BUSKING BANDS | BEST ROAMING BANDS FOR HIRE

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

BOOK BUSKING STYLE BANDS FOR ANY OCCASION…

But not at busking prices!

We have loads of busking style bands for weddings and events. A roaming band performing acoustic walkabout songs can be a perfect addition to your event.

It is important to note that the bands are not the average buskers that you might see in London or other major cities. These guys are professional full time musicians and although their prices are more competitive than some amplified acts, they are still getting bookings for weddings and events from a min £600

Why are Busking roaming acts so good?

There are lots of benefits to booking a roaming acoustic busking style band. With the increasing sound restrictions on live music in wedding and corporate venues, bands need to adapt to the needs of the location and busking acts do just that. They can be amplified and stationary if needed but can also be totally unplugged and work from table to table.

FIND A MUSICIAN

Can the bands take requests?

Because or acts are so versatile, they have a huge repertoire and can often take requests from the audience there and then. It’s a live jukebox .. try and catch them out!

LOCAL WEDDING BAND HIRE : KENT LOCAL BAND HIRE GUIDE

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

NEED HELP HIRING A LOCAL BAND IN KENT OR SOUTH EAST?

We understand what it is like to face the decision on hiring a band locally. So, our team over at the Kent Band Agency have come up with a fabulous guide for helping you understand what is involved.

Planning a wedding is a serious affair and too many people tend to take it like it is some sort of a corporate meeting. When logistics of the wedding become the main theme, you might just want to step back and reconsider the entire thing. After all, while it’s really easy to get lost in the details of who sits where and from where to get flowers and how to synchronise the booking of the venue with the time when most guests are available, it only means your wedding will run like a well-oiled machine, which is anything but memorable. –
