Do I need to book a sound limiter-friendly band?

Sound limiters are increasingly common in venues across the UK, due to tighter council noise restrictions. These devices are designed to cut off power to the band when the noise in a room exceeds a certain volume.

Tripping the power interrupts your entertainment and can even damage the band’s equipment. Most of our function bands can play within the restrictions of a noise limiter set to 92db. However, if your venue’s limiter is lower but you’re set on a live band, you still have plenty of options for a quieter sound that doesn’t compromise on quality or atmosphere.

All bands listed here use electronic drum kits and amp modelling pedals to control their volume while keeping a dynamic sound and your guests on the dancefloor.

If you want a stripped-back sound without having to sacrifice live instruments, it's worth browsing our acoustic bands or wandering musicians – these acts should be able to play within the limits of most sound limiters.
