Whether a traditional church wedding, civil ceremony, handfasting or civil partnership, it is always a pleasure and an honour to be asked to provide the music to celebrate the union.
And as every marriage is different - of course each wedding reception is different. The Firedance Roadshow will work with you to ensure that your special day is a day to remember - for all the right reasons.
As well as the music for the evening reception, I can provide background music (inc. classical) for the meal, and provide cordless microphones for you to use for the wedding speeches.
I am always aware that is it your event, not mine - I can work with you or your planner to ensure that the music is the music that you and your guests want to hear, appropriate to the occasion --- and at an appropriate volume level. I will not play music that you have specifically asked me not to play!
I can use my years of experience to provide a good mix from the genres you prefer - or can work with you, either via email, phone or with a personal visit if required (and practical for distance!) to create a playlist of bands and/or tracks that you would like played. This service is provided free of charge for bookings.
[ Note: with playlists, the maximum number of songs I can play in a typical 4-hour reception is around 60 - and there will always be requests on the night! ]
A traditional part of any wedding celebration, I will ensure that I have the song (or songs) you want for your first dance. Remember, it is your celebration, anything is permissable...
... View these two videos on YouTube --> HERE and --> HERE for examples!
I will dress according to your wishes and the nature of the event - I can wear black tie if the occasion demands it, or more usually a dark shirt and dress trousers. I will not perform wearing a t-shirt and jeans at a formal wedding!
EQUIPMENT AND DOCUMENTATION
All equipment is of professional quality and is safety (PAT) tested; all speakers and lights are on heavy-duty stands where applicable, and all cables and equipment boxes are tidied away out of sight. All cables are securely taped to the floor where necessary.
The FDR carries its own Public Liability Insurance, plus I have my own Public Performance Licence - the latter being a legal requirement for an outdoor / marquee event. PLI, PAT and PPL documentation can be inspected at each and every gig, or beforehand if required by the venue / organisers / local council.
The price depends upon how long you want me there for and what service(s) you wish me to provide - but I won't charge you extra for travel or early setup, for example.
Please call or email me to discuss your special day and I will give you a competitive price, which will be fully invoiced and receipted...
... but before closing this site and picking up the phone to book that DJ who has quoted you 50 quid, think about the possibility that booking the cheapest DJ you can find for one of the biggest days of your life could make your wedding day memorable - for all the wrong reasons! The guests at your wedding will remember the evening entertainment just as much as how beautiful the bride looked - and more so if the DJ and disco is of poor quality!
£50 would hire you just one set of my lights or just one set of speakers from a disco hire shop... and a 'bedroom DJ' who turns up with a Woolworths disco ball, 100 watt amp and four hours of Drum & Bass may not go down too well with the rest of the family!
