Questions or concerns

Once you’ve decided we’re the right band for you, you can rest assured that your entertainment is in good hands. We’ll be in touch around 3 weeks before the big day to finalise the details, timings, song choices and any other queries you may have. In the run up to your event, you’ll have a dedicated event coordinator from our agency Alive Network who will be more than happy to liaise with you on any issues, questions or concerns.


At Your Wedding

A standard wedding gig for The Sparks starts with our prompt arrival at your venue (usually 5 or 6pm). We load in our equipment, set up and sound check as quickly and discreetly as possible. This usually takes us around 60 minutes.

After the soundcheck

After we’ve set up and sound checked we will put background music on through our PA system and go to change into our stage clothes. You will need to arrange for the venue to provide us with a secure changing room (not the toilets), and your catering to provide us with a hot meal and soft drinks/tea/coffee. This is standard for all wedding bookings for any band. If we can't eat before the first set (EG: the event is behind schedule and we need to perform right away) - then we'll eat during our first break.

1st live set

After our first live set, we'll take a break (usually around 45 minutes) and for weddings, this is the ideal time to serve the buffet. During this time we'll leave a play list of carefully chosen music running in the background through our PA system. If you choose our DJ upgrade option, a member of the band will run the DJ rig and be on hand to take requests and make announcements.

First Dance

Due to schedules often slipping out on the day, we will liaise with you or the event manager at your venue to confirm the timing of your first dance. We will be ready to DJ your chosen track or perform it if possible (if arranged in advance).

2nd live set & end of the night

After our second live performance, if we have finished before midnight, we will provide background music until midnight (unless you've selected a later finish upgrade). Only after our official contracted finish time will we pack our equipment down. We will do this as quickly and discretely as possible - which usually takes around 1 hour.
