Need a little help hiring Hampshire cover bands?

If you’re not quite sure where to start with finding the perfect live entertainment for your big bash, 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 cover band in Hampshire?

For professional cover bands in Hampshire we recommend a base-level starting price of around £1000. At this price, you’re ensuring that your cover band is made up of the UK’s very best professional musicians with the requisite skill set, 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.

My favourite cover band isn't local, will they travel to Hampshire?

Yes - our cover bands regularly travel to perform at parties right across the UK and abroad. Travel costs will be added if your Hampshire event location is not local to the act, and if your venue is around two hours or more in travel time, an additional fee to cover Travelodge-style accommodation will be accounted for in your quote.

We’re planning an event at our Hampshire house/private residence. Is it still okay to book a professional cover band?

Yes! Our Hampshire cover bands are more than happy to play at houses and private residences. If your event is taking place outdoors, 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 Hampshire cover band?

First off, take a look through our Hampshire cover band 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 cover band!

Can I pick the songs my Hampshire cover band plays?

On every Hampshire cover band’s profile, you’ll find their specific repertoire of music they cover. We suggest that you take their repertoire into consideration when booking your covers band, 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 Hampshire cover bands also offer to learn one special request (a song not listed on their repertoire) as standard with your booking.

Do I need to hire a DJ to work alongside my Hampshire cover band?

No, all of the Hampshire cover bands on the Tailored Entertainment roster provide a full entertainment package with a bespoke DJ service before and after live sets - so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.

Can someone help me pick the right Hampshire cover band?

If you’re struggling to find the right Hampshire covers band 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 and budget.

Do Hampshire cover bands have Public Liability Insurance and PAT Testing certificates?

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

What different styles of cover band can I hire in Hampshire?

Our Hampshire cover bands cover all the most popular styles in contemporary function entertainment. We have folk-style function bands for festival parties, soul & Motown showbands for big, glitzy events, Gatsby-style bands for vintage parties and indie-rock covers bands that guarantee a packed dance floor. For those looking for something a bit different from their cover 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!

My Hampshire venue has a noise limiter. Can I still book my cover band?

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

Hampshire cover bands can be hired from a professional live music agency, such as Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment exclusively represents a host of the best Hampshire cover bands and on this website you'll find videos, photos, repertoire and links to band websites so you can find all the information you need to hire the perfect live music for you.
