How many musicians are in the Band?
The group consists of 4 members playing electric guitar, bass guitar, keyboards and drums, three of which perform vocals. ALSO WE DON’T USE BACKING TRACKS!
How can I be sure that the group of musicians I hire will be the same musicians who will perform at my wedding?
SOUTHBOUND is a set 4 piece group which means ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE BAND WILL BE THE SAME EVERY TIME, in fact three of the band members are brothers. If a member is away due to illness he will be replaced with a suitable substitute.
The ages of our quests will vary considerably. Can your Band play all types of music?
YES. Our song list is extensive and the repertoire is specially chosen for a dancing audience. If your guests are predominately older or younger we can alternate the play list to suite.
How long do the Band play for on the night and how many breaks do they take?
A SOUTHBOUND set is 2½ Hours. Usually 1½ hours of music followed by a 20 min break (to coincide with afters food) followed by a final 1 hour music to coincide with you DJ commencing. This can sometimes run to 1 hour 15mins when the crowd are shouting for an encore! We ensure a smooth transition from Band to DJ and usually play background music during the break to keep the atmosphere going.
Will the Band perform at a volume that is comfortable for me and my guests?
One of the most important aspects of hiring a band is sound volume. Unlike many wedding/function bands out there, we have a state of the art MARTIN/Soundcraft Digital PA & monitor system, so you can be sure that we will keep the volume level at a suitable level to suite the venue size.
How can I get to see / hear the band live?
