The complete band consists of six members on the following instruments: vocals, guitar, piano, drums, saxophone and bass guitar, or conga and percussion. We play live – therefore the more instruments are on stage, the fuller and more colourful is the sound. We do not use pre-recorded tracks, midi or mp3 files – we play all sounds that are needed, live.
Our basic band form is a cost-efficient solution, as it can fulfil all musical requests. It consists of four members: a female singer, a guitarist, a pianist and a drummer. If guests need to be entertained with dance music, I usually recommend this setting, with a group of four.
On request, the band can be expanded with a full wind instrument - and/or string section.
In case of background lounge jazz, we are ready to perform with a smaller number of musicians, in duo or trio form. In case of special requests (salon music, operetta), we can also include a violinist and a clarinet player.
We have a very wide repertoire, which allows us to practically fulfil any kind of musical task.
We automatically provide professional sound equipment when the band is ordered.
In case of galas or special events, a set of dancers (from ballroom dances to modern genres) and a magician can also be included. Among our references you may find this year’s 23rd New Year’s Eve ball at the Gundel Restaurant, Budapest.
Organizers: Zsolt Esze, Jenő Esze and Tamás Esze.
From 2011 until 2004, I performed daily at the Cotton Club, Budapest. It was here where I met my friends who would later join me in my band Special Request. My concept was to create a wholly universal band with professional musicians, where we can solve any kind of musical task at the highest quality possible, and to fulfil any kind of musical demand. We succeeded, as we have played at numerous high-quality events and a great number of high-standard concerts – and continue to do so to this very day. Apart from playing shows in Hungary, we regularly perform in Austria – where we performed at New Year’s Eve balls for five years –, and in Germany as well. We went on tour in California twice, we played in San Francisco, and gave concerts at the Hungarian House in Los Angeles, along with playing a New Year’s Eve ball as well. Apart from performing, it was a great experience to visit Hollywood, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Malibu, and the Grand Canyon, along with further national parks.
Master of ceremony
To create an atmospheric event, high-quality music needs to be accompanied by professional visuals. Our basic light equipment pack includes eight pieces of led lamp combinations, with are static, change colours and intensity. This is a great cost-efficient solution to create the right environment.
We can also provide a full light bridge, with dynamic, moving robotic lamps, a fog machine or a full room lighting.
For requests, please find the contact information under the “Contact” menu point.
Master of Ceremony
A Master of Ceremony is usually recommended for weddings. We often find ourselves in a situation where an amateur, unprofessional person finds himself/herself in such a role. With unnecessary, unfitting speeches and behaviour, dancing is usually interrupted and the constructed atmosphere is ruined. This can be completely avoided if the party leader is the member of the band. Our singer is the perfect and professional choice to conduct the events of the afternoon and the evening. She can create a fantastic atmosphere and will not disintegrate the event with unnecessary actions.
A uniquely choreographed opening dance is the perfect way to launch a wedding party. Our dance instructor teaches dances from beginner to professional level, based on the request of the newlywed couple. You can choose from a variety of styles, from traditional ballroom dances to hip-hop, and any combinations. Each choreography is created based on your choice of music, or a montage of songs. We compile and play the music on the spot. If requested, the band can play the songs live (if the given setting of the band is suitable for the music’s purposes.)
An elegant, perhaps funny, smart opening dance can be a worthy start to a great party and it establishes a fantastic atmosphere.
