Booking Our Band Q & A

How do I make a booking?

Enquire here after which we can issue a Booking Agreement.

How long do you play for?

We typically play for 2 x 45 minute sets or 1 x 75 minute set.  We can be flexible to suit your event and work around any other proceedings - we are happy to adapt to fit your requirements!

What size band should I have for my event?

Our 4 piece live band suits most parties with dancing and where there isn't a volume limit. Our 2 piece duo suits smaller venues, tighter budgets and venues with volume restrictions.

What's the difference between the full band and the duo?

Our duo option has two singing musicians playing guitar and keyboards/percussion backed with professionally recorded supplemental drums and instruments to create a full band sound.

How long does set-up take?

Equipment set-up takes 1 hour from loading into the venue. We can arrange the best time to arrive to allow for set up and sound-checked before your guests come into the room where possible.

How much space do you require?

Minimum 5m x 3m stage area for our 4 piece band, or 3m x 2m for our duo. This allows enough space for the instruments, amps and musicians to perform. A stage with dance-floor area in front would be ideal though not essential.

Do we need to supply anything?

Just a changing area, light refreshments and vehicle parking please. We can supply all sound, lighting and musical equipment. We'll need to plug into 2 x standard 240v/13 amp electrical sockets.

Can you perform without amplification?

Amplification is usually needed for your guests to hear us properly. If the venue has noise concerns we recommend our duo option where we can adjust our overall volume as required.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and P.A.T. certificates?

Yes we are fully compliant - your venue may need to view these - copies are available on request.

Can you perform outdoors?

We can play outside only if there is adequate cover and protection against wind and rain as we use electrical equipment which is easily damaged. It is at the discretion of the musicians on the day whether or not it is safe to do so. 

How far do you travel?

Most bookings are around the North of England, with the occasional trip further afield.

What songs do you perform?

Please view our repertoire lists at

Can we hear you play?

Yes - there are a selection of audio clips and video clips here on our website. Most of our bookings are private events though it may be possible to arrange to see us by request depending on what's coming up.

What value do The Maestros bring?

As well as being instrumentalists, our band members are singers in their own right. Multi-tasking musicians means you're not paying for extra members.

Can we use your microphone for speeches or announcements?

Yes, just let us know your requirements in advance. For speeches or music earlier in the day, ask about our add-on option of microphone/speaker hire.

Do you have background music during the band breaks?

Yes we can keep the music going from our device or yours. You can have background playlist music through our speakers once we're all set up. We'll also look after interval music and have upbeat playlist music after the band finishes at the end of the night, so your guests can stay on the dance-floor a little while longer.

Do you offer a DJ service?

Yes, ask about our add-on DJ disco service with requests and/or bespoke track list, run by a band member with Macbook/controller. 

Have you ever cancelled a booking?

No, never. We're proud of our 20 year track record thanks to a reserve pool of back-up musicians and singers of the highest calibre in case of sickness or the unforeseen.

Word of Warning! 

The difference between booking a professional outfit vs. an amateur one can make or break your event! 

Will your guests appreciate -
- microphone feedback screeching
- out of tune, non-engaging, bored look
- too loud, distorted, singing drowned out
- long gaps in-between songs
- miscommunication, late arrival or no show
- empty dance-floor, guests leaving early
- no insurance, safety PLI, PAT certificates

When you book a professional act you can expect all the important things to be taken care of, leaving you to get on with the other things...

Your event will be remembered by its entertainment. Choose well and you can take the credit later!
