We had a great night, and everyone enjoyed the band, they were brilliant and very attentive to our requirements in terms of what sort of music our clientele enjoy etc. Helen has a fantastic voice and we have received lots of lovely comments about her performance. We can't wait to invite her and the band back again.

I booked Wired for the 3rd time in less than 12 months to host the entertainment for our Xmas party nights at Nailcote Manor. Once again Wired brought the party. They tailored there set perfectly to suit the broad range of our guests and kept the dance floor full from start to finish. We have more bookings for the band throughout 2024 and can't wait to welcome them back

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Electrifying every stage: W!RED band's journey from weddings to corporate galas, hotels, public music venues, MOD events, cruises, festivals and holiday parks.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We thrive on a broad set of influences. W!RED's varied taste spans funk, soul, disco, rock, pop, and dance. Our diverse influences create sets that keep the dance floor alive all night, catering to every musical taste.

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

We love every gig, from public events to intimate weddings. Our focus is on fun, and a standout was a raucous night in a large marquee for a Horse and Jockey Club - probably our largest, wildest crowd under one tent!

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

Yes, the singer in the video will be the same performer at your event. We value our reputation highly, ensuring all our musicians are exceptional. We maintain high standards, guaranteeing a skilled, harmonious performance.

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes, we have the option of adding a male vocalist/guitarist to our line-up.

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

We are always flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If the timings change, just let us know.

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

Yes, and we are pleased to offer it at no additional cost. Whilst we don't provide a manned DJ service, we can arrange a DJ for your event if you wish.

How much time do you need to set up?

Typically, our setup takes 1 to 2 hours. Once the PA system is operational, we offer a complimentary playlist service to create the perfect ambience. This not only sets the tone for the event but also primes your guests for the exciting live performance that awaits them.

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

We engage in a collaborative process with our clients to custom-tailor your set lists as per your requests. Utilising our experience, we expertly curate a set that aligns with the unique atmosphere and theme of your event. Our goal is to ensure that the music resonates with your special occasion.

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

Yes, our PA, lighting system and sound engineer are included in your quote. We ideally need a 4m by 4m performance area.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We are more than happy to learn a special song just for you for a small additional fee. All we ask is for a bit of time to perfect it.
