GET IN TOUCH!:

From the start your enquiry will be dealt with by leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available on 0800 564 2240 / info@thamesmen-band.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND:

Once you have decided that The Thamesmen are the band for you Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the day and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit (£270 - £480 depending on the line-up and add-ons you go for) to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.

PLANNING:

In the lead up to the wedding you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the day. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, first dance, song requests for the disco or DJ, final payment details etc. All of the details will be recorded and sent to the band in one simple final confirmation email, so you can be sure nothing will get missed and everything discussed will happen as planned on the night.

ON THE NIGHT:

The Thamesmen will arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and pre-mixed disco (or a band member can DJ if you add this to your booking) and will perform 2 hours of live music (2 x 60 minute live sets). The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.

If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the band would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening. If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) the band could arrive while you are eating to get set up (they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches!) - it takes a minimum of 90 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.

A guide to a standard evening reception would be:

  • 17:30 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On
  • 20:00 - First Dance/First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for evening buffet)
  • 22:00 - Second Set (60 mins)
  • 23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close

Timings can be flexible to suit your needs. The Thamesmen’s standard price is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there is an additional charge.

The band are very happy to perform your choice of first dance for you as long as they have at least three weeks notice of the song choice.

The Thamesmen also offer a brilliant live lounge-style acoustic set, this is the perfect addition to your drinks reception and can really help set the mood for a great celebration. As the musicians are already booked to perform in the evening, the price of this set represents excellent value when compared to hiring a separate band for your daytime entertainment - it can be as much as 50% cheaper than hiring an equivalent act.

To discuss hiring The Thamesmen to perform at your wedding please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240, or email info@thamesmen-band.co.uk.

The Thamesmen are based in Woking and are available to hire for weddings in popular Surrey venues such as Great Fosters in Egham, Pennyhill Park in Bagshot, Farnham Castle, The Barn at Bury Court, Gate Street Barn in Bramley, Guildford Harbour Hotel, Millbridge Court nr Farnham, Oatlands Park Hotel - Weybridge, Woodland Park Hotel - Cobham and many more!

The Thamesmen band were fantastic, we had a huge amount of guests and the room we was in was extremely warm, it couldn't have been the easiest gig to play. But, we all loved the band, the music and the amazing atmosphere they created. Thank you for helping to make our day the BEST EVER.
Rachel Nicholson & Tom Burden
Wedding, Crown & Cushion, Camberley
The band were FANTASTIC! They exceeded all expectations, they kept everyone on the dance floor all night and even the venue staff were telling us how impressed they were by them as usually people start to disappear throughout the night but the floor never emptied! All our guests kept telling us how good they were and personally we were really impressed with their sound quality, and how tight and professional they were as musicians, the songs they played were so well done and some I enjoyed better than the original with some cheeky half-time sections. They even had the father of the groom dancing and we were reliably informed he hasn't danced in the 49 years he and his wife have been married! We can't thank them enough, lots of people were asking who they were and we won't hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs a band.
