2018 Band Packages and Pricing
Super Deluxe is currently booking appearances for 2018 featuring our most popular line-up of live bands that we have offered since the group started in 2008!
Produced and managed by founder and band leader, Wilton Elder, Super Deluxe has developed into an award-winning, boutique music group that provides planning, consultation, booking, set-up/ tear-down, day-of coordination, music performance, and much more!
You will have the benefit of bypassing expensive booking agencies and working directly with the artist to get the attention and value you and your event demand.
Not only can you get your Super Deluxe party band in three different sizes, you also have the opportunity of working directly with Wilton, the only music contact you’ll need, for all your party music ideas, including audio gear rentals, audio techs, mobile DJ/ emcee service, classical ensembles, jazz combos, instrumental soloists, and of course Charleston’s Premier Party Band!
Scroll down for more information, and thank you for your interest in hiring Super Deluxe!
The 5-pc. configuration is the core Super Deluxe group, which features band leader, Wilton Elder, on lead vocals and saxophone, plus a full rhythm section comprised of one keyboardist, guitarist, bassist, and drummer.
This 5-member combo is great for rehearsal dinners, small weddings, corporate events, and private parties, and can easily cover the entire range of popular and regional music that you want to hear at your party, from Sinatra swing and New Orleans jazz to mainstream classic rock, funk and your favorite hip hop hits!
The 6-pc. band expands from the 5-pc. lineup to include a lead female vocalist!
Over the years, some of the finest female vocalists in South Carolina have joined Wilton on the front line. Kanika Moore, Aisha Kenyetta, Christian “Black Diamond” Smalls, Joy Gregory, Zandrina Dunning, and many more have appeared with Super Deluxe from Tennessee to Florida over the last 5 years.
By adding a lead female vocalist to your Super Deluxe band, your party sound track opens up to all the classic soul and jazz, 70’s disco, 80’s synth pop, and modern radio hits from some of the all-time great divas including Aretha Franklin, Etta James, and Whitney Houston, to Mariah Carey and Norah Jones, to Rihanna and Taylor Swift!
The 6-member combo has been the most highly-requested ensemble for Super Deluxe over the years! What other party band can pack so many sounds into a band with only 6 people?
The 7-pc. Super Deluxe band is currently the largest, stand-alone band we are offering, which includes both lead male and female vocalists, a full rhythm section (drums, bass, keys, and guitar), and a 2-pc. horn section (saxophone and lead trumpet)!
The addition of a dedicated lead trumpeter allows your party’s music to sound more like the original recordings you grew up listening to; all those classic Motown, oldies, R&B, funk, and classic rock tunes will be enhanced, from Chairmen of the Board and Steely Dan to Earth Wind & Fire and Michael Jackson, to Justin Timberlake and OutKast!
Super Deluxe With Strings
If you are looking for traditional classical music for your upcoming event, we can arrange for you to hire a refined string duo or trio, produced by Andrew Mille and Classical Charleston.
The duo is Andrew himself on cello along with violin, and the trio adds a violist to the duo instrumentation.
If you want a taste of the refined and the funky at your next party, ask Wilton about Super Deluxe With Strings where he joins forces with Andrew’s string trio to form a 10-pc. party orchestra with horns and strings.
For these high-class events, you will enjoy three stages of live music by trained professionals: 1) Classical Charleston will play one hour as a trio (great for wedding ceremony), 2) followed by one hour of music by both the string trio and the 7-pc. party band (great for cocktail hour or dinner), 3) followed by two more hours of high-energy dancing to Super Deluxe live music show!
Custom Band Option
Wilton is always open to putting together a completely new band arrangement for your special event.
The above band packages are currently being offered based on our nine years of offering various band configurations to our wedding and corporate clients.
However, we can easily tweak our band make-up if you have specific ideas about how you want your Super Deluxe party band to appear.
Over the years, Super Deluxe has occasionally appeared with eclectic instrumentation like the addition of background vocalists, various wind instruments (trombone and EWI), and an all-vinyl, old-school DJ!
Custom DJ & Emcee Service
In addition to the over 350 songs on the Super Deluxe live band song list, the group also has 1000’s more songs and some of the hippest, most popular and extensive DJ playlists anywhere in the South!
Wilton can be available to custom design your event’s sound track from an easy-going start to a grand-finale finish!
Need a pro DJ with quality gear that can provide all your favorite songs along with announcements all evening long?
Put your event’s music in the hands of a trained professional and let Wilton and Super Deluxe provide the sound system, the lights, the songs, and the personality that your party deserves!
And Much Much More!
