“After an extensive google search, I found and booked The Thatchers for a housewarming / 40th birthday party and I was absolutely delighted I did!! They were absolutely brilliant. Not only that, they were friendly, adaptable and just generally willing to please! Their presence created a fantastic atmosphere for our party and our guests absolutely loved them too! Would not hesitate to recommend them and even book them again for a future party!”Laura Pym - 40th Birthday Party
“5/5 The Thatchers Band were unbelievable from start to finish, their videos on the website do not do them justice. Not only did they keep everyone on the dance floor the whole evening but they were so accommodating! They put up with our rowdy family and friends who all got extremely merry, the bride and groom especially so!!! Please send them our thanks for what was truly the best night ever. (And a sorry for our drunkenness!!) Such a lovely group of people to have create the best night for everyone.”Catherine Carmichael - Wedding, Greenwood Manor Hampshire
“The band were extremely well received by all the wedding guests. Everyone who attended said how impressed by the band they were, especially the lead vocalist. Overall the whole experience with the band has been extremely positive, and I won't hesitate in recommending them at every opportunity!”Dougie Haskins - Wedding, Harmans Cross Village Hall, Swanage
“We just wanted to say a big thank you very much to you and the Thatchers for providing such fantastic music at our wedding. All of the band members were super friendly and relaxed and played a great couple of sets which really suited the vibe of our day, the dance floor was always full and they played all our favourite songs! Would certainly recommend them!”Jo Fletcher - Wedding, Falconhurst, Kent
“The Thatchers played at our wedding last week and they were fantastic. We have had so many comments since about how good the band were and where did we find them etc. The songs that were played got everyone up on the dance floor and it was full all night! We chatted to the band briefly and they were very friendly. The staff/owner of the venue (Brookfield Barn) commented to us the morning after how lovely the band were, which is not his typical experience from other bands. Overall we are thrilled that we chose The Thatchers to be our wedding band and would recommend them. Thank you!”Lizzy and Neill - Wedding, Brookfield Barn, Horsham
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 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 lounge-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 Guildford. 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.
