FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
+ What is a typical length of a concert?
Concerts range between 45 minutes to 2 hours. Typically a concert is 90 minutes without any breaks.
+ Will you take requests for songs for a concert?
We would love to understand what sort of flavor you would like at your event. If you enjoy a special song by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Wadali Brothers, Abida Parveen, of Gurdaas Mann or Sabri Brothers, we want to know. And we will try our best to fit that qawwali into the concert.
+ Will bring your microphones and other sound equipment?
Yes. For Texas concerts, this is easy. We work with a local vendor that can handle our own sound set up and equipment. For concerts outside Texas, the steps are executed differently. Let us know if that is the case, and we can share what has transpired in the past.
+ Do you provide a written contract with clear terms?
Yes, all bookings are confirmed through a contract. Riyaaz's agent will provide you with terms outlining the concert, sound check and post-concert procedures. This ensures you will get the highest quality of music, and none of the tension.
+ How will the musicians arrive to do sound check?
Musicians handle sound check after the sound has been set up, and before the event's start time. Guests are not allowed in the venue during sound check.
+ Are you open to private shows?
Yes. We have performed at primarily commercial events. However, we take of select private events across each year.
+ How do you handle overtime?
If your guests are enjoying the concert, we would like to continue singing and letting you enjoy the evening. Overtime is clearly agreed to within our contract. Before proceeding, the singers will get a verbal commitment from the hosts.
+ How far in advance do you take bookings?
At the moment, we are working on shows up to July 2020. While filling out your event details, please add an approximate date for your event, if you are still finalizing.
