We are familiar with most rooms in Ottawa and can advise regarding sound considerations. Knowing the number of people will assist us in judging if acoustic or utilizing a small or medium size sound system is advisable. We provide our own sound system. The more details you give us the better we can anticipate how to serve you best. Let us know if you want the group to be mobile or stationary, background music or stage show, dance or dinner music, or a combination of these throughout the evening.
