Company nameAnna Nightingale
About my businessAnna Can offer a tailored solution for your special event or wedding... Whether its a solo act, a duo - with a talented guitarist, a trio - or her live 4 piece band.. Anna has the perfect choice.
Anna likes to get to know everything about you before the event, i.e what songs you like, what songs you don't like! (just as important).
She Likes to meet with you before the day and visit the venue if possible, to find out where she can set up, where the electric points are, the light switches, any other buttons that we need to know about --- how to find the bar, the ladies loo etc...
Anna will ask you lots of questions, and is never more than a phone call away... or an email. firstname.lastname@example.org

About meThere are lots of questions that I get asked when people are booking me, so I thought I would try to answer as many as possible on here! If your question isn't listed - please get in touch and I will do my best to cover all your queries.... thanks!!
How much does it cost to hire Anna - or the band? It depends on the day of the week strangely! Saturdays are the most expensive, as they are the most popular, and also if there are any travelling expenses or the venue is too far to drive home at night, an overnight charge will be added.
How far do you travel? I will travel all over the South of the UK, and even abroad depending on the fee!! So please ask. The band stays in the south... as there are 4 of us!
Can we see you perform before we book you? By all means - although I do a lot of private parties, but if I am at a venue near you - I would love you to come along.
Are you insured? Yes I am a full member of the Musicians Union, which provides £10 million Public Liability cover, and all my equipment is insured too.
How long do you normally play for? I usually do 2 x 60 minute sets or 3 x 45 minute sets depending on your requirements and the fee.. This is always negotiable, but the breaks are not. I need my breaks for hygiene reasons, and your guests will need them to rest!! The Band do 2 x 50 minute sets... and can offer an additional set if required at an additional fee.
Can you learn our favourite song? Yes of course, I can certainly learn for example, the song you want to have your first dance as a married couple! Please let me know and the more notice I have the better. If it's the band - then all member's have to learn their particular part which takes time.
What time & space do you need at the venue? We arrive approx 1hr before the start of the booking to set up and do a sound check, where we need to play one number, so will make noise. If this isn't possible, please let us know, as we can arrive earlier. As far as space goes, 2m x 3m will be sufficient, but the bigger the better as far as I'm concerned!
If I am coming as a solo act, then I will need a lot less room, and can set up in 15-20 minutes! Also if you can provide a snack and soft drinks, that would be wonderful.. Although it's not 100% necessary, let me know, as I can always bring supplies.
Do you take a deposit? Yes I always take 50% on booking and ask you to fill in a contract. The balance is payable 7 days before the event. This is my profession, so everything is declared, and so you can pay directly into my bank account.
