With big-named festival appearances including the big daddy, ultimate showcase of of them all being Glastonbury, be sure to relive your most special of weekends on your most special of days with your soul mate and your best of friends and family by booking the fantastic four-piece today who are one of the finest London wedding bands out there and who also rival any touring act out there.

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@smithsonsband.com and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that Smith & Sons 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 £330 to £405 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

Smith & Sons 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 Smith & Sons 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.

Smith & Sons 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 Smith & Sons to perform at your wedding please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@smithsonsband.com.

Smith & Sons are based in the London area, and are hired all across the U.K and play in venues including Grosvenor House, Syon Park, Troxy Theatre, Gibson Hall, The Hurlingham Club, Cafe de Paris, One Whitehall Place, Claridge's in Mayfair, St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, Town Hall Hotel, The Bingham, The Sheraton Grand and many more including venues elsewhere in the South East as well as South West, East Anglia, Midlands and further afield.

The band arrived and unpacked straight away. They introduced themselves and were an absolute delight!

Wedding, Coombe Abbey, Coventry
Can not recommend Smith & Sons highly enough. They are an unbelievable band and would definitely use them again in the future! Thank you so much!
Pippa & Dan
Wedding, Colehayes Park, Newton Abbot
I just wanted to say that Smith & Sons were absolutely brilliant! We were expecting good things as we enjoyed their demo video but they completely exceeded our expectations. The acoustic set was lovely and really set our reception off to a great start. And then the evening - wow!! They kept the dancefloor rammed from start to finish. We didn't want them to end! So many of our guests told us how good they thought they were, and some even went as far as saying they were the best wedding band they had ever seen!! The variety of songs they played was spot on and we loved the 2 different styles of sets. They were also extremely polite and friendly. They were very respectful getting things ready and made sure things were how we wanted them. Overall, we couldn't praise them enough and are super grateful for the big part they played in making our wedding such a brilliant day.

Wedding, Careys Manor Hotel, New Forest
Loved every moment! Got all our guests up on the dance floor with some great songs. Thank you for making our wedding so special x Great band and would 100% recommend them.
Simon Luckings
Wedding, Haughley Park Barn, Stowmarket
The band turned up when requested and set up very quietly and promptly. Everything went as scheduled and the band were outstanding. Far better than we even expected. All our guests said how great the band was, with the dance floor full from start to finish, even in between sets and right at the end when we just had music playing! Really friendly guys and couldn’t recommend them enough!
