“WOW, Capitale were incredible! Everything was done so professionally, I was not expecting so much to be set up before we sat down to eat but it meant that it was all seamless and so slick! Everyone commented on how good they were and I don't think the dancefloor was empty once. We had an incredible day and were so lucky with all our suppliers but the band were just the icing on the cake and no one wanted them to stop. I will be highly recommending them to any of our friends who get married in future. They were also such great & lovely people who put up with me going round and hugging them all at the end - sorry! But I think this makes a real difference as there was no sense of them just being there to do a job, they were all invested in the day.
Thank you also for all Phoebe's help in the booking process, and Erin in the management, I couldn't fault or ask for anything better from start to finish.
Now I just need another event to organise so I can do it all again!”Bethan - Wedding, Haarlem Mill, Wirksworth
“They were really fantastic! Everyone said how good they were. Really made the night fun.”Thomas Hale - Wedding, The Garden Musuem, London
“Thank you so much for your excellent performance at our wedding on the 27th July. All the songs were great and the dance floor remained full. The singers were amazing and it was fun when they came out into the crowd. Izaak was great as the sound engineer and helping us set up the first dance music as well as the silent disco.”Amy Gasson & Juan Garcia - Wedding, Langley House, Surrey
“Capitale were amazing and also so flexible with their set times - changing the plan at the last minute because of the hot weather. We loved them and had loads of comments about how brilliant they were.”Emma Barrow - Wedding, Millbridge Court, Surrey
“Many thanks to all of the band for another great performance!You were all a pleasure to work with and provided a seamless process from booking to the event.I'm just sorry it was such a trek over to the boardrooms in between your performances!”Leanne - Corporate, The Belfry Hotel & Resort, Sutton Coldfield
“The band were absolutely fantastic, getting everyone up on the dance floor!”Henry - Wedding, Caswell House, Oxford
“The band were absolutely fabulous. You may remember that I had booked them last year for our Annual Ball and they had done such a great job that we wanted them again this year. They did not disappoint! Another really great night of entertainment and music from them. The whole room were dancing and they joined in on the dance floor. They are all so nice and pleasant to deal with. This year again, everyone was so complimentary about the band - even the few who did not dance enjoyed just listening. 12 out of 10!!!!!”Florence - Charity Event, Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton
“5/5 They were extremely professional, engaged very well with the audience and our wedding party guests loved them. We especially enjoyed the brass instrument musicians coming into the crowd and dancing with the guests!! Would highly recommend them again and in fact a couple of our guests have already asked for their details.”Julie & Peter - Seventon House Hotel, Abingdon
“We would just like to say that we had a fabulous evening and that was due to the band Capitale. They was all lovely people we had a great time.”Caroline Phillips - Private Party
“I’ve just sent a similar email to Sam the musical director. I wanted to say how good the band were, people were commenting on how good they were all night. They helped to make our wedding the best day ever, the dance floor was full all night and it was the best way to finish the day.
The people who have we have been in contact with at Tailored Entertainment the whole way through from when we booked to on the day have been brilliant and we had no worries.
That band exceeded all our expectations and we are gutted it’s over!”Dom and Charlotte - Wedding, Private Residence, Essex
“Capitale were brilliant as the evening band on our wedding day - they were very chilled and flexible that we were running over time. Created a perfect fun vibe on the dance floor, which as a result was never empty! Really talented band, we received a lot of compliments on them. So pleased we booked them and would highly recommend!”Kate & Martin - Wedding, Surrey
“What can we say?! You and all the band members are not only awesome musicians but were just a pleasure to have at our home. The music made our party and we all had a brilliant night. I cannot THANK YOU enough.....no words describe the memories you created for my family and I. I wish you and all the band members all the best with your future careers.”Alice - Birthday Party, Private Residence, Hampshire
“Been a bit of a whirlwind the past week. Just wanted to send a massive thank you for last week. Our wedding day was all we could’ve wished for and more. Everyone loved the band who were great fun and kept the dance floor going. We loved every minute. Would highly recommend them to anyone.”Daniel Djemal - Wedding, Northbrook Park
“The band was absolutely FABULOUS! They had the dance floor busy until the very end and had a few encores. My husband who is very sceptical and always a good test said to me, this is the best band I have ever seen at one of these events. So please pass on my thanks to them for contributing to such a good night. I did not get a chance to actually talk to them and say thank you. Also, the sound engineer was absolutely lovely and very very helpful. Do not forget him.”Florence - Corporate, Southampton
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? 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.
What is your guide price based on? Our guide price is based on our 6-piece line-up option performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in London (there are additional costs for venues located within congestion charge zone). 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.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception? Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute acoustic duo set (female vocals & guitar) 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. Our production is of a very high standard and we also have a professional sound engineer with us. If you are booking for an event where full AV is already in place, we can reduce the price to allow for our engineer not travelling with us.
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 is 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.
