“General consensus on the band is they were great, they had a lovely rapport with a very lively crowd and the floor was packed from start to finish. I absolutely loved the first dance, which was not what I was saying in the run up. I thought they sounded better live than on the recordings and were a major part in the day truly being the best of my life.”

“We booked the Folk Junkies for our tipi wedding back in June, well, what can I say that will possibly do justice for how fantastic they are! Not only are they sublime musicians they are also warm and kind people. They got everyone on the dance floor and kept them there. I would hire them over and over and over and over and over again!!! If their videos get you going you need to book them because they're even more incredible in real life! Nearly 2 months on from the wedding and we are still getting compliments and people talking about the band. The band spoke to some of the guests whilst they were on their intermission, and every single person they spoke with had nothing but compliments for genuine they are. They are just a super, cool, funky, fresh group of people! I cannot thank you guys enough for how you made my wedding incredible!”

Tailored Entertainment was excellent from start to finish. Their response time to my online enquiry was great and their customer service was impeccable. I would 100% recommend them to anyone one. Every email I received from the colleagues at TE was warming, welcoming and very helpful. I can't fault them.

The Band
Folk Junkies were an incredible band and everyone loved their music at our wedding. They got everyone up dancing with their brilliant covers.

“5/5 - Firstly can we say how amazing Folk Junkies were! Thank you for being part of our special day. You guys were exactly what we had hoped for and you delivered an absolutely fantastic set throughout the whole evening. The acoustic duo set during the wedding breakfast was brilliant with several guests commenting how beautiful the lead singers voice was. Then the after dinner music....awesome! From the off Folk junkies set the right tone and delivered a set that got literally everyone on the dance floor. Not at any time was the floor empty and the tunes just kept coming. We have since had countless guests saying how great the band were.

Secondly to Amy Roberts from Tailored Entertainment thank you so much for all you did in the lead up to the day. At times we were bombarding you with several emails a day and you always responded promptly. Thanks for putting up with all the last minute stressed emails and ensuring that the sets all went off without any glitches!!!”

Thank you so much for contributing to our special day.

“We had such an amazing day, the music/entertainment really made it special. 
All of our guests have commented on how great the band and DJ were and have asked us how we found them. The setup was really smooth, we didn't see or hear them setup which was perfect, as we have been to weddings before where you can hear them sound checking as you eat.Ben's acoustic set was spot on and he even played our exit song again so we could hear it, as we missed it while we were having pictures 
We just wanted to say a massive thank you to the band for yesterday. They were absolutely fantastic, we LOVED them!. The dance floor was full the whole evening and everyone was commenting on how good they were. They were amazing! Thanks for all your help and please do pass on our thanks to them, they were perfect and we are so grateful. ”

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 have three great options - a live lounge-style acoustic duo, a roaming 4-piece band (perfect for a vibrant drinks reception) and/or an instrumental violin set, which can work for drinks or during dinner.You can see more on these sets here and here.

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 our 4-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Guildford in off-peak season (October - April). 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.

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 £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.

Not only are they sublime musicians they are also warm and kind people. They got everyone on the dance floor and kept them there. I would hire them over and over and over and over and over again!!! If their videos get you going you need to book them because they're even more incredible in real life! Nearly 2 months on from the wedding and we are still getting compliments and people talking about the band. The band spoke to some of the guests whilst they were on their intermission, and every single person they spoke with had nothing but compliments for genuine they are. They are just a super, cool, funky, fresh group of people! I cannot thank you guys enough for how you made my wedding incredible!”

The Band
Folk Junkies were an incredible band and everyone loved their music at our wedding. They got everyone up dancing with their brilliant covers.

“5/5 - Firstly can we say how amazing Folk Junkies were! Thank you for being part of our special day. You guys were exactly what we had hoped for and you delivered an absolutely fantastic set throughout the whole evening. The acoustic duo set during the wedding breakfast was brilliant with several guests commenting how beautiful the lead singers voice was. Then the after dinner music....awesome! From the off Folk junkies set the right tone and delivered a set that got literally everyone on the dance floor. Not at any time was the floor empty and the tunes just kept coming. We have since had countless guests saying how great the band were.

Secondly to Amy Roberts from Tailored Entertainment thank you so much for all you did in the lead up to the day. At times we were bombarding you with several emails a day and you always responded promptly. Thanks for putting up with all the last minute stressed emails and ensuring that the sets all went off without any glitches!!!”

“Absolutely superb, accomdating of our overrunning wedding, judging the tone and style of the audience perfectly to ensure that the dancefloor was packed from first to last song. Our first dance request was beautiful, performed in the band's style but true to the original and with no idea that it was potentially the first performance of it.

Would like to have them back to an event in the future. Thanks so much for topping off our wedding day.”

“We booked the Folk Junkies for our wedding on a gorgeous summers day. We had one acoustic set outside as well as two evening electric sets inside our venue. Everyone absolutely loved the band. They were fantastic, well worth the money we paid. They were so professional yet laid back about facilitating our requests. They even let one of the kids play on the drums which thrilled both her and her parents! We can't thank you and recommend you enough!! You made our perfect day that bit more special ????”

“What can I say? Folk Junkies were awesome! I think every single guest (even James' 86 year old grandmother) was up dancing at some point of the night. We had so many compliments about the band. I loved their version of Shape of You, definitely did Ed Sheeran justice, please record and put it online with the other previews so I can hear it again. Thank you so much, Folk Junkies really were the cherry on top of an awesome day!

“We had such an amazing day, the music/entertainment really made it special. 
All of our guests have commented on how great the band and DJ were and have asked us how we found them. The setup was really smooth, we didn't see or hear them setup which was perfect, as we have been to weddings before where you can hear them sound checking as you eat.Ben's acoustic set was spot on and he even played our exit song again so we could hear it, as we missed it while we were having pictures 
We just wanted to say a massive thank you to the band for yesterday. They were absolutely fantastic, we LOVED them!. The dance floor was full the whole evening and everyone was commenting on how good they were. They were amazing! Thanks for all your help and please do pass on our thanks to them, they were perfect and we are so grateful. ”

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 have three great options - a live lounge-style acoustic duo, a roaming 4-piece band (perfect for a vibrant drinks reception) and/or an instrumental violin set, which can work for drinks or during dinner.You can see more on these sets here and here.

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 our 4-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Guildford in off-peak season (October - April). 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.

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 £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.
