“We were so glad that we booked The Flyaways. Not only were they really friendly, but their music was incredible. They created the perfect party atmosphere and our friends were going crazy on the dance floor. Exactly what we'd hoped for and a brilliant way to end the day.

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.

Wedding, Orchardleigh House Estate, Somerset
Wow… what a night you gave us! When we were looking for a band and we stumbled across you guys, we instantly fell in love with you…and on the night you were EVEN BETTER live - something we wouldn’t have thought possible after seeing your videos. All of our guests were raving about you on the night and the day after - you’re the first thing everyone mentioned when we spoke to our guests and you certainly were the highlight of our day! We cannot thank you enough for being so fantastic and giving us a night to remember. When you guys did the Eminem songs we all absolutely lost it - incredible. Thank you SO much for being awesome and we hope we get to see you again sometime - without doubt the best band we’ve ever encountered and by the comments of our guests, I think they all felt the same too. In fact, we’ve already had some guests ask us for your details for their upcoming weddings!

The Flyaways were sensational and we are so pleased we had them perform at our wedding. They just brought the whole dance floor to life and we have had so many amazing comments from guests about how fantastic they were.

I just wanted to say thank you so much to The Flyaways for our amazing wedding party on 20th July this year. It was incredible and so many people have said how great the guys were. Everyone was up dancing all night and it was exactly what we had in mind! We had so much fun. Corina (photographer) said it was the best wedding party ever. Thanks also for letting the little budding drummer have a go while you were setting up and for letting Chris have a go too! You were friendly, organised and went with the flow as well as keeping our party going until the end. Thanks again.
