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 live 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 live band for your event, Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the function 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), with the balance due within 7 days of event completion.

PLANNING

In the lead up to your event, you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the evening. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, live set preferences, 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.

A guide to a corporate awards night/dinner would be:

  • 17:00 - Band Arrive
  • 18:30 - Background Music On For Guest Arrival & Welcome Drinks
  • 19:30 - Dinner Served
  • 21:00 - Speeches/Awards (we can supply mic if required)
  • 21:30/22:00 - Live music and disco 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 a special request for you as long as they have at least three weeks notice of the song choice. For an additional fee they can also learn bespoke stings for awards presentations.

To discuss hiring Smith & Sons perform at your corporate function please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@smithsonsband.com

Smith & Sons are based in the south of England and are available for hire across the U.K. and internationally.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

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.

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!
Joanna Morris
Wedding, The Barn at Brynich, Brecon
