Firework helped to turn our wedding into the most fantastic party we could ever have hoped for. They brought all the right songs for a diverse audience and all of our guests spent the night on their feet! From the moment we booked Firework for our wedding party they made the entire process seamless, offering several set list options, flexibility around timings and advice as to how to get the crowd moving (even liaising directly with our friend who had offered to DJ at the end of the night to prevent duplications) As a singer myself, I was keen to join the band to dedicate a song to my new husband, and after having sent the song over to the band they learned it to perfection so that I could perform with them without rehearsal and without a hitch. All of our friends and family were blown away by the professionalism, talent and flair of the band - I would recommend Firework for any occasion and will certainly book a return performance for our next party!

Can you play our first dance?
FIREWORK are happy to learn your first dance to perform live as long as you can provide us with an audio recording of the song a minimum of one month before the event. Alternatively we can play the audio recording of the song through our PA speakers, just email us the MP3 before the date or give us a CD/iPod/Mp3 player on the day and we shall make it happen.
Can you do any other requests?
We have an large selection of material to choose from, all of which has been decided upon after careful consideration using many years of experience to provide the best show for your event. If there is anything on our song list that you would particularly like us to play (or like us NOT to play) then let us know at least a month before your event so we have the opportunity to brush up on anything we may not have played for a while. Also if you have a request for a song that is not on the list then get in contact as soon as possible as we may already know it, or may be able to learn it in time for your event.
Can you provide a DJ?
We can provide pre-recorded background and/or party music before, between and after the sets if required, but if that is not sufficient for your event, and you want a proper DJ who can mix between tracks, react specifically to your audience with their choice of songs, and take requests; then we work with a number of professional DJ’s that we can recommend and even contract as part of your package.
How long does it take the band to set up?
We usually ask for a minimum of 90 mins access to the venue. If for example, we are required to be set-up by 7.30pm, we will require access to the venue (specifically the stage or performance area) by 6pm at the latest. For some venues, loading in and out can be difficult and we may require longer, also big events will require more time to set up due to the amount of equipment required. Within our setting up time, we will require time to 'soundcheck'. This is to help us set the equipment to perform at it's best for you and your guests. This process involves us playing at performance sound levels and is essential, so please ensure that staff and others in the venue are aware that this is necessary.
How much space do the band need?
FIREWORK have squeezed into some tight spots before but we have found that, as a minimum, an area of 16ft/5m in width and 10ft/3m in depth will ensure the best performance from the band. If you are having an additional DJ then additional space will be required.
What electricity supply do the band need?
We require a 32A single-phase supply provided by mains power or regulated generator (if the venue is a marquee for example), terminating in a minimum of 4x13A sockets located at the stage area. This supply must be independent of other supplies to kitchen areas etc. If it is a domestic property or venue without a 32A single phase, then we would require feeds from 2 separate 20A phases to the stage area, terminating in this case with a minimum of 2x13A sockets per feed.
Do I need to provide anything else to the band?
A hot meal (or access to the event buffet) should be provided to the band and sound crew, along with soft drinks. If you wish to offer the band additional beverages of any kind, they would be accepted most welcomely. If the band need to be set up early in the day then they may also require lunch. If this cannot be provided then an appropriate charge may be added to the balance to enable us to provide our own refreshments. We will also require a secure dressing room with access to a mirror.
A performance is often a complete day’s work for the crew and musicians when account is taken for travel time, setting up/breaking down the equipment, and performing. If it is necessary to consume a meal outside of the venue and/or at the band’s expense. We will need to pass the cost on to you. You will invariably find it more ‘cost effective’ to ask your caterer to provide subsistence than for us to source it externally. We will wear stage clothing for your performance, as we want to look great for you and your guests. Without a secure changing area, we will need to take our clothes and other valuables to the stage with us - which is cumbersome, untidy, and not at all elegant or indeed professional.
What happens if a member of the band cannot do the event?
In the event of an band member being unable to attend the booking (through illness etc) then we have a large pool of professional “deps” that we can call upon to stand in on the day who know all of the material to an equally high standard as the normal band member, thus ensuring you will not notice any difference in the quality of the band’s performance.
Where can I see the band perform live?
Virtually all of our engagements are at private or corporate events, though we do perform ‘public gigs’ on rare occasions. You can contact us to find out if and when the band are playing in your area, but be aware that we cannot hold a date pending you seeing the band perform live.
Would the band perform outside the UK?
FIREWORK have performed across the UK and Europe and are available on a worldwide basis. We are used to dealing with agents and venues across Europe and have all the necessary information required to complete a engagement abroad.
- FIREWORK usually perform up to 2 hours worth of material, often split into 2 or 3 sets (commonly, 2 x 60 minute OR 3 x 40 minute sets).
Please Note: The fees indicated below are approximate and based on a central location for each county. They are intended to provide a rough guide only and exact quotes can only be given once the date and exact location of your event have been provided.
