Do you need a stage for the band?

We do not need a lot of room or space to set up.  We have played in the smallest of venues, which tends to give people the opportunity to be more connective and intimate with the band.  When the venue comes with a stage, we will happily use it.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much experience do you have?

Rudy and Saddle Up have been professionally performing and entertaining live since 2007.  With 7 years experience, we strive and know what it takes to entertain for the best of events.  We've entertained all over Eastern and Southern Ontario at weddings, corporate events, truck shows, rib-fests, New Years Eve events, family reunions, street events, birthday parties, private parties and arenas.  Over the years we understand the crowd is always different so we play a very wide range of music to please everybody in the audience.  Music is not best heard at maximum volume so we know when to turn it down or turn it up.

When do you set up?

We set all of our equipment up way in advance, this way there is little to no disruption of your guests, organizers and catering.  Once upon all the details of the event, rest assured you will be able to contact us the day of the event.  All we need is 1 to 2 hours to set all of our equipment up.

How long do you perform for?

We can accommodate to whatever your event is proposing.  Depending on the duration of the event, generally, we perform for 4 hours and take 2 half-hour breaks.  We are extremely moldable/flexible though to adjust our set times for you and the event.
