Choosing trio acts
Deciding whether to include any vocals or not makes a great difference for your live entertainment. A trio consisting of string instruments as your wedding string trio will provide a different performance to a wedding guitarist. Same goes for jazz trios (or piano trios) and rat pack singers. Usually instrumental music trios are booked for background music. You can find different styles, from jazz trios to classical strings trios.
You can also take a look at our wedding entertainment ideas for your live wedding music. These will include 1920s jazz bands, steel bands and mariachi bands available to book. See wedding entertainment ideas for wedding ceremony and wedding reception (drinks receptions and evening receptions).
It will come down to what you want to hear for your corporate entertainment or weddings functions and special events. If you want to hear Ed Sheeran's love song lyrics as you walk down the aisle, a wedding music trio would be best. Or choose acoustic trios to perform uplifting popular songs at your dinner party. Hiring an acoustic guitar trio is as popular as jazz bands and tribute bands at corporate events.
You could also hire classical music acts. Such as, classical guitarists, classical pianists, wedding string trios or classical trios.

See below for answers to many of the most common booking questions for trios:
What do I do to book a trio?
In order to get started you only need to send your enquiry. You can tell us about your event type and what kind of music you would prefer. It is best to include as much information as possible. Although, not to worry if you are not sure about the exact timings. We can then get to work finding you great bands for hire for your booking. If you want more control please feel free to use the Additional Information section.
- the size of band you prefer or the venue permits, the genre of music you'd like. For example Rock, Pop, 60's
- the type of event you are planning. If you're planning a wedding reception we can find you expert wedding bands
- your budget. This will ensure only trios for hire within your price range will be found
- and any other details which you feel may help. For example, if you select birthday party as your event type and tell us it's for a 75th birthday. We can then find you some great classic acts to get the night swinging!
Once completed, press the 'Set us to work!' button. We'll then search our network for the right trios for hire area which match your enquiry. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3. You can take control and get exactly the music you need for your event.
How long do trios for hire need to set-up?
The time it takes to set-up varies depending on the amount of trios involved. A solo act can be ready in just a few minutes. Whereas a 10-piece may need an hour to 90 minutes. This is to position all the musicians on the stage, prepare the equipment and conduct a sound-check. In either case, it is best to agree with the bands regarding the time of arrival. This will allow for them to prepare for your event. This should ideally be before your guests or patrons arrive.
I need to cancel or re-arrange a trio booked, what do I do?
If you need to cancel a booking this is best done directly with the chosen artist as soon as possible. Simply contact the band you selected for the event and explain the reason for the cancellation. Simply changing your mind is not usually a good enough reason to cancel! Please ensure you provide the musicians with as much notice as possible. As without it, they will not be able to schedule another performance on the cancellation date. This may lead to a loss of earnings for them.
When discussing the terms and conditions of the engagement with your musician please discuss what will happen on cancellation. Musicians are human-beings too. So likely they will understand if you have a genuine reason for the cancellation. If you need to re-arrange an engagement you should contact them. Let them know why and when you would like them to perform. They may need time to check their calendar before they can confirm the re-arrangement.
What if the trio cancels?
If a musician cancels you will need to find a replacement as soon as possible. Firstly, you should enter another enquiry form. So we can help you as we have many musicians available at short notice. Secondly you need to decide the impact of the cancellation. If the cancellation has not allowed sufficient time for a replacement to be found what your losses may be. This should then be cross-referenced with the agreement you discussed with the band prior to the booking. You can download a live music Engagement Agreement document to use for bookings here.
Can I see the trios performing live before booking?
Of course! All of our acts are active musicians. The band selected for your engagement is very likely working in your local area. Many acts have websites which they can direct you to. These will usually include a list of the dates they are playing and where. Provided it's a public event simply pop along and have a listen. If you like what you hear don't forget to introduce yourselves. And let them know you discovered them via the ACE Music Booking Agency website. You can also discuss a pre-booking viewing when you discuss your engagement with the bands. As they are keen to secure the booking they will be happy to let you know when you can see them play and to discuss your engagement.
Is it possible to pick the songs the trios for hire will perform?
Choosing which songs to perform depends a great deal on the type of band you are booking. Some bands will work very hard on a particular series of songs. They sometimes link a number of songs together into a medley. They are likely to have a perfected routine to last the entire evening. In this case it is very difficult for them to change the order of songs to include your choice. However they may still be able to perform a special song for you, a first dance for example. Other bands will happily play any song you request providing you give them enough notice to learn.
Many international trios to hire travel the world with over 300 songs in their repertoire. They will likely know the songs you like already! In both cases, don't be afraid to ask! It is important you get exactly the music you want at your event.
Will the acts for hire learn a first dance song request?
Yes. Or at least they should! In the many years of operating as a professional agency we never came across a music artist that will not happily learn a song for your first dance. However, you may need to bear in mind the type of song you have requested and style of the trio you chose. Some bands may not fit the instrumentation and music style. They simply may not be able to accurately represent the song you chose. For example choosing a hip-hop multi vocal song for a solo cello player! It could be better having the band play the official MP3 version through their PA system instead.
How loud will the trio be?
The volume the musician performs at will depend in the most part on the type of instruments involved. Particularly un-amplified instruments like drums and brass have a fairly set volume level. Amplified instruments will then be required to set their volume appropriately to musically blend together. If you have chosen trios that are entirely amplified then their volume can be set quieter. A hi-tech trio for hire using backing tracks would be an example.
Will the trios be suitable for sound limiters?
This will depend on the level of the sound limiter and the type of band selected. If your venue has a sound limiter please discuss this when booking the band. If you are unsure then it is best to choose a band which is entirely amplified. For example, without drums or horns. The sound produced will be more controllable than a band which has un-amplified instruments. Many trios for hire are experienced in working with sound limitations and will be able to advise whether they will have any issue.
Do I need to provide anything for the trios for hire?
You will only need to provide a space in which to perform and payment. The space they require will depend on the size of their performance set up. The musicians will be experienced able to advise you in more detail. The payment for the engagement should be issued by prior arrangement. You should discuss if it is better a week before or directly after the performance. This is usually via a BACS transfer, cash or cheque.
What if I have a complaint about the trio?
If you have a complaint this should be raised as soon as possible with the musician themselves. The sooner a band knows there is an issue, the quicker they can rectify the problem if it is within their power. A great way to avoid complaints is to use the ACE Music Booking agents’ Engagement Agreement form here. This covers many of the areas which can result in a complaint if not agreed before the performance. For example when the band is to arrive, set-up, play, break, finish as well as agreement regarding cancellations and payments.
How will the trios for hire plan my event's performance?
Exactly what you want them to as agreed! This usually takes the form of their arrival before the event is to start in order to set-up and sound-check. Once done they will likely make themselves scarce or get changed into their performance clothing or costume. Once the music begins the trio will perform the type of music you heard from the examples they provided. They will play for the agreed amount of time, usually taking small break in-between sets. At the end they will pack up their equipment and depending on what you agreed with them in the terms and conditions, accept payment and leave.
What equipment will the trio provide?
The band will supply all the equipment they need to perform at your venue. If you have any particular equipment requests then please discuss with the band booked beforehand. Likely the band will provide a suitable lighting system, PA and great songs to get everyone dancing and singing along all night long!
Will the musicians need a lot of space?
The amount of space the bands will need to set-up varies greatly. This depends on whether you're looking for a 4-piece band or larger bands. Smaller bands will only require a couple of square metres and a plug socket in order to perform. Whereas a 10 piece band will be best suited to a stage area which is usually much larger and elevated. These bands may also require additional plug sockets for the increased amount of musical equipment they will supply to your event. Please discuss the space your trio requires before the booking engagement.
How long is the trio's performance?
As long as you need it to be! Generally bands perform in sections of 45 minutes to an hour with a small break in between. The break usually lasts around 15 to 20 minutes. So if you require your trio to perform across 3 hours it is likely they will play for 45 minutes 3 times. Some bands performing across 2 hours like to play for 45 minutes, take a 15 minute break then play for the whole last hour. There's also bands that when asked to perform across 3 hours will do just that without a break! Just remember to discuss and agree exactly how long you want your band to perform, what length their sets of music will be and how long their breaks will be.
Can I customise my trio’s performance?
That will depend on how exactly you want to customise the band’s show! Many bands are happy to discuss any ways in which they can perfectly fit your event. For example to wear themed clothing or to perform a particular genre of songs. You may also want particular songs performed at particular times or announcements to be made. Just let the trio know exactly what you would like to customise. Especially if you plan to have them swinging from the chandeliers!
How much will it cost to hire a trios?
This will obviously depend on the bands in the area and what your budget may be. It also matters for how long you want the band to perform at your event. If there are any extra requirements you can stipulate them on your band booking form. A local solo trio can be available from as little as hundred pounds whereas a world class 10 piece wedding band can command thousands. ACE Music Booking agency will find musicians for hire which fit your budget. if you entered your budget onto your enquiry form, you can rest assured you will be able to afford the trios we find.
What happens if a member of the trio I booked is ill?
Illness is something all musicians for hire should be prepared for. It usually means another musician (a deputy also known as a 'dep') stepping in. This is in order to still perform the engagement. The deputy musician will be well versed in the music that the musician performs and you will be unlikely to hear any difference. Although they may appear different. If the act hasn't prepared a deputy in case of illness or the deputy is not available then they may have to either cancel the performance. You will need to agree with the band what happens in-case of illness before confirming the booking.
What size of act should I hire?
Whatever size of act you want! You should bear in mind your event and the space at your venue when booking your band. If you are having a party for friends in a small garden then a smaller band would be a good choice. However if you've hired a large hall with a big stage area then large function bands would be a better choice. They will fill the stage and the hall with sound.
Just let us know on the booking form the size of band you prefer and we'll find it for you. If you're not sure or have no preference on the band size then select multiple options that may apply. We'll supply you with the best acts of many different sizes to choose from.
Do all music artists perform live?
The musicians in the bands will perform live but not all shows are completely live. Although many bands are fully live, some bands will use musical backing tracks in order to perform with a larger sound. For example a soloist may use a backing track accompaniment. If you have a preference then please discuss this with the band as they would rather perform to their maximum potential. Even world famous music artists use backing tracks!
Can trios play different styles of music?
Some bands perform music across multiple genres and decades whereas other prefer to focus their band on a particular genre. To our experience, trios that play multiple styles of music are perfect choices at events. As there is usually a mixed age of audience, for example at a birthday party. If you want your artist to perform different styles then simply enter this info into the booking enquiry form.
What are the minimum power requirements for a trio?
For some acts no power at all is needed. A string quartet does not need any power and are a great choice for venues with no power outlets. Small bands will usually only need one or two power sockets. This will depend on the type of instruments they play or equipment they use. Whereas larger bands can need multiple power options in order to set-up in their correct configuration. When booking please ensure you discuss the power requirements and availability.
Are the music artists PAT tested with adequate public liability insurance (PLI)?
Yes and yes! Every type of musician for hire on the ACE Music Booking agency network needs to comply with both. This ensures that the band you choose to hire will be legally able to perform at your venue without issue. The musicians on our network cannot join without confirming both of these points. Although you may still need to check that their certifications are still valid for the date of performance.
How do I make a booking?
See below for useful information to help you when booking a music act
Live music can be as entertaining as you want it to be. For example, you could have your entertainment agency to find an act to fit the theme of your event. They would perform music from a particular era and dress the part to really get your party started. Another idea would be to hire tribute artists as live entertainment. Why not represent the music of your favourite artists at your event. If your function is a garden party, a string quartet playing in the background as your guests mingle would be delightful. Maybe you want your live music to fit all ages attending your event by playing set lists from 60's to the present day. We have many more ideas, just get in touch and we'll help you book a night to remember.
More entertainment ideas

Truth is, there are many different types of acts available to hire. Maybe have rock pop function bands perform dance floor filling energetic songs. This could bring your private party to life.

Live Party Music
For your party entertainment event bands may be a great choice. As they will fill dance floors with lively sets of chart hits. For example a drinks reception, corporate event and private party. These include funk bands, motown bands, jazz bands, ceilidh bands, swing bands, steel bands and rat packs. Tribute acts such as Stevie Wonder or Michael Jackson tributes are also a great choice for evening entertainment.
Live party bands would be what your party needs. Bands and musicians perform different types of music. Their recommendation from another client may be for a young couple's engagement party. This doesn't mean they would be the perfect professional party band for your event. The similar situation applies for a 65th birthday. But, the ultimate function bands may charge above your budget.

Please feel free to send your enquiry with your event location and we will find your perfect act. Whether you're looking for 60s rock bands, Christmas entertainers or live wedding music acts.
Booking live music entertainment for corporate parties is no different to other events. Please make sure you have provided us with as much information as possible. This includes the age range of the audience. By knowing this your function band would know if it's appropriate to perform any pop chart hits or not.
Your corporate event entertainment may be needing a live band for events and functions. Booking corporate party entertainment can be for various reasons.

These types of acts can also perform at any corporate event, private party or charity event. Bands play popular covers or rock covers from famous bands and themes. Such as, Bruno Mars, James Bond, Stevie Wonder, Dire Straits, Lady Gaga. You can offer to customise the set-list the band performs to fit your event.
Receive direct quotes from a world class band available to hire. Your act of choice can live wedding bands or saxophone players. Either way the quotes you receive will be direct. And the acts will work with you to make sure your event runs smoothly.
Live Wedding Ceremony Music
For your wedding ceremony you could consider wedding entertainers and live musicians that provide background music. These include world music acts, live lounge style bands, classical musicians, acoustic bands and acoustic duos.
Live wedding bands, wedding singers and event entertainment acts can be subtle and energetic as you need. You may want to choose from wedding ceremony musicians and solo duos for your special day. A mariachi band or a band offering evening entertainment with a set list of pop songs is more suitable. It might just be a tribute act of chart hits from artists like Bruno Mars .
If you're planning to have live wedding ceremony music, get some quotes and ask questions to the acts. Your wedding ceremony musician cost may lower if you engage in a conversation. Make sure to include any extra and useful information. Have you included your entire event's timing instead of only live music performance? The band's quote may include a live performance for 5 hours. Whereas you may only need the live music for 2 lots of 30 minutes.
Wedding Reception Entertainment
There are plenty wedding entertainment ideas. But your wedding reception entertainment needs to fit your unique wedding. You thought about wedding musicians and function bands for weddings. What does your evening entertainment really need?
Live wedding bands are popular when it comes to reception entertainment. But, a wedding band for hire may perform many different styles of music. From roaming bands to soul bands or singing waiters. Some use the term 'dance bands' for wedding music bands. If it's not the type of music you like, there may not be any dancing. So, how do you choose the music for your wedding?
Perfect weddings do not come with a manual full of wedding entertainment ideas. It's your and your guests' unique wedding entertainment. It should be what you want it to be. If you want your wedding band for hire to perform indie rock you should include this in your enquiry. Don't hesitate to tell us if you're not happy to consider any 70's disco karaoke classics. The more details you give on your enquiry, the better quotes you will receive.
If cost is a major consideration, you may want to tell us you would be interested in local wedding bands. Both local wedding bands and professional wedding music bands are experienced. So, don't hesitate to request some evening reception ideas along with your quote. They can provide different prices for different performance lengths. This may help you plan the timings for the evening.
Wedding musicians have experience in performing at different sections of a wedding. This may mean that the same band can perform a different set list for wedding breakfasts. This can lower the costs if you were considering a separate act for the breakfast.
Planning Your Wedding Music
Choosing your wedding music can seem overwhelming. This depends on your reception music and ceremony music ideas. You want to be choosing the perfect wedding ceremony music and wedding reception music. Both brides and grooms want the best for their wedding day. So how do you start planning the music for your wedding?
We admit, wedding planning is hectic and there isn't an ultimate guide. Yet, your ultimate wedding happens when you're choosing the perfect elements that suit you. Live music entertainment for your wedding day is no different. It needs to be the wedding ceremony music you like. It needs to be the wedding reception music you like. But when everything gets too hectic, how do you remember what you like?
This is similar to being asked what your favourite song is after a busy day. It takes time to gather your thoughts. That's why we're here to help. Whether it's a bridal party or civil ceremony the more information you give us the better our acts can help you. For example, you can ask for guidance in the 'Additional Information' section. This could be about ceremony music ideas or wedding song suggestions. ACE acts are experienced and happy to give brides and grooms wedding ideas on ceremony songs too.
Wedding Musician Cost
One of the questions arise would be the wedding ceremony musician cost. This would depend on what you want from your live wedding ceremony entertainment. Costs might be average if you're booking a professional classical music artist performing during signing of the register. This would be true for other solo acts such as singer guitarists and opera singers. You may want to book a string trio or gospel choir to perform while the bride's walking down the aisle. Although, the cost may increase here as there will be more musicians. Wedding breakfasts would have similar booking details.
The "Wedding Guides"
One thing to remember is that YOU are the ultimate wedding's ultimate guide. It's your civil ceremony, bridal party and it's your wedding song. You will be walking down the aisle. If you want a Caribbean beach vibe a steel band would be perfect. Another idea would favour a gospel choir for a church ceremony. Don't hesitate to ask for wedding ideas from a band available to hire. Don't have wedding planning tools to make decisions for you and have you pay more for things you don't want.

Specific hire requests
If you know exactly the type of music you want to book at your event then we're happy to help. You don't always have to book the same pop bands. You may be more interested in modern day music or perhaps rock covers bands. By entering your information into the enquiry form we can refine the acts we find. Also, if you have a specific request, simply use the 'Any other info?' box on the enquiry form and tell us any thoughts you have and we'll suggest some fantastic musicians to fill your dance floor.
Difference between tribute and cover act hire?
The difference between a tribute act and a cover music act is the type of music they play. A tribute music act usually performs songs from a particular famous artist. Or they only perform music in a particular era or theme. Most cover music acts play music from a wide variety of famous artists that can span many decades.
Why should I book live music for my event?
Live music is a great way to add an extra special touch to any event or function. There is nothing quite like a live music act to bring an event to life. A great music group responds to the mood to deliver a fantastic entertainment. When you book live music you know you're hiring musicians that perfected their craft. They perform songs in such a way that will never be exactly the same again. This means every event with a live music act is completely unique for your special occasion.
There are many different music instruments you can book for an event, function or wedding party. The most common type of instrument across almost all music acts is the guitar. (Either acoustic or electric.) This is often accompanied by a vocalist. (The voice itself being an instrument too of course!) Sometimes the guitarist sings as well or includes a separate singer. Next we have percussion usually from a drummer using a kit. But, recently percussion has also been provided by a cajon which is a wooden acoustic box. Most music acts performing at events and functions may also have a keyboardist and a bass guitarist. There are other instruments which are great in a live music environment. For example violins, cellos and flutes are fantastic to get your garden party started. Whereas saxophone and trumpet can make for a big sound combined with other musicians.
Music hire questions
When you book live music it is important that you and the music act agree all the details relating to the event. This will need to cover a wide range of information. From when they are to arrive, what to wear and the music to play. It should also include cancellation and payment matters amongst many other factors. Some of the questions should ask them:
- How much space do you need?
- What are the power requirements?
- How much is your hire charge?
- How long will you play for?
- How many sets of music will you play?
- Do you perform lively sets?
- How many breaks will you have and for how long?
- Do you have valid Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) certificates?
- Do you have valid Public Liability Insurance (PLI)?
- What time will you arrive?
- What happens if I cancel your act?
It can be difficult to ensure you have covered everything. To make things easier you can download our Booking Engagement Agreement Form. This covers all these points and more to use when you book an act. Download here.
