“Fantastic band, great group of guys, created a wonderful & fun atmosphere.”Charlotte Tasquiern - Wedding, Priston Mill, Bath
“We were delighted with The Vinyls. It was just the right sort of music pitched at the different age groups and ensured that people were dancing.

Thank you so much.”Ariane Bayat - Wedding, The Secret Garden Restaurant, Ashford

“Emma Holmes from Tailored Entertainment was excellent; even after I accidentally suggested we didn't want the band whilst I was under the influence of anaesthetic, I soon realised the mistake I had made and Emma was great in sorting that mistake out and booking the band for us.
The band were amazing; perfect mix of music styles and it was exactly what we were hoping for. They listened to our likes and dislikes, and the music suited the variety of ages at the wedding.
We have already recommened the band to a few people we know who are planning their own weddings!
Thanks for the amazing entertainment!”Jenny Gallagher - Wedding, Stokes Farm Barn
“The Vinyls were fun, energetic and very helpful, even helping rearrange my dress for the photographer. We had a lot of fun dancing at our wedding and would really like to thank them.”Rachel Chandler - Wedding, Ashdown Park Hotel
“Thanks to everyone at Tailored Entertainments for helping us with this booking. This was a difficult event to book for us and was very unusual in regards to our normal booking and execution of an event. Tailored Entertainments we're very accomodating and patient with us throughout and that really helped us with getting the event sorted at the last minute. From my observations the band went down very well and played out to a packed nightclub who seemed to really enjoy the band. We'll keep Tailored Entertainments in mind for any future events we have, Thanks again.”Paul Gallagher - Christmas Event - Imperial College Union, London
“The band were absolutely amazing!
I have to admit that before the wedding day I was nervous that there wouldn't be enough people on the dance floor and half way though the night, when the band were playing, I was worried that there were too many people on the dance floor!
All of our guests have said multiple times how brilliant the band were and we completely agree.”Shauna Hope - Wedding, Huntsmill Farm
“5/5 The Vinyls were absolutely fantastic ! they created a fun atmosphere and played good music that had everyone dancing.”Barry & Emma Lawson - Wedding, The Parish of Allsaints, Denmead
“5/5 - Very professional, outrageously entertaining and fantastically talented. I want to see them again”Nick Mascall - Wedding, Hill Lands Farm, Chichester
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 lounge-style 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?
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.
