Hiring our band
What musicians will we get?
Our range of musicians and the instruments they play are as follows: Vocalist (singer), Guitar, Accordion, Trumpet, Violin, Percussion, and Guitarron (traditional Mexican acoustic bass). We will always put a suitable combination of musicians together. As standard we offer a trio, quartet or quintet band.
Will I be able to choose specific instruments?
We will always put a nice combination of instruments together regardless of the size of the band you choose. However, if you’ve always wanted a trio with a trumpet player then we will be more than happy to accommodate your request.
How long does the band play for?
Our general set times are 1 set of 1 hour or two sets of 45 minutes. We are also able to customise our set times around your event requirements.
How long does it take for the band to set up?
We always arrive at the venue an hour before hand. This of course will give the band time to get changed and prepare themselves for the event. We generally ask for a room for our band to get changed and leave their belongings.
Can I request a song?
If there is sufficient time between the date of your booking and your event, we can certainly accommodate your request for a song. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss your song request.
Making a booking
How do I secure a booking?
Once we have finalised all details, we will put together an invoice with all the correct information and payment details. Booking will only then be confirmed once we have received a deposit.
How do I make payment?
We ask for a deposit to be made through bank transfer with the remaining balance payable two weeks before your event or paid on the day of the event in advance of the band's first performance. The deposit can vary depending on the overall price. Please note we do not accept cheque as method of payment.
Is travel included?
We add a supplement charge of 50p/per mile if the event takes place outside the M25. For events inside of London we charge congestion charge (if applicable) and parking costs (if applicable).
Does the act have a Tech Rider?
For bigger events such as festivals and private parties that have hired in a sound system, we can offer a technical rider that will give the sound team all the information needed to work more efficiently with the band.
Does the band require a stage?
We are an acoustic band that can perform with or without a stage. So if you wish you can have our band walk around at your event or wedding drinks reception playing to your guests.
Do I need a sound system?
We highly recommend a sound system if you are looking for a more upbeat louder party with the intention of dancing all night. Also, a bigger venue and a high number of guests may also require a sound system. We also offer a sound system with a professional sound engineer at an extra cost. If you wish to enquire we would be more than happy to help you out.
