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...
For professional party bands in New Forest 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.
Yes - our party bands regularly travel to perform at parties right across the UK and abroad. Travel costs will be added if your New Forest party 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.
Yes! Our New Forest party bands are more than happy to play at houses and private residences. If your party 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.
First off, take a look through our New Forest 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 your perfect party band!
On every New Forest party band’s profile, you’ll find their specific repertoire of party band music. We suggest that you take their repertoire into consideration when booking your party 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 New Forest party bands also offer to learn one special request (a song not listed on their repertoire) as standard with your booking.
No, all of the New Forest party 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.
If you’re struggling to find the right New Forest party band for you, we’d be more than happy to help!

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.
In many New Forest party 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 party 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.
Our New Forest party 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 party 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!
The short answer is yes, you absolutely can book a great band if your venue has a noise limiter. Most of our professional New Forest party 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.
