have a setlist?

No two audiences are the same, so no two shows can be the same and we can't stick to any set list. We love to know if you have a favourite musical genre, and if we can make it work, we'll always learn a special song. During our show we move table to table and we need to have the freedom to choose whichever song we think will work at that moment or to be able to take requests from guests on the night. So you will just have to trust us!

Do you guys need food and drink?

We do a lot of travelling and put a lot of energy into every performance so we have to stay as healthy as possible. A good hot healthy meal will always ensure that we're on top form for you. A chef will often wish to serve the guests first and the musicians after. This is totally understandable and correct however as we usually start performing while the guests are eating, that’s impractical. We prefer to be able to eat before, and we find that as long as this is explained in advance, chefs are usually fine with it.

Do you bring all your instruments, even when you fly to an event?

We bring everything we need apart from the contrabass if we have to fly. So we just ask for a double bass to be supplied, this just makes everyone's lives easier. Airlines can get very confused and alarmed if we turn up with such a big instrument!

Is there anything else we need to know before we book you?

The Impresarios are very versatile and have dealt with a lot of unusual requests. Always feel free to discuss with us any ideas, or special requirements you may have and we'll do our best to deliver a bespoke package which will really work for you.
