How much does it cost to book The Upbeats?

Please submit an enquiry on FixTheMusic for a quote. The costs depend on a number of factors including location, travel times and peak dates.

Can I come and see the band at a show before I book?

We do understand that it's nice to watch the band live before you book but unfortunately the band rarely plays public gigs, as they are so busy with private bookings.

However, we are happy to provide you with references that will give you peace of mind that we are completely professional, experienced in every type of event and very accommodating.

How long do you take to set up and set down?

Loading in and setting up usually takes the band an hour depending on how close they can park to the performance area.

They will always run through a few numbers for a soundcheck. If the event proceedings are running late they will still need an hour. Their set-down and load-out takes around 45 minutes and this is done after their performance.
