The guys were fantastic, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to our friends.
The White Ties were amazing, they were so professional and catered to my every need! Lincoln was so lovely through all contact and on the night! All the guest commented on how good the band were! Definitely will have them again for other events!
The band were superb, very professional, very presentable and very punctual - we could not have been better entertained Lincoln could not have been more helpful leading up to our event and we would not hesitate to book them again through Warble Entertainment. Thank you White Ties!
Lincoln and the rest of the band were as good as it gets! Ultra organised prior to the wedding and fabulously friendly and truly entertaining. Thanks you boys - you help make the evening so great!!
The White Ties were excellent, very professional in the way they went about everything and friendly towards all my guests.
The White Ties did a fabulous job at our silver wedding party. Lincoln was friendly but professional in all his dealings with us. Several of our guests commented on how well they created a party atmosphere and took their details to use at their own events. Would definitely recommend.
Many thanks to The White Ties for the entertainment at the Warrington Golf Club on Saturday. A super act with a good range of songs covering the 50's to the 00's. Great feedback from the members who happily danced the night away!
Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. The communication from Warble and the band was exceptional. On the night they were fantastic. Great lads, would highly recommend.
Excellent, couldn't have asked for a better band. They made our day, all the guests loved their music and they went out of their way to ensure everything went well. I would recommend The White Ties to anyone.
The band were fantastic. I couldn't rate them enough and they were great communicators in the run up to the event. They did exactly as required and were lovely guys too. Thank you.
What can I say apart from amazing band. Friendly, funny, entertaining and fantastic. I would definitely book them again. From the day I booked them the communication was fantastic right up until the end of the performance. Thank you!
They were great, good communication leading up to the event, arrived on time and had a great song set that that everyone was dancing to. Highly recommend.
Simply put - absolutely fantastic. No other words needed. Thank you.
OMG... They were absolutely FANTASTIC!!!! They surpassed all expectation! They wholeheartedly rocked my socks off and did so with the rest of my guests! So much so that I only went to the bar once all night... (which is unheard of!) as I couldn't stop dancing!!! Lincoln was everything and more. His professionalism, the back drop with flashing lights... He even put special messages on it that flashed across the screen all night! The way he introduced Andrew Nutter and did the count down to 12 O'clock... it was all amazing!! We loved every second of them. In fact we are that impressed we are thinking of an excuse to book them again as we loved them so much. Everyone has been raving about them since! I also want to give a special mention about how wonderful Lincoln was with my 6 year old son William. He made a special fuss of him and wasn't dismayed when William refused to dance to the the 3 special songs he had chosen to dance to on the night. At times it all got a bit much for William, but Lincoln knew how to put him at ease and make the most of the situation. He was brilliant & went out of his way to make sure William was OK & happy, which was way over what you would expect a wedding band to do. Once again thank you so much for arranging the White Ties for our wedding. They were fabulous and I definitely would have no hesitation recommending them. Hopefully you will be hearing from us soon to book them for our next party.
The White Ties were the perfect band for our 40th birthday party celebrations. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music - both disco and live music. We loved the lighting and impressive back drop curtain too. Lincoln has been a pleasure to deal with - positive, reliable, responsive, professional and prompt. The White Ties are a brilliant act and we are delighted we chose them. Thank you.
Lincoln and Joe were great to deal with from the start and really lovely guys. They played a great mix of music and proved to be really popular and even had the crowd on their feet dancing. We will be booking them next year.
The White Ties were absolutely fantastic. They really got the crowd going. We had so many people up and dancing. The guys were really friendly and we will be booking them at the next opportunity!
Really great bunch of lads. Gave a lot of thought for the event beforehand, especially with Jack asking about his music choices etc. They were punctual, polite and great to deal with. Their performance was fab and really got the party rocking. Have no hesitation recommending the White Ties.
From the very first email, the communication was BRILLIANT! All of or guests commented in what lovely lads they were. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good wedding band in the future. Could not fault a single thing and they truly helped make our day so special.
The band were great and really contributed to the fantastic evening our guests had. Their communication prior to the event was exemplary and they are genuinely nice lads who clearly wanted to do all they could to make our night a success. Great set list, fab vocals. Would not hesitate to book them again in the future. Thanks Lincoln and team, thanks to Carrie for the spot on recommend... X
Amazing Band, so easy to deal with and they made a huge effort to make the night a success. Highly recommended 5*
Awesome set by the band. Rocked our family and friends socks off! Couldn't be more helpful, courteous and accommodating. Booking of the band was very easy and both Carrie at Warble and the band were very quick with responses and questions to help with our special day Thoroughly recommend both the band and the agency.
We absolutely loved The White Ties !! From our first chat through the arrangements and preparations and then on the day, we couldn't have asked for more! They were ready to party from the off, got our guests up and dancing all night and played longer than booked. They are extremely professional, unobtrusive in the prep on the day and a real class act. So friendly too. Oh, they are fantastic, talented musicians too!!! All our guests loved them. We're very clever to have chosen them!!
The band were amazing, all our wedding guests commented on how good they were. We had seen them at our friends wedding last year so we were pleased they lived up to our expectations. The band were really helpful and friendly in the run up to the wedding and on the day. Thank you for being part of our day and helping to make it so special!!
I cannot thank the White Ties enough for their amazing performance on our wedding. They are the most friendly bunch of people I have ever met. We received lots of compliments on them and their performance, even with some guests thinking they were putting on such a good show because they were our friends!! The only thing I didn't like was that their set went so quick!! I didn't want them to stop playing!! I think we may even get married again just so these guys can come back down and perform for us again, ha :) Thank you so much to Lincoln for the contact and help he gave leading up to the wedding. Nothing was ever too much trouble and I reiterate how friendly he and the other band members are. I will be recommending you all until I'm blue in the face!!
The White Ties were fantastic! They created such a brilliant atmosphere. Our dance floor was never empty! So many of our guests commented on how good they were. We would highly recommend The White Ties and we will definitely be booking them again in the future. Thank you Lincoln and the gang for making our wedding so perfect!
Excellent band thoroughly enjoyed by everybody. Interacted with the party and made it a great night. Third time we have booked them and it won't be the last. Can recommend them 100% Lincoln is a great guy who will go out of his way on the day to make it an occasion to remember.
I think I am understating when I say everyone thoroughly enjoyed your performance (and Lorraine's!! you were very accommodating) and all said you were excellent. Your enthusiasm and energy were unbelievable, the disco playlist and live sets captured the mood of our guests perfectly, the dance floor was full - you were very lucky to escape that night. The White Ties are superb and very professional, I do not hesitate in recommending them.
Dear Lincoln, hope you are well and that you all got to your homes in good time following Saturday. I would just like to say that you guys were fantastic,so many people have said how much they loved the band, thank you for contributing so much to our evening! You are extremely professional, and very accommodating, we cannot praise the White Ties enough! Please pass on our best wishes to the guys and I hope that our paths will cross again. Thank you, Dean and Mary Hammond
The White Ties were so professional and made every effort to make our evening a great success! All our friends and family commented on what a great band they were and the dance floor was full all of the time. I really couldn't find fault... They are a superb group and we wish them every success in the future. Dean and Mary (25th Anniversary)
The band arrived in very good time, were very polite and friendly and smartly dressed. No problems setting up at all. They are a really great bunch of boys, they were charming to our guests and everyone commented on their brilliant music, and knowing what to play to the room. Would be pleased to hire them again, and very happy to recommend them.
Hi Lincoln, sorry to email so late in the day but I had to send you a message now we are back home... Thank you SO MUCH! What an epic day and night we had. It couldn't have been better. You guys were fantastic and so friendly. Everyone said how good you were. People have already been asking about how we found you as they are keen to book you in the future. You honestly couldn't have made our day any better and we thank you so much for that. Danny wasn't sold on having a band as he felt no-one would dance... well how you proved him wrong!! :) (He now fully admits that his wife is always right!) Thank you so much again.
What an amazing band!! Lincoln and Joe (aka The White Ties) were fantastic. Before the event communication was excellent. During the wedding they tweaked timings to best suit our guests and played amazingly. You wouldn't believe the number of guests who came to us to say how great you were. We were so lucky to stumble across you guys and I am desperately trying to think of another event so we can hire you again! Thank you so much, Kat and Danny (aka Mr and Mrs Crossfield!) :)
Hi Lincoln, I have just sent my feedback to Warble Entertainment and I wanted to personally thank you too for helping to make my birthday party such a success. We all loved the band and you could tell my family and friends really enjoyed you too. The music was perfect, just what I wanted! So many people told me your were fabulous and I will have no hesitation in recommending The White Ties. I hope our paths will cross again. All the best, Julia x
Lincoln and The White Ties were absolutely fabulous. Their sets were well thought out, music was just what I wanted and my guests loved dancing to their songs. Everyone commented how good they were! I will definitely recommend them to others. Thank you. Warble Entertainment were also excellent to work with, very efficient, easy to book and no hesitation to use them again too. Thank You, Julia King
These guys were amazing. So helpful, and just lovely people! Great communication beforehand really put me at ease, they made sure they knew exactly what we wanted. Everybody commented on how good they were and shouted for more at the end! Which they got! Everyone was up dancing. We will definitely use you again for our next event! Excellent!
Just to let you know The White Ties were fantastic, everyone enjoyed their selection of music. Hope to do business with your company in the near future. Many thanks!
Hi Marie, regarding my party the whole lot could not have gone better. Lincoln and his duo partner were brilliant and everyone enjoyed their music very much. Lincoln was very helpful and very professional in all he did. Please pass on my thanks to them both.
We were very happy with The White Ties and had a lot of good feedback from our guests on how good they were. They explained everything from start to finish and everyone really enjoyed them. I will definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a band and will have them again if we have any more parties. Thank you for recommending them they were great.
Hi Tracey, Just a quick note to say thanks and just to let you know how impressed we were with The White Ties. From start to finish Lincoln was always available and on hand for any issues, requests and really tailored the set to all our requests. He was really flexible with the songs, timings etc. We felt really looked after and confident from the offset that they were going to do a really good job and we were not disappointed. On the night they were incredible and everyone commented on how good they were, they had everyone dancing. One of our guests already wants to book them for another function they are having in the summer. We truly appreciated all the hard work and effort all the lads put in, they made our function really memorable!
The White Ties were superb! From the first contact they made every effort to ensure that the party was a success. Lincoln was so thorough and considerate in preparations. They were conscious of catering for everyone at the party. Lincoln and Joel are both very talented and sounded great. And they were great fun yet professional. Would definitely recommend the White Ties to anyone for any occasion. Thank you guys!
We have been having a Dinner Dance every year for the last 14 years and we have had many good bands during this time. In my view and in most of the guests views the White Ties were the BEST yet. Not only were their music choices excellent,but I think what made the night was the boys themselves. Their personalities were infectious and they made everyone feel great. They even let me get up with them and sing - and I am tone deaf!! They were that good that I have been asked to book them up for next year. Thanks to them and also to Emily at Warble Entertainment for her efficiency and help in getting everything sorted at such short notice
We have nothing but praise for The White Ties! They really made our Wedding Blessing Party a success, and all our guests have since commented how good the band were. Lincoln, who heads up the band, was fantastic; he contacted us in advance of the day and really paid attention to our music preferences and requests. The two sets he put together had songs in them that really meant something to us and got guests of all generations up and dancing! He then made sure that his playlists for the disco at the end of the night and when the band weren't playing included the rest of the songs we had requested. I asked Lincoln to put together a fun evening of music that would have something in it for everybody, and it did. The band had to drive over 4 hours to play at our party, but you would never know as they gave it their all. They are a really fun band and we would not hesitate to recommend them to family and friends. We would certainly book them again ourselves (if they don't mind driving the distance to play for us again!) Thank you ever so much for your recommendation. I would be more than happy for this feedback to appear on the The White Ties website.
The band were brilliant, all our emails and questions were responded to very quickly and you could tell the enthusiasm of the band from the emails received. The band got people onto the dance floor and those that didn't commented on how good they were. The night ran really smoothly and was enjoyed by all, the choice of music was brilliant, a mixture of songs from across the decades went down well with everyone, I would fully recommend The White Ties to anyone thinking of having a band at a party.
The whole band were fantastic. Really got the party going. Great communication running up to the event! Fully recommend The White Ties.
Absolutely fantastic. Will definitely be booking again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and the White Ties delivered a professional and polished performance. They sang all the numbers we requested, played all the records requested for the disco, timings were spot on, they were polite, courteous, and friendly easy company. The disco sound quality was very good and their music fit the bill. Everyone commented how good they were, and how did we find them!!!!
Thank you for creating a fantastic atmosphere at our event, the delegates loved the music and were dancing all night. It was great that you were able to dress to our 60's theme and you really played the part. All the help and suggestions from Lincoln on the run up to the event was invaluable so thanks again!
An absolutely fantastic band! We hired them for our wedding and couldn't have been more thrilled with them! We have been swamped by comments from our guests about how great they were and how much they made the wedding. Lincoln was incredibly helpful from beginning to end and was able to accommodate any requests we made, even down to last minute timing changes on the night. We were especially impressed with their willingness to help us recreate the dance scene from Back to the Future for our first dance and beginning of live set. All in all an absolute pleasure to meet and to hire and my new husband and I can't thanks the band enough for putting on such a brilliant show and ensuring that the party was electric :) Thanks again to The White Ties! We are definitely considering hiring them again for an anniversary party next year!
I can do nothing more than praise the band and Warble for the whole process! As we said to Lincoln on the night, they were absolutely fantastic, he got the balance of music and genre's absolutely perfect and got everyone on to the dance floor! He was also very thorough with our booking and really worked well with us right up to the day of the party which was greatly appreciated! Tell them to expect a future booking from us!
Lincoln and the White Ties were fantastic - very professional to deal with, contacting us well in advance to sort out all the details, and flexible in allowing us to send them some extra tracks. And of course they were fantastic playing live on the day. Would definitely recommend them to anyone!
The White Ties played at our son's wedding last year and did such a brilliant job that we wanted them again for a big family party this year. We even changed our arrangements when the band wasn't available on the original date we'd chosen. We were not disappointed. From the start Lincoln was in touch to get a feel for the kind of thing we were looking for and as the big day drew closer, we exchanged several emails as we fine tuned timings and play lists with Lincoln making welcome suggestions and recommendations based on the band's experience. On the day, the guys arrived in plenty of time, set up with a minimum of fuss and accommodated some last minute changes we needed to make. In addition, you couldn't hope to meet a happier and friendlier bunch of chaps. Most important of all, their performance was simply marvelous and exactly what we'd hoped for. Over the course of the evening, many of our guests commented on what a brilliant job they were doing. They really were spot on in all respects. Sound - loud enough without being distorted or deafening; Lighting - enough to add ambiance but not overly distracting; On top of that they can play and sing too! First class! Overall rating? Ten out of ten for the White Ties. They will definitely be our first choice for any future celebrations. Steve T.
Hi Lincoln, Just wanted to write and say a massive THANK YOU for the gig last Saturday. I've had so many comments about how good the band were! I think the entertainment can make or break an evening do and you guys were amazing. I didn't get chance to dance much but all the guests had a brilliant time and it's all down to the White Ties. I promise to write you a great review online! Everything was perfect, you did everything exactly the way I'd hoped and I couldn't have asked for more. My brother was truly horrified to hear YNWA, I noticed everyone got up to dance to Delilah and people can't stop talking about Jasmine's Gangnam Style. Also, they can't believe you guys were only a three piece. Do let me know if you ever need a testimonial apart from on Warble, you and your guys really were fantastic and I'll definitely recommend you to people in future. Thanks again!
Hi John, thank you so much for suggesting the White Ties, they were absolutely fantastic and kept the dance floor full all night long, such a great band. I will get back to you very shortly with a review, just recovering from Saturday and the whole world seems to be calling here, I NEED SOME SLEEP!!!!!! Saturday was a wonderful day and the band made the evening party extra special. The French half of the party seemed to know all of the songs and joined in all of the time which was great, could not keep them or us for off the dance floor.
Having enjoyed dancing the night away to The White Ties at my bridesmaids wedding, they were a natural choice for our wedding. We cannot recommend them highly enough, their skill, experience and flexibility made planning easy and their performance on the night was amazing. All of our guests commented on how good they were and we really did dance the night away. We have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
We booked The White Ties for our wedding and we were absolutely thrilled with the show that they put on. The booking process through Warble was quick and efficient and Lincoln (the lead singer) contacted us several weeks before our wedding with a comprehensive list of songs to choose from as well as explaining how the show would work. We were able to put in plenty of our own choices and the band were so helpful in organising the impromptu ceilidh we had part way through the night! They are great musicians and they really know how to plan a show, the tempo was perfect and all our guests (young and old) gave us great feedback on the evening. The White Ties come highly recommended!
Thanks for a great night guys. Everyone really appreciated the show and you were the utmost professionals. You ran the timings on the night perfectly which made the whole evening very special. The communications prior to the night were spot on and most helpful. Thanks again.
Just wanted to say a big thank-you for the performance at the wedding. The band were really good and chose the right music to suit the guests adapting the playlist as the night went on to ensure everyone was included. Had lots of great feedback throughout the night and since from our guests. Would definitely recommend the band to anyone.
Thanks Warble Entertainment and The White Ties who were a fantastic band at our wedding. They are fantastic musicians and such nice guys who play a great selection of music. I recommend them to anyone as the dance floor was never empty!!
Hi Lincoln, It was great to meet you and the team yesterday. After all our email conversations, it felt like we've known each other for years already! Thank you so much for putting on such a great show at my party. Everyone has commented on how good you guys were and I was particularly impressed by your communication and organisational skills, and, in particular, the way you worked so well with our family member / DJ too. I've left a quick review on the Warble website but if you need anything else at all, do just let me know. I'm happy to help if I can. I am waiting for all the photos to roll in now so, when they do, I will try and remember to forward you a few for your portfolio. The red backdrop / archway behind the stage really set you off so I really hope somebody has some good ones of you (and not just of me head banging!). I hope you had a safe trip back home and are getting some rest now! Thanks so much once again. All the best and have a great Christmas! Best wishes, Barbara (and Mike) Hollyhead and all our guests.
Thank you so so much for playing at our wedding. The White Ties kept the dance floor full all night. It was lovely that many of our guests have commented on how good the band was. We would strongly recommend this band to play at any event, and we would definately use this band again. Thank you again The White Ties
Well, everyone who was there was on the dance floor straight away and never left. What such gentlemen too. They were lovely to meet and very good we all loved the music. One thing though the the SSM forgot to bring the money with him lol. BUT, we sorted it and they were so gracious about it. I hope we can book them in the future. Thank you once again for your help and we look forward to using you again next year. Have a good Christmas and a Safe New Year, Very Best Regards. Careen (Sgt Johnson)
Thanks to Lincoln and the White Ties boys for a fabulous job at my birthday party at Warehouse/El Puerto in Bristol last night. Everyone loved you! You are not only musically talented but so easy to work with, incredibly well organised and really nice guys! I loved the way you worked with our bro-in-law-cum-DJ Dave too. Great team effort! I hope your trip back home was not too arduous. Have a great Christmas.
We booked The White Ties as our wedding band for the 15/9/12 in Cumbria. I just wanted to send a quick email to review the band. The White Ties were fantastic, from the moment we booked the band they wanted to ensure that they pleased us. They allowed us to pick a number of songs for them to play during the evening reception and were very responsive to our questions. On the evening The White Ties were brilliant they catered for all of our guests and got everyone up on the dance floor. They were also very accommodating when it came to special song requests on the evening and didn't mind me changing timings of the first dance and flower toss on the night. Me and my partner are big Beatles fans having Beatles songs played at church and our table names were also Beatles songs. Seeing this the band then ensured that they played all the Beatles songs in their set list which was perfect and really made the theme flow. We have received a lot of good feedback from friends and family regarding The White Ties and we would definitley recommend them for a wedding or any other occasion. They are a very friendly bunch of guys and we will definitely keep them in mind for future family functions, as we would love to hear them play again. They gave a first class performance and ensured we had a wedding we would never forget. Thanks James and Madison Nice.
They were fantastic! Would definately hire them again and recommend them to others. They were very outgoing and friendly and their music choices fit a wide range of musical tastes.
We were really really happy with The White Ties, and would whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone looking for a helpful, friendly, reliable band to give a fun, lively, high-class performance. In the run-up to our wedding Lincoln was really helpful - being flexible about timings and logistics, and going out of his way to ensure we were happy with the live set list and disco playlist. On the day all the guys were friendly and made a real effort to make it a special evening for us. And the music was AMAZING! Many of our guests told us how much they enjoyed the show, and the dance floor was always packed. Thanks so much!
Thanks so much for playing at our wedding! The White Ties we're excellent! Great performance and great guys. Would happily recommend them for any event. Also, thanks to Jennie and Tracey for helping sort them out for us at such short notice.
The White Ties were absolutely brilliant at our wedding.Â Their music selection, equipment and performance were all spot on and they created a great atmosphere for all our guests.Â Everyone we spoke to had nothing but praise for these lads, not only did they put on a great show, they are also genuinely friendly, helpful, enthusiastic and well organised.Â We would highly recommend The Whites Ties to anyone who would like a fun and energetic band to liven up their party.
Hi Hannah, thank you for the note and I'm sorry for not contacting you prior to this. Lincoln and the White Ties were very good - arrived on time to set up, were friendly & courteous and delivered a thoroughly entertaining evening with great music - our guests loved the band and thought they were excellent; consequently we all had a great evening - we would be happy to recommend them to our friends. I was apprehensive booking a band over the internet - but thanks to you guys we had a memorable day - booking was easy and we had no problems whatsoever. With thanks.
Both Warble Entertainment and The White Ties have been a delight to deal with and both parties were quick to respond to my initial enquiries and the mechanics of the night. Lincoln and Anthony were a huge success on the night, the dance floor was full throughout both sets and I have no doubt we will book The White Ties in the future.
Hi Lincoln, Thank you so much for a fantastic performance on Saturday night. You were the highlight of everyone’s evening and I have heard nothing but praise on your performance. Also a big thank you for your patience with using your equipment through the night and being incredibly helpful when at times I was probably looking a little stressed. I definitely know where to come if I need a band in the future! Take care, many thanks.
Hi Tracey, The White Ties were very very good. Everyone at the party commented on how good they were. From my point of view they provided me with just the type of music I like. They were able to tailor both the live sets and the iPod disco to include favourite tracks of mine. This made it a very enjoyable evening. The whole experience from the intial contact with yourselves through to the gig was a very good experience.

HOW DO THE WHITE TIES ACHIEVE SUCH A FULL, POLISHED SOUND?
Firstly, the fact that the guys have many years of big-gig experience is a major factor in their sounding so tight. Secondly, the music equipment used is top-notch, including fully-active PA speakers, studio-quality fx pedals, etc. Thirdly, The White Ties use in-ear monitoring alongside the latest multi-channel backing track technology, enhancing their live performance with additional pre-recorded instrumentation. So, while Lead Vocals, Male Backing Vocals and main instrumental parts are performed live, the audience also hears female backing vocals, brass section, string section, synths, etc, depending on what each song needs to sound its best.
HOW DO THE WHITE TIES MANAGE TO KEEP UP SUCH A LIVELY, ENERGETIC SHOW?
Practice, practice, practice and water, water, water!
HOW MANY SETS DO THE WHITE TIES PLAY / HOW LONG DO THEY PERFORM FOR?
The band quotes gig fees based on two live sets. This works out at roughly 25 live songs in total - plus encores of course! The White Ties usually perform their show "Dance Style" (which minimises the downtime between one song ending and the next one starting, by using self-tuning guitars, programming a minimal gap between each song's backing sequence, announcing songs while intros are being played, etc) in which case each set lasts approx 45 minutes. If preferred, The White Ties can perform "Concert Style" (which involves more time talking to the audience, introducing songs, retuning guitars, etc) in which case each set lasts approx one hour. For weddings and other events with a dancefloor, we strongly advise the Dance Style show. For seated theatre events, we advise the Concert Style show.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE WHITE TIES DUO AND THREE PIECE BAND SHOWS?
With both line-ups you get the same great sound, the only significant differences are the visual impact and the minimum set-up space required.
THE WHITE TIES HAVE A LARGE REPERTOIRE, CAN I PICK CERTAIN SONGS I LIKE FROM IT?
The White Ties have a very busy gigging schedule and certain songs are chosen by clients far more frequently than others. To ensure a polished, professional performance of your favourite songs, clients are asked to email their song requests at least one calendar month before the performance date. One month's notice provides enough opportunity to schedule rehearsals for running through your chosen repertoire. If you book The White Ties with less than one month's notice before the performance date, please just send your song preferences ASAP and the guys will do everything they can to include as many of your favourites as possible!
CAN THE WHITE TIES PERFORM A SONG THAT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THEIR REPERTOIRE LIST?
The White Ties use only the highest-quality, custom-made multi-channel backing tracks to enhance their live show. There is only one company in Europe that produces these backing tracks, prices start from £120 per backing track and there is an 8 week waiting list. If the client is happy to cover the additional cost of having a backing sequence produced, and as long as the client gives at least 8 weeks notice, then The White Ties will happily learn and perform the requested song.
CAN THE WHITE TIES PROVIDE A DISCO SERVICE AS WELL AS PERFORMING LIVE?
Yes, a disco service is offered as a free optional extra! Using professional DJ software on a purpose-built laptop, cross-faded disco playlists will be played through The White Ties' fully-active PA system (far better quality than your average mobile disco) before, in between and after their live sets, providing non-stop music entertainment all night long! The disco service also includes a modern cluster-laser disco lighting effect for the dancefloor (no smoke machine is required for this effect). The White Ties will fulfill most, but not all, typical DJ duties. In other words, they will happily announce that your buffet is open, announce your first dance, take song requests from your guests, etc, but they WON'T keep jabbering through the microphone over the top of your favourite songs all night... and most clients seem to prefer it this way!
DO THE WHITE TIES HAVE ANY OTHER REQUIREMENTS / A RIDERS LIST?
The White Ties require: A parking space for the van with good access to the venue; a room for storing gig cases and changing into their stage clothes; soft drinks or bottled water to drink onstage; and a meal (hot or cold) either before or during the event.
- The White Ties perform 2 x 45 minutes (Dance Style show) as standard, or 2 x 60 minutes (Concert Style show).
