Setting up time is based on the number of musicians involved. A solo acoustic musician can be ready within 30 minutes. A singer or small band can take up to an hour. Whereas a 10-piece function band for hire, with DJ service set up, may take up to 90 minutes or more. The time needed is to position the musicians on stage, prepare the equipment and sound-check.

If this is a special event with particular timings, they may need to arrive earlier. It is best to agree with the professional about the time of arrival. This will allow them to prepare for your event. This should ideally be before your guests or patrons arrive.
