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 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 on 0800 564 2240 / info@light-years-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 day 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 the wedding you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the day. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, first dance, 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.

If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the band would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening. If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) the band could arrive while you are eating to get set up (they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches!) - it takes a minimum of 90 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.

A guide to a standard evening reception would be:

  • 17:30 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On
  • 20:00 - First Dance/First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for evening buffet)
  • 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 your choice of first dance 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 drinks reception and can really help set the mood for a great celebration. As the musicians are already booked to perform in the evening, the price of this set represents excellent value when compared to hiring a separate band for your daytime entertainment - it can be as much as 50% cheaper than hiring an equivalent act.

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

Light Years are based 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 and further afield such as London, Brighton, Essex, Suffolk and many more locations.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

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.
Nick & Sophie
Wedding, Fulham Palace, London
The band were absolutely amazing and I would thoroughly recommend booking them if you like funky R 'n' B. They filled the dance floor and were fantastic accommodating our last dance request! Thanks so much for an amazing set.
Mary
Christmas Party, Queen Mary University, London
Honestly, I don’t know where to begin. When originally looking for a band for our party, I didn’t want a generic band. I was searching for days, and as soon as I heard Light Years, I knew they were the band for us. When I got to the venue and checked out the room, they were doing a sound check. It’s at that point I knew I could relax, their different sound is a winner. During the event, they got everyone dancing from the very first song, until the very last song. Ending on an absolute club banger! Who would have thought?! The day after, everyone in the office was asking how I found this band, and how amazing they were as they played all different genres, catering to all generations, but with their own little twist. I want to recommend this band to absolutely everyone. Book them now! And what an incredibly modest price they quote!
