Our lead vocalist is a powerhouse by herself! However, it’s YOUR special event. If you feel your vision is bigger than just our basic 6-piece band, feel free to add some more spice with additional vocalists fronting the band! Your choice of male and/or female additional vocalists and however many you want! All of the vocalists at APX are extremely seasoned and have high-energy, top-notch performance characteristics.
Make your next event a blast by adding a two to four piece horn section to the APX band! Consisting of trumpet, trombone, saxophones and more, adding a horn section can give your event the BIG touch it deserves.
Make your event even more spectacular with a string section, available to play alongside the band or in a separate setting. A small group could play as a classical string quartet, or even a violin and harp duo harp, or both, e.g. before the ceremony, during the processional, and during the party sets. The combination of Harp and Violin is an incredible sound, and is definitely a unique touch for the perfect wedding ceremony and/or special event.
