Questions or Concerns

Once you’ve decided we’re the right band for you, you can rest assured that your entertainment is in good hands. We’ll be in touch around 3 or 4 weeks before the big day to finalise the details, timings, song choices and any other queries you may have. In the run up to your event, you’ll have a dedicated event coordinator from our agency Alive Network who will be more than happy to liaise with you on any issues, questions or concerns.

What We'll Do At Your Wedding


Arrival, Set Up and Sound Check

Upon our arrival we will liaise with the venue/event manager and begin to load in, set up and sound check as quickly, quietly and discretely as possible. This takes about 90 minutes, 30 minutes of which are for saved for the 'sound check' which involves us playing our instruments live at full volume, in order to balance the sound and get the best possible live sound in your specific venue. 

We are happy to arrive and set up before your guests but we do charge an early arrival fee per hour before 5pm if you've booked our standard service.


After Set Up

After we’ve set up and sound checked we will put some background music on through our PA system and the stage room to change into our performance clothes. It is standard practice and etiquette to arrange our changing room and meal with the venue in advance of the event. If we don’t get a chance to eat before the first set (for example the event is running behind and we need to perform right away) - then we'll eat during our first set break. Soft drinks and water must be provided to the band for the duration of our stay at the venue.

1st Dance

The Sonics know just how important the first dance is. We offer to perform your first dance song at no extra cost as part of our standard wedding package if it is included in our repertoire. If we do not have your chosen song in our repertoire then we can play the recorded track through our sound system at no extra cost. Alternatively for an extra fee you can request we rehearse and learn your first dance song to be played live on your special day.

1st Live Set

After our first live set, we'll take a break (around 45 minutes) for weddings, this is the perfect time to serve the buffet. During this break we'll put on a playlist of carefully selected music in the background. If you chose our DJ upgrade option, a member of the band will man the DJ rig and be on hand to take requests and make announcements.


2nd live set & end of the night

After the second set if we finish before midnight, we will provide background music until midnight (unless you've selected the later finish upgrade). Only after our official contracted finish time will we pack our equipment down. Which we will do as quickly, quietly and discretely as we can - this usually takes around 1 hour or less.

We understand how important the evening entertainment is in capping off an already perfect day. We are proud of the level of service we have provided to countless satisfied clients but don’t just take our word for it, check out our recent testimonials below.
