How to hire a swing and jive band – making a booking

Once you’ve settled on the band that you would like to book, simply let your Alive Network coordinator know that you’d like to confirm the booking and they’ll secure the booking with the band. They will issue you and the band with legally binding booking contracts which ensure all the details of your booking are correct, everyone understands what they’ve agreed to, and that the band can’t pull out of the booking or mess you around. You will need to pay a booking deposit to Alive Network upon confirmation (roughly 25% of the total fee) and the remaining balance is usually payable directly to the artist on the night of the event. Your deposit can be paid by card, bank transfer or cheque.

If you need to discuss any aspect of your booking, or if you need to make any changes, your dedicated Alive Network coordinator will be on hand to support you as much as you need.

You will be put in touch with the band 3-4 weeks before your event to run over the arrangements, fine tune the details and make any changes necessary.
