Frequently asked questions

Can any acoustic band play my favourite song?

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

How much time do acoustic bands take to set up?

Your acoustic 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 acoustic band prior to their arrival.

My venue has asked for the performer’s PLI & PAT (Test & Tag) 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). Most of our acoustic 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.
