Testimonials

★★★★★

“I want to just say a big thank you to Tropic for making our big day so special. Everyone commented on how brilliant the band were and loved the different styles of music they played from the acoustic set outside in the afternoon to the full on party hits in the evening!”Emma - Corporate Brand Launch, Covent Garden, London

★★★★★

“I know from experience that it’s difficult to choose a band for an important occasion, particularly one you don't get to see in person. But not only are Tropic superb in the their videos but they sounded exactly the same (if not better!) in real life!”Jessica and Alex - Birthday Party, Tanner Warehouse, London

★★★★★

“Words are not enough to express how wonderful Tropic were at our wedding reception last Saturday! The band were amazing musicians, so friendly & professional and from the first dance (please thank them again for learning it!) to the last encore they had everyone up on the dance floor!”Abby and Stefan - Wedding, Sopley Mill, Dorset

★★★★★

“These guys are amazing! From the very beginning I knew we were in such safe hands! Jaz and his band were so accommodating and flexible delivering the type of music we wanted for the night and my god were they fantastic from start to finish! Music is such a key element to creating a perfect party atmosphere and these guys smashed it! Thank you so so much again..... now I'm thinking when can I have another party!”Valentina Cooper - Party

FAQ

I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that?
Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features modern day dance floor fillers to your favourite funk and pop anthems, so there's certainly something for everyone.

Do you take requests?
We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.

How long do you take to set-up?
60 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.

What time do you play?
At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.

How long do you play for?
We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.

Can you provide music for our drinks reception?
Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute full band acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.

What is the difference between the ‘pre-mixed DJ service’ that comes with the standard package and the 'band member to DJ live' which is an optional extra?
The pre-mixed DJ service is where the band put on a bespoke playlist (you can request up to 30 songs in advance for this) through the PA before and after their live sets. We do this at most events and it works great - the volume of the music would be the same as if you had a DJ.

If you upgrade to the live DJ service, you can still send over preferences in advance, but you will also have a band member selecting and mixing tracks live on the night, as well as taking requests. The DJ will be happy to make important announcements but they will not talk constantly over or between tracks (that's just not our style!). We also think it's important to say that the DJ won't have a separate DJ booth - they will set up in an appropriate space (ideally to the side of the stage) and the PA/lighting will be the same as what is being used by the band.

Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.

What is the website guide price based on?
The published guide price is based on our 3-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Greenwich. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hour drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.

Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?
Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Yes.

Will you perform our first dance?
Yes, as long as we have three weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.

How much space do you require?
We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.

How much power do you require?
2 x 13-amp sockets are fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?
The band's standard rider is for a hot meal and soft drinks for the band members or a £15 pp rider buyout.

Can we see you play live before booking?
As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
