What time do you play?

We can play our sets any time to suit you. Most weddings tend to happen between 8pm and midnight. A good guide would be…

  • 8:20pm – 9:00pm: First set and first dance.
  • 9:00pm – 10:00pm: Evening food with recorded music or DJ.
  • 10:00pm – 10:45pm: 2nd set.
  • 10:45pm – 11:10pm: Break with recorded music
  • 11:10pm – midnight: 3rd set.

This sort of thing tends to work best but we can be completely flexible during this time and can play it by ear not the night if needs be. Nothing needs to be set in stone unless you want to.

We fill all the gaps with recorded pre-prepared playlists so don’t worry there won’t be any downtime.

How long do you play for?

We can perform 3 x 45 minute live music for dancing in the evening with recorded music between sets. We can also add an hours more background music set if you like which is perfect for during dinner, drinks reception or the photo hour.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

Yes, to fit with most UK wedding venues regulations we have fully PAT certified equipment and insurance.

Can you perform a request?

Yes, we include one request in our quote. You can use this a first dance or perhaps another special request to finish the night.

We tend to learn any requests in the week before the wedding but it’s best to let us know about a month in advance of the date.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?

The band require a hot main meal and soft drinks tab on the night. It can be a long day, from packing the car before leaving home to unpacking when we get back, without much time for us to grab some food so meals need to be provided.

Let us know if there is a problem and we may be able to sort something.

“The band were very pleasant and easy to deal with on the night of our wedding, the singing was fantastic along with the other pieces of the band, everybody that evening and the following days commented about the band. Their version of Ben 'E' King as our wedding dance was also memorable. Overall, a beautiful wedding, daytime followed by an exceptional evening with the music provided.”

"The guys were absolutely fantastic from start to finish. I genuinely did not expect them to have everyone dancing from the first song until the very last! The sets flowed to perfection and they created the most perfect atmosphere for a wedding reception enabling guests to really relax after an afternoon of formalities and let themselves go! Surprisingly they managed to capture the attention of all ages groups from teenage guests to their grandparents (priceless memories). Their professionalism shone throughout the evening and we are now wondering what we can plan so we can book them again! We can't thank them enough for helping us make memories to last a lifetime."

"I just wanted to let you know that we were really pleased with our choice of Roaming About to play at our wedding. They were so much fun and the quality of their music was brilliant. They were professional and reliable and also put up with the groom insisting he wanted to be on stage (repeatedly)! Please thank all of the lads from us for making the evening of our wedding such a success. Everything ran very smoothly and we didn’t need to worry about anything. All of the guests (of all ages) have been saying how brilliant they were. Thanks for all of your helping leading up to the day too."

"These guys were the band providing great music and entertainment at my son’s wedding. The mix of tunes catered for all ages and the final song of Chasing Cars was the best I’ve ever heard. True chemistry between the group with fantastic lead vocals and a band that can really bring an event of any kind to life."
