Can we use the band microphone for speeches at our event?
Yes, we are happy to provide a professional wireless microphone for speeches, etc.
Do we need to provide food and drinks for the band?
We simply require a minimum of main meal per band member and basic drinks. All venues are able to provide this, usually at a reduced cost to the standard guest price. All members of Paris by Night practice responsible drinking.
Do you assist with the running of the night?
Yes, the band will liaise with your function co-ordinator & MC throughout the evening to ensure everything runs smooth and seamless.
Do I need an MC and can you provide MC service?
Yes, you definitely need an MC to make sure your event runs efficiently and on time. We ALWAYS recommend having either an independent professional or we can provide MC service at a fraction of the price of an independent MC. Please note that if you choose to have a non professional MC for your event (i.e. family member or friend), we cannot guarantee the band performance times, as most often, that person will be caught up socialising and important events during the night won’t run to schedule.
