In this section we will try and answer any of the most commonly asked questions, but please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any other questions at all. We love chatting it all through with you!
Our base prices are shown above in the lineup section to give you a good idea. But for a definite price for your event we will need to know:
the wedding / corporate event / party location. We are London based, so travelling far will incur some extra cost.
some rough timings. Ideally what time we would need to be setup by, and roughly when our performance would be.
Do you travel?
Yes! You don't get to become one of the UK's best wedding bands without putting in the miles! We travel all over the UK and abroad, so let us know where your wedding or corporate event is taking place and we will work out the logistics for you.
Can We borrow a mic?
One of the many things that sets Hand Fulla Soul apart from other bands is the quality of our sound reinforcement (PA System). We always bring a dedicated sound engineer to run the mixing desk and make everything sound crystal clear.
If the logistics are such that we are completely setup in the same location that you need to use a microphone, then YES, we are happy to provide the microphone for you. However, if your speeches are in a different location to the band setup, or at time when we wouldn't be setup, there are still options. We can offer a small speeches PA package which includes:
1 x wireless microphone
2 x small powered speakers that can be placed appropriately.
Let us know when you get in touch if you are interested in this.
What's the Setup Time?
This is a bit of a variable one. We do like to do things properly here at HFS, so it's not quite as simple as 'rock up, plug in, and rock out' unfortunately! We always prefer not to rush if necessary because we know that the details are what makes each event perfect. In an ideal world we would have around 2 hours to get setup and sound checked, but we know that is not always possible. We would need a minimum setup time of 75 minutes.
Can I request a song?
YES! For weddings we will happily learn your first dance song free of charge. After that we recommend that you pick up to 10 songs from our extensive repertoire list that we will include in the set. We do say about 10 is a maximum because we know how to build a killer set, and which songs run well into others and how to build to a huge finish, so let us do what we do best using your preferences if possible!
Do I need a DJ?
Included in our standard quote is up to 120 minutes, finishing at or before 12am (midnight). The sets are usually grouped into 2 x 60 minute. We can split this differently if that will work best for your wedding or corporate event. It is possible to play for longer, so just let us know what you would like for a bespoke quotation.
We aren't just a wedding band, we are the full package! So included in every event we play is recorded playlist music. We will put this on when we're not playing so that there aren't any awkward silences. We have plenty of playlists for different occasions, but if you prefer to curate your own banging playlists we are always happy to plug in your device to our PA system.
However, if you want a full on DJ mixing and taking requests etc, then we do work regularly with several fantastic DJs. Just let us know and we can factor that in to your quote.
My venue has a sound limiter. Is that ok?
We ALWAYS want to put on the best show that we possibly can, and a sound limiter can really affect our ability to do that. Having said that, we have worked at countless venues with sound limiters and we always bring the house down whatever! If your venue does have a limiter, please do let us know in advance so we can prepare. Sometimes it will be necessary to use an electric drum kit to help bring the decibels down. Or another solution is one of our "sister bands" Quieter Handful or the Silent Disco Band. These lineups have both been setup to work along side tricky sound limiters.
