Soundcheck

  • It is highly recommended that the band are able to perform a soundcheck before their performance for at least 30 mins to make sure that the sound is as you expect it to be. This is normally done during the band set-up after the engineer setup. Please make sure this is ok with the venue if earlier set-up's are involved, so please make sure with them if this is the case.

Staging

  • A stage for the band would be nice but is not necessary for the 5-7 piece bands, the bigger bands 8-10 piece would be better suited to a stage as there is much more equipment and floor space needed to accommodate the size of the band, all venue dependant. The area required MUST be a level and safe area to work on.

  • 2 x 1 hr sets or 3 x 40 mins are inclusive, Sets of 30 mins are available to add at request, please contact for prices.

Food/Drinks Requirements

  • A HOT meal for EVERY member of the band/sound engineer. FREE mineral water, soft drinks, tea/coffee for the duration of the bands stay on premises. This would be much appreciated as most of the time members of the band run 15-18 hour days, leaving in the early afternoon, sometimes the morning, and arriving back at home until the early hours of the next morning.

Venue Noise Limiters/Restrictions

  • Venues around the UK may use limiters to maintain their entertainment license. Generally this is not a problem for the band to play within these limits and are used to doing so. Either way we ask if you could please let us know in advance if there is a limiter at the venue or not as we can better prepare for the event.

Ideal Performance Area

  • A stage would be nice, but is not necessary unless the client hires any bands 8-10 piece. Needs to be a safe, level and hard floored (carpeted is acceptable) working area. This also applies in any outdoor areas, marquees etc.

          5 Piece Main Band - (D)3m x (W)5m

          2 Piece - (D)1.5m x (W)4m

          3 Piece - (D2m x (W)4.5m

          6/7 Piece - (D)3m x (W)6m

          These are the preferred playing dimensions but can be smaller according to band size.

Band Dress Code

  • Smart/Casual 

Other Band Requirements

  • A clean, heated room would be appreciated, big and secure enough for the band to keep personals, change clothing, eat and relax in when not performing.

Travel

  • The band are fully self sufficient for travel within the Mainland Great Britain, but any transport costs such as ferries and/or planes are at cost to the client. International, Non-Mainland Great Britain, Parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Isle of Wight and Isle of Man may require hire of equipment and travel by boat/ferry and/or plane. Please contact if you think this may be the case.

          There are extra costs for fuel if the venue where the band will playing is more than 90 miles radius from London, please contact us if you think this may be the case.

Cancelation Fees

  • 50% of fee due if cancelation is within 90 and 61 days prior to the event.

          75% of fee due if cancelation is within 60 days and 31 days prior the event.

          100% of fee due if cancelation is within 30 days of the event.

The cancelation fees are applied because all members of the band are professional full-time working musicians and have blocked this date off in their work diary and no longer look for and accept work on that date. Members of the band turn down well paid work on the confirmation of the booking and it is therefore only fair that they are compensated for any loss of earning because of a cancellation.
