Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We have been playing with the same line-up for ten years and this translates to great on-stage chemistry and energy in the performance. We also have a vast repertoire of varied tunes to reflect the atmosphere of the party and read the crowd.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Hundreds of wedding venues across the country (Barns, hotels, tipis, etc) We know most of the main venues in the South and beyond and use this experience to make the setup and sound even more polished. We have also played abroad in Europe including Italy, France, Sweden and Ireland

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We have a wide range of influences from Metal to Jazz for our home listening, but for your party we are influenced by whatever suits the party. Bands we all agree on include The Killers, Foo Fighters and Queen.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

We were lucky enough to play for 20,000 people at a large fireworks event in London which was an amazing experience.

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

The singer will always be the same as you see in the video, apart from in the case of illness or unforeseen emergency. In the rare event this happens, we would ensure an experienced 'dep' who knows the band and songs well.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our usual line-up is 4-piece Bass, drums, guitar, keys with 3 vocals and trumpet! We can also offer a second guitarist to give us more flexibility and a fuller sound, and/or a female vocalist.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We are flexible with timings, and know events often differ from what is planned. We can discuss on the day as needed, but may need to check the restrictions from your venue.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Happy to provide a DJ service between sets as part of your booking up to the agreed finish time. We are happy to take requests and will do our best to fit them in.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually require around an hour to setup, depending on the ease of access. Once the PA is up we can play DJ music, and would ideally have some time to soundcheck (around 10 mins)

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

We are happy for your to choose your likes or dislikes from our large repertoire list. We'll then add in as many of your favourites as possible, including crowd pleasers from our experience 500+ gigs

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes our quote includes all our equipment, including PA system and lights for the stage and dance floor. You are also welcome to use a microphone for announcements.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We are happy to learn one song for free as part of your booking, potentially for first dance if it is for a Wedding. If you want us to learn more than one extra song there is a charge of £20 per song to cover rehearsal time.

Major Major played at our wedding and they were superb! Took the time to come chat with us and congratulate us during intervals and played a wide range of music so that everyone was up on the dance floor! I'd recommend them to anyone, they were fantastic! Thank you for making our day the best ever! Alex & Emily Mulvin

Major Major were absolutely amazing. I had so many people either tell me on the evening or over the next few days that they were the best wedding band they had ever heard. They learnt TWO songs just for us and all of our guests were blown away by their professionalism. If you are hiring a band, stop looking. These are the guys you want and need. 11/10. 6*. A++.

We had the band for my partners 40th and we couldn’t have been more delighted! The set-up was seamless, they are complete pros and they asked for very little (basic food and drinks). I hadn’t been to a party before where everyone was on the dance floor from the very first song (to the very last song!) - until now! The boys are SO fantastic, they learned my partners favourite song to play for us, they took onboard the type of music we liked and they read the room so well. We knew we loved them, but the true test for us was how our guests felt - we had four people ask for their contact details after our party; that says it all.
