Hire the Band

The excitement and beauty of our music will transform your event into a memorable occasion. We do everything we can to make your day special. Our aim is to have your guests go home with a smile on their face.

We do everything we can to make sure that your event preparations are as smooth and trouble-free as possible.  Our Concert Manager will work with you to help ensure that all the arrangements are in place.  We bring the majority of equipment that we need with us including our own lit music stands.  We are also able to advise you on the hire of chairs, marquees and generators if necessary.

One of the great advantages of a Concert Band is that we are able to play outdoors.  Generally, it is best to have some sort of shelter in case of bad weather.  Depending on how many people you are expecting, we may be able to play without needing a public address system. However, if you are planning an event for a large number of people, or with fireworks, then we can arrange for the hire of a PA system with a professional company that we work with regularly.

If you would like a spectacular finale to your evening, then few things go down as well as a fireworks display.  We can recommend a pyrotechnics company who are skilled at coordinating their displays with our music.  We often play Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture at such events, but there are many other pieces in our repertoire that work just as well.

We are fortunate to be able to call upon a number of talented professional musicians if we plan to include solo pieces or simply need to augment our numbers.  Many of these “extras” play with London’s finest orchestras, but still enjoy coming along to help us out.

At the Eynsford Concert Band, we believe that it is not enough to sound good – we want to look good as well. We put a great deal of effort into the presentation of our performances.  Our conductor is happy to give a light-hearted introduction to each of the musical items and will vary the look of the band to suit the style of the music that we play.

The price that we charge to play at your event will be dependent upon the time, location, and the costs that the band has to incur.
