“We booked the band for a January evening at Three Wise Monkeys in Ipswich. They managed to turn a bleak mid January Saturday into a party! They had everyone singing and dancing with their unique take on classics and unexpected pop tunes. They were very professional and a joy to work with from beginning to end. Thanks guys!”Kerry McLaughlin, Three Wise Monkeys Ipswich
“I just got back from my Honeymoon... These guys played at my wedding at Crows Hall, Debenham and they absolutely smashed it!!! if anyone out there is looking for a band for their wedding and comes across these guys book them! they had every single one of my 120 guests up and dancing. Nice varied playlists, very friendly band easy to communicate with and genuinely just nice guys. Was a pleasure having them play at my big day! See you again soon guys! Thank you once again”Sammy Measom - Wedding, Debenham
“Chart attack are a fabulous talented enthusiastic band. A lovely change to the normal rock bands I book. Assorted music from soul & R& B To current charts. The whole pub have been up on their feet dancing and singing along at every venue. Eye candy is An added bonus booking for the ladies ( I have been told)”Leyla Edwards, Jilted Promotions.
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 the biggest classic and current chart hits, 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? 60-90 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 acoustic duo set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner. You can see a video sample of this set here.
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 4-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Ipswich. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins 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? Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.
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.
“Cannot recommend this band enough!! Seen them twice... they stole the show both times. Absolutely nailed it on the night!! Can't speak highly enough of Tailored Ents. Thoroughly professional!”Gary - Birthday Party, Essex
