Does the Band have Public Liability Insurance / PAT Certificates?
Yes. These can be produced on the night or emailed to the venue before your event.
What time will the Band arrive?
The band arrives to set up and soundcheck at 6pm (this is usually after any evening food or speeches). If you require the band to set up any earlier than this, you will need to make us aware of this during the booking process as this will incur an additional fee.
How long does the Band play for?
The band typically perform two 45 minute sets with a short break between them with encores usually bringing the total performance time to approximately two hours. However longer performances can be tailored to suit your individual requirements.
I want to serve food when the band is on or just before they perform is this a good idea?
One of the most common mistakes to make is organising food just before, or during the band's first set. This really inhibits your guests ability to fully enjoy the band and will dampen the party atmosphere. So please make sure that you allow at least half an hour for your guests to have their meal before the first set start time.
Though we understand each event will differ and you will require specific start times due to venue or time scheduling, we would recommend playing our first set at 9.30pm. This will ensure that your guests have had enough time to let their food go down, get slightly merry and are ready to hit the dance floor.
We will provide background music in the interim between sets. For more information on our recommend event plan, please see "What is the best time to have the band perform?" below.
How much room does the Band need?
The second most common mistake is not allowing the band enough room to perform. We want to make your night as spectacular as possible (this is what you're paying for after all). So in order to do this we require a certain amount of room to allow for audience interaction and movement on stage. The amount of floor space really does dictate how well we are able to perform and our Lighting Rig, Amps, PA and Drum kit have size footprints that cannot be altered or reduced, to enable us to squeeze into a tiny corner... and nobody should ever put baby in a corner, right? :-)
Once the equipment has been set up and soundchecked we are not able to move it. So please ensure that if you have multiple acts on the same stage that you allow adequate room and set up time (see How long does the band need to set up? for details) for us and your other entertainers to work to. It would be preferable for you to send to us a schedule of events at the time of booking, so that we can work together to help things run as smoothly as possible on the day.
As a guide the band needs enough room to cater for drums, bass and guitar set up, PA system and lighting rig. The minimum space required is Width -16 ft (4.87 metres) and Length (depth of stage) 10 ft (3.1 metres). We can adapt to spaces and venues but these measurements will give you a guide. If you have also booked a DJ for your event, please can you let them know that the Band will require the above space to set up.
How much Voltage does the Band's equipment require?
We get asked to perform at a lot of private parties and outdoor events and this may require some of our customers to hire a generator. The band needs enough power to cater for all of their PA, lighting and musical amplifiers, so if you are having to hire your own generator for an event, the bands power output will be just under 10KVA, which means that you will need to look at a power source of well over this to ensure that your generator will have enough headroom.
How long does the Band need to set up?
Ideally the band needs a minimum of 1 hour and 30 minutes to set up before performing. Please allow extra time if your occasion is on any floor other than the ground floor or if there are steps, walkways or other access restrictions to the venue. For an additional fee the band can arrange an early setup for convenience. The band will need to carry out a sound check before they begin their performance so please bear this in mind. This is to ensure volume levels are appropriate for the venue and to diagnose any acoustic or feedback issues.
Does the Band have lighting?
Yes, the band has its own professional lighting rig which helps to create a fantastic ambience at your event. This includes stage lighting so you can see the band whilst they perform, and lighting to shine on the dancefloor for you and all your guests to enjoy whilst dancing. The band will bring along all their own lighting to your event and this will be included in the overall quotation given to you upon receiving your enquiry.
Can I play my own music through the Band’s speaker system?
Yes. If you require the use of the speakers through which to play an iPod or other device with 3.5mm headphone jack (first dance etc) then please be aware that there will be a small additional cost if you wish to use the bands speakers beyond midnight. If you want to bring your first dance or any special songs to be played through our PA system at any point of the night before midnight, then please bring the device with you and we will happily oblige.
What kind of music do you play in between your sets?
All of our weddding and party packages contain the "DJ replacement service" where the band bring background party music to be played post set up, in between the bands live sets and up until midnight or the event finish time (depending on the package you purchase). This music playlist contains popular party music from the soul, motown, funk, pop, indie, and rock genres to get you and your guests in the mood for the band and to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere. As we have over 8 hours of music on our playlist we are unable to list each song that will be played on the night but please feel be assured that the band have catered for lots of tastes. Supersonics are more than happy to use your own playlist if you want to bring it along on an iPod, iPhone or other device with 3.5mm headphone jack and they will simply plug it into their PA system.
How loud is the Band?
Supersonics are a high energy function band, we are lively and loud to ensure that your guests are dancing all night. Some venues unfortunately have noise restriction devices called Noise Limiters. These devices are designed to cut the power to the venue if a certain noise level is exceeded. Very often this level is set to below 90 decibels (db) which is as loud as a Tractor engine and quieter than your average baby crying. As the band uses a live drum kit there is a minimum volume that cannot be changed this is around 115db or higher. You will need to inform the band at the booking stage if there are any noise restrictions or limitations at your chosen venue. We can of course, work with a limiter if the venue are not prepared to allow us a concession, however you should note that the performance will be significantly quieter and will lose some of its energy.
What sort of music do you play?
Supersonics play a range of popular music, please see our Set List section for all the relevant information.
Can Supersonics learn specific songs for my event?
Any specific song requests can be discussed subject to an extra fee to cover additional rehearsal time required for new material.
Can I choose the whole Bands setlist?
The band has a tried and tested set list that is aimed at not only you, but all of your guests to cater for all the musical tastes and ages of people attending your event. We will happily listen to any suggestions you may have, from our Set List section that you absolutley love or have seen or heard us perform previously live, but please trust the whole set to the professionals (us) as that is what you are hiring us for, to ensure everyone has a great night. Our experience of performing live for a number of years means we know exactly where to place certain songs during the evening set so they achieve their maximum potential and impact.
What will the Band wear?
The band will dress appropriately for each and every occasion, smart or casual.
- 2 x 45 Minutes plus encores
- 2 x 60 Minutes plus encores
As a standard the band will play music in between and after their sets via an iPod as well as conduct any speeches and announcements over the PA System, which can save you money on hiring a separate DJ for the evening.
The band are also able to provide a Professional DJ service as a further added extra as well as a Professional Photographer who will snap pictures of your party guests, capturing the fun parts of the night that other photgraphers would otherwise miss.
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.
