How much do The Ukes cost?
Contact us for a quote. Please include the date and location of your function and any other relevant details.
When is payment due?
A 50% deposit at the time of booking will book your date, and the balance is due on the day of the engagement.
What do the musicians need?
If you require the band to play outside we’ll need adequate cover from the elements. As they’ll be bringing electrical equipment (unless you want them ‘roving’ and acoustic), access to a power supply is also essential.
Are the musicians in the video the ones who will play at my event?
As you’ll see from our various videos and photos, the line up for the Ukes does change and vary from time to time. This is so that we have ‘strength in depth’ and can therefore be sure to fulfil your booking regardless of whether one of the team is taken ill or unavailable.
How long do you play for?
We usually play for 2 x 60 minute sets. We are flexible and can quote for more and less performing.
Do you play recorded music during your breaks?
Yes, we play music from an MP3 player. If you prefer you can provide your own music, but please inform us in advance so we can preprare for any potential technical issues.
Can you play at our wedding ceremony/drinks reception/dinner as well as providing music for the evening?
Yes, this is something we do regularly. Please email us with your requirements. You may prefer to have a smaller option earlier in the day (e.g. a soloist or duo) and have the rest of the band perform in the evening.
How much space do you need?
Probably less than you think, approximately 5m x 4m for the full 4-piece band. We are adept at fitting into unusual spaces! A stage isn’t necessary (although it’s a bonus if you do have one). We can also play outside – see above.
How long do you take to set up?
Depending on the technical requirements 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?
We play anywhere and everywhere! We are often to be found within 2 hours drive of London, although we regularly play further away as well, for which we may require provision for accommodation and travel expenses. Get in touch and let’s see what we can do!
Can we come and see you live?
Yes of course! Most of our events are private functions, but The Ukes are regaularly playing public events around the Buckinghamshire area. Please contact us for details of suitable events.
What if I have to cancel?
No problem – however unfortunately we can only guarantee a full refund of your deposit if we’re able to secure another booking.
Have The Ukes of Hazzard 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?
We’ll send a booking form which you’ll complete and return with a 50% deposit by cheque or BACS payment. Please email email@example.com for a booking form, which includes payment details.
