Drinkreception.co.uk is an exciting new agency, run by musicians who are in the entertainment business and world music circle for over 10 years. After playing in hundreds of music festivals, weddings and elite hotels we decided to try our skills at establishing this agency.
We want you to have the time of your life at your event, so we will make sure to find the right, professional and unique act for you, so your event will run as smooth as possible. We will create the experience and memories that your guests will talk about months and months after the event.
It depends on the type of musician that you want to bring to your event, some of the more popular musicians are booked up one year ahead. It also depends on the day your event will take place, musicians tend to be busier during Fridays and Saturdays, but more available during the weekdays. We recommend to book the musicians about 6-8 months before the event. If you are closer to the date the best would be to ask if they are still available.
Some of our musicians/bands work mainly in private events so it is not possible to see them live, but many of our bands have public performances and you will be welcome to listen to them and meet them in their performance. Specially many of our world music bands are touring regularly. Please get in touch for further information.
Unfortunately, it is only possible with a deposit. If we hold a date without a deposit and in the end the booking will not happen, our musicians will lose the opportunity to play in other events. Many of our musicians do this as a full-time job and rely on the performances as their income.
Yes, all our musicians have public liability insurance and can provide this.
The first step will be to see if the band/musician is free for your date. If they are available we will send you a contract and need a deposit (usually 20% of the booking fee), this will hold the date for you. The rest of the fee is required either a week before the event or on the day of the event.
It varies depending on which musician/band you would like to book, also depends on the event you are organizing. Please get in touch for further quotes.
