Frequently Asked Questions

We receive several e-mail/telephone enquiries every day. To streamline the booking process, we have answered some of our most commonly asked questions below. 

What Must The Venue Provide? 

If you choose our standard 3 piece show, our requirements are very simple:

  • A  good sized, level stage surface (ideally about 4m wide by 3m deep).

  •  a minimum of two double 13-amp mains sockets on stage.

  • a secure, lockable changing room with ample space and seats for the band to spend time in and change. Ideally the room should also include a full length mirror, a table, several mains sockets and bathroom facilities.

Our larger packages require a larger stage area and a minimum of two large changing rooms (specified as above)

  • Access:- We will need access to the performance area to set up/sound check equipment from around 4pm on the day of the performance.

  • Parking:- We require adequate, safe parking for vehicles, as near as possible to the access door to the performance room. 

Do you provide music for the whole event? 

We are more than happy to play unmanned background disco music before our first set, during the interval and for a short time after our second set (while our equipment is discreetly dismantled). For a small extra fee, we can provide a separate DJ to play a mixture of disco classics and current chart hits to keep your audience on the dance floor all night.  We are equally happy if a client sources a DJ themselves. However, we must ask that:

  • the DJ provides their own PA system and lighting rig as our insurance explicitly forbids anyone other than us to use our sound/lighting equipment.

  • the DJ should be instructed not to play any 1980s music (including background music) before, during or after the event without first checking that it does not feature in our setlist.

  • the DJ must not set up any of their equipment on the stage area used by the band. Also, they should ensure that they do not use any mains sockets required by the band and their crew. 

How much does it cost to book The Electric 80s Show?
