Booking Keep The Faith for functions - FAQs:

What does the band provide?
KEEP THE FAITH provide everything for a full evening's musical entertainment. The band comes with a full sound system mixed by a sound engineer, lights and recorded music which can be played between sets. For functions and weddings, live dinner music can also be provided at an extra cost, and we can learn your choice of a first song if we don't already have it in our set.  We can play two hour long sets, or three of 40 minutes.

How loud do you play?
KEEP THE FAITH want their audiences to get up and dance to their music and that requires a certain volume.  But we always aim to play at a level appropriate to the venue and the occasion, at a volume with which the majority of the audience will be happy.

What does the client need to provide?
A minimum performance area of 6m x 3m, preferably a stage.   A safe supply of electricity terminating on or near the stage area. We'll need easy access to the venue, so, if appropriate, car parking spaces for a minimum of 3 vehicles should be made available. We'll need to change clothes before going on stage so a secure changing room, large enough for nine people would be appreciated. We must be included in any catering arrangements you make as we are likely to be at the venue for many hours. Our food does not need to be the same as the guests' but should be substantial, and we're happy to eat in a separate room from the guests. We will inform you of any dietary requirements in advance, if applicable.

How much do you charge?
KEEP THE FAITH have up to nine members of the band plus a sound engineer to be paid, travel expenses to be considered, plus accommodation costs if necessary (the band is based in and around Harrogate). We've also invested in thousands of pounds of equipment and many, many hours of rehearsal. While we may only play two hour long sets, remember that we have to arrive a couple of hours before a function begins to set up equipment and sound check, then wait until the end of the evening before packing up. But we can be reasonable and flexible. Speak to Brian on 07778 444648, give him the details of what you looking for, and he'll give you a competitive price.

What are the contractual arrangements?
On booking the band you will be sent a contract for signature. It will specify the date, time and venue for the function and the duration of the sets to be played by KEEP THE FAITH, plus any other agreed details. A deposit of 10% of the basic fee (excluding expenses) may be required on confirmation of the booking.  If the booking is subsequently cancelled, a sliding scale of cancellation charges may apply, depending on the proximity of the date of the function.

"What a cracking night of Northern Soul we had yesterday. Sarah's dazzling voice and stage presence, and a top-class band doing full justice to 30+ soul classics and a bit of bonus ska as well! Virtuoso horn trio, tight rhythm section, crisp Fred Perrys! One of the best nights we've had here at the town hall, come back soon!!! ... The band were even tighter than last year.  Sarah on fire and an audience totally up for it. -

Oh Boy!! You and the band were amazing at Oakengates, truly authentic sound.
