Frequently Asked Questions

How much is an Irish band for hire in Essex?

You'll spend about £400 to £600 to hire an Irish band in Essex from Poptop to play at your event. This service fee includes the travel charges and service time. When you enter your event information on Poptop's website to check the Irish bands available for booking, you can compare costs to see which best matches your budget. Additionally, you will receive an immediate price. Although our supplier's pricing is shown on their profile, you may also contact them for additional information.

Is the provided equipment PAT tested?

Yes. As part of Poptop's service criteria, all Irish bands in Essex are required to offer PAT-tested performance-related equipment. Therefore, you can rest assured the band will provide instruments that have passed PAT testing. The band will be responsible for providing all the necessary equipment for the event, including a PA system, microphone, and lighting. All equipment must be well-maintained before they can be used to perform. To view the instrument the band will provide at your event, visit the band's profile page on Poptop. Additionally, our suppliers will be in charge of preparing and disassembling their equipment before and following the event.

How long will an Irish band perform?

Most Irish bands in Essex perform two sets of 60 minutes each, separated by a break of 30 minutes. A typical Irish band performance lasts two to three hours. However, not all Irish bands adhere to this timeframe. Our suppliers provide flexible scheduling, so they are always willing to adjust their performance to meet your needs. Please feel free to verify which band best suits your preferences as each band's availability is listed on their profile on Poptop's website.
