All the musicians in the band are professional artists in their own right and have been performing at high profile events, corporate functions, weddings and parties for many years. We are very strict on our audition procedure, and are confident that all of our band members understand the on/offstage rules as appropriate. This means that as well as conducting themselves well musically on stage, they are also approachable, polite and maintain a professional image when not performing.
Audio Chaff perform regularly and often in public engagements at venues such as clubs, bars and restaurants. If you are keen to see the band perform live then we are happy to provide you with information about any of their upcoming public performances for you to attend.
Our policy is to contract every booking. Therefore, when you decide to book the band we will liaise with you to put a contract together. This contract agrees the terms that we have negotiated with you and ourselves, which we sign as ‘The Band’ and you sign as the client.
This depends on the size of the band and how easy it is for the band to load in their equipment to the venue. We can provide specific get in times for each of our ensembles so please get in touch.
This is something that will be discussed when you book the band as it is specific to each occasion. Party bands at a wedding normally play 2 x 45 minute sets. Most of the time this is sufficient but if you require more time then this can easily be arranged for an agreed fee. We would be happy to discuss this with you in more detail.
Each variation of the band is priced differently. If you can let us know what your budget is then we can recommend an appropriate ensemble for that price range. A price list is also available, please email us for this.
Yes. A corporate function can be different to a wedding/party/function. We can fit the entertainment around the theme of the evening and provide you with a variety of eclectic and dynamic sets that will create a lasting impression. If you tell us what you want then we will provide it!
