BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that The Rustiques 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 £300 - £405 (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

The Rustiques 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 The 505s 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.

To discuss hiring The Rustiques to perform at your party please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email iinfo@vintageweddingentertainment.com.

The Rustiques are based in the Hampshire area, and are hired all across the U.K. including Southampton, Salisbury, Portsmouth, Petersfield, Winchester, Guildford and more.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Richard Shimell
Wedding, Barnsdale Gardens, Rutland
Everything was very easy and simple to search for bands and to confirm a contract with the Rustiques. The timings took a few emails to confirm and clarify, but otherwise all good. The band were amazing and turned up and set up with no fuss, and started bang on time despite us being late. The two sets were played to an incredible standard and our venue was really happy with the band's professionalism during set up / take-down. We're really grateful to them for making the long journey and helping us host a superb evening.

The Band were brilliant. They were friendly, accommodating (even the dogs loved them!) and the guests all said how fantastic they were and how clever that the music just got better and better as the evening progressed. Thank you so much The Rustiques! I hope you get lots more bookings from a very happy audience! Thanks.
