" Vibetown played at our daughter Elena's Bat Mitzvah Celebration here in Manchester on the 25th January............ Dan, Rob, Hanah, Laura, Matt and Mark were absolutely fantastic. They sounded great, looked great and all the guests enjoyed the music. What's more the band were more than happy to let Elena sing a number (Valerie) with them - which made the evening extra special for all of us. Dan was a pleasure to deal with when making the arrangements, Vibetown were wonderful - a five star rating from us....... Thanks again, Wayne & Rayne "

" Vibetown you are amazing!!! Stu and I would just like to say a huge thank you for playing at our Wedding evening reception on Saturday 21st June 2014 at the beautiful Mansion, Roundhay Park. You went down a storm and had everyone on the dance floor for the whole night. We can't praise you guys enough! You performed so many of our requests which was fantastic. There were so many great comments about you after our day, so you can be sure we will highly recommend you in the future. Thank you again for an awesome night!! Stu & Sarah Canning xx "

" A wedding reception for 130 guests in a marquee in Yorkshire in February was a risk and the rain and wind didn't let us down... Vibetown were absolutely brilliant though, nobody noticed the leaking tent, we danced all night and didn't want them to stop. They are completely professional, reliable and organised. They look and sound amazing. If you are searching for a band and need to be 100% sure that you won't be disappointed, book them. "

For your convenience we have put together a list of questions we are most frequently asked.
- Can Vibetown perform our first dance? ↓
Yes! The band are happy to perform your first dance, but please make sure that whatever it is suits the instrumentation and line up of the band.
- How much Input do we have regarding the set list? ↓
You are welcome to request tunes for the band to play on the night and we are even happy to perform songs that don’t feature in our regular repertoire, but we can only accommodate such requests to a point. For example, the band would be unable to learn 2hrs of of brand new material just for one gig and scrap their usual song list.
Most clients tend to make around 5 song requests per gig and the running order should be left for the band to decide. The band have now done well over 500 gigs and are well versed in reading the audiences reaction to see what does and doesn’t work…. and every audience is different!
Song choice and order can change on the night in order to get the best results (eg – everyone up having a good time!). Clients are welcome to give general direction such as ‘play more funk and soul than modern pop’ or ‘Include more rockier material’ etc.
There is nothing worse than a band that blindly charges through a set list regardless of wether people like it or not, thats why you should book a Function Band Available For Weddings & Parties like Vibetown ;)
- Do you provide staging? ↓
Vibetown do not provide staging. This is the responsibility of the venue to provide this where possible.
- What substitutes as a suitable changing room/area for the band? ↓
Most venues we play tend to have a conference room or spare communal area that is perfect for the band to store personal belongings and to get changed in ready for the evenings performance. Anything like this would be fine with us! Please ensure that the room is heated, has access to electrical sockets and mirrors also.
Please bear in mind that toilets, sheds, tents or drafty out door places aren’t suitable changing areas. We realise that it isn’t always possible to accommodate these requests due to any number of reasons, so we are happy to compromise and come to a suitable solution. Just please don’t put us in a drafty shed!
- What does it mean when the contract states that the band are to be provided with food and drink? ↓
Vibetown work long hours and drive long distances to travel to gigs, often not getting home until the early AM long after the party has ended and the guests have all gone to bed! In light of this, it would be appreciated if the band could be provided with a suitable meal after set up and soundcheck and before the main evening performance. This can be in the form of a food buyout from the venue (at the expense of the client) or for the band to be included in the main evening food arrangements that the guests are taking part in.
- How likely is the band line up to change on the night? ↓
As mentioned in the ‘Band’ page, Vibetown Function Band Available For Weddings & Parties is a collective entity of some of the UK’s top session and professional musicians and is made up from a large selection of regular players. On occasion, not all band members are available for gigs due to touring commitments with named artists such as Westlife, Pixie Lotte and Olly Murrs to name a few. In this instance, another regular player will be drafted in to replace someone for the gig. All players are fully rehearsed up to the standard you would expect and always deliver an exceptional performance!
- Do the band provide a separate DJ & how does the iPod Disco work? ↓
Vibetown do not provide a separate DJ as such, but do provide an iPod Disco service which is included in the price. This service is run on the night intermittently by the band and guests are welcome to make requests.
- Do I need to provide accommodation for the band? ↓
This is only required for long distance journeys of 2.5hrs or more from Leeds were the band are based. In most instances, the accommodation costs are included in the bands fee and organised by them unless stated other wise, or if some other arrangement has been made between Vibetown and the Client.
