The Trilbys played at our wedding. Communication with Ben beforehand was quick and easy and they had a large repertoire that could be tailored to create our set-list for the day. They also had no problems with learning our first dance song. The band were amazing and were highly complemented by our guests. We would definitely recommend them!
The Trilbys were absolutely fantastic at our wedding! They played so well and our guests really enjoyed their playing, we had so many compliments about it. They did our first dance exactly as we asked for it so we could dance slightly less terribly! Thank you so much to them for travelling down to Devon to play!

The band were amazing and were a total highlight to end our day with!
The band were very professional - both in their handling of the pre-party arrangements and at the venue. They were a brilliant group with a great range of music and we had lots of wonderful comments about them. Would thoroughly recommend.
5 out of 5!
From Ben's first contact three weeks before the date to the day itself, we couldn't have been happier with our decision to book The Trilbys. They were professional, prompt, polite, very friendly and above all played great music! They set the tone perfectly for the laid back, fun evening we'd hoped for. Many of our guests commented how good the band was. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Just a quick note to say thanks so much for Saturday. We had the best day and you being there and playing your music really made it a day to remember. We’d definitely recommend you to any of our friends and family getting married or having a party. Hopefully we’ll get to see you play again. All the best Simon & Kay.
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.
Can I see them perform live before booking?
Unfortunately the only performances The Trilbys do tend to be private weddings and parties. However, the videos, audio samples and pictures give an excellent representation.
How far will they travel?
The Trilbys are happy to travel anywhere for your event. However, please bear in mind that venues situated over 2 hours travel from Surrey will incur additional costs for travel and accomodation as needed.
What happens if a band member is ill and has to cancel?
In the event of any band member being unable to perform due to illness or other unforeseen circumstance, The Trilbys have a number of professional understudies to call upon. This will in no way interfere with the quality of the performance.
How long will they take to set up their equipment?
It is best to allow The Trilbys 1 hour to be completely set up, sound checked and ready to start.
How long will they play for?
The Trilbys will play two hours of live music divided to suit you. This is commonly done as 2 x 1 hour sets or 3 x 40 minute sets. If you require additional sets of live music this can be arranged for you at extra cost.
How many songs will they play during their set?
In the 2 hours of live music, The Trilbys can be expected to cover between 30 and 40 songs.
How long will the interval(s) be?
The Trilbys will usually take an interval of 10 to 15 minutes between sets. These can be extended to suit you.
What happens when they aren’t playing?
When The Trilbys aren't playing, they will put appropriate party music through their sound system to keep the atmosphere going. An alternative is for you to provide an iPod or laptop with a playlist of your choice which they can then put through the sound system.
How loud will they be?
In terms of volume, you can expect The Trilbys to be loud enough to dance to but quiet enough that your guests away from the dancefloor can hold a conversation comfortably. As they are using a sound system, they will be happy to adjust volume levels to suit your preference.
Our venue uses a sound limiter, is this a problem?
A sound limiter above 90db is perfectly manageable. Any lower than this and it is worth double checking as sound limiters usually work by cutting off the power to the band’s equipment which can cause damage.
What will they wear?
The Trilbys will be smartly dressed in black or white shirts, black trousers and smart shoes. If you require specific outfits (tuxedos for example) please enquire and these can be hired in for an extra cost.
How much space will they need?
Duo: 8’ x 8’
3-piece: 12’ x 12’
4-piece: 16’ x 14’
5-piece: 18’ x 14
Will they bring lighting?
The Trilbys have 2 disco style floor lights and 1 disco style row of overhead, bar lights.
Can we choose which songs they will play?
The Trilbys have a set list consisting of songs which work well from their experience. They will also have an extended repertoire list of all the songs they know. You are welcome to substitute any songs from the extended repertoire into the set list as long as this is done with enough notice for them to perfect your requests. In terms of songs not on the repertoire, The Trilbys will be happy to learn one song just for you (your first dance for example) for no extra charge, providing it works with the instrumental make up of the band.
Can we borrow their microphone for speeches / announcements on the night?
Of course, clients often make use of the microphone for speeches / announcements. Although it is worth running through the logistics of when you would like to use the microphone before the day of the event.
Do they provide PLI & PAT certificates?
The Trilbys have up to date PLI (Public Liability Insurance) and PAT (Portable Appliance Test) certificates which some venues may ask for.
Do we need to provide anything?
As The Trilbys will be at your venue for the entire evening, we do ask that you provide some food and drink (some of the evening buffet and water are absolutely fine).
