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 on 0800 564 2240 / info@folkjunkiesband.com and will be very happy to hear from you.

Book the band:

Once you have decided that Folk Junkies 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 of (£315-£845 depending on the optional extras you choose) 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:

Folk Junkies 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. Folk Junkies’ standard price 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.

Folk Junkies 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 Folk Junkies to perform at your party please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240, or email info@folkjunkiesband.com

Folk Junkies are based in Surrey and available to hire as a professional party band for events in the UK and internationally. Popular locations include Basingstoke, Farnham, Isle of Wight, Winchester, Hampshire and Sussex.

Poppy Witts
Wedding, Dilton Vale Farm, Wilts
We booked the Folk Junkies for our tipi wedding back in June, well, what can I say that will possibly do justice for how fantastic they are! Not only are they sublime musicians they are also warm and kind people. They got everyone on the dance floor and kept them there. I would hire them over and over and over and over and over again!!! If their videos get you going you need to book them because they're even more incredible in real life! Nearly 2 months on from the wedding and we are still getting compliments and people talking about the band. The band spoke to some of the guests whilst they were on their intermission, and every single person they spoke with had nothing but compliments for genuine they are. They are just a super, cool, funky, fresh group of people! I cannot thank you guys enough for how you made my wedding incredible!
Will & Harriet Solomon
Wedding, Bonhams Barn, Alton
Just wanted to drop you a short message to say a MASSIVE thank you for playing so incredibly well at our wedding. Harriet and I always say that one of the most memorable aspects of any wedding is the band and you guys absolutely smashed it, really you made the day extra special. The dance floor was never empty which is a testament to you all! We have had countless comments and compliments from our guests, some even planning to contact you for their upcoming events/weddings!! Cannot thank you enough, we hope you also enjoyed it. Hopefully see you again soon - All the best for the future!
Mark & Seshi Hauser
Wedding, Court Farm, Somerset
The band were absolutely sensational. I'm probably a bit biased but I genuinely think they were the best wedding band I've ever seen. Joe, Paula and the guys were thoroughly decent, even waiting to make sure they didn't sound check during our speeches. The band / music could not have been any better.
