GET IN TOUCH!

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@vintageband.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that Vintage Roots 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 £315- £390 depending on the package that you pay 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

Vintage Roots 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 90 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.

A guide to a standard evening reception would be:

  • 17:30 - 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.The standard price for Vintage Roots 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.

Vintage Roots 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 band for your daytime entertainment - it can be as much as 50% cheaper than hiring an equivalent act.

To discuss hiring Vintage Roots to perform at your wedding please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@vintageband.co.uk.

Vintage Roots are based in the Hampshire area, and are a wedding band that also play South West including Bristol, Gloucestershire, Exeter, Winchester, Cornwall, Bournemouth, Swindon, New Forest, Cotswolds, Devon, South Wales and further afield across the U.K.

Charlotte & Simon
Wedding, Emmanuel College, Cambridgeshire
We just wanted to let you know that Vintage Feels absolutely smashed it yesterday. The dancefloor was packed during their live sets and we had so much fun. We are especially grateful to them for being so kind as to play an extra couple of songs at the end of the final set as that took us through to 11pm and meant that everyone was still buzzing and keen to continue the fun at the afterparty venue. Please convey our huge thanks!
Nicola Booth
Wedding, The Great Tythe Barn, Gloucestershire
Thank you so much Vintage Roots for playing at my wedding. You went above and beyond and we had such an incredible time. The dancefloor was filled from the moment you played and also after (another 20 mins as no one wanted it to end!). Many of our guests commented on how great you were throughout and every single song was amazing! We wish we could do it all over again! Thank you!!

Party, Oak Tree House, Bovingdon
Please can you pass on our thanks for a fantastic evening of musical thrills last night. Everyone loved the band and they got everybody on their feet young and old! We wouldn’t hesitate to book Vintage Roots again or to recommend them to friends or family. Harry loved his debut on the keyboards with the band - the highlight of his 14 years thus far!
