Need A Little Help Finding Your Perfect Corporate Band?

Got any questions about hiring your corporate band? Here’s answers to some of our clients’ most frequently asked questions…

How much do live bands for corporate events cost?

For professional bands for corporate events, we recommend a base-level starting price of around £1000. At this price, you’re ensuring that your corporate 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 corporate band fee include?

As standard, a Tailored Entertainment corporate band booking includes...

  • Two hours of live music split into sets to suit you.
  • Professional sound and lighting production.
  • A pre-mixed disco playlist 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 corporate band travel outside of their location?

Yes! Our corporate bands regularly travel to perform at parties right across the UK and abroad. If your event is taking place outside of their local area travel costs will be added and if your venue is around two hours or more in travel time, an additional fee to cover Travelodge-style accommodation will also be accounted for in your quote.

I’m worried about booking my corporate band during coronavirus. What assurances can you offer?

First off, we totally get why you’re feeling a bit worried. We’ve dealt with hundreds of clients throughout 2020 who have been forced change their plans due to COVID-19. We want to make sure that you party music is one less thing for you to worry about. We’ve put in place a comprehensive range of options that will allow you to secure the band you love for your corporate event, even if you’re forced to alter plans at the last minute. Best thing to do is head to our super helpful Tailored Guide on booking your event during Coronavirus or even give us a call and chat to us directly.

What experience do your bands have in providing corporate entertainment?

Tailored Entertainment acts have performed at large-scale events for some of the most world’s most recognisable brands and businesses, at events right across the globe. Our acts have provided corporate entertainment for organisations like Google, Sega, Amazon, Sony, ITV and The FA and at some of the most prestigious venues in the country including The Dorchester Hotel, Soho Farmhouse and The Shard. You can rest assured that you’re booking the very best.

I’m looking for a corporate band to play our business Christmas party. Will my band play Christmas songs?

Absolutely! When you start your search, you’ll see that many of our corporate 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 bands for corporate events also offers to learn one special request, so you can add in your favourite if it’s not on the band’s repertoire.

How do I make a corporate band booking?

First off, take a look through our corporate roster and shortlist any bands that you are keen on. Once you've made your shortlist you can submit that to us – 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 options and how to progress. If you’d prefer, you can just give us a call on 0800 564 2240 to get the ball rolling with finding your perfect corporate party band!

Are there any extra costs I need to think about when hiring live music for a corporate event?

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 for a corporate event. However, there are a few things that might affect the final cost of booking your entertainment. For example, travel distance – the band’s guide price is based on them performing at local venues (usually within 30 miles of their base). If your venue is further away than this, there will be a travel fee added to your quote.

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 I pick the songs my corporate band performs?

On every corporate band’s profile, you’ll find their specific repertoire of party band music. We suggest that you take their repertoire into consideration when booking your corporate entertainment, and make sure that you like plenty of the songs on their list. When you book your act, we’ll ask you to go through this list and highlight your favourites, so the band can keep those in mind when putting the sets together for your big night. You can also use this time to identify any songs you wouldn’t like to hear, too.

All our professional party bands for corporate events also offer to learn one special request (a song not listed on their repertoire) as standard with your booking.

Can someone help me pick the right corporate band?

If you’re struggling to find the right live corporate 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 colleagues 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.

Do corporate bands & musicians provide insurance certificates such as Public Liability Insurance and PAT Testing certificates?

In many corporate venues Public Liability Insurance (PLI) and PAT Testing Certificates (documentation that ensures all electrical items are safe) are an essential requirement from bands for corporate events parties. Every one of our corporate acts carry up-to-date PLI and PAT Testing Certification in line with wedding venues guidelines, meaning when you book a Tailored Entertainment function act, you’ve nothing to worry about.

I’m planning a corporate event abroad. Can I still book a Tailored Entertainment party band?

Absolutely! Tailored Entertainment represents some of the UK’s very best international party bands for corporate events. Our acts regularly travel overseas to perform at parties and corporate events right across the world. Understandably, the way that international bookings are priced can be quite different to domestic gigs. You can read loads more about this in our Tailored Guide on booking overseas party bands, or you can call our expert bookings team for more information.

Our event is taking place in central London. Can I still book any of these corporate bands?

Our corporate bands are happy to perform at any venue in London and do so regularly! For bookings at venues that take place inside congestion charge or ULEZ zones, there will be an additional fee to cover these expenses. For bookings in central London we will also ask for a small parking fee to be added to the booking.

What different styles of corporate band can I book?

Our corporate bands cover all the most popular styles in contemporary function entertainment. We have festival-style function bands for rustic barn and tipi weddings, 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 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, it's 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!

Will my corporate band stay late/arrive early?

Yes! A band’s standard fee is based on seven hours onsite (5pm arrival, midnight finish). For an additional fee, all our corporate acts are willing to arrive earlier or stay a bit later to suit your event’s schedule.

How early should I book my corporate entertainment?

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

My venue has a noise limiter. Can I still book one of these corporate bands?

The short answer is yes, you absolutely can book a great band if your venue has a noise limiter. Most of our professional corporate 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.
