  • "Couldn't recommend the band enough. Very Happy!"
    This testimonial was entered by Rattle & Shake on 31 January 2019

    We hired The Fabulous Hurricanes to play at our Wedding and couldn't be happier that we did. The communication beforehand was professional and the band accommodated all our needs. We had only read reviews and seen clips of their performances before we booked them but they exceeded our expectations. The night was such a success and they kept the dance floor packed due to the band's energy and choice of songs. Everyone said to us afterwards that it was the best wedding they had been to and we hold The Fabulous Hurricanes partly responsible for this. The band intermingled with our guests during their breaks making it very personable....I think I remember seeing one of our guests wearing one of the band's members velvet blazer at one point. Couldn't recommend the band enough. Very Happy!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are your starting prices?

While every show is unique and pricing can vary, as a guide, our smaller acts start at £1,000 + vat, and our bigger acts start at £3,000 + vat.

Can you play our first dance?

Absolutely - all of our acts can learn and perform your first dance (within reason!). Very rarely our clients will choose a first dance that is simply not possible given the instruments and repertoire of the act, but where this is the case, our DJ can play the song for you.

How long can you play for?

Usually our bigger acts would perform 2 x 45 minute high-energy sets, but we can be flexible to suit your wedding and perform for longer, or with different timings to fit your day.

Are you able to play background music when the full band isn't playing?

Yes - we have a few different options for this. For example, our guitarist and saxophonist could play jazz standards or pop tunes, or alternatively, you might prefer some solo jazz or blues piano. We could also provide one of our stunning smaller acts to fill your day with music from start to finish! We can also of course play recorded music through our PA system.

Do you bring all your own equipment?

Yes - we typically bring a sound and lighting system as well as an engineer with us to each show. This allows the band to focus on delivering a great performance and to not have to worry about how they sound ‘out front’; our experienced engineers will be able to mix the levels of the instruments to suit the room and the size of the audience.

My venue requires the band has public liability insurance. Do you have this?

We have full public liability insurance up to £5,000,000, and all of our equipment has been PAT tested too, for those venues that need the peace of mind.

How do I make payment?

We ask for a deposit to secure the booking, by BACS transfer, with the remaining balance of the payment due at the latest 14 days before the performance date.

How far can you travel?

We are based in the UK, and we regularly travel up and down the country and Europe depending on where the booking is. As such we are very happy to travel wherever in the world you need us to!

Can we use a microphone for speeches?

We can provide a wireless microphone with our PA system that can either be handheld or left on a stand.
