What is the band power requirement?


How much space do you need?

The absolute minimum space the band require is 3m wide by 2m deep for the two piece version.  For the 5 piece version we require 5m wide by 4m deep, and 6m wide by 5m deep for the 8 piece.  However these areas will be very cramped and with the speakers so close together the sound will also be compromised in general, with a much higher risk of feedback.  The more space you can give us, the better the show will be, with more room for us to dance on stage, and the sound quality maximised due to the the speakers being further apart.  


How is it best to time things?

The bands performance times are important in making your evening flow properly, and we are totally flexible with this, although we prefer that our performance doesn't happen at the same time as the buffet or anything else you may have planned at your event. We also recommend that our second set is timed so that we play for the last hour of the event, as the dynamic of the performance works really well in this format, and creates a finale effect at your party.

Typical timings are as follows -
Arrival 18:00 to be set up and sound checked by 19:30.
Background/DJ music from 19:30 until 20:30.

Buffet from 20:30 until 21:00
Live set 1 from 21:15 until 22:00
Background/DJ music from 22:00 until 22:45
Live set 2 from 22:45 until 23:30

DJ music from 23:30 until midnight


Where will you travel to?

We are able to travel both UK wide and internationally.


Can I see you play live?

Due to the nature of our work, we don't play many public gigs as all of the events we perform at tend to be private parties or corporate events. We try to offset this situation by making sure we have plenty of promotional material, including lots of live recordings. If you want to follow us on Facebook, any last minute public gigs that do come in will be promoted on there:

The Essex Blues Brothers Facebook Page


Is the video on your website a true reflection of the band?

There is a 100% true live recording of a performance created to give you the opportunity to hear us playing totally live.  No audio modifications have been made to the videos or tracks.


How do I book you?

You can book us through the enquiry form on this website or by calling us on the number provided.


Are you able to DJ in between sets?

We carry a laptop with over 5000 songs to all our gigs that we use specifically for DJ'ing, making sure that we keep the dance floor swinging in between our live sets. We are happy to take requests for DJ songs.
If you have some specific songs you want played you can let Austin know in the pre event check and he will make sure they are ready to go on the night.

Can we use your sound system for speeches?

You are welcome to use our PA system for your speeches so long as they happen after we have set up.


What equipment do you use?

We only use high quality equipment.  A brief summery is as follows:


Drums

Pearl Master's Custom

DW/Pearl Hardware

Zildjian K Cymbals

Ludwig 400/Noble N Coolie Snare


Guitar

Amp- cornford mk50

Gut- PRS Custom 24

Pedals – BOSS Digital Delay, Philhilborne Signature Treble Booster


Bass

G&L Basses

Gallien Krueger Amp and Cabs

He also uses midi keyboard pedals


PA

72 x Mackie 450 V2 active top speakers

2 x Mackie 1501 active Bass Bins

Allen & Heath ZED 420, 20 channel mixing desk

Allen & Heath ZED 12fx, 10 channel mixing desk

Sennheiser ew100 G2 Radio Microphone

Behringer Multicom PRO-XL MDX4600 Compressor

Yahama 1000watt fold back Power Amp

2 x Mackie 450v2 active fold back speakers

3 I-colour 4 stage lighting units with stands, control unit and foot control unit.


Do you have lights?

Yes. We use 3 x ACME icolour lights, all linked up with foot control  for the ultimate lighting show during your event


How long do you play for?

We usually play two 45 minute sets or 1 60 minute set..


What time do you start and finish?

We arrive at 18:00 and usually start our first set at around 21:00, and play our second set in the final hour of the evening, but again we are totally flexible with this. Arrival and finish times are 18:00 and midnight as standard with early arrival and late finish fees applicable outside of these timings.


How long do you take to set up?

Assuming access to the venue is straight forward (i.e. ground floor room with no steps and vehicle access close to the venue), once all the equipment is loaded in we can normally be set up and sound checked in an hour.


Can I provisionally book you?

Unfortunately, we don’t take provisional bookings as our demand is such that we would be turning clients away on popular dates. However, when you make an official enquiry with us, your enquiry will be logged in our system and you will be given first refusal on your date should anybody else enquire for the same date.


What if the band split up before my event?

Like many professional party bands, our work is our livelihood and so we take our commitments very seriously.

In the very unlikely event that the band had split up before your party, every effort would be made to find a suitable replacement band.


Can my sisters/bosses/daughters sing with your band?

We love it when people get up to sing a song with us, and will encourage everyone to sing along, and some to sing into the microphone in well known party tunes.  However we will not let anyone take control of the microphone.  We don’t have a problem with someone actually singing an entire song all by themselves, but we do like to make sure that those singing or playing with us have some experience of being on stage. We’re happy to arrange this with you in advance. However, past experience has taught us that welcoming impromptu guests onto the stage on the night itself, can often end in disaster so we’d rather steer clear of that situation!


What will the band wear?

Typical Blues Brothers Outfits, hat and shades!!


Does the band have PAT and PL certificates?

We always carry up to date PAT certification and have Public Liability Insurance cover up to £5M.


Why should I book The Essex Blues Brothers?

We are one of the busiest and most experienced Blues Brothers bands in the UK. We have travelled all over the UK and Europe, and played in every type of venue to all kinds of people, so we bring a wealth of experience to your event, not to mention equipment and live sound of the highest quality.
It is important to us that we play something for everybody at your party. We understand that your event is special, and that you only get one chance to get it right. You are guaranteed 100% of our energy, enthusiasm and integration with you and your guests. We love what we do!


How much does it cost to book the band?

Prices vary depending on what set up you want, location and dates.  For a rough guide, please go to our prices page.


Can we see some previous client testimonials?

Yes. We testimonials from previous satisfied clients on our website here


Do The Essex Blues Brothers have any specific requirements?

We request a room in which to change, something to eat and drinks for the duration of our time at the venue.


What type/size venues are you able to play at?

We have played in every type of venue, from festivals, huge marquees and ballrooms to intimate clubs and private residencies.


How loud will the band be?

We always make sure that our volume levels are such that people at your event can still converse, but really feel as though they are at a gig when they're on the dance floor.
Being a guitar based rock and pop function band, the nature of the music we play means that we can only turn down so far! If your chosen venue has a DB limiter, please discuss this with us at the time of your enquiry - to make sure that the performance you will receive from us will not be compromised.

What is the band power requirement?

We usually request 2 double 13 amp supplies near to the stage area. We prefer to run lights from one power source and audio equipment from another to reduce the risk of noise interference.
As a rule, we draw approximately 16 amps with everything on and have only ever experienced any issues in events in marquees where the generator capacity has been too low.
