“I want to just say a big thank you to Ultimatum for making our product launch night so special. Everyone commented on how brilliant Ben was and stunned by his breath-taking one-man show – Ed Sheeran eat your heart out!”Rhiannon - Corporate Event, London
“I know from experience that it’s difficult to choose live entertainment for an important occasion, particularly one you don't get to see in person. But not only is Ultimatum superb in the promotional video but he sounded exactly the same (if not better!) in real life and so exciting to have such a unique presentation of one person doing…everything!!”Jon & Gilli - Birthday Party, Manor Barn, Chichester
“Words are not enough to express how wonderful Ultimatum was at our wedding reception last Saturday! Incredible multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, so friendly & professional and from the first dance (please thank Ben again for learning it!) to the last encore he had everyone up on the dance floor!”Gemma - Wedding, High Billinghurst Farm, Godalming
I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that? Absolutely! I have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will definitely remember for years to come! My repertoire features the biggest classic and current chart hits, so there's certainly something for everyone.
Do you take requests? We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.
How long do you take to set-up? 2 hours. As the videos show, it’s a very unique set up, which requires a little extra time to set up. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.
What time do you play? At a time to suit your event, standard set option will be 45 minutes from December 2018. I’ll be adding 90 minute set and 2 hour set options from January 2019.
How long do you play for? Currently the standard set is 45 minutes, and then from January 2019 there will be the option for 2 x 45 sets, along with 2 x 60 minute sets. In the evening I can also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.
Do you have your own PA and lighting? Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
What is the website guide price based on? The published guide price is based on performing at a venue within 30 miles of my base in London. I charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours drive home, I charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that? Yes, I regularly work at venues with noise limiters. The Tailored Entertainment booking team are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment? Yes.
Will you perform our first dance? Yes, as long as we have two-three weeks notice, I will learn the first dance of your choice, free of charge.
How much space do you require? I have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.
How much power do you require? 2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks? Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.
