Logistics & setting up
One of the main questions that we get asked is about the logistics of getting your band in, set up, and ready to go. Most bands will require between 60 and 90 minutes to get set up and ready from the point at which they have unobstructed access to the performance space in front of the beautiful picture window.
There is always a natural lull after dinner where guests are happy mingling, taking in the stunning surroundings, and in the summer this is the perfect time to get some sunset shots in the gorgeous grounds of the farm. This can be the perfect time for the band to load in, set up and sound check. Before you know it and are back from your pictures, the band is ready to go for your cake cutting and first dance.
If you are more pushed for time or condensing your day with a later ceremony, you may wish to consider an early arrival of the band so they are set and ready before you even enter your party space. This means that the band is set and ready to perform from the very moment you want them in the evening without the need for any turnaround. Depending on the band and your timings, there may be an additional fee for an earlier arrival, but that little extra can make the difference to your evening.
With both options, it is always best to talk it through with our team. Get In Touch and we can always help guide you through the day.
