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

We are a very flexible band and want to work with our clients to make it as easy as possible for them. We are aware that details can change leading up to an event, even a few days before.

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

We always provide music in between our sets however if you would like DJ music at the end depending on your finishing time there may be an extra cost.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up 1 to 1.5 hours before our performance. If we are performing in a venue with its own PA this will be quicker.

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

We are more than happy for you to choose songs from our setlist you would prefer us to play. However on the night we do take requests from guests as we like to keep it flexible to create the right atmosphere for your event.

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

Yes all of the equipment is included (PA & Lights)

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We can learn 3 songs of your choice for free and more than that we would request a £30 fee for the rehearsal time/space.

Absolutely brilliant band, have seen them before and loved them, but to have them playing at our own party was the perfect addition to an amazing night! We received soooo many compliments on how good they were. Would recommend to anyone.

The Manuals couldn't have been more perfect for my joint 30th and Dad's 70th birthday party. They had an extensive songlist to choose from that spanned decades to cater to music that every age would love. They had us up dancing from the first song to the last. Tereza has an incredible voice and was spot on with communication throughout the run up to, and on the night. Thank you so much for being the highlight of such a special evening. A night we, and our guests, will never forget! It was the best!!

’I hired in The Manuals for my wife’s sixtieth birthday party after them being recommended to me. An extremely likeable trio well versed in creating the kind of atmosphere where everyone can enjoy the occasion. Musically it was impeccable, and the band’s energy kept the party going. If you want your party/wedding to go with a swing, then hire them in. A really fun band to have play at any special event ‘’
