Questions or Concerns

Having decided that we’re the band for you, we assure you know that your entertainment is in good hands. We contact you around 3 weeks before the big day to finalise the booking details such as the timings, chopices of songs and any other questions you have. You’ll have a dedicated event coordinator from our agency Alive Network to talk to with throughout the hiring process, who will be more than happy to liaise with you on any problems or general questions or concerns.

 

At Your Wedding

 

After the soundcheck

Once we’ve set up, sound checked and put the background music on through our PA system, we shall go to change into our stage clothes. You will need to arrange for the venue to provide us with a changing room that is NOT the toilets and that is secure. Please inform the catering team to provide us with a hot meal and soft drinks/tea/coffee. This is standard for all wedding bookings for any band in the UK. If we can't eat before the first set (EG: the event is behind schedule and we need to perform right away) - then we'll eat during our first break.


1st live set

Once we've played our first live set of 40 or 60 minutes , we'll take a half-time break (approx 45 minutes) and for weddings, this is the ideal time to serve the buffet or refill your drinks! Whilst we are away from our instruments we will leave background music on our PA system or, if you upgrade, have a member of the band man the music to take requests and make announcements.


First Dance

If the timings slip out on the day, don't fear as we will liaise with you and/or the event manager at the venue to confirm the timing of your first dance. We will be ready to perform or DJ your chosen track no matter what happens!


2nd live set & end of the night

After our second and final live performance, if we have finished before midnight, we will provide background or DJ music until midnight (unless you've upgraded for a later finish). Only after our official contracted finish time will we pack our equipment down. We aim to do this as quickly and discretely as possible and usually takes us about one hour.

 

We understand how important the evening entertainment is in capping off an already perfect day. We are proud of the level of service we have provided to countless satisfied clients but don’t just take our word for it, check out our recent testimonials below.
