How much does Urban Blue cost?
Send us an email at email@example.com for a quote. Please include the date and location of your function and any other relevant details.
When is payment due?
A 25% deposit will book your date, and the balance is due 14 days before the day of the engagement.
What do the musicians need?
Our musicians may have travelled long distances to reach you, so they’ll require a hot meal when they arrive at the venue and soft drinks to keep up their energy levels.
As they’ll be bringing electrical equipment, a power supply is also essential.
How long do you play for?
We usually play for 3 x 45 minute sets or 2 x 65 minute sets over a 2˝ - 3 hour period. Please let me know if your requirements are different.
Do you play recorded music during your breaks?
Yes, we play music from CD. If you prefer you can provide your own CD's or iPod.
Can you provide music for dancing in the evening as well as background music during the day?
Yes, this is something we do regularly. Please see www.urbanbluemusic.co.uk for details.
How much space do you need?
Probably less than you think, approximately 3.5m x 2.5m for the trio. We are adept at fitting into unusual spaces!
Can you play outside
We can play outside, but will need to have the option of cover in case of rain or excessive heat as our equipment is easily damaged.
How long do you take to set up?
It usually takes us about 40 minutes to set up, and we aim to arrive an hour before the performance. If you would like us to arrive earlier to set up this is usually possible but may involve a small extra 'waiting fee'.
How far do you travel?
Usually within approximately 2 hours of London. We will consider playing further away, but you may need to provide accommodation and travel expenses.
Can we come and see you live?
Nearly all of our gigs are weddings and private functions, so unfortunately it's not usually possible.
What if I have to cancel?
No problem - with enough notice we may be able to secure another booking and refund some of your deposit.
Have Urban Blue ever had to cancel?
No. If one of the band is taken ill, we have plenty of backup musicians and singers available.
What do I need to do to book?
Just fill out a booking form and send it to us with a 25% deposit by cheque or BACS payment. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a booking form, which includes payment details.
