Blog about bands:

Whether it's an end-of-year party at work, a birthday full of entertainment, or a beautiful wedding, everyone who has ever organised an event knows that feeling of adding that finishing touch. In many cases, the answer is a great live band.

For example, you can book live bands that come to play for an hour or bands that provide a complete show for the entire event. At Evenses you can also easily choose from live bands with a specialisation in different music styles. From covers of the best pop, rock, jazz, or Latin music, there is a genre for everyone.

It is important to take a few factors into account when booking a live band. For example, it is important that the style of the band fits well with the party and that the cost fits within your budget. It is also advisable to get some information about a few bands so that you can have a solid backup plan.
On our pages, you can find tons of reviews from satisfied customers that can give further insight into booking these bands. We are available seven days a week if you have questions about what we can do for you and your event!

Why is live music worth considering?

Booking a live band often gives a party that wow factor that gets people excited. Certainly, in comparison with music from a CD or the radio, a good band can add some liveliness and excitement to almost any type of event. Think, for example, of a Latin band for a summer night of salsa with friends or a cover band that performs all your partner's favourite 90s songs on their birthday. Whatever the party may be, live music from a good band is rarely a bad idea.

In addition to the musical aspect, booking a live band also provides a nice visual element at your party. A graduation party with a band will look and sound a lot livelier than a live violin orchestra. When the bands interaction with the guests is good, the parties atmosphere will benefit and will add something unique to your average party.

Some tips for booking a live band

At first glance, booking a live band doesn't seem very complicated, but there are certain things to keep in mind and take into account. From availability and musical style to sorting a location and equipment, the more the band fits your wishes the better your party will be.

At Evenses, we are always available if you have questions about booking a band, and to help you decide we've written some important tips on how to do this. If it's the first time that you are going to book a band for a party or event, we recommend that you contact us, so that you can choose the ideal live music together with our booking specialists.

Whether you're booking a band or any type of entertainment, one important tip is to be early. The earlier you contact a band for a booking, the more likely it is that they're still free for the date you have in mind for your party. Depending on how important a particular band is for the party, you can also make the date of the event depend on the availability of the band. In any case, it's wise to not wait until the very last minute to book a live band.

If you have never considered booking a live band then you may be surprised by just how many options there are to choose from. Rock bands, orchestras, cover bands, and even jazz bands will have you searching for days. Therefore, before starting your search for the perfect live band, it is a good idea to make some elements of the party clear to yourself.

What kind of party or event is it? What style of music do you have in mind? Where will it take place? Knowing these details and communicating them to our event specialists will allow your event to be efficiently planned and give you the most suitable act available.

As soon as you have been able to compile a list of bands that you think fit your ideas, it's time to do some more research. You can ask Evenses specific things about the bands to gain further insight on which one is the best for your event. Ask to receive a video of the band at a wedding, pricing estimates based on a 4-piece band versus a 5-piece band, or even where exactly each band is located.

Thoroughly reading the band profiles on our website is the first step into researching the bands. You can get an idea of what kind of music the band can play, what instruments and equipment they need, and where they have recently performed.

It's also important to check if a certain band can perform in the venue that your event is taking place in. In general this isn't a problem, but it's still important to check what's possible and what's permitted at the location. Be aware of the noise limits, equipment needed for the band, the size of the location, and the number of people that will be present. Most bands can adapt to the specific circumstances of your event, but it's always a good idea to make sure everything will be sorted.

One of the big plus points when it comes to booking a live band for your party is that you have the option to make requests. That is, in most cases, you can ask a band to prepare some songs of your choice to play during the party. Think of your daughter's favourite song being played for her birthday or the song that played during the first kiss with your partner. There aren't many better ways to give your party a personal touch. If this sounds like a great plan, make sure to check with the band to see if it's possible.

Finally, the last tip necessary for a successful event planner is to always maintain communication. When you're organising a party, there are few things that are more frustrating than a band that doesn't understand what you want. In addition to the music that the band plays, the manner of communication is also important. Is the band easily accessible? Are they open to suggestions and requests from your side? Do they respond to your messages on time? This may seem minor, but fluent communication makes the entire booking and preparation process a lot more pleasant. That is the reason why Evenses is available seven days a week for consultation, to make this process easier.

FAQ about booking a band
What does it cost to book a band?

As a guideline, you can use these prices for bands.

Band costs:

£ 0 - £ 500 Hobby band
£ 500 - £ 1000 Small band
£ 1000 - £ 2000 Semi - professional band
£ 2000 - £ 3000 Professional band
£ 3000 - £ 5000 Premium band
£ 5000 and higher Well-known band

The exact price of booking a band depends on several factors. Among other things, the quality of the band, the reputation of the band, the size of the live band, the duration that the band has to play, the required sound engineering needed and also the travel distance. Together this determines the final total price of booking the band.

What songs do bands play at a wedding?

Bands often have a list of songs from which they play. They're often open to suggestions and can play requested songs a majority of the time. It's nice to indicate this well before booking.

How long does a band play?

A standard performance consists of 3 sets of 45 minutes. This is divided over a period of 3 to 3.5 hours. Shorter performances are also possible. The maximum playing time of most bands is 4 sets of 40 minutes. This can be divided over a period of 4 to 5 hours.

Is the band taking breaks?

In order to be able to perform in a pleasant, professional and enthusiastic way, the band needs to take a break from time to time. Usually a 1 hour performance is performed without pauses by default. For longer performances, you can assume that there will be a break of about 15 minutes per hour.

What happens during these breaks?

During the breaks, the band provides atmospheric music which they play over their sound system. The music is usually in line with the music that is played during the performance. Some bands come with a DJ, who will take care of the music. Of course you can also book a DJ for playing between these breaks with all of our bands.

How long does the band take to set up?

The set up of bands takes about 45 minutes with 3 to 4 members. With larger bands this takes 1 to 1.5 hours. We always adapt the amount of equipment to the amount of guests. If the crowd is very large (more than 175 people), the set-up time will also be longer.

How long in advance will the band be ready?

By default, bands are ready to start 30 minutes prior to the performance. This means that everything has been built up and sound checked. It is also possible to agree that the band will be ready to start earlier in advance. The band members will of course spend more time on this task, so they will charge a fee for this waiting time.

Does the live band need a stage?

Usually a band doesn't need a stage. Often they can play in a free part of the room if it isn't raised. Depending on the room layout and the number of people present, a stage can be an added value. This way the musicians are more visible to the audience. Bands that often require a stage are premium bands and well-known bands. If you have any other questions, you can always contact us about booking a band.

How long does a live band play?

A standard performance consists of 3 sets of 45 minutes. This is spread over a period of 3 – 3.5 hours. Shorter performances are also possible. The maximum playing time of most live bands is 4 sets of 40 minutes. This can be spread over a period of 4 to 5 hours.

How long does it take to build the cover band?

The formation of bands takes approximately 45 minutes for 3 to 4 piece bands. For larger bands this takes 1 to 1.5 hours. We always adjust the amount of equipment to the group size. If the group is very large (more than 175 people), the setup time will also be longer.
