Need A Helping Hand Finding Your Perfect Christmas Party Band?

If you’re not quite sure where to start with finding the perfect live music act for your Christmas party, then we’re here to help. Here’s answers to some of our most frequently asked questions...

How much does it cost to hire a Christmas party band?

For professional bands for Christmas parties, we recommend a base-level starting price of around £1000. At this price, you’re ensuring that your party band is made up of the UK’s very best professional musicians with the requisite skillset, equipment, and production to perform at any events venue in the country. Keep in mind that this is a starting price, and lots of bands you’ll like are going to cost more than this.

What does the Christmas party band fee include?

As standard, a Tailored Entertainment Christmas party band booking includes...

  • Two hours of live music split into sets to suit you.
  • Christmas / festive content in the set list.
  • Professional sound and lighting production.
  • A pre-mixed DJ service for in between band sets.
  • PAT Testing and PLI Insurance (required by all UK wedding venues).

You also get our 5-star Tailored Entertainment customer service. From your first enquiry right through to the big day itself, you’ll have a dedicated booking agent on hand to answer any questions or arrange any last-minute changes. This kind of peace of mind can make all the difference in the lead-up to your big event!

Lots of our bands also offer ‘optional extras’ for an additional fee. These include services such as afternoon drinks reception add-ons, roaming acoustic sets, ‘band as DJ’ sets, early load-in and late finishes. You’ll find all these options listed in the band’s profile.

Will my band play Christmas songs?

Absolutely! When you start your search, you’ll see that many of our bands have a specific list of Christmas party tunes that they’d be more than happy to pack the set with! Every one of our party bands also offers to learn one special request, so you can add in your favourite if it’s not on the band’s repertoire.

Will my Christmas party band travel outside of their location?

Yes! Our Christmas party bands regularly travel to perform at functions right across the UK and abroad. If your event is taking place more than two hours (one-way) from a band’s ‘location’, they will ask for an additional fee to cover travel and accommodation costs.

We’re planning a Christmas party at our house/private residence. Is it still okay to book a professional Christmas party band?

Yes! Our party bands are more than happy to play at houses and private residences. If you’re Christmas party is taking place outdoors or in a marquee, you just need to make sure that there is adequate electrical power for the band to use. For more information on this, you can chat to our booking team.

How do I make a booking for a Christmas party band?

First off, you need to find a Christmas party band that you love. If you want to go ahead and book that band, you can make an enquiry through the band’s profile – you’ll be asked to provide your contact details, and then one of our booking team will get in touch with you to chat through the details. If you’d prefer, you can just give us a call on 0800 564 2240 to get the ball rolling!

Are there any extra costs I need to think about when hiring a Chrismas party band?

The price you see listed on the band’s profile is our guide price. This is the average amount that it will cost to book the band. However, there are a few things that might affect the final cost of booking your Christmas party entertainment. For example, travel distance – the band’s guide price is based on them travelling anywhere within two hours (one-way) of their ‘location’. If your event is further away than this, there will be a travel and accommodation budget added to the booking.

There are a few other things that might increase the cost of booking your party music. If you would like the band to arrive early/stay late then this will incur an extra fee, and if you decide to book any of the band’s ‘optional extras’, these will also incur an extra charge.

For more information on this, give our team a call on 0800 564 2240. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Can someone help me pick the right Christmas party band?

If you’re struggling to find the right live Christmas party entertainment for you, we’d be more than happy to help! It’s helpful to think about the kind of music you like to listen to, or the kind of music that gets you and your friends and family dancing at a party, and choose an act that fits with that style. If you’re still not sure, give our expert team a call and we can suggest a few acts you might like based on your preferences, location, and budget.

What different styles of Christmas party band can I book?

Our Christmas party bands cover all the most popular styles in contemporary function entertainment. We have festival-style function bands, soul & Motown showbands for big, glitzy events, Gatsby-style bands for vintage parties and indie-rock covers bands that guarantee a packed dancefloor. For those looking for something a bit different from their Christmas covers band, we’ve got incredible dance anthem bands, retro 90s college rock acts, brilliant RnB bands and much more besides!

If you don’t know where to start, its useful to think about the kind of music you love and find a band that fits. You can use our search function to fine-tune your choices a bit!

How early should I book my Christmas party band?

The timing has to be right for you, but we’d recommend booking your Christmas party band as early as possible. We represent some of the most in-demand function bands in the country, and peak festive dates will often book up around a year in advance. To ensure you get the band you really want, we’d suggest booking as soon as you have your venue sorted.

My Christmas party venue has a noise limiter. Can I still book one of your bands?

The short answer is yes, you absolutely can book a great band if your Christmas party venue has a noise limiter. Most of our professional party bands are able to perform within the restrictions of a sound limiter and your experience will be the same as at a venue without one. We have a few bands - mainly the club anthems style, whose music may not be suitable depending on the individual venue restrictions. Please contact us to chat further if your venue has a sound limiter as we'll likely have experience of working at your chosen venue. You can read all about what sound limiters are and how they might affect your party entertainment in our Tailored Guide on party venues with sound limiters.
