, Wedding, Cambridgeshire

Fantastic band, Great night!

, Wedding, Berkshire

Great band! So glad we booked them for our wedding reception. They really helped us to make it a night to remember. Very professional and a good laugh. Book Contempo - You won’t regret it!

, Wedding, Hertfordshire

Contempo were a great choice for our wedding. They provided acoustic music for our afternoon drinks and it really set the mood. The evening show was very popular with our guests, the dance floor was full all night. I will recommend them to my friends.

Contempo have extensive experience of providing entertainment for private clients as well as corporate clients and the military. 

My venue has a sound limiter, is this a problem?
In a word, no! As long as we are forewarned and the limiter is not set to an unworkable decibel level (roughly anything below 90db is unworkable for our electric band) then it will be fine. To put it into context, wedding reception crowds generally have a base db level of around 70-80db. Most venues are open to being flexible about sound limiters as long as the act is compliant to their volume expectations.

Can I request songs?
We are happy to learn one special song for your event, for example a first dance. If you wish to request songs that aren’t in our repertoire on top of this, then there will be a small charge to cover rehearsal costs. It is generally better if you inform us of a couple of songs you definitely do/don’t want from our rep and let us craft a set list that we know will work for your guests.

How long does it take to set up?
Notwithstanding venue/event specific factors it generally takes us 1 hour to set up and sound check from the point of having access to the space. During this time we will need to make noise at gig level to ensure the sound is just right for your event. We understand that sometimes this will not be possible, don’t worry we are highly experienced professionals and we can work in nearly any conditions.

How much space do you need?
Our 4 piece electric band inclusive of speakers and lights takes up roughly 4 metres x 3 metres. We are flexible with the space we use but there must be plug points close by.

  • 2 x 45 Minutes
  • 2 x 60 Minutes

Set lengths available to tailor to your event. The Acoustic act offers 2 x 30 minute sets or a 1 hour set.
