“After an extensive google search, I found and booked The Thatchers for a housewarming / 40th birthday party and I was absolutely delighted I did!! They were absolutely brilliant. Not only that, they were friendly, adaptable and just generally willing to please! Their presence created a fantastic atmosphere for our party and our guests absolutely loved them too! Would not hesitate to recommend them and even book them again for a future party.”

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 live 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 0800 564 2240 / info@thethatchersband.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that The Thatchers 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 event and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit (the amount varies from £265 to £340 depending on the package that you pay for) to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.

PLANNING

In the lead up to your party you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the evening. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, set preferences, 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 Thatchers 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.

A guide to a standard evening party would be:

  • 17:30 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On For Welcome Drinks
  • 20:00 - First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for buffet if you’re having one, and if it’s a birthday, perfect time for doing the cake!)
  • 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 Thatchers 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 a special request for you as long as they have at least three weeks notice of the song choice.

The Thatchers also offer a brilliant live lounge-style acoustic set, this is the perfect addition to your welcome drinks and can really help set the mood for a great party. As the musicians are already booked to perform at the event, the price of this set represents excellent value when compared to hiring a separate band for your drinks reception entertainment - it can be as much as 50% cheaper than hiring an equivalent act.

To discuss hiring The Thatchers to perform at your party please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@vintageweddingentertainment.com.

The Thatchers are based in the Surrey area, and are hired all across the U.K. including Chertsey, Dorking, Woking, Weybridge, Cobham, Bagshot, Esher, Kingston-Upon-Thames, Egham, Northbrook Park, Farnham Castle, Gate Street Barn near Guildford, The Barn at Bury Court near Farnham, and many more.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Katy
Wedding, Stapleford Park, Leicestershire (Soul Motion)
We're just back from Honeymoon and wanted to say a huge thank you, the band were absolutely amazing from start to finish and we had so many guests saying how fantastic they were. It really made our party having the dance floor full all evening.
Steve
Corporate Event, Nottingham (Soul Motion)
The band were brilliant - everybody loved the music and commented on how good they were. We’d certainly book them again!
Khadija & Grant
Wedding, The Trafalgar Arms, London (Noir Jazz Trio)
What can I say to do justice to Noir Jazz Trio? Sarah and the band were everything we’d hoped for and more. They were the perfect sound at our Wedding Reception and they truly added a special something to the evening. We had a very specific request for our “first dance” song and they absolutely nailed it. It still gives me goose bumps when I think about it. They really are a touch of class and I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Sarah
Wedding, Forest Lodge Hotel, The New Forest (Chartz)
Chartz are simply amazing! They were very professional the whole evening but yet still lovely people. They were the perfect finish to our wedding! Their set lists were perfect and we all danced the whole night. I would 100% recommended Chartz for any function but they were perfect for our wedding!
Sarah & Harry
Wedding, Chichester, Sussex (A-List)
Excellent communication with Tailored Entertainment and the band answered the (very few!) questions we had quickly too. They ran the night perfectly and were very relaxed. Couldn't have asked for more!
