Got a burning question? We’ve made a list of our most frequently asked questions right here. If you still can’t find the right answer, feel free to give us a call on 0800 564 2240 or email on We can’t wait to hear from you.

I am really keen to have some live music during my wedding ceremony - are you able to perform during the ceremony?

Absolutely! We regularly perform during wedding ceremonies and drinks receptions. We like to arrive and set up in time for when your guests start to arrive, we can then welcome them with some live music and then perform as required during your ceremony. We can re-set and perform during your drinks reception if required. The band can also perform during wedding breakfasts.

Can I book you as a string quarter without the beatboxer?

Yes, have a chat with the Tailored team and let them know your requirements and they'll be able to advise on a suitable option for you.

Do you take requests?

We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually a song during the ceremony. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the day.

How long do you take to set-up?

45 minutes.

What time do you play?

At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, to be performed as required over a 4 hour period.

What is your guide price based on?

Our guide price is based on us performing at a venue within 90 minutes of our base in London. We charge travel costs for venues further than 90 mins, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation.

Do you have your own equipment?

Yes – we travel self-contained with amplification.

Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?

Yes, our sound works fine with noise limiters.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?


How much space do you require?

Ideally around 2.5m x 5m.

How much power do you require?

1 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our basic set-up.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?

The act's standard rider is soft drinks unless they’re on site for longer than the standard 4 hours, where we will then request a meal be added too.

Can we see you play live before booking?

As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.

“The professionalism and quality of your set up was fantastic, you’ve set up a really wonderful business that I would be delighted to use again.”
