What makes Request Station different?
We're an all request live music experience! You choose a song off of our list, text it to us, and we play it for you!
Where do you usually play?
Everywhere! Request Station works very well as entertainment for corporate functions. People also tend to enjoy Request Station at restaurants, nightclubs, bars, and similiar public venues.
Why should we hire you?
We play exactly what your crowd asks for! They literally choose the songs. Request Station is also comprised of professional musicians, who have years of experience, and is self contained, with a pa and LED light system. Volume control, the perfect songlist, and people staying to hear the song they want!
What if no one requests anything?
If no one texts any requests in, the band will play some of the more popular songs until a request comes though. To be honest, though, people enjoy being a part of the fun, and this is hardly ever a concern!
My venue requires a liability insurance policy?
We work with a number of providers to ensure we carry a liability policy to match your venue's requirements.
Okay, so who are the musicians in Request Station?
Request Station is comprised of many accomplished musicians, but most often features Jason Swain on lead vocals and bass, Cory Spivey on vocals and guitar, Joseph Peace on vocals and drums, and Casey Copeland on vocals and keys.
Aren't live bands too loud for some events?
Absolutely not! Volume control is a key point to what we do. We realize that not every stage is a stadium, and sometimes the band isn't meant to be exceedingly loud. For that reason, we play with an electronic drum kit, no bass amp onstage, and a very low volume guitar amp at most events.
This all sounds great! I'm going to text 20 songs...
The more the merrier! We will always pick the most popular ones to do first, however, and try to make sure everyone who wants to gets a chance to pick a song or two.
Do you play songs in the order you get them?
To some extent! We try to prioritize anyone who hasn't requested a song yet that night, so that everyone can get at least one request in. We also prioritize any song that gets multiple requests all at once.. and we try to break things up so that it's not all one genre, not all slow songs, etc... depending on the needs of the venue and audience.
What if we need a smaller band or acoustic duo?
Request Station started as an acoustic duo! We are able to do acoustic duo shows, acoustic trio shows, and trio full band shows upon request!
I have a question you didn't mention here.

“ We can't thank you enough! Jason and Joseph were so easy to deal with, and you kept people dancing all night! Our friends still talk about the awesome band that you text songs to.. you've made fans for life!”
“ THANK YOU! You made my special day that much better! We wanted a wedding that would be a party, and that's what we got! Request Station is AWESOME!! ”
“ We've rarely worked with bands as professional as you guys. Not only were you punctual, you were willing to work with us when catastrophe struck, and still pulled off a successful event. All of the feedback has been nothing but excellent. Can't wait to work with you again next year.”
“ The students loved it, and are still talking about it weeks later! They loved that a band could play as many songs as you have, and they loved being able to text in requests.”
“ Request Station is a great band that knows a jaw dropping amount of songs. Fun people, and an absolute pleasure to work with. ”
“ Please don't be offended by this, but your band was the perfect compromise! Everyone wanted a different type of band, but the sheer amount of songs your band performs meant there was something for all of us. I wish we had found you earlier on in the search, it would have saved us a lot of time. Highly recommended!”
“ Request Station was so much fun. My friends and I love texting in songs, and we love every song they play!”
“ This band truly brought the crowd alive with their performance. I love the whole thing of letting the crowd pick the songs. One of the best groups you've ever sent me!”
“ It was just right for what we needed. Nothing but great feedback, and we'll DEFINITELY be working with you again soon!”
