Wedding Entertainment Faqs

How do I choose the wedding entertainment to suit all of my guests and really make my wedding bespoke to us?

Our website contains hundreds of live bands that cover a wide variety of music from all over the UK. The majority of live wedding bands and wedding singers profiles contain photos, video clips, song lists, testimonials etc to help you in your search for the perfect live entertainment for your wedding.

Can I speak to an experienced entertainment advisor who can help me further in choosing my wedding entertainment?

Yes, we positively encourage this! Our office is open Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5.30 pm. All of the wedding bands and wedding entertainers on the website have been seen performing live (often many times) by a member of the booking team who will listen to your requirements, provide advice and recommend the most suitable live wedding entertainment

Can I see the wedding band or wedding 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 wedding bands and wedding singers perform at many weddings 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 wedding 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 wedding 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 wedding band or singer who are most suitable for your wedding.

Do you have any unusual wedding 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 wedding or Mariachi bands who can perform contemporary songs in their own fantastic Mexican way, Surprise Singing waiters are always a massive hit at weddings,  we have quirky tilt walkers, living statues, living tables to serve drinks at your welcome reception party and wonderful close up magicians!

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

Simple, everything you see and hear on our website is who will perform at your wedding. 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 wedding 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 wedding band or wedding singer.

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

When you book a wedding 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 wedding band?

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

 Our office is a full-time structured organisation that books and deals with wedding bands and wedding singers 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 wedding entertainment with us.

What happens if the wedding band or wedding entertainment cancels due to illness/accident?

This is unlikely; however, this cannot be ruled out. Firstly, full evidence from the entertainer or wedding band – example – medical note, breakdown report etc would be required from the band within 7 days. Secondly, we have a superb network of wedding bands and wedding entertainers and will utilise our experience and contacts to enable us to offer a similar standard wedding band or wedding 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 Wedding?

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

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

In order to secure your booking, we will require a small deposit (usually approximately 15% of the total fee).  If the wedding band or wedding 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.
