Yes, often we can but it’s best you talk to us as soon as possible to discuss this if it’s something you would like us to do.â€¨â€¨
Can you play after midnight?â€¨
All of our quotes are dependent on us finishing before midnight. If you want us to go on longer, there may be an additional charge. Please ask us for more information.â€¨â€¨ When you book the band you are more than welcome to go through our repertoire and highlight songs you particularly do or do not want us to play. Sometimes it is possible to learn new songs, but it can be hard to fit this into the band’s busy schedule and may incur additional charges. Let us know well in advance and we can discuss the options with you straight away.â€¨â€¨
What Happens between sets?â€¨
Tasteful and appropriate background music is played during any breaks while Swing Deluxe is not performing via an iPod or laptop computer. If you need a DJ service to continue the entertainment after our performance we will be happy to recommend one for you.â€¨â€¨
Do you bring your own sound equipment?â€¨
Yes. We have an excellent quality and compact PA system plus stage lighting rig that is suitable for venues up to approximately 160 guests.â€¨â€¨
How much time is needed for setting up?â€¨
We like to allow plenty of time for the equipment to be set up before your guests arrive and will usually arrive approximately 2 hours before the performance and be set up an hour beforehand. As every event and client has different requirements we liaise closely with you beforehand to ensure that the timings are the most suitable for you.â€¨â€¨
How much space do you need?â€¨
Not much, around 10’ wide by 8’ deep but we are used to squeezing into small spaces so we’ll do our best wherever we are.â€¨â€¨
What do you require in the way of food and drink?â€¨
As performing for evening events means a long working day (with the band often not getting home until the early hours of the morning), we do appreciate being provided with food & refreshments. We are happy with something from the buffet or some sandwiches – please let us know at the time of booking if this is not possible. We will require soft drinks at all events.
â€¨â€¨Is there anything else I need to provide?â€¨
We need at least three parking spaces, and a room for the band to change & store belonging before the performance (no bathrooms, toilets or garden sheds etc!!!).
Where is the band based?â€¨
The band is based in London, but we travel and perform both in the UK and internationally. We regularly travel up to 100 miles from London. We are also happy to travel further than this, though we may need to arrange overnight accommodation which would incur additional charges.â€¨â€¨
Is it possible to see the band live before booking?
â€¨Unfortunately, the vast majority of our events are private functions so it is often not possible to see the band perform live before booking us. However, any public performances that we have coming up will be listed on our events page. Please be assured that our demo recordings are a very good representation of how the band sounds live & many people have commented how much better we sound live!â€¨â€¨
What about insurance and health and safety requirements?â€¨
Swing Deluxe are insured for public liability, and all PA and electrical equipment is PAT tested and approved for health and safety requirements to comply with venue’s requirements.â€¨â€¨
How much will it cost to book Swing Deluxe to perform?
â€¨Our service is truly bespoke and each event is tailored specifically to the client. This makes us almost unique in that each show is individually arranged around the client’s requirements and therefore it’s very difficult to give guide prices. We are very happy to give you a written quote which is all inclusive and has no hidden costs whenever you require one, and we guarantee to keep our quote as competitive and affordable as possible.
