What do I need to provide for the band?
We're very easily pleased and simply ask for a secure room where we can get changed and leave our valuables, and a hot meal and cold drinks for four people to be provided.
How much space do you guys need?
Generally speaking, an area 3 metres deep by 6 metres wide is ideal but we have been known to squeeze into smaller spaces!
Can I choose which songs you play?
As part of our unique service, you are welcome to request the Beatles songs you'd love to hear played! Take a look at our repertoire and ask us not to forget your favourite ones! You can choose up to 28 songs with our Standard Option or up to 32 songs with our Premium Option. Please give at least one month's notice if you would like requests. Please note that we reserve the right to order the songs due to instrument changes and set balance, and the option to request songs does not apply to our 'Two Of Us' acoustic duo.
Do you bring your own gear?
All You Need Is The Beatles provide a self-contained service including a PAT tested PA system suitable for up to approximately 250 people and disco lighting. For larger venues a bigger PA can be hired for an additional fee.
What about a DJ or iPod disco?
Your choice of music can be played via your iPod, iPad or laptop through the band's PA before and in-between our sets for no extra charge, and after the last set finishes for an additional fee of £100 per hour.
Anything else I need to know?
Please note that All You Need Is The Beatles play loud rock music and cannot perform at venues where a sound limiter is in use. This restriction does not apply to 'Two Of Us'.
If you wish to proceed, subject to availability, we will send you a booking agreement drawn up in conjunction with the Musician's Union. We ask for a 15% cheque deposit with the balance paid in cash on the day of the event (prior to the performance) or by cleared cheque funds/bank transfer prior to the date of the event.
We love what we do and we will do our utmost to provide a service that exceeds your expectations. We are easy going and friendly guys, yet we remain extremely professional in our approach and we will endeavour to do all we can to make your event as hassle-free as possible. In return we simply ask to be treated with courtesy and respect.
