How long does a band play for?
Usually, a band can play either 2 x 1 hour sets, or 3 x 45 mins sets. Most of the time this is sufficient. Some can play longer for an agreed fee. We would be happy to discuss this.
Can we have a band that plays background music during the dinner/reception?
Many of our musicians can provide a cut down version of the band for an afternoon background jazz or pop set, either as a solo pianist, solo guitarist or a duo for example. If your chosen act doesn’t do this then we can provide you with an alternative.
What kind of band do you recommend for a wedding?
Generally speaking, many people book a band for a wedding that has a good variety of music to appeal to all ages. We have bands with wide-ranging repertoires based all around the country, so one of our party bands or jazz bands would be worth consideration. We can cater for a variety of themed weddings, as well as civil partnerships.
Some clients have a limited budget, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t provide you with an amazing and memorable performer. This is where our trained agents come in to assist you.
What kind of band do you recommend for a corporate function?
The requirements of a corporate function can be quite different from a wedding/party function. The Morris Agency has provided numerous acts to the corporate sector, such as entertainment for gala dinners, film premieres and product launches. We can fit around the theme of the evening and provide you with a number of eclectic and dynamic acts that will create a lasting impression, by complementing your event and enthralling your clients.
Just let us know what you have in mind, and we will provide it. We have a number of artists from Mexican Mariachi bands, Klezmer bands, tango bands and gypsy jazz musicians, through to party and jazz bands.
If you want to hire famous artists, we also have well established connections with several music industry managers and agents, and can provide you with quotes for celebrity performances.
Where are your bands based?
As we are a national agency, our acts are based all across the country. As the bands are constantly travelling around the UK, they are able to travel to your location and can sometimes work out more economical if they are playing near your event the night before. We are also able to supply you bands and acts that are based in your area, which is a consideration to keep the price down.
