Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know about booking ‘The City Folk’.

How Much Do You Charge?

Because of the vast range of circumstances we have to take in to account (travel, dates, size of venue, PA requirements etc…) we do not have a fixed price. However, our prices do start from as little as £900. Please get in touch using the ‘Contact’ option on the navigation bar and we will give you an accurate quote within 2 hours


How Many Are In The Band?

There are three of us in the band. Bass, Guitars and Drums and we all sing.


How Long Does Set Up Take You?

About 40-50 minutes at a normal venue assuming there’s straight forward access.


Can We Pick The Set List?

It’s best to check that we play the kind of music that you’d like at your wedding before you book as we invariably pick our setlist on the night according to the crowd in front of us in order to maximise the number of people of your dance floor. We play 100+ weddings a year so we know what works! If you’d like to pick the tracks for the disco section, that’s absolutely fine but we don’t let people choose our set list.


Do You Carry Lighting & PA Equipment?

Yes, we carry a high end quality sound system which is loud enough to fill most wedding and party venues for numbers of up to 220 and we also provide standard stage and disco lighting. We aren’t able to bring our own stage but we are perfectly happy to play on the floor.


What Kind Of Power Do You Need?

We need 3 13amp (standard) plug sockets and we draw approx 3.5kW of power.


Are Noise Limiters An Issue?

They’re not ideal but more and more venues are having them installed so we’ve learned to cope with them. Just please make sure you let us know in advance!


With What Method Do I Pay?

The three payment options that we offer are our standard terms which is a 50% deposit payment with the balance due 28 days before the big day. Alternatively, we offer an easy, interest free, monthly payment plan where the balance is paid in equal monthly instalments between now and the month of your wedding. New for 2018, we now also offer a 4-stage payment plan. Payments are made by card or bank transfer. If you want to pay using the payment plan, it has to be done by card.


Are You Insured?

We certainly are! Most our hotel venues insist upon it so we have £10,000,000 public liability insurance.


Will Your Equipment Have PAT Certificates?

Yes and we’re happy to email them to the venue in before the event with our insurance!


Do You Do Requests?

We can always take requests for the Disco set but we’re not able to learn specific requests for the band set. We are able to learn first dance songs for a small charge if you’d like it performed live and it’s not in our existing repertoire.


Do You Have Any Other Requirements?

All we ask is that you’re able to provide soft drinks and a meal for each member of the band. If there’s an evening ‘buffet’, that normally means letting us join in with that.
