Blueprint Party and Wedding Music

BluePrint are a Live Band consisting of a talented professional duo performing rock and pop covers from the last five decades. We have a play list that includes some of the biggest recent hits and many classic songs. We are entertaining, lively and always involved with our audience. Need a particular song? We can do that.

Are you looking for a live band for your wedding entertainment, or a live band for a private party, club night, music venue, ball or corporate event? Then you have found the right place! We can provide top class music to get everyone in the mood and up singing and dancing!

Blueprint have performed at 100′s of weddings around the UK and abroad over the last 3 years.

What makes Blueprint unique is their ability to constantly update their Repertoire to include all the latest dance floor hits from the current decade, as well as performing all the classics from the 50’s through to the 00’s.

If you’re wedding venue is limited with its performance area, Blueprint duo take up very little space, and are able to fit into a much smaller surface area than a full live band.

Many wedding venues now have sound limiters installed to monitor the level of noise created by live music entertainment. Many venues have these meters set so low it is virtually impossible for a live band with acoustic drums, and guitar amplifiers to perform at such a low noise level, without the performance being severely compromised. Blueprint duo have only live vocals and guitar with the rest of the instruments on backing tracks, which makes the noise levels much easier to control than a full live band.

From the moment your evening guests arrive, you can be safe in the knowledge that the entertainment part of the wedding reception will be seamless, with no awkward gaps between songs in the live performance, and a smooth seamless transition to the IPod playlist or Guy’s DJing service (if opted for) in between the live music.

Blueprint duo will liaise with you efficiently and promptly through all stages of the booking process, 1st dance and song choices, and logistical details of your big day.

You can be confident in the knowledge you have booked an experienced, talented,and highly professional duo who will have all your wedding guests on the dance floor and talking about your wedding entertainment for years after the event.

Why are Blueprint the perfect band to hire for my Event?

Blueprint offer the same quality of  performance as a larger band, and using professionally mastered backing tracks to add to the live musicians we produce a big lively sound.

 So you still get a big performance but at a lower price. Perfect for more intimate venues.

Blueprint – FAQ

My venue has a sound limiter, is this ok?

Yes, a lot of venues have these now and we are able to control our sound levels.

What if a band member is ill and can not make it?

All musicians are self employed. It is very rare that any of them would willingly pull out of a gig, but if they are extremely unwell, as you will see from our musician’s page, we have a pool of talented musicians and singers that work regularly with us and are all familiar with the bands repertoire.

Do you have public liability insurance?

Yes, we have worldwide Public Liability Insurance for £10million. Please contact us if you need any further details.

Can I choose the set list?

Part of our job as professional performing musicians is to know which songs work. You are welcome to choose songs from our repertoire list which you would like included and we will try to play as many of those requests as possible, but we need to know this at least one month in advance so the set list can be planned.

Will the band play the first dance at our wedding?

Yes. We do however require one month’s notice of what the song will be so all of the musicians can learn it. Sometimes with certain songs, the recorded versions have full orchestral backings which are quite hard to reproduce with a 5 piece band, so therefore may be a better idea to play the original version from cd or iPod. But this is something we can discuss with you.

Why does the band need a changing room?

The band will be on site for many hours. A changing room is necessary for a number of reasons; they need somewhere to change into their stage clothes, have a place where they can prepare for the performance, keep their personal belongings and keep out of the way of your guests! There needs to be somewhere to sit down, with lighting and a mirror is appreciated too.

Will you provide music whilst the band is not playing?

Yes, music will be provided from an iPod in between the live sets. It’s a very crowd pleasing playlist, with lots of well know pop and rock classics to keep the dance floor busy. If you are looking for music to be played during your meal or buffet we have a few more laid back playlists which will do the trick. Please feel free to ask for a track listing. If you would like to compile your own playlists on your own iPod, that is not a problem, bring it along and we can plug it in to our PA system.

Can I use your microphone for speeches?

Yes, that’s not a problem as long as we know about it in advance so we can set one up for you.

Will the band turn up on time?

Yes, the band always leave plenty of travel time to get to your event. We are one of the busiest wedding bands in the UK, but regardless of how busy we are or have been prior to your event whether it is a wedding, party, corporate, ball, or military event we will always be punctual.We know it will be stressful enough for you without having to worry about that.

What payment methods can I use to pay the final balance?

You can pay the balance in advance by bank transfer of personal cheque. Or on the night by personal cheque or cash.

What payment methods can I use for my deposit?

You can pay the deposit either by a bank transfer, or by personal cheque.

Does the price include your travel expenses?

The price we quote includes everything, from petrol, to accommodation if needed.

Can I see the band perform before I decide to book?

No not normally. Most of our performances are at private weddings, parties, corporate, and military events.We occasionally have public gigs, so please do ask if we have any coming up. You can however see us in action in the videos on this page.

If I want a separate DJ and/or another band will they be able to use your sound equipment?

It may be possible, but they will have to contact us in advance so we can discuss it and we will charge them a small fee.

What if the band does not turn up to my function?

We can assure you this will not happen, it never has yet. All of the Musicians that make up the band are professional and we have been performing together for the last 10 years. We have a reputation to uphold.

Will the band supply their own sound equipment and lights?

Yes, all quotes are fully inclusive of a sound system and lighting. Our lights will not only light up the band but your dance floor as well. All the equipment is PAT tested and safe. A certificate can be shown if required.

Does the band need a stage?

No. As long as there is an area we can fit comfortably in to. Usually the minimum space a 5 piece band needs is 4 metres wide by 3 metres deep.

Do you play requests?

Yes. If there is one or two songs you particularly want played, as long as you give us at least one months notice so all the musicians can learn the material.

Do I need to feed the band?

Yes. On a typical performance day most musicians leave home in the early afternoon and do not return home until the early hours of the following morning. Therefore, wherever possible soft drinks and a hot meal is appreciated.

Do you offer a DJ service?

Yes, at a slight additional cost, please ask for a quote. Our DJ service can offer additional benefits; we can take requests, interact with the audience and have a much wider playlist with no gaps in between the songs.

How long does the band play for?

Our standard performance time is 3 x 45 minute sets. This is what all standard quotes are based on. If you would like something different, just ask and we will give you a quote.

Will the band be professional on stage?

Yes, always. As we are all professional and experienced musicians and this is our livelihood, we are always on our best behaviour! We will all be driving ourselves to your event as well, so we stick to soft drinks.

If I pay on the day of the event when should I pay you?

It’s often easier for both parties if payment is made before the band plays or after the first set. The last thing you will want to worry about at the end of your event is paying everyone.

Why does the band charge extra for turning up early or playing after midnight?

Musicians are used to working long days, however if you need us to set up our equipment early before your guests arrive, or want us to play very late there is a small charge for our extra time.

I want to book, what do I need to do?

Call or e-mail us for a quote. Once a price is agreed I will post you two copies of a contract. You will need to sign and date both copies, keep one and return the second to me, along with your deposit cheque which is normally for 25% of the full fee. The contract is beneficial for both of us, so you know you have a guaranteed booking and that we know you definitely want us to play at your event and therefore will take no other enquires for that date.

You have quoted me more than another wedding band, why should I book you?

If you book us you are guaranteed to get a band that turn up with quality professional musicians, liability insurance and state of the art sound and lighting equipment. A lot of cheaper bands can be part-timers with ‘bedroom’ musicians, no insurance or contracts and if someone falls ill they may not have replacement members. If you book us you get a great show and peace of mind.
