Two Piece Bands use lesser number of instruments compare to a full live band. This fits well into venues where a large space or budget is not available or if there are sound restrictions. The common combinations are a Guitarist and a Singer, Keyboard Player and a Singer or Two Guitars with Both Musicians Singing. Two piece bands perform live or use pre-recorded backings tracks or a drum machine to provide a full sound like a live band. The two piece acoustic acts playing completely live with no backing tracks are ideal for background music, cocktail receptions or dinner events. The two piece bands with backing tracks are suitable for parties where dancing is required.
