How much do you charge?
Pricing depends on a few things such as; the band you require, venue size, distance, set up and finish times etc. This is why we price each unique event separately. Our standard price is £1600 plus any extras! Please contact us for an exact quote, this way we can work towards getting you the best deal for your money
Do The One Night Band require a deposit?
Yes, we require 30% of the final booking fee to confirm a booking. This charge will be included in the overall pricing for the event. This can be paid by Bank Transfer or Cheque.
How much space do you need?
5mx4m would be ideal but we've performed in much smaller spaces. We can make it work, but just bear in mind the drumkit needs at least 2m squared. So certainly nothing smaller than that!
What timings are best for my event?
This is totally depending on your event, and we are very flexible on timings. But these timings usually work pretty well (especially for Weddings)
6pm Band Arrive, to be set up by 7.30
Background music 7.30-8.30
First Dance and Set 1 8.30-9.15

DJ to whenever you fancy
Do you play recorded music during your breaks?
We play a DJ Set through the PA System from a laptop. If you prefer you can provide your own CD’s or a playlist on an iPod.
Can we chose our own playlists?
We would love you to chose your set, the day is supposed to be as personal to as possible! We have a wide repertoire to chose from, and we will help to create a personalised set with you from your choices.
We can provide many extras such as a DJ for after the live music, a Duo for the wedding breakfast, a Jazz Trio during drinks. Just ask, and we can probably do it!
Yes we do! We have 2x 4 ParCan T-bars for the stage & 4 Cluster lights for the dance floor.
Sure, as long as it's organised before hand we have no problem with that - they would need to bring their own equipment though!
We have had plenty of experience playing in venues with Sound Limiters, while they're not idea, we can make it work! Its important to let us know upon booking, so we can either speak to the venue prior to the event, or make sure we give ourselves enough time have a really good soundcheck
Can you learn songs?
We always enjoy increasing our repertoire. Speak to us about any song choices you have, and we will make every effort to learn them for you.
Does the band have insurance?
We each have Public Liability insurance up to £10,000,000, and all of our equipment is PAT tested. We always keep these certificates up to date.
How far will you travel?
We are happy to travel anywhere to play for you. Transport and accommodation, where necessary, will be considered when pricing your event.
Can you play our first dance?
We are happy to learn songs for first dances, and also have a list of first dance recommendations.
Can we use your Microphones for speeches?
Depending on the time your speeches are, and if we're set up you can use our mics for speeches. This Mic will be wired, and on a 10m cable, so you will still have to be relatively close to the stage.
When and how should we pay you the final balance?
Depending on the method of payment, we require payment before or on the day of the event. We accept Bank Transfers, Cash or Cheque* (*which has to be paid a week before the event)
What should I do in the event of a cancellation?
Unfortunately deposits can’t be refunded if there is a cancellation. If the event must be cancelled we ask to be informed as soon as possible. There may be liquidation costs if left too late.
Have The One Night Band ever cancelled?
Never, We have plenty of professional stand-in musicians who can step in in the unlikely event that a member of The One Night Band can not make it. However this has never happened.
Do you take requests to play encores?
We always have extra songs for an encore prepared. An extra fee may be incurred for extended performances.
Can we come and see you live?
Because of the nature of our work we don’t play many public gigs as they all tend to be private events, however time to time we do book public shows so check out our Facebook or Instagram page for details.
Do the band have any requirements?
We aren't too fussy! We ask for 5 x hot meals during our time, and would appreciate a room to get ready in before performing.
How do I book you?!
What about COVID 19?
Covid 19 has been a real bummer. We're still taking bookings as normal and offer a free postponement to weddings affected by Covid. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more info - or chat to us, as things are ever changing in this Covid World.
