Is the band available / still available?
When we email you a quote, the bands are available according to our records.
If you have just asked us if a band is still available, then if we responded directing you to this page, the band was still available according to our records.
Many people book 12 months or so ahead, where availability changes slowly. Near to the event and on popular dates, availability can change more rapidly. We take bookings on a first come first served basis, based on the date and time that the deposit was received by us together with a properly completed booking. So if you want to book a particular band, do so as soon as you can. (Bookings have to be done online from the link on our quotation email).
A band is made up of individuals who have their own life outside the band, so we need to confirm that each band member can make themselves available on the date booked. We only do this after we receive your online booking. (If we can tell the person that there is a firm booking, they will do their best to change any personal arrangements so that the whole band can perform. If the booking hasn't been confirmed, they won't do this.)
If it transpires that the band is unable to do the booking, we can usually offer you alternatives who are still available. At this point you can chose whether to book an alternative, or to have your deposit refunded.
(NOTE: If the band you asked to book can accept your booking, the deposit is not refundable)
