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@skip-jacks-band.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that The Skip Jacks 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

The Skip Jacks 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 The Skip Jacks 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.

The Skip Jacks 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 The Skip Jacks to perform at your wedding please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@skip-jacks-band.co.uk.

The Skip Jacks are based in London and available to hire in the South East area including Sussex, Kent, Essex, Hampshire, Berkshire as well as the South West such as Bristol, Southampton, Gloucestershire, Cotswolds plus the Midlands, CambridgeshireEast Anglia, Suffolk as well as further afield in the UK and internationally.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Evie & Jamie
Wedding
Please can you pass on our heartfelt thanks to each member of the The Skip Jacks...they were absolutely amazing on our wedding day last week and made the whole day! They were so professional and efficient with their set up, they looked the part, played fantastically and got everyone dancing! When there was an issue with the venue's speaker they re did our first dance later on so that we could hear it properly, this was greatly appreciated and gave a whole different feel to the dance. I will highly recommend them to everyone after a band, I'm just trying to think of the next event I can hold to justify booking them! Thank you again for making the organising of the band so easy. Thank you!

We just wanted to reach out and send a special thanks to you and the The Skip Jacks. The band were absolutely incredible on the day - our wedding party had the best time! We have had so much feedback from our guests that they were the best band/wedding band they have ever seen! They kept all our guests, no matter what their music taste, on the dance floor all night and that is something truly magical. I hope they enjoyed the island also! If I ever need a band for anything I will definitely be reaching out! Big thanks again and take care.

I just wanted to send you a few words of thanks to pass on to The Skip Jacks. It's two weeks since the wedding and I'm still hearing from people about how brilliant they were. I know they stepped in at relatively short notice but no one guessed. In fact, my now brother-in-law managed to have a 5 minute practice with them during the speeches, so he could sing Hallelujah with them for my wife and I. Really, they were very kind to let him do that and to play a few extra songs when the crowd were begging them not to stop at the end. I'll be selling them to every fiancé I know for a long while, in the selfish hope that I'll see them play again

The band were truly exceptional and everyone at the wedding was asking after them, we seriously could not have asked for any more...their youtube videos were great but if anything we felt they were better live. I can only apologise that we didn't get to speak with them after their set ended, we wish we had managed to get to thank them personally but it was all a bit of a blur at the end. The music the band performed was just perfect, we had a real mix of ages there and everone was impressed and catered for. The day was rounded off perfectly and I was personally dancing my ass off...I am glad the photographer left when she did or there may have been more evidence of that. heh heh! Anyway we would really appreciate it if you could pass our appreciation on to the band, and we would be more than happy to add our feedback should you have anywhere we can upload it? Thanks again and Kindest regards for making our special day so special.
