“The band were professional and outstanding in every aspect both before during and after the event. There were a number of problems during the wedding breakfast at the venue which caused major delays for the band to set up (2 hours behind schedule) and then play the set, but the band were fully understanding of the situation and helped wherever they could to the point that the band set up their own speaker and mic for the speeches as the venue PA system and mic was broken and out of use. Without the band's help, speeches would have been very difficult for half the guests to hear and would have caused a major detrimental impact on the wedding day itself. When the band played the set they were immense to the point that guests wanted to know where I found the band assuming I had seen them live before. Although the majority of guests were in the 25-45 age range we had people of all ages from 2-70 on the dance floor at different times. The biggest compliment that I could pay the band is that not only would I personally vouch and recommend them to friends or family, they were that good I have no doubt that some guests who saw the band will look at booking them themselves or recommend to any friends or family who will be having weddings and other events in the future.”

“Fantastic, superb, brilliant, just three adjectives to sum up The Social. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! This was no doubt a smaller sized gig for them but they still put on two fab sets reflecting the vibe of the event with a strong mix of songs throughout. Liaison with the band was spot on and they tweaked their set to add a couple of song requests. Interaction with the crowd was great, even allowing for guest vocalist(s) from the crowd at the end to bring the show to an end. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending them, honestly you won't be disappointed. Everyone the next day commented how good the band was.”

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 40 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.

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 40 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 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.

“Fantastic, superb, brilliant, just three adjectives to sum up The Social. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! This was no doubt a smaller sized gig for them but they still put on two fab sets reflecting the vibe of the event with a strong mix of songs throughout. Liaison with the band was spot on and they tweaked their set to add a couple of song requests. Interaction with the crowd was great, even allowing for guest vocalist(s) from the crowd at the end to bring the show to an end. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending them, honestly you won't be disappointed. Everyone the next day commented how good the band was.”

The booking process was very easy and Ryan was very helpful and quick to reply to any questions I had, putting us as ease for the day.

“The Social are an excellent band and I am very happy we chose them. The acoustic set at the reception was perfect for the venue, guests and the weather, with most guests commenting how good it was. The evening music was excellent too. The songs worked well with the group and got everyone out on the dance floor. The Social were very easy to deal with and very attentive to every request we made. My wife and I couldn’t have been happier with the service they provided. Thank you!”

“The Social were amazing for our wedding night! Even though it wasn't a huge wedding party they still gave a full performance and read the room to tailor their sets for the vibe in the room. They were really easy to talk to before the wedding and up for changes to some songs on their set list which we asked to change.”

“We couldn't recommend The Social enough. A fantastic live band was a must for our wedding day, and The Social surpassed our high expectations. They were really easy to talk to ahead of the event and accommodating of our setlist choices, as well as putting on an amazing energy-filled performance on the day and giving us the most memorable finale to the party we could have hoped for! Thanks again for making all our wedding dreams come true.”

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 40 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.

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 40 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 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.
