Need a little help hiring Vintage Function Bands?

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...

Where can I hire Vintage Function Bands?

Vintage Function Bands can be hired from a live music agency, such as Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment exclusively represents a host of the best Vintage 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 Vintage Function Bands with Tailored Entertainment your booking will be secured by a booking contract between you and the act. Standard payment terms are a deposit to secure the booking (usually around 20% of the total fee) with the balance payable 7 days in advance of the event.

How much does it cost to hire Vintage Function Bands?

For professional Vintage Function Bands, a base-level starting price is around £1000. At this price, you’re ensuring that your Vintage band is made up of the UK’s very best professional musicians with the requisite skill set, equipment, and production to perform at any function venue in the country. Keep in mind that this is a starting price, and many of the best Vintage Function Bands are going to cost more than this.

How long do Vintage Function Bands play for?

Most Vintage Function Bands will perform 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets as standard. The Tailored Entertainment roster of live bands all provide a bespoke DJ service before and after live sets, so your whole evening of entertainment is covered.

How long do Vintage Function Bands take to set up and sound check?

Most Vintage Function Bands take up to 90 minutes to be fully set up and sound checked. Small line-ups may be a bit quicker whereas large showbands with a lot of production will take longer. Our expert team will ensure a viable plan is in place ahead of your event so you have nothing to worry about on the day.

Can Vintage Function Bands perform a set at my drinks reception?

Absolutely! Most Vintage Function Bands on the Tailored Entertainment roster offer afternoon drinks reception add-ons to their standard booking. You’ll find these listed under ‘optional extras’ on the band’s profile.
Alternatively, you could book one of our dedicated drinks reception entertainment options like a stunning soloist or string quartet.

Do Vintage Function Bands perform a special request or first dance?

Yes, all of our Vintage Function Bands are happy to perform a special request - which is often the first dance or song of the evening. We'll prompt you for this information well in advance of your event to give the act plenty of time to plan and rehearse the performance.

Do Vintage Function Bands provide all their own equipment?

Yes, all of our Vintage Function Bands come fully self-contained with premium audio and lighting equipment. Our Vintage Function Bands also provide a DJ service as standard so everything for your event is taken care of in just one booking.
