Frequently asked questions

What is a party band?

A party band is a live musical group specifically designed to entertain and energise audiences at social events and parties. Unlike traditional bands, their repertoire focuses on upbeat, danceable music spanning various genres, ensuring a lively atmosphere. Party bands often perform popular hits, engaging the crowd with interactive performances to get your guests dancing and keep the dance floor packed. Their goal is to create a fun and celebratory ambience, making them a popular choice for weddings, corporate events, and christmas parties.

How much space does a party band need?

A minimum of 5 x 3 metres would be required for a six-piece band. Remember that a live party band will have to fit the PA, monitors, lighting, guitar amps, drums, and keyboards in addition to the people.

How long will the party band play for?

Generally, professional party bands perform two 1-hour sets or three 40-minute sets, with a 15- to 30-minute break in between. Your band will also require around one hour for setup and soundcheck.

How far in advance should I book?

The best time to book is as soon as possible, especially if you have special musical requests, but Encore handles last-minute bookings all the time and can easily find a function band if you need one quickly.

Do I have to pay for my band's travel?

Hiring a band for a party with Encore is easy since all fees (travel, VAT, and other expenses) are included in the quote. Besides the Basic Protection package (full refund in the unlikely event that a musician cancels), Encore Cover is the only additional add-on fee we offer. As well as your basic protection (full refund in the unlikely event of a musician cancellation), you'll get tailored replacement searches, out-of-hours support, and if the replacement act costs more than the original musician booked, we'll pay for it. As such, you can have complete peace of mind you will have the perfect entertainment for your event. We always recommend considering local bands first because fees will be lower the closer they are to your chosen venue.

Does my party band need insurance?

The venue might require that your band has PLI (Public Liability Insurance). Your PLI protects another person's or their property from damage during your event. All of Encore's party bands with PLI will have a badge on their profile, so it's easy to find and book them.
