What do bands cost?
There is no "set fee" for a good band and it varies depending on the band. However, as a very, general guide to help you plan your budget: Two-Piece = £500-£700, Three-Piece - £600 -£900, Four-Piece = £750 - £1000, and Five-Piece or more = £1000 - £1500.
Please remember, this is a very, general guide and some bands charge more or less than these fees. Always ask us for a specific quote.
Travelling expenses may also have to be added to fees depending on how far the band has to travel to the venue.
How do I choose a band?
Rather than just asking "what bands are available", we recommend you spend some time reading about the bands and listening to their music samples. This will help you decide on the type of band you like.
All the bands listed below are great bands and have an excellent track record. However, everyone has different tastes when it comes to music - so, it's better if you decide which band or bands you like.
When you have done this, then contact us and we can check availability, get you a quote, and arrange a date for you to see the band.
