"Everything was great!! From the beginning everything was so easy to organise with great communication and feedback from the agency which really took the stress out of it all. On the day the band were absolutely perfect! The music was fantastic, exactly what we wanted and the performance of our first dance song in particular was great!!!! The dancefloor was full for the entire night and all of our guests had a great time, so many of them have told us it was the best wedding band that they had heard! The band themselves were also very friendly and helpful, really working with the other suppliers to help make things go smoothly. We had so much fun throughout the night and really could not have asked for anything else from the band and cannot compliment them enough!"

From the start your enquiry will be dealt with by leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available on 0800 564 2240 / info@8ball-band.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.

Book the band

Once you have decided that 8-Ball are the band for you Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the day and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit (the amount varies from £175-£205 depending on the package you go for) to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.

Planning

In the lead up to the wedding you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the day. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, first dance, song requests for the disco or DJ, final payment details etc. All of the details will be recorded and sent to the band in one simple final confirmation email, so you can be sure nothing will get missed and everything discussed will happen as planned on the night.

On the night

8-Ball will arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and pre-mixed disco (or a band member can DJ if you add this to your booking) and will perform 2 hours of live music (2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets). The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.

If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the band would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening. If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) the band could arrive while you are eating to get set up (they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches!) - it takes a minimum of 60 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.

A guide to a standard evening reception would be:

  • 17:45 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On
  • 20:00 - First Dance/First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for evening buffet)
  • 22:00 - Second Set (60 mins)
  • 23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close

Timings are flexible to suit your needs and live sets can be split 3 x 40 mins if you prefer. 8-Ball' standard price is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there is an additional charge.

The band are very happy to perform your choice of first dance for you as long as they have at least three weeks notice of the song choice.

8-Ball also offer a brilliant live lounge-style acoustic set, this is the perfect addition to your drinks reception and can really help set the mood for a great celebration. As the musicians are already booked to perform in the evening, the price of this set represents excellent value when compared to hiring a separate act for your daytime entertainment - it can be as much as 50% cheaper than hiring an equivalent duo.

To discuss hiring 8-Ball to perform at your wedding please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240, or email info@8ball-band.co.uk.

8-Ball are based in London and can travel comfortably to locations such as East Anglia, Cambridgeshire, Surrey, Brighton, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Portsmouth, Southampton, Reading, Midlands and many more locations throughout the U.K.
