Book Professional - the evening reception on your wedding day is going to create memories that last a lifetime. Make sure they're of the most incredible party by booking a top professional band who will have the ability, experience and equipment to deliver an unforgettable finale to your big day. Our musicians deliver a live show that is entirely focused on giving you and your guests the most amazing experience.
With Tailored you'll also benefit from a dedicated booking manager, so communication is prompt, informative and all recorded in our super-detailed booking system. We love being organised!
Book For You - we can promise that every band on this page will pack the dance floor at your wedding. Choose the band that performs your favourite music in a style that you love and we guarantee they'll put on a show that will have your dance floor packed from start to finish. All Tailored exclusive acts have proven they can get guests of all ages onto the dance floor and having a great time!
Book Added Value - ensure your band can deliver a full evening entertainment package, including DJ sets as well as all required equipment, so you don't have to worry about hiring anything else in. Most of our acts also offer drinks reception sets - live music during the day can really add something special and using musicians from your evening band will provide excellent value for money.
Book Securely - make sure you have a contract with your act. We'll protect your booking with a professional booking contract and our 100% money back guarantee. We'll only take bands on to the Tailored roster if they are reliable, have rehearsed like-for-like 'deps' to call on if required and have the required PAT and Public Liability Insurance Certificates required to work professionally. We get a lot of short notice enquiries from clients who have 'been let down' by their band - this causes unnecessary stress and will reduce the options available to you if booking at very short notice. We're always here to help and have a 24/7 customer service line.
Be Decisive - if you find a band you love, don't risk missing out - get your date booked in. We're already booking into 2022 and expect 2021 to be one of the busiest years for weddings we've experienced. Another benefit if you can book early is you're likely to secure the band at the current year's rate.
If you would like to chat further about hiring your alternative wedding band, please call our expert team on 0800 564 2240, we'll be delighted to hear from you and very happy to help.
