Need a helping hand hiring your perfect North West band?

Got any burning questions about hiring your live band? Here’s answers to some that we get asked all the time…

How much should I pay for my North West band?

For professional bands for functions, we recommend a base-level starting price of around £1000. At this price, you’re ensuring that your North West band is made up of the very best professional musicians with the requisite skillset, equipment, and production to perform at any events venue. Keep in mind that this is a starting price, and lots of bands you’ll like are going to cost more than this.

What does the band fee include?

As standard, a Tailored Entertainment booking includes...

  • Two hours of live music split into sets to suit you.
  • Professional sound and lighting production.
  • A pre-mixed disco playlist for in between band sets.
  • PAT Testing and PLI Insurance (required by all UK wedding venues).

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 function 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.

Can I hire any of your live bands to perform in the North West?

Yes! Our function bands regularly travel to perform at events right across the UK and abroad. If your event is taking place more than two hours (one-way) from a band’s ‘location’, they will ask for an additional fee to cover travel and accommodation costs.

We’re planning a function at our house/private residence. Is it still okay to book a professional live band?

Yes! Our function bands are more than happy to play at houses and private residences. If your function 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.

Can I pick the songs the band will perform?

On every act's profile, you’ll find their specific repertoire of function band music. We suggest that you take their repertoire into consideration when booking your function 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 function bands also offer to learn one special request (a song not listed on their repertoire) as standard with your booking. You can use this as your first dance, or just choose a particular favourite song.

What different styles of band can I hire?

Our function bands cover all the most popular styles in contemporary function entertainment. We have festival-style function bands for rustic barn and tipi weddings, soul & Motown showbands for big, glitzy events, Gatsby-style bands for vintage parties and indie-rock covers bands that guarantee a packed dancefloor. For those looking for something a bit different from their covers 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, its 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!
