What We'll Do At Your Wedding


Arrival, set up and soundcheck

Load in, set up and soundcheck takes around 90minutes at the latest, we usually get everything done within the hour.

At 18:00 (unless you've opted for early arrival) we'll unload the van and set up our gear as quickly as possible. We'll meet and greet the venue staff/organisers before we get on with the soundcheck.

A soundcheck is vital, testing that our equipment is all in order and that the sound levels we are playing at are just right. It is also important to avoid any unwanted battles with sound limiters at the venue. Please read this blog to read more.

 


After set up

Once we've loaded in, completed the sound check, said hello to the venue/event staff/organisers and caught our breath, we'll head to our changing room (please provide us with a lockable room!) to slip into our stage clothes and have a meal and drink some soft drinks.

If for some reason we don't have time to eat before the show starts, please make sure we have some food arranged for the start of our first break.

 

 

1st live set & first dance

When you're ready and we're ready we can get on with the show. The first set of 60mins typically begins with the first dance. Shortly afterwards your guests you will be joining you on the dance floor to rock out!

After the first 60mins, we will take a short break. During this break we'll head back to the changing room for a rest and to have some refreshments.

During the break one member of Bandit will make sure there is still music playing through our PA. They will either leave a playlist running (standard service) or man the laptop to take requests (upgrade).


2nd live set & end of the night

At around 10-10:30pm we'll be ready to come back on stage to entertain you for what will be a unforgetable final set of rock pop and indie music.

We hope you're ready for us because we really go for it for the last hour, giving you an experience you won't forget for a long, long time.

If we finish before midnight, we will put the laptop back into action until midnight. If you have chosen the upgrade for a later finish we'll carry on until the agreed time!

At the end of the night it's likely we'll chat with guests then pack away. It usually takes us an hour to discreetly pack up and be back on the road.
