“We couldn’t have been happier with the band, they were absolutely brilliant and we’ve had so many comments from guests about how good they were. They turned up on time, were fine with having to wait around a while before setting up as we were cutting the cake, had no set up issues whatsoever and were friendly and courteous throughout. And on top of that and most importantly, the sets they did were class and the dance floor was literally packed with all ages for the whole time, which is just what we were after. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and genuinely could not recommend them highly enough.

Many thanks to you and Tailored Entertainment as well for ensuring the booking process was great – it was just the sort of low-hassle engagement we needed in the run up to the event.”

“Alive's act was fantastic and played a big part in what was a memorable day.

They were very accommodating as to set timings and seemed to adapt easily to the space constraints placed on them in the pub venue. They appeared unfazed by an impromptu performance by a Welsh male voice choir that happened to be performing up the road earlier in the evening!

I was very impressed with the sound levels; somehow they seemed to be plenty loud enough in the dance area and at the same time people sitting a few metres away were able to talk to each other!

Everybody I've spoken to since the night have said how much they enjoyed the band's performance. The set list was perfect for the occasion and the dance floor was filled!

The interaction with everyone at Tailored Entertainment was also very easy and professional and made for an easy booking experience.

All in all, a very enjoyable and professional performance.”

“Just a quick email before we pop on our honeymoon to say thank you.

You guys were awesome. Absolutely brilliant.
You helped make or amazing day a truly epic day. Bang on our kinda thing.

Very close friends of ours lost their daughter exactly a year ago to the date of wedding. It was probably the first time they had been out celebrating since her death and they were on the dance floor carving up some moves. It was really nice to see.

The music was great; birthday song for Laura incredible. I couldn’t stop laughing.

I think I made a complete tit out of myself, but it had a great time. That’s what is all about.

Thank you so much.”

“Honestly we could not have been more impressed with the band - really friendly, professional and fun. They had to compete with great weather keeping everyone outside for the first part of their performance, but they really were spot on. Through the night they kept up the energy and made the night really memorable.

The venue had an automatic sound cut-off if the volume was exceeded the limit for too long, just to prove how good they were they managed to blow it up at the end of their encore song - what a sendoff - what a performance!”

The process for the DJ in between the bands sets was really easy and they really helped to set the mood for our wedding reception.

“In short. The guys were amazing. We had a ball, An absolute awesome time with them. Our friends and family would regularly grab us between sets and excitedly go into drunken detail about just how great the band were, how brilliant the songs were and so we were pretty chuffed with ourselves. ???? me especially as I chose them. We had so many compliments and I think the biggest compliment was, that even the most reluctant dancers couldn't help but bound around like crazy people as they were enjoying the music and the atmosphere so much! The guys couldn't have been more lovely and adaptable and even helped when we had an unexpected power cut during a set. They interacted with the crowd brilliantly and chatted with us between sets. Our wedding planner was also a fan and couldn't be more complimentary!!! All our friends wanted to book them for future events (not even planned yet) and when we have our tenth anniversary they will be first on our itinary to rebook ???? It was so nice, after a fairly stressful process, to just let off some steam and dance and enjoy ourselves and immerse ourselves in the atmosphere with our friends and family. And it was a pleasure to occasionally take a minute and watch everyone interracting with each other and dancing away with no inhibitions. Thank you so so much. Both me and kyle agreed it was one of our favourite parts of our day! We would recommend them wholeheartedly for any big event.

We are one very happy bride and Groom. ?”

We wanted a cool band that represented the style and vibe of our wedding and these guys were absolutely perfect. They looked good, sounded amazing and the authentic 'real' band sound. Everyone loved them and all of our guests were up on the dance floor within 10 seconds of them starting to play. I will absolutely keep them in mind for future events and recommend them to friends.”

I was told by the venue that they'd had loads of bands play there before and they'd had no problems, which can't be right.

You were brilliant from start to finish. You set up on time without disturbing anything, played our first dance exactly how we had requested and kept everyone on the dancefloor all night. Our younger friends and older relatives alike commented on how much fun they had dancing and how good the band was. We cannot thank you enough. All the best.”

“We wanted to say a giant thank you to Alive. I was wary of booking a band based only on a video but they were even better live. Seems like wedding bands have changed - these lads were so cool our guests thought we'd hired them on some kind of exclusive deal. Their sound and energy made the atmosphere electric and everyone was dancing all night! They were stuck in traffic for hours but were in a good mood all night and they learnt our (little known) first dance tune , including audience participation, based on a you tube video. Seemed like a big ask, but they did it anyway and it sounded great. For anyone looking I would say whatever your budget, the music is make or break so scrimp on the shoes, ditch the favours, do DIY everything, whatever it takes...but book the band! Hand on heart our wedding would not have been the same without them. Please pass on our feedback and sincere thanks for their trek down to Devon and making our night.”

“Hi Phoebe, I just wanted to share some positive feedback and say that Alive were absolutely brilliant performing at our wedding. They judged the mood perfectly with their choice of songs and had amazing energy on stage. A number of our friends said that they were also the best wedding band they had ever seen! They played our first song to perfection too, we couldn't have asked for any more. Please thank them from us. All the best.”

I didn't leave the dance floor all night and no one wanted them to stop playing. Finding a band was, for us, one of the hardest jobs but we couldn't be happier with our choice and so many people have commented on how brilliant they were.

“A massive ‘Thank You’ to Alive for an amazing display at our wedding at Ingleside House in September 2014. We were so glad we found you guys and after listening to over 100 bands it was good to find one where the lead signer could actually sing!! The speeches ran over and you waited patiently and then listening to you play Moondance with my wife’s brother singing made both our days and we really appreciated your flexibility. The dance floor was full all evening and everyone commented on how awesome you guys were. On a school report I would give you 10 out of 10 for your floorless performance. I honestly think that you guys have a massive future and my advice is to keep doing what you do. I can’t recommend you enough and I will certainly book you for the next function we have. Very best of luck for the future and thanks again for making our wedding day so special.”

Thanks as well for lending my brother your guitar and then drumming as a background whilst on break. What a lovely thing to do we are so grateful! My brother said it’s so rare to find guys that both sing and drum! The music was just to our taste we were so happy and danced the night away. My wedding was perfect and you guys helped make it that way and I’m now looking for excuses to hire you again! Can’t express how happy and impressed we are !!

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?

Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner. Click here for a video of our live lounge set add-on.

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. 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 us performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Brighton. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 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 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 are 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 £25 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.

“We couldn’t have been happier with the band, they were absolutely brilliant and we’ve had so many comments from guests about how good they were. They turned up on time, were fine with having to wait around a while before setting up as we were cutting the cake, had no set up issues whatsoever and were friendly and courteous throughout. And on top of that and most importantly, the sets they did were class and the dance floor was literally packed with all ages for the whole time, which is just what we were after. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and genuinely could not recommend them highly enough.

Many thanks to you and Tailored Entertainment as well for ensuring the booking process was great – it was just the sort of low-hassle engagement we needed in the run up to the event.”

“Alive's act was fantastic and played a big part in what was a memorable day.

They were very accommodating as to set timings and seemed to adapt easily to the space constraints placed on them in the pub venue. They appeared unfazed by an impromptu performance by a Welsh male voice choir that happened to be performing up the road earlier in the evening!

I was very impressed with the sound levels; somehow they seemed to be plenty loud enough in the dance area and at the same time people sitting a few metres away were able to talk to each other!

Everybody I've spoken to since the night have said how much they enjoyed the band's performance. The set list was perfect for the occasion and the dance floor was filled!

The interaction with everyone at Tailored Entertainment was also very easy and professional and made for an easy booking experience.

All in all, a very enjoyable and professional performance.”

“Just a quick email before we pop on our honeymoon to say thank you.

You guys were awesome. Absolutely brilliant.
You helped make or amazing day a truly epic day. Bang on our kinda thing.

Very close friends of ours lost their daughter exactly a year ago to the date of wedding. It was probably the first time they had been out celebrating since her death and they were on the dance floor carving up some moves. It was really nice to see.

The music was great; birthday song for Laura incredible. I couldn’t stop laughing.

I think I made a complete tit out of myself, but it had a great time. That’s what is all about.

Thank you so much.”

They had to compete with great weather keeping everyone outside for the first part of their performance, but they really were spot on. Through the night they kept up the energy and made the night really memorable.

The venue had an automatic sound cut-off if the volume was exceeded the limit for too long, just to prove how good they were they managed to blow it up at the end of their encore song - what a sendoff - what a performance!”

“In short. The guys were amazing. We had a ball, An absolute awesome time with them. Our friends and family would regularly grab us between sets and excitedly go into drunken detail about just how great the band were, how brilliant the songs were and so we were pretty chuffed with ourselves. ???? me especially as I chose them. We had so many compliments and I think the biggest compliment was, that even the most reluctant dancers couldn't help but bound around like crazy people as they were enjoying the music and the atmosphere so much! The guys couldn't have been more lovely and adaptable and even helped when we had an unexpected power cut during a set. They interacted with the crowd brilliantly and chatted with us between sets. Our wedding planner was also a fan and couldn't be more complimentary!!! All our friends wanted to book them for future events (not even planned yet) and when we have our tenth anniversary they will be first on our itinary to rebook ???? It was so nice, after a fairly stressful process, to just let off some steam and dance and enjoy ourselves and immerse ourselves in the atmosphere with our friends and family. And it was a pleasure to occasionally take a minute and watch everyone interracting with each other and dancing away with no inhibitions. Thank you so so much. Both me and kyle agreed it was one of our favourite parts of our day! We would recommend them wholeheartedly for any big event.

We are one very happy bride and Groom. ?”

“We wanted to say a giant thank you to Alive. I was wary of booking a band based only on a video but they were even better live. Seems like wedding bands have changed - these lads were so cool our guests thought we'd hired them on some kind of exclusive deal. Their sound and energy made the atmosphere electric and everyone was dancing all night! They were stuck in traffic for hours but were in a good mood all night and they learnt our (little known) first dance tune , including audience participation, based on a you tube video. Seemed like a big ask, but they did it anyway and it sounded great. For anyone looking I would say whatever your budget, the music is make or break so scrimp on the shoes, ditch the favours, do DIY everything, whatever it takes...but book the band! Hand on heart our wedding would not have been the same without them. Please pass on our feedback and sincere thanks for their trek down to Devon and making our night.”

“I just wanted to say what a fantastic band Alive were when they performed at my 50th birthday party on Saturday night. You never know whether a band will live up to their hype but the guys did an amazing job and sounded every bit as good as we had hoped for. They had everyone on the dancefloor from when they started to the very end and all my guests thought they were excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who wants a great evening!”

“I didn’t get to thank the guys properly Saturday so wanted to send a huge thank you to them (and you for organising)! It was absolutely perfect and everyone had such a good time! I’ve had so many great comments about how good they were, where did we find them, where are they from!! Massive success, thank you! Their relaxed attitude was also much appreciated and fitted into our style, we really went with the flow from start to finish! I’m still waiting to have a bridezilla moment! Maybe for the next one!!! Massive thank you for Below My Feet too, it was perfect!!! Amazing weekend all round and thank you for your contribution to it!!”

“The news is all good! We’ve had nothing but fantastic comments from our guests, and the compliments are still coming in ‘where did you get them from – they were fantastic’ etc. Everyone I spoke to thought they played to the highest calibre, huge repertoire and the whole evening absolutely brilliant! I found Nick to be extremely professional and pleasant – and certainly very flexible to our needs. He was able to deal with some last minute changes very efficiently. It’s so important to get the music right at an event like this, and in choose Alive we certainly did – I’d have no problem recommending them to others.”

“A massive ‘Thank You’ to Alive for an amazing display at our wedding at Ingleside House in September 2014. We were so glad we found you guys and after listening to over 100 bands it was good to find one where the lead signer could actually sing!! The speeches ran over and you waited patiently and then listening to you play Moondance with my wife’s brother singing made both our days and we really appreciated your flexibility. The dance floor was full all evening and everyone commented on how awesome you guys were. On a school report I would give you 10 out of 10 for your floorless performance. I honestly think that you guys have a massive future and my advice is to keep doing what you do. I can’t recommend you enough and I will certainly book you for the next function we have. Very best of luck for the future and thanks again for making our wedding day so special.”

“Oh my just wanted to thank you guys for your amazing performance on Saturday, we absolutely LOVED you and you made our first song sound better than the original. You even brought tears to some eyes! Such a fun bunch and so talented. We are so glad we found you guys. We loved how you got stuck in and had fun at our wedding too, it made us so happy to see you having a great time. Thanks as well for lending my brother your guitar and then drumming as a background whilst on break. What a lovely thing to do we are so grateful! My brother said it’s so rare to find guys that both sing and drum! The music was just to our taste we were so happy and danced the night away. My wedding was perfect and you guys helped make it that way and I’m now looking for excuses to hire you again! Can’t express how happy and impressed we are !! Thanks to everyone behind the scenes for being wonderful and accommodating of our songs. I want to hold on to these memories forever!”

“Alive were fantastic. They played our wedding in a field in August this year. They judged the crowd perfectly and had the dancefloor rocking all night. What was truly great about them was that they seem to really enjoy the gig too getting people up on stage to perform with them was a highlight. All the guests are still raving about how good they were. They sound great, have a fantastic stage presence and play an excellent set for discerning music lovers.”

Thanks also for playing extra songs after the set had concluded – it went down really well as you saw from the enthusiastic reaction of our friends. On a personal note, thanks for letting me gatecrash the stage and sing with you. It was another magical moment in what was a truly awesome day! We’ll certainly be recommending you to our families and friends. All the very best and hope to see you at some stage in the future. Cheers”

“Exactly the kind of music, sound and band we were looking for. They are extremely cool and totally rocked the venue. We went from a relatively empty dance floor to a “mosh pit” within a few songs. One of the female attendees texted us after the event to ask where on earth we got such a “cool, hip and totally fit” band esp the drummer apparently. So yep would recommend hiring them anyday of the week.”

“Alive played our wedding on Saturday night and were absolutely brilliant! They totally rocked. Everyone was dancing, young and old, until the bitter end and everyone commented on how good they were. My friends, husband and I are pretty hard-core music fans and we like to think we know what we’re talking about when it comes to music and these guys were stunning! They thoroughly surpassed our expectations and made for an unforgettable night. Great songlist, loads of energy and really nice lads too. Booking, correspondence and organisation was seamless. They were happy to arrange for the sound engineer to set up a bit early so we could play our own playlist first which was very helpful too. Thanks so much guys. You finished off our day with a party that we’ll never forget. Hope you enjoyed yourselves too! Love Bex & Rob. x”

“Well, what can I say. Alive were absolutely AMAZING! From the moment the sound tech Iain arrived to the moment they all left they were nothing but polite, professional and extremely helpful. Even though the weather was rubbish and everyone was inside the venue, the band seem to set up as if by magic, very discreet. I sometimes think it takes a while to get people up on the dancefloor but this certainly was not the case on Saturday. As soon as they started playing the dancefloor was packed. My feet are still hurting! We have had so many comments regarding how good the band were and one of our guests wants to book them for her son’s wedding next year. So, if we had to sum them up in one word…..AWESOME!!! Many thanks”

The band themselves were amazing, excellent musicians and it was a really great selection of songs. They kept the dancefloor packed all night long (even my grandmother was dancing!). Thanks again to the guys for letting other musicians use their equipment to play a song and that solo in Sweet Child of Mine was sick! All the best to you and the guys!”

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?

Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner. Click here for a video of our live lounge set add-on.

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. 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 us performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Brighton. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 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 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 are 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 £25 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.
