Save time and money when you hire local singers
See below for answers to many of the most common band hire questions:
It’s easy to make a booking. Simply complete the band hire enquiry form here. Provide some information about the type of booking you are planning and let us do all the work! We only need a few essential bits of information. These include the music type you would prefer to hear and the event location. If you are not sure of the timings you can provide us with the rough timings. Such as when your guests will be arriving and when the event will finish. If you know about the space you have for the band this might help choosing the act type. For example, if it is a small marquee solo to 4 piece acts might suit better. If you want more control, you can use the Additional Details section for more information.
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 you hire a local singer in Rutland within your price range),
and any other info 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 find you some great classic vintage singers to get the night swinging!).
Once completed, press the ‘Set us to work!’ button and we’ll search our network for the right bands area which match your enquiry. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 or you can take control and get exactly the music you need when you hire a local singer in Rutland.
The time it takes for a music group to set-up also varies depending on the amount of musicians involved. A solo violinist can be ready in just a few minutes. Whereas 10-piece party bands, tribute bands, function and wedding bands 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 on the time of arrival which 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 booking, what do I do?
When you hire a local singer in Rutland and need to cancel this is best done directly with the chosen act as soon as possible. Simply contact the act 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 bands with as much notice as possible. As without it, the band will not be able to schedule another performance on the cancellation date leading to a loss of earnings.
When you discuss the terms and conditions of the engagement with your band please discuss what is to happen if a cancellation occurs. 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 the act and 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.
If a band cancels you will need to find a replacement band as soon as possible. Firstly, you should enter another enquiry form to hire a local singer in Rutland. So we can help you as we have many party bands, tribute bands, wedding bands and local singer in Rutland available at last minute. Secondly you need to decide the impact of the cancellation. If the cancellation has not allowed enough time for a replacement to be found what your losses may be. This should then be checked with your band booking agreement agreed before booking. You can download a live music hire Engagement Agreement document to use here.
Can I see the bands performing live before hiring?

Many cover bands, tribute bands, function and wedding bands have websites which they can direct you to. Which 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 pr
