Function band
Braintree
Public liability insurance of £1 million

We are an accomplished, experienced, and versatile Weddings & Events Band, pleasing clients and their guests since 2015. However, our story as a musical group began much earlier, listening to songs together and coming up with our own variations to practice and perform. We knew our lives would be dedicated to music and performing for live audiences, and we couldn’t be happier to make a career out of playing a variety of musical styles and perfecting our event performances. The Band Consists of :- Lead Vocals Guitar/Backing Vocals Keyboards/Backing Vocals Bass Guitar Drums Own PA and Lighting

The Sound Collective is a truly fantastic band. I knew they would be very very good because of all the reviews I'd read about them. But they were EVEN BETTER! So professional, so much energy and enthusiasm. I can see other people have already said it, but they really did set the dance floor alight. EVERYBODY was dancing all night long. Amazing ... truly ... I don't have the words. Thank you so much guys. We will DEFINITELY be seeing you again! ​ Becky Stephens

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

As we have seen over the years especially with weddings they can never run on time, we are aware of this just keep us updated.

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

Yes no problem. Nothing worse when you have so much to do, in organising the day. We make it easy for you by supplying the DJ. One less thing to worry about.

How much time do you need to set up?

Up to 90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.

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

We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.

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

Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in. ​
