FAQs about hiring Drummers in Argyll And Bute

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Will a drummer bring their drums?

When you hire a drummer, the specific equipment you need to provide will depend on the event and venue. For example, some venues which often have live music will be able to provide most of the equipment a drummer will need but for weddings, a drummer will usually bring everything. Always worth double-checking with the drummer beforehand to avoid any last-minute surprises on the day.

How long do drummers usually perform?

It varies from event to event, but drummers typically perform two 45-minute sets. You can always negotiate the set time with the drummer if you’d like them to play for longer or shorter.

How long does it take for a drummer to set up and sound check?

Drummers will take around 20-30 minutes to set up a standard drumkit, but for more elaborate setups (for high-end events for example), it might take up to 45 minutes to set up. Always clarify set-up and sound check times with the musician beforehand to ensure your event flows smoothly.

How much space do drummers need?

The amount of space a drummer needs depends on the size of their kit, however, as a general rule of thumb, drummers need at least 8 feet by 8 feet of space - this will give them enough room to set up their kit and play comfortably.

What genres do drummers usually play?

At Encore, our drummers for hire are often very versatile and can play a wide range of genres, including but not limited to, rock, pop, jazz, blues, metal, and funk. If unsure, always check their song lists on their profiles or get in touch with one of our experts who can help you in finding the perfect drummer for your event.
