Very professional and friendly group of guys. Arrived on time and setup in no time. Their system was great for the venue, Their setlist was fantastic with a great show of talent, signing and playing. The breaks in their set accompanied with DJ music was fantastic as this was done in such a way that it enabled a quieter periods during the evening but still did not detract or bring the energy of the evening down. Both sets were well performed and full range of great songs. We would highly recommend this band.

The band was superb. We had amazing feedback from our guests saying how good they were. Bride and groom were so pleased with their version of 'Can You Feel The Love' by Rudimental for the first dance. It was awesome!!! My only complaint, I was so tired from all the dancing!!! I did not stop!

The band were great. A pleasure to deal with, pleasant to have around both before and after their set, and most important of all, fantastic performers. They moved easily between different styles, but played all of them with conviction, doing their best to inhabit each track. Discerning ears among the guests commented on how tight the band was and it was great that they were able to crank up the pace for the second set as the guests became livelier. Everyone was up and dancing for the full final hour, which speaks for itself. Thanks.

We were very impressed with the band. The performance was outstanding and the dance floor kept busy, even though a lot of our friends don't dance! They were very accommodating with our song requests and played a great mix of music for guests of all ages. Everyone had a great time and when we speak to people who were at our wedding everyone comments on how good the band were. We had an iPad playlist service between sets and all of our requests were included, even though we changed our 1st dance song at 24 hours' notice! The band were very professional, friendly and easy to deal with which is very important on a day that we had a lot going on. We would definitely recommend Sauce for any events you are planning. Sam at Warble made the booking process really easy and was on hand to answer any questions we had really quickly. We would definitely recommend Warble Entertainment to others looking to book entertainment for their event.

Sauce were lively and energetic from the word go; they had everyone dancing and read their audience brilliantly. They were smart and professional and were also a really lovely and relaxed bunch of guys. I honestly can’t praise them enough. They made the evening for us and we're still getting comments about how good they were now!!


, Wedding, Manchester
5/5

The band were nothing short of fantastic. They were easily obtainable with my (tons) of questions and requests. Once at the wedding the set they played was the exact mix bag of genre's we asked for and they played them all superbly. I kept being told all night by our wedding guests how good they sounded. They are a very chilled easy going bunch of guys which, believe me on an already stressful wedding day is certainly whats needed!

Hi Jennie, Sorry for the delay in replying to you email. Just got back from honeymoon a few days ago. I just wanted to let you know that yes, Warble were very quick to respond and we felt that the booking process was easy and helpful. On booking we dealt with friendly staff who where happy to suggest bands that might be suitable. As for the band, they had an amazing sound - really friendly guys our guests loved dancing to them! Really good mix of songs. Hope this helps.

Hi Tracey, Sauce played at my wedding at Mottram Hall. They were the best! I would recommend the guys to anybody! I'm 30 next year and hopefully will have the guys again as they were very professional and I want to say huge thank you to you all for ending our wedding with the best variety of music from the 60s up till now. Along with the DJ that came with them they kept everyone dancing all night, Just fantastic! All our love.

We hired Sauce for our wedding in the Lake District and where delighted we did. They where extremely professional, set up and ready to go as soon as we arrived to the evening venue without us even knowing they had arrived. They played a great selection of songs that kept everyone happy and dancing all night, also the DJ that came with them was great too. Our guests are still talking about the 'gig' 6 months later. Very approachable bunch of lads and we would definitely recommend them to everyone and we will be using them again in future as soon as we think of an excuse for another party!

Why should I book Sauce?
With over 1000 gigs and 10 years of playing experience as a band we understand what it takes to make every type of event a success. We have performed across the UK and Europe to all kinds of audiences and at all types of venues and are one of the busiest bands in the country.

All this experience gives us an eye for detail that other bands may miss. We pride ourselves on every aspect of what we do from the booking process right through to the performance on the night. We have an extensive repertoire that will keep the dance floor full which is all played and performed through the highest quality equipment available.

What type of events do Sauce play?
Sauce have played at all types of events from Weddings to Birthday Parties, Fundraisers, Award Ceremonies, Christmas Parties, Charity Events, Civil Partnerships, House Parties and even a Bar Mitzvah. If you have a special or unusual event please do not hesitate to contact us.

What type/size venues are you able to play at?
Sauce can perform at any type / size venue you require, whether this a house party, night club, manor house or a football stadium we can accommodate you.

What types of music can you perform?
Sauce can perform music from all decades (50s – 00s) and across all genres from Soul to Motown, Rock, Reggae, funk and disco through to the latest chart hits. Our repertoire has in excess of 100 songs and growing and we are constantly updating this with new material. 

Where will you travel to?
Whether it’s in the UK, Europe or International Sauce will be happy to perform at your event.

What time do you start and finish?
Our standard arrival time is 6pm and the band to be set up for 7.30pm. Start times are flexible as they depend on the client’s itinerary for the evening and finish times are generally midnight. If you require an early start / late finish time this is not a problem but an additional fee may be charged.

How long do you play for?
There are three options when booking Sauce , 2 x 60 minute sets, 3 x 40 minute sets or 2 x 45 minute sets. If you have other timings in mind please discuss this at the time of your enquiry.

How long do you take to set up?
The maximum time required for us to set up is 1hr 30mins. This can be done quicker as long as we have easy access to the venue (i.e. ground floor room and vehicle access close to the venue). On average Sauce  would require a minimum of 1 hour to complete a good set up / sound check.

Are you able to DJ in between sets?
As standard we always carry an iPad with in excess of over 5000 songs to all our gigs that we use specifically for DJ'ing. The iPad holds music from the 50s right up to the latest chart hits making sure that we keep the dance floor full in between our live sets. We are of course happy to take requests for songs and make some basic announcements also. Our music library playlists between sets comes as standard with every booking, and if you want a more bespoke DJ service, we also offer a Professional DJ package upgrade option.

Will you learn our special song?
We are happy to discuss learning your first dance but it does depend on whether the song will suit the band or not. Certain genres of music do not make it easy for a 4 piece band to do a song justice, it has to be within our playing style and sound, we wouldn’t like you to be disappointed with the first song of the night.

Do you offer an Acoustic Set?
Yes we offer a 1 x 40 min set or 2 x 30 min set for an additional cost and the songs are carefully selected from our repertoire and are perfect for your meal or drinks reception. Alternatively if you want the band to play 3 x 40 min sets for the main performance you could always have the first 40 min set as a free acoustic option?

How much space do you need?
We usually require a performance area of 6x3 metres but we can accommodate a smaller space if required. We are accustomed to playing a variety of different venues so we will make use of what space is available.

How is it best to time things?
The band’s performance times are important in making your evening flow properly and we are totally flexible with this, although we prefer that our performance doesn't happen at the same time as the buffet or anything else you may have planned at your event. We also recommend that our second set is timed so that we play for the last hour of the event, as the dynamics of the performance works really well in this format, and creates a finale effect at your party.

Typical timings are as follows -

  • Arrival 6pm to be set up and sound checked by 7:30.
  • Background Music / DJ music / Acoustic Set from 7:30 until 8:30.
  • Live set 1 from 8:30 until 9:30.
  • Background/DJ music from 9:30 until 10:30
  • Live set 2 from 10:30 until 11:30 with DJ music until midnight.

What will the band wear?
For most parties we will dress formally (trousers, shirt and tie) unless otherwise stated by the client. If your event has a theme then we are happy to join in with this also.

How loud will the band be?
As we are a 4 piece guitar based band the nature of the music we play means we can only turn down so far. We always make sure that our volume levels are such that people at your event can still converse, but really feel as though they are at a gig when they're on the dance floor. If your chosen venue has a decibel noise limiter, please discuss this with us at the time of your enquiry as it’s worth discussing to make sure that the performance you will receive from us will not be compromised. If your venues decibel limit is restrictively low, we are more than happy to use our digital drum kit as this will allow us to control/limit the overall volume a lot more than with acoustic drums. Alternatively we could do an acoustic version of our performance which, while obviously being quieter, will still provide you with music that’s great to dance to.

Do you have lights?
Yes we do supply the latest LED lighting which lights the band as well as the dance floor area of the venue to give you the perfect atmosphere for your event.

What is the band power requirement?
As we use the latest LED lighting and PA equipment our power consumption is very low. Even with this in mind we do prefer to run lights from one power source and PA equipment from another to reduce the risk of noise interference. We usually request 2 double 13 amp supplies as near to the performance area as possible. We draw approximately 16 amps with everything on and have only ever experienced any issues in events in marquees where the generator capacity has been too low.

Does the band have PAT and PLI certificates?
PAT certification and Public Liability Insurance cover up to £10M comes as standard for all events.

Can we see some previous client testimonials?
Yes. We have many testimonials from our previous clients on our Warble profile. 

Can we use your sound system for speeches?
You are welcome to use our sound system but please be aware of the following points:

- We do not use radio mic’s so the tables would need to be near where the band are setting up in order for a lead to reach.

- The PA system is not mobile so once it is set up in place for the band it cannot be moved around the room or into a different room.

- Think about timings as it would cost more for us to arrive early.

- You will not be covered on our Public Liability Cover

Can one of our guests perform with the band?
Having a guest join us for our performance can be a real high point of the evening ……. or a low point. To avoid this we would like to discuss this prior to your event with yourself and the person you have in mind. As we have so much expensive equipment on and around the stage area an impromptu guest jumping up to join us can result in disaster and cost to them/you. Also, please note they would not be covered by our Public Liability Insurance.

Can I pick the band’s set list for my event?
Unfortunately we do not recommend ‘Client Picked Set lists’ as generally they have not worked at previous events. We usually ask the client for guidance on what type of music they like i.e. 60s, 70s, disco, indie etc or favourite bands / songs. Alternatively you can pick 20 – 40 songs and from that list we will select a number of songs and build the set around that. It also helps to inform us of any songs you do not wish to be played. Please note we do not guarantee we will play all your choices (we like to ‘DJ’ the set according to the age group and crowd reaction).

What if the band cannot make my event after booking?
In our 10 years of performing at a professional level Sauce has not cancelled a single event. In the very unlikely circumstance that this did happen we would make every effort to find a suitable band to replace us. As our work is our livelihood we take our commitments very seriously and we also understand how much events mean to each individual client.

Do Sauce have any specific requirements?
Sauce require a room to get changed in, preferably lockable so we can leave our clothes / valuables in and also food and light refreshments for the duration of the event. Please note this is standard with all professional working bands. 

Can I see you play live?
As the majority of our work is for private clients i.e. weddings or corporate events we try and keep our marketing i.e. recordings and videos as up to date as possible. In the off peak months we do occasionally play local public venues so ask your Warble booking agent for deatils on this.

  • As standard Sauce perform 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets.
  • In addition, Sauce are able to offer a 1 x 40 minute Acoustic Option, which is perfect for during Drinks Receptions or Wedding Breakfasts.
