Festival Folk Party Band Hire London

Turn your party into a sun-baked festival with Smith & Son’s who will rival any headliner out there. With large events to their name, including the grand-daddy of them all, Glastonbury, Smith & Sons will bring that authentic festival feel to your function. The banjo/guitar wielding foursome will bring their feisty Mumford and Sons folk-style on top of an eclectic, electric set where they’ll bring a full storm of indie riffs from the likes of Oasis, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Bastille, Pulp. Two Door Cinema Club and Arctic Monkeys (and everything in between!). Smiths and Sons really are the feel-great outfit that will give your party that festival headliner experience.

BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that Smith & Sons 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 event and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.

PLANNING

In the lead up to your party you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the evening. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, set preferences, 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

Smith & Sons 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.

A guide to a standard evening party would be:

  • 17:30 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On For Welcome Drinks
  • 20:00 - First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for buffet if you’re having one, and if it’s a birthday, perfect time for doing the cake!)
  • 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. The standard price for Smith & Sons 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 a special request for you as long as they have at least three weeks’ notice of the song choice.

Smith & Sons also offer a brilliant live lounge-style acoustic set, this is the perfect addition to your welcome drinks and can really help set the mood for a great party. As the musicians are already booked to perform at the event, the price of this set represents excellent value when compared to hiring a separate band for your drinks reception entertainment - it can be as much as 50% cheaper than hiring an equivalent act.

To discuss hiring Smith & Sons to perform at your party please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@smithsonsband.com.

Smith & Sons are based in the London area, and are hired all across the U.K. including Essex, East Anglia, Guildford, Sussex, Hampshire, Kent and many more.

The band were fab! All our guests said how good they were too, the dance floor stayed busy all night, sounded even better than their videos. The chaps were also very friendly, able to adapt to the venue and played a great set. Would highly recommend them.

Sarah and Robin
Wedding, Tregildrans Quarry, Cornwall
We had the most magical time, thank you! The band were fantastic although we felt guilty as a lot of our guests (including ourselves) were so caught up with catching up with friends and family that we didn’t dance as much as we thought! They sounded great and we had a packed dance floor for the final song! They were also very friendly and we had a good chat with them afterwards :)
