The Smokin' Jackets Function Band FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Live band and disco in one package

Q: Could you give me a quote to appear at my function?

A: We are very competitively priced. Please give Sean a call to discuss on (0)7871 321804 .

Q: Can we come to see the band before booking?

A: Certainly - please contact us to arrange. Please be aware that we don?t generally play in public places like pubs etc, however we may be able to arrange for you to come to one of our private functions or alternatively it is possible to see us in rehearsal in a studio near Colchester.

Q: Can you change which songs you play to cater for different audiences?

A: Yes we will judge that as we go by audience response. As we play such a range of material everyone should enjoy themselves.

Q: How long do the band play for?

A: Usually for about two and a half hours, split into either two or three sets. We can adjust this to fit the occasion. We also supply music before the bands set and music for dancing in between the two sets.

Q: How would you structure the night in terms of when to have Band or Disco?

A: A typical arrangement might be Background music from 8:00pm, 8:30 - 9:30 Bands 1st set, 9:30 - 10:30 music for dancing from a laptop, and ending the night with the Bands 2nd set 10:30 - 12:00. As always any timings are flexible to fit in with your arrangements.

Q: How much space does the band need to set up in?

A: 7m x 3.5m should be adequate for the Band. If a marquee is involved, a flat surface is required (i.e. not on the same surface as the tables). Typically on a separate flat "stage" area, or if necessary, on part of the dance floor.

Q: Will it be possible to use your P.A and a microphone for announcements etc?

A: No problem, as soon as we are set up and sound checked (usually about 1hr) we are happy to let you use the P.A.

Q: Any other requirements?

A: Power sockets. A dressing area if possible, some food and drink would be gratefully received.
