The first dance was special and a moment we will never forget.I am slightly gutted I didn’t get chance to introduce myself but we were so caught up with our wedding day, so please pass on our thanks to the band!”James & Beth Potter - Wedding, Manchester Hall
“Kick Out were excellent. They were tremendously courteous, considerate and did all that could have been asked of them, and more. They took the stress out of occasion and were really the instrumental in a great night. They went above and beyond by learning to play our first dance song despite it not being on their set-list - we did not know this until the moment they started playing. We could not recommend them enough, they really helped create and maintain an amazing atmosphere. Thanks to them and everyone who helped in the organisation.”David Rees - Wedding, Isle of Man
“Kickout went above and beyond our expectations. They absolutely made the wedding reception. As the weather was so warm they suggested starting a bit later so our guests could enjoy the sunshine. We wanted a really cool and relaxed feel and that’s exactly what Kickout gave us. Everyone has commented since saying the band were ace. We had an absolutely amazing wedding day and evening and Kickout helped us achieve that.”Liz & Graeme - Wedding, Stables Country Club, Bury
“The band were amazing and really made our day. We have had so many compliments about how good they were and some of our friends that are planning their own weddings have been asking us for details which is a big compliment! They were really flexible when our timings were a bit behind and I just wish we could do the entire thing again! Myself and Ben have just been discussing when we can arrange a party which they could play at in the future so we may be in touch! Thank you so much for all your help they made my day!”Sarah & Ben - Wedding, The Old Grammar School, Manchester

We can't fault the band in any way, shape or form. Can't thank you enough for supplying our wedding with the best entertainment! Please pass on our gratitude to the band.”Mr & Mrs Gallacher - Wedding, Auchen Castle
“I would just like to say how fantastic the band were at our wedding, everyone commented and a fair few people have asked for the contact details. The lads were so lovely and really genuinely loving what they were doing, they had everyone up on the dance floor all night. I would recommend them to everyone and they really are a credit to the wedding industry, you never know what to expect when you book a band online and never hear them face to face but I can't believe how fantastic they were!”Katie Pickard - Wedding, Allerton Castle, Mauleverer
“The band were amazing on the day everybody really enjoyed them. The first dance song was absolutely perfect and their repertoire was varied and enjoyed by all guests. Everybody was commenting on how good they thought the band were.”Kaylea Simon - Wedding, Curdlands Barn
“Well my feet have just about touched the ground after our wedding last week and I wanted to send you and email to say just how much me, Pete and literally everyone at the wedding enjoyed Kickout. Not only were they highly professional and had arrived, set up, sound checked in good time - they even managed to get us to cut the cake on time, which considering how tipsy and excitable we were by 8pm was no mean feet - but the sound they produced, oh man the sound! They were literally one of the best bands I have ever heard live and I spent half of the first set thinking ‘are these guys really our wedding band??’ Right from the first dance they were exceptional. Having asked three guitarists and a drummer to play a song - Walk of Life - where the original has a big organ/synth sound, I wasn’t sure how it would work, but oh my, they absolutely nailed it! I feel bad saying it was better than the original, but it really was that brilliant! You could hear this ripple of murmuring move across the dance floor as people realised how good they were. ‘God, the band are good aren’t they?’ ‘Wow have you heard the band?’ ‘Where did you find them?’ They managed to keep the momentum going right through both of their sets and the dance floor was packed throughout with all ages. I definitely at one point saw both my 13 month old nephew and 78 year old Auntie having a good boogie! We were really impressed with the quality of their musicianship. Daniel’s vocals and guitar playing were something else (I could see my brother having ‘guitar envy’ as he looked on wistfully!) Individually with Andrew on the drums and then base and electric guitar, whenever they took solos there was lots of whooping and cheering at the skill and sound, but then together they gelled so well and produced a lovely rich, warm sound which had us all dancing away. We can’t thank them enough for making our wedding reception so much fun. We hope that they enjoyed themselves and we’d like to apologise for the slightly over enthusiastic dancing that saw some of our guests getting a bit too close to their speakers at one point… I’ve attached a pic of them and I don’t know whether it’s of any use to you, but one of our friends filmed the first dance on his phone. If you excuse our ‘dancing’ at the start, it shows everyone filling the dance floor and just how good the guys sounded. (I’ll send it to you on google drive as the file is too big to email) Thanks so much again for everything. Amy and Tailored Entertainment have been so helpful throughout and we couldn’t be happier with the service.”Hannah - Wedding, The Gathering, Derbyshire
“We hired the band "Kickout" for the evening session at Gary and Kendals Wedding in Stone; 15th April. The guys arrived in good time and set up quickly and were all very polite. They performed 3 great sets throughout the evening . Great mix of songs to suit all and well executed. Loads of good comments from the guests. We would not hesitate to recommend them. Big Thanks”Tim Clay - Wedding, Aston Marina, Staffordshire
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 live loujnge-style acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.
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 Liverpool. 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?
Will you perform our first dance?
Yes, as long as we have two 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 is 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.
