If you’re not quite sure where to start with finding the perfect live music or entertainment for your event, then we’re here to help. Here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions...
Retro Function Bands can be hired from a live music agency, such as Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment exclusively represents a host of the best Retro Function 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. When hiring Retro Function Bands with Tailored Entertainment your booking will be secured by a booking contract between you and the act.
