Coverband Lara Leaves is know for their full sound and energetic performance. Many weddings and parties get more intimate which might ask for a smaller band regarding space, budget or taste. As an acoustic duo we might not take in a lot a space, but our repertoire and sound is big enough to fit every occasion.
Vocals, backings, guitar, kickdrum and hand-percussion gives you a full band experience with full control over our volume. Perfect for both intimate or bigger celebrations to set the mood with our live music. Add some keys to make this acoustic duo a trio for more musical body and some vocal harmony.
Our music goes along with the vibe since we do not work with a pre made setlist. Easy listening during the reception or maybe more beat so you can try your dance moves? Anything goes!
We do not work with a manager or booking agent. When you contact Lara Leaves you will deal with singer Maartje & guitarist Sander straight away. At first we will let you know if we are still available on your special day and then send you an estimate of the costs according to your date and time.
Via videocall, telephonecall, whatsapp and email we will stay in touch untill the big day arrives. This way we can discuss your wishes and personalize our musical performance to the occasion. Our communication can be in Dutch or English. We can read and understand German, but are hesitant of our own German vocabulary. This is why we will reply in English.
We would love to hear your musical taste, the absolute do's and don'ts and special requests. Because of our years of experience we would love to help in any way we can.
We will send an invoice after our performance. No down payment needed.
Let's get practical
Our most booked program is in a 3 hour period. Here we will play either 3 live sets of 45 minutes per set, or for example a wedding ceremony followed by 2 live sets during the reception. This costs € 850,- included technique but excluded travelexpenses and 9% VAT.
We will take care of the entire musical programming for the time we are present (up to a maximum of 4 hours), including the music during our breaks.
To give our best performance there are some practical things we asks for as an acoustic band. Here we have listed the most important requests:
> Let us know your special requests 2 weeks prior. For a wedding ceremony you can choose a maximum of 5 songs, other occasions 3 songs max.
> A performance area of 3 by 3 meters (and a minimal of 2,5 meters high) with a flat surface and protected against the elements (sun, rain, etc.).
> Plug socket (220V) within 10 meters of our performance area.
> Availability of water, beer and soda.

Wedding Anniversary Paul & Ans
What a great party on the 6th of May! Especially you three made our anniversary spectacular. Everything was right, our requests were played like they were part of your repertoire for years, that asks a lot of preperation. You also felt the vibe of the party perfectly. We could see so much joy in your performance 😄
The dance floor was overcrowded from start to finish. That says is all!! We've had so many enthousiastic reactions. Our communication was also very warm and personal! Many thanks!
