Not sure where to start with hiring your perfect party band? Then we’re here to help. Here’s answers to some of our most frequently asked questions…
For professional bands for military events, 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 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.
As standard, a Tailored Entertainment booking for military events includes...
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.
Yes! Our bands regularly travel to perform at parties right across the UK and abroad. If your military function 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.
Absolutely! When you start your search, you’ll see that many of our bands for military events 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.
First off, take a look through our party 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 the perfect band for your military 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. However, there are a few things that might affect the final cost of booking your military party 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 party 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.
No, all of our bands can provide a pre-mixed DJ service before and after live sets. And if you'd like one of the band members to DJ live they can do this for a small additional fee. If you are keen on adding a separate DJ act to your booking please let our team know as we represent some of the most in-demand DJs in the UK, all of whom can work alongside live musicians such as sax and percussion.
If you’re struggling to find the right live band for your military event, 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.
