GET IN TOUCH!

From the start your enquiry will be dealt with by leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available on 0800 564 2240 / info@flyaways-band.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that The Flyaways are the band for you, Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the day and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.

PLANNING

In the lead up to the wedding you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the day. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, first dance, song requests for the disco or DJ, final payment details etc. All of the details will be recorded and sent to the band in one simple final confirmation email, so you can be sure nothing will get missed and everything discussed will happen as planned on the night.

ON THE NIGHT

The Flyaways will arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and pre-mixed disco (or a band member can DJ if you add this to your booking) and will perform 2 hours of live music (2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets). The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.

If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the band would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening. If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) the band could arrive while you are eating to get set up (they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches!) - it takes a minimum of 90 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.

A guide to a standard evening reception would be:

  • 17:30 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On
  • 20:00 - First Dance/First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for evening buffet)
  • 22:00 - Second Set (60 mins)
  • 23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close

Timings are flexible to suit your needs and live sets can be split 3 x 40 mins if you prefer.The standard price for The Flyaways is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there is an additional charge.

The band are very happy to perform your choice of first dance for you as long as they have at least three weeks notice of the song choice.

To discuss hiring The Flyaways to perform at your wedding please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@flyaways-band.co.uk.

The Flyaways are based in the London area, and are wedding bandi and many more locations throughout the U.K.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Ben & Jenny
Wedding, Abbey Sculpture Gallery, Milton Keynes
We wanted to get in touch to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding and for providing the best set we could have hoped for. The music was incredible and each of you were friendly and really lived up to our expectations. We searched long and hard for a band that we liked and really struggled so we will be recommending you to everyone we know - we were so impressed. We loved that you blended in the music from our DJ between your sets to create a seamless transition - especially when you started playing Prince! The musical variety was really good and the quality was excellent. We felt like were at a proper gig with a really top quality band. You were great at interacting with our guests and we've had nothing but positive feedback from everyone in attendance. Thank you again - we will definitely be coming to see you play live the next time you're in London to say hello and re-live a truly memorable night!
