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@thevintagesound.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that The Daddy O's 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 (£300 - £405 depending on the optional extras you choose) 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 Daddy O's 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 Daddy O's 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 Daddy O's 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 Daddy O's to perform at your wedding please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@thevintagesound.co.uk.

The Daddy O's are based in the north area, and are hired all across the U.K. including, areas in the North East such as Newcastle, Sunderland, Grimsby, Hartlepool as well a wedding band that also play in Cumbria, Derybshire, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham and many more locations across the U.K.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Jonathan Farnan
Wedding, St George's Hall Liverpool, Liverpool
We were absolutely delighted with the Daddy O’s. We loved both of the sets (vintage & electric), and our guests have made similar comments about how much they enjoyed dancing along. Jesse was a pleasure to deal with re. the microphones for speeches. His chat in between songs was very entertaining and we appreciated you accommodating the last minute song request from Jonathan’s brother!(Sit down by James) We would also like to pass on our compliments to Erin at Tailored entertainment. Erin was a joy to deal with - she was very friendly and super responsive. She was accommodating in every request we made and we really appreciated her help. We wish you all the best for future endeavours! Thanks again.

A HUGE thank you to Tailored Entertainment and the Juno for providing a wonderful service. The service provided by Tailored Entertainment prior to our event was more than we could ever have asked for. Not only were they extremely friendly and a great help with suggestions for our party but absolutely nothing was too much trouble. The band gave an incredible performance at our event and definitely brought that extra special touch to our event. Our guests absolutely loved the variety of music and the band kept everyone dancing all night long. I would highly recommend both Tailored Entertainment and Juno and would certainly use their services again. Thank you again.

We had the most amazing day, and please could you thank the Daddy O's for us - we're sorry we couldn't say a proper thank you in person but we thought they were absolutely INCREDIBLE! All our guests loved them and everyone had such an amazing time. As a huge music fan myself having good live music was really important to me and the band completely surpassed my expectations, they were honestly the highlight of the day for me and for lots of the guests I'm sure. They were also so lovely and we're so grateful for them for travelling such a long way to be with us, I'm honestly still buzzing from such an amazing evening!

Wedding, Goose Farm, Worcestershire
We were so thrilled to have booked The Daddy O’s for our wedding. Live music was very important to us, and it’s always a big leap to book a band having not heard them play live, but as soon as Stand By Me (our first dance) started we knew that we loved them and both our minds were completely at ease. They were full of life and energy and did an excellent job at keeping the dance floor completely full (despite the very warm tipi). On arrival they were very friendly and just had to be shown where to set up, then after their set stayed to have a nice chat with us as well. Not only were they great at keeping everyone having fun but they are also an extremely talented group - we loved their unique takes on all our favourite songs and they truly helped to shape the fondest memories of our day. Would highly recommend again and again and again!
