In most instances, Vibetown tend to arrive at an event to set up at around 6pm and this is what all personal quotes allow for.

Clients can also requests for the band to arrive earlier to set up before the wedding breakfast or whenever is of best convenience for them. Again, an additional cost will be charged for this.

How Far Will Vibetown Travel?
Even though Vibetown are a Leeds based band, they are not limited to just Yorkshire and the surrounding areas. The band have previously played at functions, corporate and wedding gigs as far afield as Cornwall, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and even in Europe! Here’s a list of previously covered areas…
- Cumbria and The Lake District
Put simply, Vibetown are willing to travel anywhere you’d like us too. If we’re available then we’re definitely up for it!
Why Book Vibetown?
A good question! You will not just be paying for the details as listed above, but for a professional collectively who between them, have tens of years of experience under their belts. The musicians involved are all first class players that have spent years practising, studying and honing their craft. The production company Vibetown works with specialise in event design and provide audio/visual equipment to the highest standard. With over 20yrs of experience in delivering large scale productions, these guys know what they are doing. You will be paying for the best and the best is what you will get!
1. Do I need to provide accommodation for the band?
This is only required for long distance journeys of 2.5hrs or more from Leeds were the band are based. In most instances, the accommodation costs are included in the bands fee and organised by them unless stated other wise, or if some other arrangement has been made between Vibetown and the Client.
2. Do the band provide a separate DJ & how does the iPod Disco work?
Vibetown do not provide a separate DJ as such, but do provide an iPod Disco service which is included in the price. This service is run on the night intermittently by the band and guests are welcome to make requests.
3. How likely is the band line up to change on the night?
As mentioned in the Band’ page, Vibetown is a collective entity of some of the UK’s top session and professional musicians and is made up from a large selection of regular players. On occasion, not all band members are available for gigs due to touring commitments with named artists such as Westlife, Pixie Lotte and Olly Murrs to name but a few. In this instance, another regular player will be drafted in to replace some one for the gig. All players are fully rehearsed up to the standard you would expect and always deliver an exceptional performance!
4. What does it mean when the contract states that the band are to be provided with food and drink?
Vibetown work long hours and drive long distances to travel to gigs, often not getting home until the early AM long after the party has ended and the guests have all gone to bed! In light of this, it would be appreciated if the band could be provided with a suitable meal after set up and soundcheck and before the main evening performance. This can be in the form of a food buyout from the venue (at the expense of the client) or for the band to be included in the main evening food arrangements that the guests are taking part in.
Soft drinks, teas and coffees are also appreciated. Its usually best for the client to organise a small tab for the band with a limit of £50 – £60 on. This tends to be the easiest arrangement all round. Please make sure the bar staff are aware of this. This is a standard request for the majority of Function Bands available for Weddings & Parties.
5. What substitutes as a suitable changing room/area for the band?
Most venues we play tend to have a conference room or spare communal area that is perfect for the band to store personal belongings and to get changed in ready for the evenings performance. Anything like this would be fine with us! Please ensure that the room is heated, has access to electrical sockets and mirrors also.
Please bear in mind that toilets, sheds, tents or drafty out door places aren’t suitable changing areas. We realise that it isn’t always possible to accommodate these requests due to any number of reasons, so we are happy to compromise and come to a suitable solution. Just please don’t put us in a drafty shed!
6. How negotiable is the size of the stage area?
A min of 4.5m x 4.5m stage space is stated in the contract, but in reality we can be flexible on this. Please bear in mind though, the more space we have the better the performance and more comfortable we feel. Standing on each others toes isn’t an ideal situation, especially if you want us to blow the roof off!
7. Do you prefer cash or cheque, and if the latter whom is the cheque made out too?
Either form of payment is fine and we can discuss this before the date. All cheques are made payable to ‘Vibetown’.
8. Do you provide staging?
Vibetown do not provide staging. This is the responsibility of the venue to provide this where possible.
9. How much Input do we have regarding the set list?
You are welcome to request songs for the band to play on the night and we are even happy to perform songs that don’t feature in our regular repertoire, but we can only accommodate such requests to a point. For example, the band would be unable to learn 2hrs of brand new material just for one gig and scrap their usual song list.
Most clients tend to make around 5 song requests per gig and the running order should be left for the band to decide. The band have now done well over 500 gigs and are well versed in reading the audiences reaction to see what does and doesn’t work…. and every audience is different!
Song choice and order can change on the night in order to get the best results (eg – everyone up having a good time!). Clients are welcome to give general direction such as ‘play more funk and soul than modern pop’ or ‘Include more rockier material’ etc.
There is nothing worse than a band that blindly charges through a set list regardless of whether people like it or not, that’s why you should book a highly experienced and professional Band like Vibetown 😉
10. Can Vibetown perform our first dance?
Yes! The band are happy to perform your first dance, but please make sure that whatever it is suits the instrumentation and line up of the band.
Vibetown do around 100 gigs per year and have performed at over 500 events from weddings and corporate events to private parties and functions. Due to this, we have amassed a lot of contacts and have worked with some of the very best people in the industry in their respective fields.
