FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I get a quote for the band please?

  • Yes, please email us and let us know when & where the event is, what type of event it is, how many people and a rough idea of timings, that’s it!

Will you fit in with our plan for the evening?

  • Yes, we’ll tailor our live sets as much as possible to fit your events timings. We provide a professional & reliable service to make it easy for you.

Can we come and see you before booking?

  • Yes. Often people we play for are happy for others to pop along discretely for 20mins at their gig so that you can see what we’re like, the exception is weddings of course. We also rehearse regularly in Sevenoaks, so you’d be welcome to pop along and listen to us play a few tunes for you.

How long do you play for?

  • Between 2 1/2 hrs to 3 1/2 hrs of live music depending on the type of event. We’ll usually play 2 x 1hr 15mins sets live ‘get them on their feet dancing’ music with a 30min disco set in between while the band take a break. For a wedding or corporate function we might play an additional 1hr live background music while evening guests arrive and people have drinks.

How long does it take you to set up/clear away?

  • Set up is 1hr 30mins and we can normally clear away in 45mins

What does the band need on the night?

  • A venue contact name to liaise with, two 13amp power sockets available and a space about 4m x 3m, 5m x 4m or more is better if possible please.

Uncle Bert is a Grade 8 spoons player & my sister has a great voice, can they join you for a song?

  • Yes! We’re very happy for people to join us for one or two songs and it normally goes down really well adding to the atmosphere!

I’m not sure if I want a live band or a DJ?

  • Have both! Jonah’s Wail have our own DJ for the times between live music to keep the party going, all within the price, so you don’t need to book anyone else unless you want to.

Do you have public liability insurance and is the bands gear safe?

  • Yes. We can email our liability insurance certificate to you if you need it and we are insured to £5million for public liability. All our gear is PAT tested once a year for electrical safety.

Do we have to provide a PA & Lighting for you?

  • No. We use our own professional high quality PA, mixing desk, lighting & have our own tame sound engineer too.
