The lava game wedding experience
The Lava Game is more than just a wedding band. When you book TLG you are also getting a DJ/MC, a personal coordinating experience, and many other options such as a synchronized stage lighting show for a concert like atmosphere, uplighting for the room, acoustic music arrangements for ceremony/cocktail hour, and professional wedding photography packages.
A TLG wedding always comes with a DJ and a master of ceremonies. You can make all of your DJ music selections for your formalities including ceremony, first dances, cake cutting, etc. Our MC will guide your guests along through the evening with introductions and announcements while keeping your wedding on schedule.
If you'd rather have the band perform songs live for your ceremony or first dance we can happily offer that in a variety of musical arrangements.
Acoustic solo, duo, and trio act available for ceremony and cocktail hour.
If you've ever seen the band out at a show before, that's what you can expect at your wedding.. only better dressed! Top 40 sing alongs, positive energy, sweet dance moves, and a crazy light show ensuring a packed dance floor all night long.
Let's talk about lighting
What is synchronized stage lighting?
When the band performs, so do the lights. Every bit of a Lava Game show is produced to be a full audio and visual performance. The lights follow exactly along with the music, highlighting the ups and downs and rhythms of the songs. We use a wide variety of colorful washes and spinning and dancing moving head fixtures. Strobe lights that flicker to the drums and a video wall to display moving pictures. We encourage you to come out and see the show.
You can also add uplighting to your room to add a little more color and relaxed atmosphere.
What is uplighting?
Uplighting is putting color wash light fixtures on the floor around the perimeter of the room, shining up to the ceiling, arranged in a way to showcase the room and add more color and atmosphere to your reception. It's a great way to set the mood and your guests will be in awe.
Tell me more about this video wall
We have a 15' video wall that is displayed behind us on stage and it's probably the first thing anyone notices when you walk into the room. It's massive. It synchronizes to the show playing music videos and visuals to the songs.
The screen can also be used to showcase custom picture slideshows for guests of the wedding to view. Maybe childhood photos of the bride and groom or their engagement photos. Be creative!
What if my venue is too small or doesn't allow this?
We always verify room sizes, available power, and rules and permits with the venue before committing to anything. Our stage set up is flexible to a certain point and we can offer many alternative solutions to ensure the best set up with what we have to work with.
You offer photography?
You bet. Our bass player, Frank, is actually a full time wedding photographer. He is an elite photographer in Pittsburgh and it's always an added bonus when your vendors are on the same team, making communication and planning that much easier and smoother. If you want wedding photography done right, let Frank and his photo/video team document your day.
Engagement sessions, albums, and prints are all available options
