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@carousels-band.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that The Carousels 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 Carousels 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 Carousels 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.

The Carousels also offer a brilliant live lounge-style acoustic set, this is the perfect addition to your drinks reception and can really help set the mood for a great celebration. As the musicians are already booked to perform in the evening, the price of this set represents excellent value when compared to hiring a separate band for your daytime entertainment - it can be as much as 50% cheaper than hiring an equivalent act.

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

The Carousels are based in the Hampshire area and are hired all across the U.K. including the South West such as Cotswolds, Somerset, Devon, Southampton, New Forest, Winchester, Bournemouth, Wiltshire, Bristol, Bath, Exeter, Cardiff, Cornwall, Dorset as well as South East including Portsmouth, Essex, London, Norfolk, Suffolk, Brighton, Reading and further afield including Cambridgeshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Worcestershire Midlands and further afield.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Mr and Mrs Horrocks
Wedding
Dear Carousels, Thank you for giving us the best wedding reception we've ever been to! From the very first song you enticed our guests onto the dance floor and kept it energised all night long. Our friends and family haven't stopped talking about our fabulous wedding. Thank you for being easy to talk to and providing the acoustic set in the afternoon. It felt like you were part of the whole wedding day and that familiarity carried on into the evening. Thank you for suggesting it, it really did help with the momentum from the day to the evening. I can't say enough, I'm buzzing with the memories.
