A roaming band is a totally acoustic act with no additional amplification or audio equipment. They also don’t strictly stick to a stage or fixed position. Instead, they will mingle in amongst your guests, playing songs to different groups at a time. They’re high-energy acts that are absolutely perfect for really getting the party started – you’ll often find one of our roaming acts leading large groups of guests in song or getting a conga line going!

All bands are different depending on the size and the complexity of the production. As a guide, a standard 4-6 piece band will need 90 minutes to set up and sound check. They can do this in one go, or they can access the room for multiple short periods of time – but they will need the full 90 minutes to fully set up and soundcheck.
