“Alex arrived early and it was a pleasure to meet him. He was flexible with his location and even moved when the rain came. Very friendly and all the guests commented on how good he was. A very accomplished musician with a fantastic voice. Highly recommended.”Matt & Sophie Gilbert - Wedding, Talton Lodge, Stratford Upon Avon
I am really keen to have some live music during my wedding ceremony - are you able to perform during the ceremony? Absolutely! I regularly perform during wedding ceremonies and drinks receptions. I like to arrive and set up in time for when your guests start to arrive, I can then welcome them with some live music and perform when required during your ceremony. I can then re-set and perform during your drinks reception if required. I can also perform during wedding breakfasts.
Do you take requests? I am happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually a song during the ceremony. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the day.
How long do you take to set-up? 30 minutes.
What time do you play? At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, to be performed as required over a 4 hour period.
What is your guide price based on? My guide price is based on me performing at a venue within 30 miles of my base in Chester. I charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, I charge a bit extra so I can book accommodation.
Do you have your own equipment? Yes – I travel self-contained with amplification.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that? Yes, my sound works fine with noise limiters.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment? Yes.
How much space do you require? I have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 1.5m x 3m.
How much power do you require? 1 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks? Soft drinks are always much appreciated & for longer days a meal would be great but this is not essential.
Can we see you play live before booking? As a professional function musician, my bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately I am unable to invite guests to. My audio is a very accurate insight into my sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out my testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience.
“Cannot recommend this band enough!! Seen them twice... they stole the show both times. Absolutely nailed it on the night!! Can't speak highly enough of Tailored Ents. Thoroughly professional!”Gary - Birthday Party, Essex
