BOOK THE BAND

PLANNING

In the lead up to your event 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, live 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

The Great Escape 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 corporate awards night/dinner would be:

  • 17:00 - Band Arrive
  • 18:30 - Background Music On For Guest Arrival & Welcome Drinks
  • 19:30 - Dinner Served
  • 21:00 - Speeches/Awards (we can supply mic if required)
  • 21:30/22:00 - Live music and disco 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 The Great Escape 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. For an additional fee they can also learn bespoke stings for awards presentations.

The Great Escape 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 evening. 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 The Great Escape to perform at your corporate function please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@great-escape-band.co.uk.

The Great Escape are based in the north east and are available for hire across the U.K. and internationally.

The band were truly excellent - they did such a great version of our first dance song and even let some of our pals jump up on stage later in the evening, to ruin a few classics haha! Thank you so much for making our wedding party so fun and being absolutely lovely!

Rebecca
Wedding, Low Hall The Lakes, Cockermouth
The Great Escape were AMAZING!!! Not only were they a fab band, they were also nice guys. Everyone at our wedding said how amazing they were and they totally nailed our first dance which was a little bit of an odd request. They had the whole venue bouncing and everyone on their feet dancing. They really were fantastic and kept the vibe going all night. Loved them and would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you for suggesting them!
