Hi there,

Back again, and just today was hired to do a semi formal which I have nave not done for a long time. Other than theme, is there something else I should be thinking about? I would appreciate any advise. Thanks, Nancy from Coastal Music Services

Find out the agenda and if they want you to MC formalities or do they have someone for that? Find out if they have a % of slow songs to fast they want played.

Also, confirm your music library is legit and current and that your programming will conform to the expected standards of the client.

nancy, I think that semi formal probably means in terms of dance maybe something along Proms for high school, but maybe a little more slow dance thrown in. I'm thinking Emcee duty and light it up after dinner. Do you have a theme provided to you as yet?

In my parts, I rock them hard just like any other school dance. Ours have absolutely NO formalities of any kind, they just call it semi-formal so the students don't dress like crap.

Back in the day ...... the difference was at a FORMAL you wore a tux and she wore a full length gown; at a SEMI-FORMAL you'd wear a suit & tie or sport coat & tie and she'd wear a knee length cocktail dress. Over the years the dress codes have been down graded but my guess is they don't want them wearing jeans and T-shirts. As for the music ..... that shouldn't change; ROCK 'EM HARD and KEEP 'EM DANCING!

I do formals and semi-formals for college events. Its basically like all other dances but everyone is more dressed up and we provide a larger sound and light show....
