What time will we arrive?

We will usually arrive and set up from 6pm onwards. For weddings, this means we are ready to set up as soon as the wedding breakfast and speeches are finished. With corporate and charity events, we will always set up and sound check before guests arrive. If you require the band to set up earlier in the day there is an additional fee of £50 for every hour before 6pm.

How long does it take for us to set up?

We take an hour to set up and sound check. Lift's and stairs may increase load in time.

How much will we charge?

Please contact us for a personalised quote on 07833 044 720 or email bookings@majortomband.co.uk

How long will we play for?

We will play 3 x 45 minute sets. In our experience, this is the perfect amount of time to have a band playing.

How long are the intervals?

We request intervals of at least 15 minutes but this can be longer to suit your requirements on the day.

What time should we start playing?

This is completely up to you and your schedule on the day. We find it's often best to start the band at around 9pm but this is purely a guide. We also find it's best to serve the buffet during the band breaks or before the band start.

Do we provide music between and before our sets?

Yes, we're happy to provide music via an iPod between sets. We have a fixed play list on our iPod, but if you have particular songs in mind, you're also welcome to create your own iPod play lists which can be played through the PA system.

Will we require refreshments?

We request that the band is provided with soft drinks throughout our stay at the venue. We also request food for 4 members of the band. This doesn't have to be to the same standard as your guests meal, just something before we play to keep energy levels up. We often leave for the gig in the middle of the afternoon and won't arrive home until the early hours so some hot food is always highly appreciated.

Do we provide our own PA system/lighting equipment?

Yes, we are completely self-contained so you don't need to worry about a thing. We use a top class LED lighting rig and PA system.

Do we need to hire a raised stage?

No, a stage is always a great addition to a performance but is not a requirement.

How much space do you require?

We are very accommodating when it comes to space and can fit into just about any room or marquee. For weddings and events in larger rooms, we request 5 meters in width and 3 meters in depth.

What are the minimum power requirements?

We require at least 2 independent 13 amp sockets. If your marquee company has requested details, please advise that our PA system and lighting use approximately 5kw and a single 16amp power supply is not sufficient.

How do I confirm a booking?

If you've requested a quote and would like to go ahead with the booking, we'll need your full address and contact details along with the venue address. We'll then email over a contract with full terms and conditions included. This will then need to be signed and returned to us to confirm the booking. A 20% deposit will also be required. An invoice with payment details will be included with the contract.

How would you like to be paid on the night?

We request that our clients pay us in cash before the band perform. We do not accept cheques.
