Smoking Goats
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Smoking Goats were brilliant, I organised a formal dinner dance and they worked perfectly for the night. Discussions before the day were easy and we sorted out all details, song styles and the audience we would have. They came in plenty of time to set up and soundcheck and worked flexibly with us when there were delays on the night. A brilliant set, perfectly crafted for the audience, which really got people on the dance floor and in a great mood. Afterwards I got so much great feedback, the guests loved it. Very easy to work with, professional and with great sound and song choices, I would recommend them for any kind of function especially if you want to get people dancing. :) "

FAQs about hiring Alternative Bands in Windsor

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Can any alternative band play my favourite song?

Professional alternative bands will often take requests, but you will need to give them plenty of notice. Please also keep in mind that alternative bands may ask for an small additional fee to prepare songs that aren't already on their song list. You can view the alternative band's song list on their Encore profile.

How much time do alternative bands take to set up?

Your alternative band will usually arrive about an hour or so before their performance begins to set up and get settled before they start playing. To avoid any delays, make sure the performance space is ready for the alternative band prior to their arrival.

My venue has asked for the performer’s PLI & PAT inspection certificates. What are these?

PLI stands for Public Liability Insurance. This insurance covers damage to another person or their property (it is also known as third party insurance). As many of our alternative bands are members of the Musician's Union, they are already covered by PLI up to £10 million. PAT stands for portable appliance testing. Most of our alternative bands will already have a PAT inspection certificate for their musical equipment/PA system, which they can provide to your venue if they need it.
