Can you provide background musicians for hire in Wales?

Do we need to provide any equipment for the band?

Our bands all come fully equipped for your event – it’s just worth getting in touch if you think your event will exceed 250 guests, as extra equipment might then be necessary. You just need to make sure that the band has a power source to plug in to and a space to perform!

We recommend a flat and sheltered stage area of at least 3x3 meters for a 3-piece band – then add an extra metre squared per band member that you have booked.

A raised stage is preferable for maximum impact but our bands are flexible to all kinds of set ups!
