The Haymakers played at our wedding in August and were absolutely perfect. Musically, you won't find a more talented bunch and they were able to accommodate to our eclectic song requests! There was also an acoustic for the ceremony which truly blew everyone away and set a magical atmosphere so we would certainly recommend the acoustic set also. All in all, they exceeded every expectation we ever had and were amazing!!! Thank you so much for making our day magical and fun filled!! Absolutely smashed it! Best wedding band ever!
We give you a bespoke price based on the exact location of your event. The pricing below is based on a central location for your area so you have an idea of what your price will be. The exact price will be given in the booking process after you’ve provided the location details.
What do we need to provide for you to perform?
We're low maintenance, promise! We will need access to the mains power supply unless using portable amplification for pop up gig. We'll need and parking, load-in access at pre-agreed times. If possible a small green room space is great and we always appreciate being included in catering plans.
How long do you need to set up?
Usually an hour is great once we have access to the performance space. We will need to soundcheck at full performance level to make sure we get the best sound. This can take a little longer depending on the venue and running times. Once we know your event timings we can work out and agree on the best times to set up in advance.
What equipment is included?
We will provide everything we need to perform, as well as stage lighting. We can offer busking style sets with battery powered amplification for situations without power. Please bear in mind we generally do not allow the use of our equipment by anyone other than band members.
Do you DJ?
We offer our professional PA gear for you to play your DJ playlists through, or we provide the playlists, whether that's some chilled background music between sets or the late-night 'after party' session, we've got you covered.
What's included in your fee?
We include up to 2 hours of live music in 2-3 sets, which is usually perfect for most events. We can add more live sets, add an extra acoustic set or DJ until late if required. We are even able to cover a whole day with our duo, acoustic band, electric band and DJ sets.
