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 motown world-class function band for hire, with DJ service set up, may take up to 90 minutes. 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 musician about the time of arrival. This will allow them to prepare for your event. This should ideally be before your guests or patrons arrive.

There are also musicians that when asked to perform across 3 hours will do that without a break! You can discuss and agree how long you want your musician to perform their music sets and break duration.

You may want particular songs performed at particular times or make announcements. Let the musicians know exactly what you would like to change or add.
