Testimonials

★★★★★

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding last Friday. I think it is safe to say you definitely got the party started, it was so great to see everyone dancing and having a great time (including ourselves!) We had so many comments from our guests to say how brilliant you all were, so we are so grateful for helping make the evening reception so perfect. Wishing you every success in the future, I would recommend you to anyone and everyone!”Sarah & Adam - Wedding, Luxers Barn. Hambledon

★★★★★

“You guys were incredible! Thank you so much for playing at our wedding! The variation in songs you played gave everyone something to dance too. And I don't think the dance floor was empty at anyone point. Totally made it for us. I'd get married all over again just to have you play it!”Jessica Bates and James Croft - Weddding, Minstrel Court, Royston

★★★★★

“5/5 The band were absolutely fantastic! They created an incredible atmosphere and really made the wedding. We couldn't have asked for more”Hannah Matthews - Wedding, Private Address, Isle of Wight

★★★★★

“We recently booked Sound System for our wedding party and we could not have been happier. We already knew we loved their sound (and particularly Kirsty's voice) from their promo videos on their website but what we didn't know is how good the band would be a getting everyone on the dance floor. Whilst their songs were not my normal 'favourites' they were far better choices to get everyone involved. Everybody from my 5 year old niece to my 75 year old mother-in-law were up dancing and all our guests couldn't stop saying how great the music was. As normal, we ran a bit behind on the day but Kirsty and the guys were super relaxed in pushing back the set times for us. Thanks so much guys for making our party one to remember and helping us dance the night away. We'll definitely keep Sound System in mind for our future family parties!”Lauren Crowther - Anniversary Party, Dorset

★★★★★

★★★★★

“I'm really sorry I didn't get to say thank you last night for your incredible music! You guys were literally awesome and I can't tell you how many people just kept saying to me 'the band is INCREDIBLE!'. Also thank you for performing our first dance song specially for us - I know it wasn't part of your usual repertoire and it was completely beautiful! I hope you had a safe journey home. We will send some pics when they come through in a few weeks' time. Best wishes”Lydia - Wedding, Oxford

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 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?
Up to 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?
Although we do not provide any additional sets for drinks receptions, we highly recommend the soloists featured on the Tailored Entertainment website: https://www.tailored-entertainment.com/soloists-duos

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 Reading. 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 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.
