BIOLOGICAL wedding bookings

Our diary is now open for bookings for the 2019 wedding season!

So, if you need a functions band, think rock – think Biological!

DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS – WE HAVE SOME ANSWERS:

I want to book, what do I need to do?
Call or e-mail us for a quote. Once a price is agreed we will post you a contract. You will need to sign and date both copies, keep one and return the second to us, along with your deposit cheque which is normally for 10% of the full fee.

Does the price include your travel expenses?
The price we quote includes everything, from petrol, to accommodation if needed.

What payment methods can I use for my deposit?
You can pay the deposit either by a bank transfer, or by personal cheque.

What payment methods can I use to pay the final balance?
You can pay the balance in advance by bank transfer of personal cheque. Or on the night by personal cheque or cash.

If I pay on the day of the event when should I pay you?
It’s often easier for both parties if payment is made before the band plays or after the first set. The last thing you will want to worry about at the end of your event is paying everyone.

Will the band turn up on time?
Yes, the band always leave plenty of travel time to get to your event. We know it will be stressful enough for you without having to worry about that.

Will the band be professional on stage?
Yes, always. As we are all experienced musicians and this is our livelihood, we are always on our best behaviour! We will all be driving ourselves to your event as well, so we stick to soft drinks.

Can I use your microphone for speeches?
Yes, that’s not a problem as long as we know about it in advance so we can set up one for you.

How long does the band play for?
Our standard performance time is 3 x 45 minute sets. This is what all standard quotes are based on. If you would like something different, just ask and we will give you a quote.

Will you provide music whilst the band is not playing?
Yes, music will be provided from an iPod in between the live sets. It’s a very crowd pleasing playlist, with lots of well know pop and rock classics to keep the dance floor busy. If you are looking for music to be played during your meal or buffet we have a few more laidback playlists which will do the trick. Please feel free to ask for a track listing. If you would like to compile your own playlists on your own iPod, that is not a problem, bring it along and we can plug it in to our PA system.

Do I need to feed the band?
If possible. On a typical performance day most musicians leave home in the early afternoon and do not return home until the early hours of the following morning. Therefore, wherever possible soft drinks and a hot meal is appreciated.

Will the band play the first dance at our wedding?
Yes. We do however require one month’s notice of what the song will be so all of the musicians can learn it. Sometimes with certain songs, the recorded versions have full orchestral backings which are quite hard to reproduce with a 5 piece band, so therefore may be a better idea to play the original version from cd or iPod. But this is something we can discuss with you.

Do you play requests?
Yes. If there is one or two songs you particularly want played, as long as you give us at least one months notice so all the musicians can learn the material.

Can I choose the set list?
Part of our job as professional performing musicians is to know which songs work. You are welcome to choose songs from our repertoire list which you would like included and we will try to play as many of those requests as possible, but we need to know this at least one month in advance so the set list can be planned.

Does the band need a stage?
No. As long as there is an area we can fit comfortably in to.

Will the band supply their own sound equipment and lights?
Yes, all quotes are fully inclusive of a sound system and lighting. Our lights will not only light up the band but your dance floor as well.

What if the band does not turn up to my function?

We can assure you this will not happen, it never has yet. All of the Musicians that make up the band are professional and we have a reputation to uphold.

My venue has a sound limiter, is this ok?
Yes, a lot of venues have these now and we are able to control our sound levels
