How much space does the band need as a performance area?
For the 5-piece band, a flat surface area of 5m x 3m should be sufficient. With additional brass section 5m x 4m would be advised.
Do you have PLI and PAT tested equipment?
Yes, we have full Public Liability Insurance to the value of £5,000,000 and all our equipment is regularly PAT tested.
How long does it take the band to set-up?
Unloading of equipment, setting-up and sound checking takes around 45 mins – 1 hour. Packing down at the end of the night and re-loading takes around 30 mins.
Where are you based and how far will you travel?
We are based in Leeds, but are willing to travel anywhere. Just ask!
Will you play our first dance live?
With regard to a special song for your first dance, it can be absolutely anything. We have performed all sorts of different requests as first dances so don’t be afraid to suggest something completely out-there. We know how important the first dance is to every newly married couple and take great pride and pleasure in performing it live, but it is entirely up to you. For some couples, their connection with a song is with a particular version which they prefer to have played as a track instead.
Can we choose our own songs?
The band will usually tailor each individual set list on the day based on the particular venue, age range of your guests and any of your personal preferences. However, if you would prefer to select some of your own, you can find our full repertoire on our About us page which is regularly updated with our latest favourites.
Who will I be dealing with when booking?
All of our bookings are handled via LastMinuteMusicians.com – a dedicated agent will take your booking and guide you through the whole process.
So, how do we go about confirming a booking with you?
Once you are happy with the package we have tailored for you, we will draw up a contract and confirm your booking.
Please note that peak periods can be extremely popular, so to avoid any disappointment we advise confirming as early as possible to secure your date of choice.
Are there any hidden extras?
All our quotes are fully inclusive of all travel expenses etc. so there are no surprise hidden charges. The only one thing we do ask as a polite request is to please provide refreshments for the band, due to the long hours and hard work put into providing the best service we can.
