Overview
Price from: £500.00
We aim to be both reasonable and competitive, and our prices depend on the function, line-up and where we're travelling to. At our cheapest we can provide one musician and recorded backing tracks for about two hours of playing time, for which we charge £110.00. This arrangement often suits occasions where the music mustn't be intrusive and needs to stay a little in the background. We can also provide a duo or trio in several combinations, usually at £110.00 per person, although in certain circumstances we would need to charge a premium (for instance, events scheduled for the very late hours). This line-up works well at intimate do's and soirees! The full Radio Pensacola Band starts at around £600.00, but in some circumstances we can be open to negotiation. Wedding events are more expensive though - and that's because they're generally the most time-consuming and complicated to manage. For all events our travel is not charged for up to a distance of about 50 miles.

We are a musical collective of flexible size specialising in the sounds of the Great American Songbook and jazz standards. Our smaller line-ups are frequently booked for bistro's and occasions where t...

“It’s always a nerve racking experience booking a band not knowing what you are going to get. However, Django and the guys were superb! I arrived at our venue to find them already setup with no fuss. They listened to what we were after for our event and sensitively played their part providing a great mix of stylish background mu...

First of all, I have to say that you've been very receptive to our ideas from the outset and very supportive in helping us realise our 'vision' for the event, so to speak...

Secondly, I thought the music performed for the occasion and audience was excellent. You incorporated a variety of tunes, songs and styles but with a jaz...

FAQ
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
As a rule, we usually have one break half way through, but the smaller outfits sometimes break the evening up into three or four 40 min sets, with ten minute intervals between - again, flexibility is our thing.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
If we know in advance, and if it fits our sort of genre; if somebody wanted, say, "Uptown Funk" it just wouldn't work!
How much space do you require?
We can squeeze into some surprising spaces - not too small, of course, and a lot depends on the size of the band; if it's just one-man and backing tracks, it can be tiny, but if it's the full band we need a bit more room.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Band leader has Public Liability Insurance and some of the equipment has been PAT tested.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
We have our own PA and can do some of our own lighting, too.
How long do you play for?
Sets are usually two hours total, split into two sets, but we're flexible - and we don't watch the clock!
How can event planners pay for your services?
The usual way is after the gig, by BACS or by cash, whichever best suits.
Who are your previous clients?
We've worked for everyone from private individuals to more corporate events, and from hotels and bistro's, and our clients number at least one recipient of a knighthood!
What kind of events do you usually serve?
Weddings, special occasions such as birthday parties, retro and vintage events or those that require something just a little bit different.
What is your competitive advantage (special features)?
Our flexibility, in terms of the sort of band we can turn out to play for occasions big or intimate.
What are the highlights of your career?
Too many to name any single one, but the event where we played "Show Me the Way to Amarillo" for a couple at their surprise Diamond Wedding anniversary, and they arrived, turned to each other and spontaneously danced up and down the room will always be up there with our favourites.
Please, describe your act or business in on sentence:
Bringing the retro sounds of classic jazz standards and songs to entertain. or relax, or add ambience to your event.
