“Oh my goodness we CANNOT say enough good words about them! All of our guests are still raving about how fantastic they were! Calling them the greatest wedding band of all time would be doing them a disservice. These guys bring the party like nobody else.

If you’re not quite sure where to start with finding the perfect live music or entertainment for your event, then we’re here to help. Here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions...
Alternative Wedding Bands can be hired from a live music agency, such as Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment exclusively represents a host of the best Alternative Wedding Bands and on this website you'll find videos, photos, repertoire and links to band websites so you can find all the information you need to hire the perfect live music for you. When hiring Alternative Wedding Bands with Tailored Entertainment your booking will be secured by a booking contract between you and the act. Standard payment terms are a deposit to secure the booking (usually around 20% of the total fee) with the balance payable 7 days in advance of the event.
For professional Alternative Wedding Bands, a base-level starting price is around £1000. At this price, you’re ensuring that your band is made up of the UK’s very best professional musicians with the requisite skill set, equipment, and production to perform at any function venue in the country. Keep in mind that this is a starting price, and many of the best Alternative Wedding Bands are going to cost more than this.
