A group of Sheffield Hallam students organising a fundraising event for the Sheffield Childrens Hospital charity as part of our final year of an Events Management degree. We have yet to finalise a venue but are wanting some local talent (acoustic) for an evening of laid-back music, food and funsraising.
Being students, and raising money for charity, we are starting on a £0 budget and are trying to get costs as low as possible whilst still getting good quality acts. Please could you advise as to the costs of your performers and any help / advise you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much in advance and we look forward to hearing from you.
Firstly I have looked high and low for a laid back guitarist/vocalist for our festival inspired wedding next year, I came across your profile today on poptop and I so so hope your free on our date as what you play is absolutely perfect and you sound amazing.
Our wedding is being held on our friends farm in Burnsall, North Yorkshire on Saturday 28th May 2016. We are having a really laid back day, with our ceremony at 1pm with then field games, lots of beer, lots of wine, a ton of BBQ and loads of laughter after. I was hoping you would play before during and after the ceremony? Probably a good four hours of relaxing, chilled gorgeous music....
We will supply you with all the BBQ and beer you fancy on the day.
Really looking forward to your response.
Hi like your harmonies and acoustic sound. It's my birthday party and have people coming from all over the country (friends and family). It's a beautiful venue, Beverley Race Course, East Yorkshire, the Paddock Room located on the first floor with a lift.. One wall is all glass looking out to the racecourse with a balcony. There will be dance floor in front of the band. Would like 2 x 60 minute sets.
Hi my names Tom Parr and I'm a producer engineer from chorley. I actually engineer dance music for a living but I'm looking for a singer to join me in writing original music that isnt dance music as such. I play the guitar myself so its going to be a mix of both electronic and live.
wedding starting at 2pm . Would like music playing at 1.30 as guests arrive. Then during ceremony and whilst photos are taken until wedding breakfast begins at 4pm. Can you send a quote please. Thank you.

Corporate award dinner dance for foster carer's. Looking for a jazz soul blues pop band with the WOW oh my! factor. Sadly a budget of £500.00. London Hotel venue. Please can you suggest or tell me yes, we can help! Thank YOU! (for your attention)
Leos Strings had plenty of performances to listen to on their website; we used them to learn about them and to make our decision to hire them for our event. We was amazed at how many different types of songs they could play! Rachel especially helped us with planning the event too. The quarter did an amazing job at our event and the guests were especially happy with their work. They added a real aura of beauty to the event and were real consummate professionals at what they were doing. Thank you for doing so well and being a part of our event!
Hey John, Cheryl
