Can I see the party band or singer perform live before I proceed and book?

While we totally understand this, it is not always practical or possible. We can only provisionally hold a date for any of our bands or entertainers for a few days. Our party bands and singers perform at many parties and functions throughout the UK and these may not be open to the public due to them being private events. It may be a few weeks or even months before they have a booking which is open to the public, by this time the party band you want may not be available on your chosen date and we do not want any of our clients to be disappointed.

At Quinn Artistes Entertainment the singers, and bands we represent and actively promote are carefully selected, not only are they of a very high standard, super talented, they are reliable, both when performing on stage and off stage they are polite and helpful. Your entertainment advisor will honestly and professionally advise and recommend the party band or singer who are most suitable for your party.

Do you have any unusual party entertainment ideas?

Yes we have an eclectic mix of all kinds of entertainers, from digital iPad caricaturists, who draw onto their iPad and email the images to each person at your party or Mariachi bands who can perform contemporary songs in their own fantastic Mexican way, surprise singing waiters are always a massive hit at parties, we have quirky stilt walkers, living statues, living tables to serve drinks at your welcome reception party and wonderful close up magicians!

How do I know that the singer or band that I choose is the one I will see at my party?

Simple, everything you see and hear on our website is who will perform at your party. Unlike some rogue websites, Quinn Artistes Entertainments DO NOT under any circumstances falsely advertise entertainers, take a booking and then deliberately send a poorer standard version.

Personnel in bands do change from time to time and we are vigilant in maintaining our knowledge of each individual band and group members. If a member change does not alter the quality of the party band then we will continue to permit the band to honour existing bookings. If the band has a major change of line up i.e. a singer is replaced we will review the band and advise any client with an existing booking, that there has been a significant change and consequently either reassure them to continue with the booking or recommend replacing with a quality alternative party band or performer.


If I book a party band or live singer with Quinn Artistes Entertainment, how secure is my booking?

When you book a party band with us you have the security and peace of mind knowing that you are dealing with a professional company that has been established for over 10 years. Quinn Artistes entertainment was established by professional entertainers, who have worked on every entertainment stage, both in the UK and abroad. Every year we supply live entertainment to thousands of party events, corporate functions, venues and weddings. Quinn Artistes Entertainment provides industry approved contracts. These contracts are legally binding and cannot be cancelled except in the case of a fatality, illness, force majeure, war, act of god etc. Full terms will appear on the contract.

Why book with Quinn Artistes Entertainment and not directly with the party band or entertainer?

There are many beneficial reasons to secure your party entertainment with us. Other essential points to consider and common misconceptions are that party bands are not necessarily cheaper by booking directly! They may be performing many bookings with us per year and therefore we have buying power to secure the most competitive price and loyalty.

Our office is a full-time structured organisation that books and deals with party bands and party entertainer in a professional capacity every day of the year. The performers we represent have a responsibility to us when performing at the bookings we provide them with to uphold our reputation and to adhere to our codes of conduct. A direct booking with a band may not be contracted, which could lead to at the minimum confusion or even worse them not turning up or cancelling to accept a better/higher priced booking.

We are full members of the largest trade association of its kind (The Agents’ Association of Great Britain) and as such adhere to a strict code of conduct. For security, peace of mind, quality and professionalism, book your party entertainment through Quinn Artistes Entertainment.

What happens if the party band or party entertainers cancels due to illness/accident?

This is unlikely; however, this cannot be ruled out. Firstly, full evidence from the entertainer or party band – example – medical note, breakdown report etc would be required from the band within 7 days. Secondly, we have a superb network of live party bands and entertainers and will utilise our experience and contacts to enable us to offer a similar standard live party band or entertainer as a replacement. We operate a full emergency standby service till 9pm, 365 days of the year, where an entertainment advisor will do everything possible to provide the best solution to any situation that may occur.

Can I speak with the band directly before my party?

Once you have booked your party entertainment with us, you can update us at any time with any additional information, for example timings. These will all be forwarded and confirmed with the party band or entertainer and we will confirm these details with you. If you would then like to speak directly with the band or entertainer, then this can be arranged a few weeks before the party.


Do I have to pay a deposit for the entertainment at my party?

In order to secure your booking, we will require a small deposit (usually approximately 15% of the total fee). If the party band or party entertainer cancels due to illness/accident/fatality we will seek to offer a suitable, replacement band or entertainer(s). If you decide not to accept the replacement(s) offered, then we will refund 50% of your deposit paid. The remaining 50% deposit balance will be retained by Quinn Artistes Entertainment towards our administration costs.
