FAQ

How long does Tux Fizz live band perform for?


We offer 2 x 60 min sets or 3 x 45 min sets of live music, but we’re very flexible and will play what is required for your event and also adjust as timings unfold on the day.

When the live band isn't playing we provide a variety of DJ options to keep the party going. We include an unmanned DJ playlist for free with every package, but there are also options to include the manned DJ (from a band member) or a Professional DJ. Please enquire for pricing options.

How long does it take the band to set up and sound check?


We require a minimum of 90 minutes to set up, but if the venue has difficult access to the stage will of course mean it takes us longer to set up.

If the band are setting up in the same room as your Wedding Breakfast then we can only start setting up after you've vacated the room. If speeches and dinner overrun, then this may impact on the band's start time, but we will work with you to adapt timings to ensure everything flows smoothly on the night.




Does the time the band arrives and leaves affect the cost?


Yes it does. The quote presumes that the band arrive at 6:30pm to be ready set up in time for 8:00pm to 8:30pm and can start packing up our equipment by 12:00am. If you need Tux Fizz there a lot earlier or wish us to perform beyond midnight, then the quote will include the costs for the extra time.




What’s the best time to do the first dance?


Tux Fizz are flexible to accommodate any specific timings you may have, but from our experience we have found that it is best not to start performing too early. We recommend first dance no earlier than 8.00pm to allow evening guests to arrive and settle in. We would also recommend serving evening food/sparklers in our first DJ break (60 minutes after first dance or 45 minutes if you are having three sets) to ensure your guests make the most of evertything you have planned for them. The band will then resume after the break.




What happens to the music when you are not performing?


We provide a variety of DJ options to keep the party going when the band is not performing. We include an unmanned DJ playlist for free with every package, but there are also options to include the manned DJ (from a band member) or a Professional DJ. Please enquire for pricing options.




Will Tux Fizz perform our first dance?


Yes and this is included in the fee. Please give us at least 6 weeks notice so we can fit it into our band rehearsal schedule if we don’t already know it.





Can we choose which songs Tux Fizz perform?


We recommend that you check through our set list (provided on request) and let us know which your favourites are and we will make sure we include them. If there are one or two you really don’t like then we’ll take note. Remember - we have 7 years of experience performing and reading crowds so have a really good idea of what will go down well. Our goal is to ensure your guests have an unforgettable night – and we haven’t failed yet!




How far is the band able to travel?


We travel all across the UK and beyond – our quote will include costs for time and travel expenses.





Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT certificates for your equipment?


Yes. We have group Public Liability Insurance, and we also keep our electrical equipment with fully up-to-date PAT certificates which can be provided on request.




Do you require a deposit when booking?


We ask for a 25% deposit to confirm the booking and secure the date with the band.




Are there any hidden costs?


No. We will always quote a fee which is fully inclusive of all travel and accommodation costs.




Will you need feeding and watering?


For all day coverage of events the singer would request that the venue provides a meal after their performance and waters througout the day (would not expect to be seated as a guest). For evening coverage the band would request that the venue provides a meal, snack or light bite for each band member. Waters throughout the performance would be highly appreciated.




What if there is something else I need to ask?


Please email rich@tuxfizz.co.uk and our manager Rich will be in touch as soon as possible. We are currently experiencing high volumes of enquiries - so we aim to respond within 1-3 days.




What is your policy around Covid-19?


If your wedding is impacted by Covid, then we would work through the following process: 1) Work with you to find a new date that works, and then update the original booking to the new date 2) If for whatever reason the new date cannot be supported by the band, then we would work our roster to find another amazing band for your date 3) If we cannot find a suitable alternative band then we would look to refund 50% of the original booking fee to you. We recognise that COVID has affected couples and suppliers alike - this approach enables us to cover our overhead costs while ensuring the couple still gets something back :)




Can I choose my specific performers?


The band lineup will be determined by the date and location of your event, as well as the availability of the performers. Tux Fizz will also provide 2x singers, 1x guitarist, 1x bassist and 1x drummer.

We cannot guarantee specific individuals availability on your date, but we can guarantee that Tux Fizz will deliver an unforgettable performance for you and your guests.

We pride ourselves on having the most incredible band members and have been very strict over the years on the calibre of performer we want in the band. This focus on quality has ensured we guarantee an unforgettable experience with every single performance.
