Recent reviews of our Original Artists in Waltham Forest

“Marco and the saxophonist were brilliant. Not only they were punctual, the music was really really good, everyone had a great time as a result. Such nice people too, I highly recommend them and we would definitely book them again for future parties. Thank you so much for saving our party after our previous band dropped out last minute. ”

Delphine hired Marco & The Band for a Private event (available in Waltham Forest)

“I was so delighted that we booked Marco for my dad's 70th birthday party. He was absolutely brilliant! He was really responsive to messages, arrived exactly when promised, didn't need any help setting up- and his music was wonderful! It was a well chosen set, so appropriate to the audience, and it was such a pleasure to listen to someone who is clearly so talented, and loves sharing his talent with an audience. It was a great party, and having Marco, with his beautiful guitar playing and fantastic singing, elevated it, and made it a really special event that we are still talking about. Thank you Marco!”

FAQs about hiring Original Artists in Waltham Forest

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Can any original artist play my favourite song?

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

How much time do original artists take to set up?

Your original artist 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 original artist 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 original artists 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 original artists will already have a PAT inspection certificate for their musical equipment/PA system, which they can provide to your venue if they need it.
