Intimate Parties & Events

The Bill Shreeve Duo provides the perfect live music ambience for cocktail receptions, wedding ceremonies, and more intimate parties and events. The duo features Bill Shreeve on saxophones/ flute and either a pianist or guitarist.

The keyboardist plays key bass as well as piano, and with the use of a drum machine, the sounds of a bass player and drummer are added to make the duo sound like four musicians instead of two! The Duo is far more colorful and entertaining than a solo pianist or guitar, but not much more expensive.

The Bill Shreeve Duo performed every Sunday for over two years at the beautiful Coronado Bay Resort for their famous brunch, testament to the Duo’s popularity.
Featuring a large and varied repertoire of swing and Latin standards from the 30’s to the 70’s, current and classic instrumental jazz and pop hits, the Duo provides just the right musical selections for any age group.

Its all about the sound. A great band with a terrible sound system sounds like a terrible band. A top quality audio experience is what a band is all about. Bill Shreeve Music Productions has taken great pains and spared no expense to create state-of-the-art sound for groups of 20 to 2,000!

In most settings, the Bill Shreeve Duo uses class-A compact amplification that does not require a large area. In larger situations we bring Mackie CR-1604-VLZ and Allen and Heath Mixwizard 16 channel mixers, (2) Crown K-2 (2,500 watt stereo power amps), Klipsch and JBL speakers (up to 8 15-inch main speakers for larger jobs), and Klipsch 18" hi powered subwoofers bi-amped with active crossovers. The system delivers clean transparent and extremely accurate sound reproduction from small venues at low volume to large outdoor events at concert volume levels. A compact disk player maintains the musical ambiance during band breaks. A wireless microphone is available for announcements and Bill Shreeve will MC your event at no extra charge.

If lighting is required and space is available, a professional lighting system is available for an additional $200.00

When the lights go down for dinning and dancing, even a live band loses most or all of its visual appeal without proper stage lighting. However, an exciting light show will create a deeper and more lasting impression of the musical experience for the audience. Professional stage lighting is affordable! Now Aire Play not only sounds great, it's visual presentation is significantly enhanced with professional stage lighting.

Lighting System includes:
• 2,400 watts lighting power
• 16 different lighting scenes
• eight professional par cans with colored gels
• audio controlled or free run progressive chase
• fade or quick change to different scenes or to black out
• system requires only a single 20 amp circuit
• attractive professional appearance.
