Here are a few useful tips to follow when hiring a band.
Ensure the band is available on the date you require.
Indicate the type of function you are planning.
Ask has the band entertained at this type of function or a similar one previously.
Be realistic on times - 1-2 hrs for a set is normal.
Agree a fee for the performance.
Discuss the dress code required.
A simple written classification of the points agreed is a good idea with each party holding a copy.
Confirm all details by phone 1 week prior to the date.
Relax and have a great time!
