How much do you cost?
Please get in contact with us with all the details of your event and we will be happy to give you an immediate quote. We cannot offer a fixed price chart on the website unfortunately, because there are so many variables to consider when making a booking.

What information do you need in order to give a quote?
To give an exact quote, we need to know the date and times of your event, the address of the venue, any special requirements of particular songs to learn, etc. (see below), and any extra costs which we'll need to cover (for example parking charges).

How long do you play for?
We typically provide 2hrs of live music, split into 2 x 1 hour sets, but other permutations can be arranged.

How much time do you take to set up?
We ideally need 2 hours to set up and sound-check. We will need space to work during this time, and it will be necessary for us to make some noise towards the end of this time (usually for the last 20 minutes or so).

If the room where we'll be playing is busy before we're scheduled to play (e.g. for dinner & speeches, etc.), we'll be more than happy to arrive early and set-up before that activity begins.

We'll also need sufficient time to load in our equipment. Especially where access into the venue and/or performance area is difficult (lot of lifts and stairs & long carrying distances, etc.), it's worth factoring this in to the schedule separately.

How much space do you need?
A minimum of 5m x 4m performance area. Either on a stage or at ground level. We also need access to at least 2 x 240 volt plug sockets.

Do you have all your own equipment?
Yes. The client does not need to provide any equipment for us whatsoever.

Do you have public liability insurance?
Yes, We have a £1 Million Public Liability Policy. All our equipment is PAT tested every year. Copies of the certificates are avaiable immediately upon request.

What other requirements do you have?
We require a room to change costume and store our belongings. Food and drink must be provided unless agreed in advance. Typically a hot meal for evening events, sandwiches etc. for daytime shows and soft drinks throughout (including bottled water during our performance). We need car parking spaces for 2 vehicles (if there is no public parking available), and access to load / unload our equipment beside the venue.

Do you ask for a deposit?
We require a 20% deposit to secure a booking. This must be received within one week of the booking being agreed. The deposit is non refundable. The balance must be settled by the end of the evening of the event without exception.

Can I come and see you perform before I make a booking?
We would be delighted for you to come and see us, however the majority of our performances are private (weddings, birthday parties, corporate events) and of course we generally can't offer open invitations to these events. We do play occasional public shows though, usually in London, so please get in touch and find out if there are any scheduled.

What happens if one of the band is unwell?
At VIVID we are aware that our performance is an essential part of your evening, and like any professional operation we have a professional replacement member for each band member, in case of illness or any other unfortunate circumstance that night prevent one of us from performing. The show must go on!

How far will you travel?
We are based in London, and we are happy to travel anywhere in the world to play, as long as we can cover the cost and time of the journey. Please contact us to get a quote based on your event location.

When will you arrive?
This will depend on the schedule of your event. We need enough time to unload our equipment and park our vehicles, and approximately 2 hours with access to the performance area to set up and soundcheck (see above). So this might mean we can arrive 2 and a half hours before our performance time, or it may be necessary to arrive earlier in order to get access to the performance space at a convenient time for you. We are happy to arrive as early as necessary in order to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Do you play music in the break?
Our Superstar lead vocalist, Amy is an experienced party DJ, and can programme an appropriate playlist to suit the mood to play through our sound system before and between sets. You're also welcome to provide your own CDs or playlists. We can also offer the services of a professional DJ who works with us regularly, subject to arrangement / fees. If you've already arranged your own DJ, no problem, we'll happily work together with them to make sure the entertainment runs to perfection.

Can I choose what you play?
We pride ourselves upon seamless transitions between songs, and the set-lists we provide have been structured to maximize the effect of the overall performance. For this reason we recommend you leaving us to what we know best, and letting us suggest an appropriate set list for your particular event, based on the information you've given us. This is not to say that you can’t request favourite songs from our repertoire and remove some that you don’t like. We're also happy to learn a song which isn't in our repertoire, such as a 'first dance' request for a wedding, or a favourite song for the birthday girl/boy or guest of honour. We will need some notice if you require us to learn a new song though, to make sure that we can get it to our usual standard of excellence in time!

If there's anything else you'd like to know, or discuss with us, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
