“The band were very engaging and friendly. Added such an amazing atmosphere to our party. They were fabulous and I cant thank them enough for making our party such a memorable one. I would definitely recommend them for another party in the future.”Tania - Christmas Party, Gorse Hill House, Woking

“A completely positive experience. The singer/band leader was totally professional, worked out our guests perfectly, and accommodated everything that we requested. Also, thank you to your office team for the efficient way you handled our booking Will have no hesitation in recommended you to others.”Maurice Saragoussi - Birthday & Anniversary, The Grove, Chandlers Cross
“Started planning this wedding over a year and a half ago and Tailored Entertainment were an absolute dream to work with throughout the planning stages. On the big day, we really couldn't have asked for more. Liz was great, the band were great, the DJ was great. We were incredibly happy, as were the guests. No regrets at all. If asked whether I would recommend, I'd say you'd be a fool not to hire them.”Nicole Vardon & Simon Martin - Wedding, Century Club Roof Terrace, London
“The band were superb hosts of our karaoke evening, even learning some of our favourite songs (including my poor attempt at rapping The Streets!).I’ve never had so many comments from friends on how amazing the evening turned out, which is all down to you! Thank you for being brilliant. Will definitely be booking you guys again!”Luke Prankard - Party, The George Vaults, Rochester

No one has ever 'got the party going' and brought everyone together like these guys. Thank you!! I would highly recommend.”Katie Beck - Party, Crescent Amenity Garden
“Thanks for providing the band for our event on Friday. They arrived on time, were very friendly/professional and it was great fun singing on stage with them, all those that had a go very much enjoyed it.”Stan Matthews - Corporate, Heath RUFC The Clubhouse, West Yorkshire
“The band were absolutely amazing and were a real hit at our wedding. They were all really friendly and excellent at what they do - the occasional bit of subtle support was required with those less able to manage the singing task alone (under the age of five, or just acting like it after a few too many!!) and they made everyone feel completely at ease. We have to say an extra special thank you for learning ‘Bat out of Hell’ for us too. It was a great festival karaoke related memory for the four of us and it means a lot that we were able to sing it (badly) again at our wedding - everybody seemed to love the song too, so hopefully the band will be able to use it again at many events to come. We wouldn’t hesitate to book them again - it was so much fun and it added a real twist to the usual wedding evening. Thank you!”Victoria - Wedding, Private Address, Hordle

“Thanks for playing for us - we thought that the band were awesome and our guests certainly had an excellent time. We couldn't be happier with the band and I hope they didn't find us too irritating!

“All good feedback on the band. Went down really well so many thanks to them all.”Tom Bailey - Corporate, Concorde 2, Brighton

“5/5 I'm writing this on the morning after our Christmas Party. So far, every single attendee of the party has made a point of mentioning how fantastic the band were, both from a Karaoke aspect and the Dj'ing in between and afterwards. The songs were spot on, the service seamless and far more people danced the night away than we (or they) expected. On a personal note, my feet are asking me to not get quite so enthusiastic... at least until next year! Please pass on our thanks to the band, they were amazing!”Rapha Racing Ltd - Christmas Party, The Depot, London
“5/5 It was a brilliant evening! One very small thing was that the band's list of songs to choose from included some which required a five piece and so as such they couldn't fulfil all requests. However, this really didn't impact what was a really brilliant evening. The band and host were warm, friendly, organised and extremely talented! Everyone had a great time and I would definitely book again. A big THANK YOU from all of us and have a very happy Christmas!”Zinc Media - Christmas Party, Tiger Tiger, London
“5/5 - Everything went brilliantly - please thank all the members of the band for giving us such a great evening. Thanks too to Phoebe and Amy for the smooth booking process and pre-event communication - you made everything so easy for me! Everyone said it was the best Xmas party we ever had!”Susan Lotto - Corporate, De Vere Oxford Thames, Sandford on Thames
“5/5. Many thanks to you and the band for making our wedding day celebrations such a blast. The band were fantastic. The bride's father Jack and our friend Phil sat in and played with the band on some songs and they were both utterly professional and accomodating in all respects. The singer was both a brilliant singer and also very helpful in assisting our friends with the tricky bits but still letting our guests take the lead. All our guests had a fab time and a measure of the band was that the dancefloor was largely full from 8pm -12. So thanks again in making our day really special.”Jackie and Paul - Wedding - Bank of England Sports Centre, London
“We first met your band at my sisters wedding about 7 years ago and were so good we wanted them for our own wedding this year. The band was absolutely fantastic!!!!!!

We are still having guests say how brilliant the band were.”Sophie Pratt - Wedding, Hillside Farm

“The band were great. They dealt with us really well - think they were a little surprised how popular they were with the guests! Could have still been going today to fulfil the requests!”Martin Bracewell - Wedding, Brookfield Barn, Horsham

“Hi Amy, Thanks so much, please pass on our thanks to the band, they were brilliant!”Rich & Claire Thrit - Birthday Party, St Albans
“We are slowly getting back to normal after the past couple of weeks of wedding madness, and this is just a quick note to thank you and the band for helping us to have an amazing night last Saturday. Everyone who attended said it was one of the best wedding parties they had been to, and I think that the majority of people got involved and had great fun. Would you please pass our appreciation on to the band, and to Liz in particular. They were all absolutely fantastic, and Liz was so warm and friendly and made everyone feel relaxed and keen to join in! My husband (hahaha – still weird!) wasn’t too keen on the karaoke element, but the photos and videos prove that he loved it and he admits now that it was the biggest part of the fun on the night! We won’t hesitate to recommend the Live Karaoke Band and Tailored Entertainment to anyone who is looking to host a great party – and we are both retiring from work in the very near future, so maybe we will be in touch again soon! Thank you all so much. You’ve all been brilliant!”Yvonne and Colin - Wedding, The Reid Rooms, Essex
“Thanks for making our wedding party such a giggle! The band played 3 hours and people wanted more!!! There wasn't one song the compere had to sing as all of us were up! The groom barged in most songs as he loved it that much! The band were wonderful and I wouldn't hesitate to book them again! Just need an excuse for the party! Thanks so much!!!!!”Rachel Lingley - Wedding, Queen Hotel, Chester
“Thanks for an awesome set at our Christmas party last night! You guys were amazing, your repertoire, funky sound, vocals - a real crowd pleaser! Just a shame it couldn't go on all night!”Arti Joshi - Corporate Event, Stationers Hall, London
“Oh my goodness... What an amazing night we all had on Saturday! The band was amazing. Everyone loved it... No shortage of singers. Everyone wants to do it again next weekend :-) But hopefully you'll get some more business from some of my friends as their birthdays come around. Lots of people had said they had never done karaoke before and wouldn't ever have wanted to, but now they love it. Singing is such a tonic! Please extend my thanks to the band. They were really great.”Catherine - Birthday Party, Hilton St Anne's Manor, Surrey
“Hi Phoebe, The band were amazing! We all had such a good time and there was never a moment without people wanting to go up. Pass on our thanks to the band, they made our night special.”Rosalyn Grimshaw - Wedding, Sherbourne Park, Sherbourne, Warwick

“The band were just brilliant. All our guests commented on just how amazing they were, we could literally have danced and sang along all night. Please pass on our thanks to them. Many thanks”Liz and Mike - Wedding, Mill House, Radipole, Weymouth
“We did have a great night! The band were punctual, and efficient with their set up, and once they started they really kept the party atmosphere going until the end. I would 100% hire them again if I wanted another bandeoke or even a function band as they were excellent musicians.”Bethany Rouse - Corporate Event, The Royal Holloway, Egham
“Hi Nick, Just a quick email to let you know that your guys were really good. Very easy to work with and made the evening a great success.”Barry - Corporate Event, London
“The band were absolutely superb, everything we could have hoped for and more. Great musicians that also know how to handle people in various states of inebriation! I would especially like you to pass on our thanks to the guitarist who allowed a couple of our delegates to borrow his guitar to play a few songs, this was very generous. I would also like you to pass on my thanks to the singer, Gemma (sp) who was absolutely superb at handling our delegates, in particular one person who hogged the microphone quite a bit. Gemma covered this expertly and knew exactly when to take over. A real skill. Thanks again and I hope we get the opportunity to work with you again at a future event.”Sandi Atkinson - Corporate Event (BOHS), Hilton London Metropole, London
“Live Karaoke Band were amazing! The band were so fun and friendly and the lead singer was great at keeping everyone in time with the music. She also had an amazing voice! I highly recommend this for anyone having a party as it’s a whole evening’s entertainment and such good value for money. Thank you Tailored Entertainment!”Alissa Gutteridge - Corporate Event, London

“We want to say a big thank-you for an amazing evening of entertainment!!!! It was absolutely brilliant – even better than we could have possibly imaged.

Thanks, Debbi”Debbi Marco – Wedding, Essex
“I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for an excellent event. Liz was a real winner on the night, she took hold of our guys by the scruff of the neck (almost literally :P) and really got the crowd motivated!! Never before have I seen our dance floor so busy with people genuinely drawn into the music and the show that you guys put on. I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for something different to bring to an event.”Mike Emeny – Corporate Event for Rockstar, Lincoln
“Can I just say from all staff at Plantsbrook and especially myself thank you for a fantastic night yesterday…. Perfect from start to finish and worth every penny… Everyone has been saying what a good time they has so again thank you!!!”Andy Nightingale – Staff Christmas Part, Birmingham
“Dear Nick and the band, Just wanted to say a massive thank you again for yesterday – such a huge success! Your band are awesome, and everyone truly enjoyed the opportunity to front them. I was very pleased at how many of the guests participated, it was the perfect entertainment for our college garden party. I am especially grateful that we could use your PA for the whole event – made the organisation much easier. It was a pleasure dealing with you and your band, and hopefully see you at another event soon (our porters were very impressed and will be getting in touch for their party!). Cheers, Anthony and the Caius MCR Committee”Anthony Khawaja – Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge

Thank you from both of us. Andy”Andy Nightingale – Wedding, Walsall

“On behalf of Sharon and Roxy, I wanted to write to thank you and especially the band for giving us all a fantastic night of entertainment. The band were absolutely wonderful – not only were they great fun, every single member of the band were extremely professional, and went out of their way to make sure everything ran smoothly. It was a brilliant evening and we were all taken aback with their musical talent! They should not be doing Karaoke – they should be making bloody albums!!!!! Please pass on our sincere gratitude and apologies for such a late finish – they worked their socks off!!!! My thanks to you for organising everything!”Amanda Casbon – 18th Birthday Party, Bracknell
“Just a short email to say thank you so much to the band on Saturday, everyone had a blast. Even the most unlikely of singers got up!! Look forward to using you again in the future.”Sabre Insurance – Corporate Event, Dorking Golf Club, Surrey
“Dear Nick, We just wanted to.send you an email to say how great the band were at our wedding. We were really impressed and many of our guests commented how fun it had been. For example, they were really flexible when we ended up running a bit late, the sound quality was great, they were brilliant at helping people along when they needed it and letting them take the spotlight when they didn’t. I also thought they were generally just very friendly really integrated into the wedding well, so it felt like having a few extra guests. If I’m honest it was a particular relief as we booked them without having seen them play so didn’t know exactly what to expect. I expect many of your potential clients are in a similar position and we’d be very happy to provide a positive review or similar to help give people confidence that they’re booking a great band. Let me know if there’s anything like that which we can do and which would be helpful.”Anna Harvey – Wedding, London

“Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you to you and the rockaoke band for our wedding. All of our guests have said how much fun they had and Tom and I had a brilliant time. I’ve since seen some videos of me singing and you definitely won’t be seeing me on X Factor any time soon, but we couldn’t have asked for better entertainment. Once again thanks”Kelly & Tom – Wedding, Surrey
“Thankyou very much for an excellent show. You were all brilliant. Everyone had a great evening and are all hounding me to do it again. If I do I won’t hesitate to contact you. Thanks again.”Paul Gallaway – Private Party, Somerset
“Hi Amy, I’ve been meaning to email and say thank you to the band for a wonderful evening on 23rd August at the Horniman Museum.

Best wishes, Hilary”Hilary, Wedding, The Horniman Museum, Forest Hill

Many, many thanks and kind regards.”Thomas Miller (Julian Brown) – Wedding, Royal Garden Hotel, London

“Amy, Caroline has asked me to drop you a line to let you know how it went on 6th February. The band were a big hit, with people fighting to get on the list! Everyone enjoyed the unique approach – thank you very much for organising for us. Indeed, we have been asked to provide your details for a few people who want to book them for their own events!”Caroline Ford + Phil Hayes – Corporate, Peterborough Marriott Hotel, Peterborough
“Hello Amy, Just a note to say thank you to the band for a really excellent show. They are probably the best band I’ve heard in many years. They are great musicians who just get on and play without the silly bells and whistles that so called bands seem to need these days. Top notch and I would recommend them without reservation to anyone wanting a great live band for any occasion. They were just perfect for the party. They have a great song list and are most obliging. Nothing was too much trouble even with young children aspiring to be pop stars. Great stuff keep it up.”Tony Preedy – Birthday Party, Bicester Hotel, Oxfordshire
“Hi Amy, Rockaoke were truly amazing, we’re so glad we hired them! Not only were they excellent musicians and brilliantly talented, we were also really late on our timings on the day and they were so flexible and accommodating in dealing with it. We really appreciated it. All our guests had an absolute ball and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who was considering them. The entertainment was really for my benefit as my lovely new husband isn’t really a fan of karaoke, however guess who sang about 3 songs?!!! That’s right, him! So the band clearly did a great job in convincing even the most sceptical of people :) The band were totally on time and very professional too. Thank you so much to both Tailored Entertainment and Rockaoke in helping to make our big day even more special.”Katherine Sobey – Wedding, Cowely Manor, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

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?
60-90 minutes. 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 prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.
How long do you play for?
We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (with the option of adding a third hour of live music) in the evening and 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.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception?
Although we do not provide any additional sets for drinks receptions, we highly recommend the soloists featured on the Tailored Entertainment website: https://www.tailored-entertainment.com/soloists-duos
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 difference between the ‘pre-mixed DJ service’ that comes with the standard package and the 'band member to DJ live' which is an optional extra?
The pre-mixed DJ service is where the band put on a bespoke playlist (you can request up to 30 songs in advance for this) through the PA before and after their live sets. We do this at most events and it works great - the volume of the music would be the same as if you had a DJ.
If you upgrade to the live DJ service, you can still send over preferences in advance, but you will also have a band member selecting and mixing tracks live on the night, as well as taking requests. The DJ will be happy to make important announcements but they will not talk constantly over or between tracks (that's just not our style!). We also think it's important to say that the DJ won't have a separate DJ booth - they will set up in an appropriate space (ideally to the side of the stage) and the PA/lighting will be the same as what is being used by the band.
What is the website guide price based on?
The published guide price is based on our 4-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Fareham. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we 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, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We 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?
Will you perform our first dance?
Yes, as long as we have three weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.
How much space do you require?
We 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?
The band's standard rider is for a hot meal and soft drinks for the band members or a £15 pp rider buyout.
Can we see you play live before booking?
As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
We have bands available to hire nationwide...
