GET IN TOUCH!

From the start your enquiry will be dealt with by leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top live bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available 0800 564 2240 / info@lightyears-band.com and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that Light Years 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 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

Light Years 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 Light Years 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.

Light Years also offer a brilliant live lounge-style acoustic set, this is the perfect addition to your welcome drinks and can really help set the mood for a great party. As the musicians are already booked to perform at the event, the price of this set represents excellent value when compared to hiring a separate band for your drinks reception entertainment - it can be as much as 50% cheaper than hiring an equivalent act.

To discuss hiring Light Years to perform at your party please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@lightyears-band.com.

Light Years are one of Tailored Entertainment's roster of professional party bands for hire in the Kent area, and can travel comfortably to the likes of Maidstone, Gillingham, Dartford, Chatham, Ashford, Rochester, Margate, Tunbridge Wells, Canterbury, Dover, Ramsgate, Tonbridge, Herne Bay, Whitstable, Swanley, Essex, Brighton and further afield.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Jess & Dom
Wedding, Kingdom, Kent
Light Years were amazing! Arrived on time for our wedding reception, sound-checked and all ready for the first dance. They played a BEAUTIFUL rendition of a very meaningful song, and then ROCKED the rest. Had a lot of musician friends who were stunned by their arrangements, and they kept the party buzzing all evening! So much love for these guys :)
David
Anniversary Party, The Old Brewery Store, Kent
We were blown away by how amazing the band was. Nobody left the dance floor all night because there wasn't a song that you wanted to miss. Amazing performance, would 100% recommend and would pay to see in the future. Thank you so much! Made our party so special and one that will be remembered by all our guests for a long time. One guest even said that they wanted to cancel their wedding band and rebook the Light Years!
Adam
Wedding, Upwaltham Barns, Sussex
The band (Light Years) were absolutely awesome. We loved them, and we were so touched of their version of our first dance song. It was honestly so memorable. Everyone absolutely loved them, and had multiple comments along the lines of ‘best wedding band they’ve ever seen’. As well, I think a few friends have tried to contact them for their own weddings!
Lewis & Sophie
Wedding, Clapton Country Club, London
Light Years were incredible! Their set was brilliant, and they played our special request song perfectly. The band members were so personable and really made us feel special on our wedding day. They even came back for an encore! Thanks again for making the day even more special.
Philip
Wedding, Langar Hall, Nottinghamshire
Light Years were brilliant. They turned up on time and performed everything we asked, in some cases twice. And prepared a few special requests as well. Great sound and great performance! Thanks.
