Booking us to sing for your event… The Swingin' Blue Stars perform to honor our veterans—of every age. We are also available for private parties and events. Our programs vary in length from 30 minutes to 2 or more hours, with the one-hour program being the most popular. We provide our own sound equipment, and we use backing tracks on CD for musical accompaniment. For these shows we charge a flat rate of $600 plus mileage from Pleasanton at .40/mile-- for performances within the greater SF Bay Area (within a 90 miles of Pleasanton) --no matter how long or short the performance. Outside of this distance, but within California, the price is $800 plus travel expenses for 3 performers. Call for pricing if outside of the State. NOTE: for weekends in December and holidays (including Veteran's Day), the rate is $650 plus mileage (within the Greater Bay Area). We offer a discounted rate of $500 to Bay Area military and veteran's groups, including all branches of the military, the VFW and American Legion. The money we collect pays for gasoline, uniforms, sound equipment, performance-related rentals, equipment maintenance and musical arrangements – and allows us to donate our time to provide a number of free performances a year. These are usually for the VA Hospitals, Stand Downs, local parades and fundraisers for the USS Hornet Museum and other national memorials. "Red, White and Blue USO Revue" Show-- with live band: this is a full blown production with a five piece band. Rates depend upon location of theatre, sound equipment provided and length of the show. Call or email us for pricing: 925-980-8021 or firstname.lastname@example.org We normally perform songs of the 1940’s and 50’s. But we also sing hits of the 60’s. We will take special requests if given enough notice. Patriotic songs (as well as our national anthem) are also in our repertoire. There are three principal singers in our group, but sometimes four will sing at our big band USO shows. This provides the best sound in 3-part harmony.
Though we receive many requests for
weekday, luncheon programs (and can do them sometimes), it is easier for us to schedule an evening or weekend performance. All of our singers have regular jobs, and during the week it is difficult for us to arrive at an evening function much before 5:30 or 6:00 PM. Please keep this in mind when booking and planning your event.
