3 best options for DJ music when booking a live cover band

When I speak to prospective clients about their requirements, most end up choosing to book us, or any live band, because they love live music and want that buzz, interaction and atmosphere at their event that only a live act can create.

Many clients tell us that they have always been live music fans and knew from the early stages of their event planning that they wanted a live band to complete their night. It is also common, in my experience, to discover that recorded music has not factored into the entertainment planning. I’m always pleased to help here because despite having a live band, you always need recorded music for the time periods prior to, between and after the band’s live sets. Read more

In fact it’s almost a dead cert that they’ll make an appearance at a handful of gigs each year, in some cases almost every gig. They are great for weddings and parties and generally aiding the vocal get together of a large audience. Are they the coolest songs in the world? Probably not. Are they the most technically challenging and engaging to play? Not really. But here is the !daft! take on 10 songs every rock/pop party cover band should know and expect to play, if not for their own, then at least for the audience’s enjoyment. Which after all is slightly more important. Read more

What you need to know about sound limiters in wedding venues

Sound Limiters. What you need to know.

Ever heard the term “sound limiter”? Our wedding and party clients often ask us what one is and that’s only IF they have been told that their venue has one, or been knowledgeable enough to ask. Checking whether your wedding venue has a sound limiter is something you should do early in the planning process, you will be investing months organising your perfect day and spending thousands of pounds making sure every tiny detail is taken care of… but have you ensured that these electro-jobsworths aren’t sat there ready to cause unexpected havoc at your big day?
