The Dollars is highly recommended

"The Dollars lived up to expectations and more! Everyone at the wedding commented on how good they were and the live performances were so full of energy, we thoroughly enjoyed them. I think for most people, us included, they were the highlight of the wedding! They were good value for money, and played with enthusiasm and quality. They listened to requests and seemed to individualise their performance for us which we enjoyed. We would without question book them again and in fact many of our guests were interested in who they were and where we booked them from. Highly recommended from two lovers of live music. The booking experience was incredibly easy and straightforward. We had frequent contact with Graham who answered any queries promptly and set us up for the entertainment without any worries on our part. Many thanks for making the process so pain-free."

"Guys, simply Thank you.

A band/DJ can make or break a wedding & you guys made ours. The set up, the musical ability, the whole outfit is perfect, brilliant - I've run out of superlatives but you will be recommended to anyone & everyone we know who needs a band.

Wishing you tuned skins, no snapped strings & no sore throats for the rest of your playing days!"
- Vicky & Chris Raven

Introducing The Dollars… A 4-piece all male band based in the Nottinghamshire area.

What Have They Done Before?

Since forming in 2007, highly skilled and versatile musicians The Dollars, have gained extensive experience when it comes to performing on stage. Specialising in performing at private parties, corporate events and providing wedding entertainment, The Dollars are the perfect choice for any event.

The Dollars have performed at corporate events for clients including Barclaycard, Best Western Hotels, MoneySupermarket.com, British Army, and the RAF at venues such as Durham University, Hampton Court Palace, Kenilworth Castle, Kettering Conference Centre, Kingswood Golf & Country Club, Marriott Hotels, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Riply Castle plus many more weddings and private functions.

"Firstly if you're thinking of booking this band DO IT NOW- if you wait until you've read this someone else may get in before you!

Unanimous feeling is that The Dollars were the high point of the day. Generally sensible and upstanding people were seen to be dancing wildly on the floor and harassing the band for an encore- I think The Dollars would have been requested to play through to morning light had the venue not been residential!"
– Cormac Farrell

What Sort Of Music They Play?
Their shows are lively, exciting and varied to suit every guest. Their set list is suitable for all tastes; anything from classic artists like The Beatles, The Kinks and Rolling Stones right up to modern bands Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys and The Killers …plus many more (see set list).

"I will try and tell you how good the Dollars we’re on our special day but it won’t be easy to put into words!!!! My guest book comments include how fantastic the day, party and band were, the quality of the band are the first thing most people say to me when recollecting the day/evening!!"
- Matt Goodchild

What Will The Band Look Like?
The Dollars always dress appropriately for the occasion. For weddings and corporate events they can dress formally, suited and booted, and for less formal events The Dollars can dress more casually if you prefer. Just specify your needs to your booking agent.

"WOW! The amount of guests who came up to us during the evening asking about you just showed how much everyone loved your music. I even missed speaking to some guests because my feet just wouldn't let me leave the dance floor!"
- A very happy, Mr & Mrs Price

Your Event?
The Dollars live sets can be performed as 2 x 45 minutes, 2 x 60 minutes or 3 x 40 minutes. The band will be flexible on the night to adapt to your event.

The band can also provide music between sets so there is no break once the party has started. If you’d prefer, The Dollars can provide a DJ service which includes:

* Manned laptop with large selection of popular songs
* DJ software that allows seamless track play
* Requests taken
* Basic announcements made over the mic

The Dollars are a 4 piece band and preferably need a stage space of 5 x 4 metres but will accommodate whatever space is available. They are also more than happy to adjust volume levels to suit your venues requirements.

Superior Equipment
The Dollars always bring a top spec, top sounding 3.5k RCF PA system along to every show, suitable for up to 300-400 guests. They also have their own self contained lighting system of; 8 x LED par cans to light the stage and 4 x 360° multi-coloured moving heads to cover the dance floor. Both lighting systems operate sound-to-light and provide full built in dynamic shows for an enhanced visual experience.

In addition to this, other pro equipment they use includes Shure and Sennheiser vocal/instrument mics, wireless in-ear monitors for each band member (for minimal stage noise), Gibson, Fender, PRS, Warrick and Taylor guitars, a Pearl Masters drum kit, Marshall and Ashdown valve amplification. Ensuring sound quality is second to none, everything is connected to a 16 Channel Allen & Heath Mixing desk for a crisp, high quality and powerful sound with plenty of control. Sound quality is further enhanced by running vocals and instruments through Drawmer compressors/noise gates and a Yamaha 32 band EQ. The band have invested heavily to ensure you get the best possible tone at your event.

The Sessions Acoustic Duo
The Sessions Acoustic Duo (available independently here) can perform a laid back acoustic set to create a chilled atmosphere, perfect for drinks receptions or during dinner.

The Sessions are a popular acoustic duo in their own right. When booked independently, prices start from £527 however, book The Sessions alongside The Dollars for a greatly reduced price of £321.

The Sessions perform for 2 x 30 minutes. Their standard arrival time is 4pm. Should you need them to arrive any earlier, then a early arrival fee will be charged.

"Booking was easy with Alive Network and contact from our agent made things very easy! Paperwork was easy to understand and useful for the venue.

The Dollars were fantastic from start to finish, our guests loved them, as we hoped everyone was up dancing all night providing us with some fantastic memories of our day!"

"The Dollars are a professional band that created a great atmosphere at our wedding reception through the music they played.

We had asked the band to play certain songs but asked them to gage for themselves what was getting our guests up dancing and play to suit. They certainly did this and even played requests from our guests.

Everyone had a great time and so many of our guests since have commented on how good they were.

We booked The Dollars through Alive Network with confidence and would definitely recommend both The Dollars and Alive Network to anyone looking for a band to play at an event they are organising. The whole process was straight forward and easy."

"Do not hesitate to book this band. We couldn’t have asked for a more professional and talented group.

They catered for all tastes in music and made our daughters wedding a great success. The dance floor was always full and they were made to play 2 encores!"

"Many thanks for your wonderful sets with us – there is no doubt you made the evening go with a real buzz and everyone really enjoyed listening to the band.

So many friends asked where we hired you from- it was great to have a very professional team (sometimes we hear such boring bands at do’s!) and I very much hope you enjoyed your trip to Cleatham."

"Alive Network were great in putting your mind at ease with thorough info on the band themselves including MP3 clips and videos.

I don’t mind spending the money on live music, it makes or breaks an event, but I was nervous about booking having never seen the Dollars live myself, luckily there was nothing to fear – they were awesome!

“The band were fantastic” was the most commonly used phrase the day after our wedding! They set a fantastic tone for the whole night and absolutely made it for us.

It wasn’t until the second they started with the first song that I relaxed and just let my hair down – from that point on I don’t recall leaving the dance floor.

Truly a fantastic bunch of professionals that I couldn’t recommend highly enough. They were worth every single penny and they are an absolute credit to themselves. AMAZING!"

"Hi guys, just to say a massive thankyou for playing at our wedding.

You were by far the best band I've heard at a wedding and I've been to a lot of weddings.

Every single one of our guests were really impressed.

Sorry I didn't get to speak to you much at the wedding.

All the best and thanks again,
Luke and Amy"

"Hi Matt,

Now that things have finally settled down for us a bit, we just wanted to thank you again for playing for us last weekend. You all did a brilliant job and really made the evening for us. And the sets you played couldn't have been better!

Loads of people have commented on how good you were, so it wasn't just us who appreciated it!

Thanks again and good look with everything in the future,

-Mark & Hannah.
