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 weddings, private parties and corporate events, The Dollars are the perfect choice for any event.
Previous clients include Barclaycard, Best Western Hotels, MoneySupermarket.com, British Army, RAF, 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.
Acoustic Set (see booking options for more details) In addition to their standard performances, The Dollars can perform a laid back acoustic set to create a chilled atmosphere, perfect for drinks receptions or during dinner.

We just wanted to give our sincere thanks to you and all your staff involved for organising such a great band. Everything went perfectly as planned; The Dollars were punctual, suitably dressed and were very professional throughout the evening. Everybody at our wedding said how fantastic they sounded and we will certainly recommend them in the future. Likewise all the organising on your side of things has been more than excellent so we cannot thank you enough.

"Booking the Dollars was quick and easy. The website was efficient in finding us a band that was within our graduation ball budget and available on the night. The band were very organised and highly professional both on the phone and the actual day.
The audience loved the band's performance which was inkeeping with the event...fun, loud, and varied! The DJ set used music that was spot on!
Thanks for making it a great night!"

"I can thoroughly recommend this group.
They were totally professional from the way they set up, to their playing, to their mixing with our guests. I should say that our guests' average was over 60 and yet almost everyone was still dancing at the end of the evening and everyone said how much they had enjoyed the music.
Alive Network was a very good organisation to use and were very helpful all the way through the booking.

"We were absolutely thrilled with The Dollars.
They were truly fantastic and exceeded all our expectations. They sounded amazing and played a great range of hits covering a multitude of genres and decades. I thought they sounded good online but they are wonderful live and they had nearly every guest dancing. They really did make our wedding for us and all of our guests raved about them. They are extremely talented, professional, enthusiastic and easy to deal with and we can't recommend them enough"

"Booking The Dollars through Alive Network was easy, with all my questions answered and everything confirmed so quickly.
The Dollars were absolutely fantastic, they got in touch with me several times before the party to check what we wanted and to confirm arrangements. On the night they were brilliant, excellent musicians who really got the party going - so many of our guests commented on how great they were! I wouldn't hesitate to book them again and again!!

Thank you for all help in organising this - you took away some of my worry in organising this event. Please also pass on my thanks to the Dollars - I think I told them lots of times on Friday how impressed I was but that wasn't just the champagne talking I really was impressed.
