The Ultimatum Experience - Your Song!

A brand new original song written with you, for any occasion.

Have you even wondered what it’s like to have a song written about YOU? Now’s your chance to find out! Whether it’s your first dance, or just a song to celebrate the occasion, Ultimatum creator Ben Scott will guide you through the process right up until performance day.

We’ll begin with a 10 minute telephone consultation, for Ben to get to know you and understand what you’d like your song to be about. Don’t worry - you can do as much or as little work on the lyrics as you wish, all you need to do is tell Ben a little about yourself, and he’ll  take care of the rest.

You will then receive a first draft of the song two weeks later, after which you can guide Ben if you would like anything changing. Your final version will arrive shortly after, and we’re ready to blow your guests away with your own bespoke song!

FAQ

I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that?

Do you take requests?

I will happily perform one special request for you.

How long do you take to set-up?

I need at least 120 minutes from start to finish. This includes loading all equipment into the space, setting up and sound check. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, myself and my sound engineer 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, with the standard set option being 45 minutes.

How long do you play for?
Currently the standard set is 45 minutes, but we also have 20 minute, 60 minute and 90 minute options to suit any need. In the evening I can 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. There are no gaps whilst I switch from the live set to the DJ set - the transition is seamless, so no one leaves the dance floor!

Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Yes – all included in the price. The PA provided with Ultimatum is a state-of-the-art 'L Acoustics’ PA system, and the lighting system is synchronised with the music! L Acoustics are as good as it gets for PA systems, ensuring your guests are hearing the highest possible quality of live music achievable (it’ll keep the audiophiles happy!). You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.

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.

What is the website guide price based on?

The published guide price is based on performing at a venue within 30 miles of my base in London. I charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hour drive home, I charge a bit extra so I can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please get in touch with your event date and venue details.

Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?

Yes, I regularly work at venues with noise limiters and have a carefully designed show catered towards exactly this need. This makes use of fully electric drums (just as cool as real drums!), and no acoustic sound whatsoever comes from the stage area - all sound for the comes comes out of the PA system and is fully controllable. I'm happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure I have all the required information 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 1 month notice, I will learn the first dance of your choice, free of charge.

How much space do you require?

I 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 my system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?

The standard rider is for a hot meal and soft drinks or a £15 rider buyout.

Can we see you play live before booking?
