Bookings

Can we see you play live before we book you?
Yes you can. For a full list of our public performances please click the ‘gigs’ tab at the top of this website.

How do we book you?
Please email us at info@thedamiainlodrickband.co.uk and we will be happy to talk with you about your event. Should you decide to make a booking we will then work with you on the finer details of your event. If you decide to go ahead, we will kick off the process by sending you our booking contract.

Do you require a deposit?
We require a non-refundable deposit. This along with your singed booking contract will secure your booking. Any monies received will be promptly acknowledged.

How far will you travel?
We are happy to travel anywhere to play for you. Transport and accommodation costs, where necessary, will be considered and discussed with you when pricing your event.

Can I book more than one of your services for my event?
Yes you can. We can provide everything from music for walking down the aisle to music for a drinks reception all the way to your evenings entertainment and everything in-between.

What other services can you provide?
If you would like, Wonderboy is able to provide additional musical services to further enhance your event. Please visit our ‘packages’ page on our website to see what additional services we can provide. 

On The Day

When do you arrive?
We can arrive up to 4 hours before the performance to load in equipment, set up and sound check. If you need us to arrive any earlier there will be an additional charge.

How long do you need to set up?
We require up to 30 minutes to load our equipment into the venue. This time very much depends on how close parking is to where we are performing and90 minutes for setting up and sound checking. It’s always best to make sure there is time for this as it allows us to make sure the band is looking and sounding great!

How much power do you require?
We require a minimum of 2 standard UK 230v power sockets equipped with 13amp fuses.  For outdoors or events where mains power is unavailable you will need to provide us with a generator that must deliver a minimum of 7kW and two 16amp to 13amp converter sockets.

My event is being hosted in a marquee, is this a problem?
Not at all. We frequently perform in marquees and outside; provided that there is an adequate power supply and the performance area is completely water tight on all sides including the ground. Under no circumstances will we play if there is a chance of water damaging our equipment.

The area where you would like us to set up and perform in needs to have a hard, flat and level surface, particularly for the drum kit. Marquee carpets are unfortunately not suitable at all for a drum kit to set up on. At the very least, a hardstanding surface for the drums is required. If the rest of the area is dry other band members can set up on the floor. Most marquee hire companies can provide a small raised stage area that is suitable for bands.

How much space to do you need?
Ideally, 4 x 5 metres is a great size for us. The drums have at least a 2 metre squared footprint so this gives the rest of the band room to perform comfortably. We have fit into some tight spaces in the past, so please feel free to discuss this with us if you have any concerns about the space you have.

Do you have insurance?
Unfortunately accidents can happen and in this case we have public liability insurance. If the venue requires proof of our documentation please contact us and we will be happy to send it to them.

What happens if a member of the band is taken sick will you cancel?
In the unlikely event that a member of the band is unable to attend a performance we have a large list of deputy musicians who regularly play with the band that are able to seamlessly cover for any missing member. Any deputies we use have been carefully chosen by us to maintain the quality and standards of Wonderboy.

What equipment we provide

What equipment do you provide?
We will provide all the equipment we need for our performance including a full lighting rig and sound system. We do not provide our own power source, which will be required for outdoors or marquee events.

If your event is of a larger scale (more than 300 people) we will need to hire a sound engineer and a larger P.A system, because of this there will be additional fees.

Can we use your microphone for announcements/speeches?
Provided the band has set up in advance you are welcome to use our system for speeches.

The venue has a sound limiter/is in an area where complaints are common, could this cause a problem?
In most cases it wont be a problem however it is best to talk to the venue and us prior to booking, as we may need to make special arrangements. If it helps, we can also speak to the venue for you.

It is possible for us to play quietly but some venues do have unrealistically low limits set on their sound limiters and this can impede the performance and sound quality of a band.

Is Your Equipment P.A.T tested?
Yes, we have our equipment tested every year.  Should your venue need proof of this, please let us know and we can send the relevant documentation to them.

Performance

How long do you play for?
The band will play for 2 x 1 hour sets with a break in the middle.

How many songs do you play?
We find that generally a 1-hour set is around 15 or 16 songs.

Do you use backing tracks?
No, we are a fully live band.

Do you take requests on the night
We do not take song requests during our performances. But rest assured we have a very comprehensive list of tried and tested floor fillers.

Do you play encores?
We always have extra songs for an encore prepared, just incase we are asked to play a couple more songs. Requests to play extended performances of live music on the day of a booking will be subject to extra fees.

What happens if our event is running late?
We understand that wedding and function schedules can overrun. We will do our very best to fit in around you, however should your event run so late that it would mean we are still playing past midnight (unless previously agreed) an additional fee of £150 will be charged.

Can we request a song for our first dance?
We’d be delighted to play your first dance and would be happy to learn it. Our only two stipulations are that it is a song we feel confident of reproducing to the highest possible standard and that you give us at least 3 months prior notice. In the unlikely event that we feel we cannot accurately represent the song for you we will arrange to have the original played at the special moment. If there is more than one song you would like us to learn then there will be an additional charge of £100 per song. 

Payment

How much do you charge?
Pricing depends on a few things such as; the services you require, venue size, distance, set up and finish times etc. This is why we price each unique event separately. Please contact us at info@thedamiainlodrickband.co.uk for an exact quote. This way we can work towards getting the right package and best deal for your money.

When do we pay in full?
We require a balancing payment be made in full before 14 days before the confirmed date of the event. Payment methods can be discussed at the booking stage.

What happens if my event gets cancelled?
If your event is unfortunately cancelled within 3 months prior to the scheduled date then we reserve the right to charge up to 50% of the quoted price. Should the event be cancelled within 14 days of the scheduled date this could incur a charge of up to 100% of the quoted fee at our discretion.
