GET IN TOUCH!

From the start your enquiry will be dealt with by leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top live bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available 0800 564 2240 / info@lightyears-band.com and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that Light Years 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 (the amount varies from £270 to £330 depending on the package that you pay for) 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

Light Years 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 Light Years 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 two weeks’ notice of the song choice.

Light Years 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 Light Years to perform at your party please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@lightyears-band.com.

Light Years are based in the Kent area, and can travel comfortably to the likes of Maidstone, Gillingham, Dartford, Chatham, Ashford, Rochester, Margate, Tunbridge Wells, Canterbury, Dover, Ramsgate, Tonbridge, Herne Bay, Whitstable, Swanley, Essex and further afield.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Melene Locke

Thank you so much for making our day extra special. I was amazed that you had pulled off our first dance request from a turning a ballad into a rave! Everyone is still talking about it. We highly recommend these guys for any occasion!
Philip Gowing
Wedding
After being at wedding at which Light Years were the band, we knew straight away we needed them for our wedding. Tom and the guys are really professional, showed up on time, well turned out and played two amazing sets that really set the evening off. Prior to the day we met with Tom who was super accommodating with the style of music we where after, they even went above and beyond and learnt our 1st dance as it wasn't on there usual set list. I could not recommend them highly enough as band, great group of guys with a great sound.
Matthew Davies
Wedding
Thomas and Light Years played at our wedding at the East Quay Venue in Whitstable. It was ace. Our guests loved it and they played total bangers that had everyone dancing. A very professional setup that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend, my wife and I really thought having a live band took our celebrations to the next level.
