  • "Wow, what a night!"
    Sarah B on 3 September 2019

    Wow, what a night! StraightFIRE were absolutely amazing! From the 1st time I spoke to Sam I knew they would be great and that they certainly were. Communication was brilliant from start to finish StraightFIRE got the dance floor buzzing and myself and my guests thought they were fantastic. He really got the vibe of what I wanted and it turned out to be such a good night. I can’t thank the band enough for making my wedding a night to remember

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your starting price?

Everything we do is highly bespoke so depends on the occasion but as a guide starting price, the 5-piece band starts from £1050 for 2x 45 minute sets.

What services do you offer?

We endeavour to offer anything you could want when it comes to live music on the day. If you want to create the perfect soundtrack to your day then we can discuss how to set the scene for your ceremony, reception drinks and wedding breakfast with a combination of solo musicians and small groups before our live band and DJ+musician combos kick off the festivities long into the night. We also provide all sound and lighting options so you don't need to worry about adding more things to your to-do list or your budget.

What is included in the wedding package?

As mentioned before, we don't have a standard wedding package. We will tailor our services to best fit because no two weddings are the same and everyone has a different taste in music so from experience, it's best not to try and shoehorn people into compromising on their dream day. We will absolutely take care of anything and everything you want from our extensive resources and make the only package you get be the perfect package to suit you personally on your big day

How far in advance should I contact you?

Earlier is always better as our diaries fill up approximately 12 months in advance but some people do get in touch as much as 2 to 3 years in advance. That being said, we have an extensive network of trusted musicians so if it is short notice, or you've been let down elsewhere, then don't hesitate to get in touch because we will absolutely do our best find a way to make it work whether its at 24 months or 24 hours notice.

What style of music do you offer?

If it's been popular in the last 400 years then we probably play it! We focus on a balanced mix of popular music from the Motown era through to contemporary chart-toppers for evening party sets but also provide Jazz and Classical music upon request for more relaxed occasions.

Type of musical group:

We are first and foremost a Party Band. We specialise in providing entertainment for weddings but our key driver is to get people dancing and having a great time. For people who are kind enough to invite us to be part of their special day, we pride ourselves on being able to reward that trust with a great atmosphere and a buzz that will grab every single guest and get them having a good time.

Size of musical group:

4 to 8 piece party band (additional singers and brass sections are available). Smaller groups are available for daytime music.

Repertoire:

Too much to write in one box! If you know it, we can probably play it. And on the rare occasion that we don't know it, we're happy to learn those special songs - just try to give us a little bit of notice!

Is it possible to request something that is not in the repertoire?

Absolutely. We're always happy to take requests. We understand that different music and songs is important to different people so request away and we'll do what we can to fit in as many as we can.

Experience:

StraightFIRE have been playing together for nearly a decade as well as working with each other in other projects. This band is the culmination of over 3000 gigs between our various members so we really know we how work together!

Do you have your own equipment?

Yes, we provide P.A. systems as standard. If you require lighting or an XL sound system then please let us know and we can arrange this for a small cost.

Are you able to travel?

Yes! We travel all over the UK and abroad. No event is too far or too much trouble.

Is there a charge for travelling?

This is location dependent. We will travel for free for up to 50 miles. After that, all of our expenses are standardised by industry rates so there won't be any surprises there.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

We have done in the past and can continue to cater for multiple weddings on one day. We have an extensive network of musicians so are able to offer more than one band of professionals that we know personally and have worked with extensively. As such - always get in touch if you are interested in a particular date and we will make things as easy as possible for you.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

We have a core of musicians but surround that with an extensive network of our closest colleagues who we have worked with and become friends with over time. This gives us the flexibility to cater so such a wide range of scenarios while never needing to outsource contracts to strangers like an agency would do.

What is the length of time of the act?

Completely flexible. Our standard evening set is 2x 50 minutes with a short break between but as every wedding is different, it is crucial that we have the flexibility to adapt to your schedule and we will do so given notice.

How much time do you need to prepare for an act?

We are always ready to go. Assuming we are ready to go, we have played for weddings at same day short notice - once even getting the call at 8pm on an evening and being on stage 30 miles away for 9.30!

What are the forms of payment?

We require a deposit for all engagements. We can then come to an agreement about the most appropriate payment method to suit your budgeting.
