Get in touch

From the start your enquiry will be dealt with by leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available on 0800 564 2240 / info@wedding-band-surrey.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.

Book the band

Once you have decided that Academy Allstars are the band for you Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the day and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit (£300 - £465, depending on the optional extras and line-up that you choose) to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.

Planning

In the lead up to the wedding you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the day. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, first dance, song requests for the disco or DJ, final payment details etc. All of the details will be recorded and sent to the band in one simple final confirmation email, so you can be sure nothing will get missed and everything discussed will happen as planned on the night.

On the night

Academy Allstars will arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and pre-mixed disco (or a band member can DJ if you add this to your booking) and will perform 2 hours of live music (2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets). The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.

If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the band would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening. If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) the band could arrive while you are eating to get set up (they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches!) - it takes a minimum of 90 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.

A guide to a standard evening reception would be:

  • 17:30 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On
  • 20:00 - First Dance/First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for evening buffet)
  • 22:00 - Second Set (60 mins)
  • 23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close

Timings are flexible to suit your needs and live sets can be split 3 x 40 mins if you prefer. Academy Allstars standard price is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there is an additional charge.

The band are very happy to perform your choice of first dance for you as long as they have at least three weeks notice of the song choice.

Academy Allstars also offer two brilliant daytime music options that will complete a special day of entrainment for your big day. Choose from:

Rob - Singer/Guitarist, to perform up to 120 mins of beautiful acoustic music at your ceremony and drinks reception.

Oliver - Instrumental Guitarist, to perform up to 120 minutes of background music, perfect for drinks receptions.

To discuss hiring Academy Allstars to perform at your wedding please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240, or email info@wedding-band-surrey.co.uk.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Anj
Wedding, High Billinghurst Farm, Godalming
Just wanted to say that Academy Allstars were just fantastic – they played so well and we loved every minute of them being on. Thanks very much to the Tailored theam for all their help over the last few weeks, it made the whole process so much smoother working with a flexible company!

Wedding, Kingston Bagpuize House, Abingdon
The band arrived to set up during the end of our wedding meal, as planned. They were very discreet and professional and did not disrupt the ongoing events, which was great. The first dance was just as we had hoped and the band did a really good rendition of our chosen song. The venue had a sound limiter, which did kick in occasionally, however, the band were clearly very used to working with this sort of system and managed it very well with minimal impact to the ongoing music and dancing. The dancefloor was full from start to finish for both sets and we received lots of very positive comments from our guests on how much they enjoyed the band, which was great to hear.

I just want to send you an email to say what a huge success Academy Allstars were at Oliver and Holly’s wedding - we had lots of comments from our guests about how good the band were and everyone was very impressed with the singer. The band beautifully learnt my request for the happy couple and sang it beautifully too! I did thank the band on the night but the room was buzzing so much there wasn’t really chance to say any more! Please do say a very big and heartfelt thank you from us to each band member for their hard work and professionalism - it was a pleasure to dance to them. And, a huge thank you too to you two ladies for sorting out the request, being very reassuring and also charming on the phone!

They were absolutely great. Really fun and learnt our special requests perfectly. Our guests absolutely loved them - epic finish with' Hey Jude'. Sad that we as the bridge and groom didn't find the time meet them and chat at all and really say thank you in person - we're sorry for that.
Anna Redding
Wedding, Clock Barn, Hampshire
Wow, what a band! The vocals were on point, just stunning. They were all so friendly and accommodating. We had a slight miscommunication as to what I had wanted in terms of ordering songs but the band were incredibly flexible. They even learnt Ghostbusters, which my nephews loved. My new husband didn't stop dancing all night and said "they just played this amazing medley of hits, I couldn't leave (the dance floor). They all seemed to just love what they were doing and gave such an epic performance, it really made our evening.
