FAQs

What time will the band arrive and how long does it take to setup?

The Band will arrive in accordance with the time stipulated at the point of booking (normally in keeping with a time that suits you, or in line with venue requirements). The following are indications of setup time required, inclusive of sound check:

  • 4 Piece Band: 1 Hour
  • 5/6 Piece Band: 1 Hour
  • 7/8 Piece Band: 75 Minutes

Assuming your wedding includes a sit-down meal, it is usual that set-up and sound check would happen after the meal (whilst the room is cleared) and whilst guests leave the room to get drinks and stretch their legs.

If you would prefer the band to be set up before guests arrive, this can be arranged but usually costs more because of the extra time involved. If however, you are fortunate enough to have the use of several rooms (with the meal being served in a separate room to the evening reception) then the band can begin setup as soon as they arrive.

At what time will the band perform?

The band will perform during set times stipulated at the point of booking. However, as a guide, our most common performance times are:

  • 20:30pm: Perform First Dance Live followed by 1st Set
  • Break for Buffet (and DJ Service)
  • 22:30: Perform 2nd Set
  • 23:15 until contracted Finish Time: DJ Service

Can I pick the band set list?

You can pick an additional two songs from the band's repertoire listing (in addition to your already chosen first dance request). So in total you will have 3 custom songs. This will complement the bands pre-rehearsed set list, which has a track record of keeping the dance floor full and providing maximum entertainment.

I am struggling for first dance suggestions – can the band recommend any?

Of course we can. We can tell you all of the popular choices we have performed to date, or recommend something from our current set list. Please ask if you are finding this choice difficult!

Does the Band provide lighting?

Yes, the band provides lighting for its performance and DJ service (if you have also requested this.)

Can I customise the DJ playlist?

Absolutely. We encourage our clients to share their preferred playlist with us on Spotify. Please contact us for details on how to do this. Otherwise, feel free to submit a listing to us in advance. Be sure to include songs you DON’T want as well as songs you would like. All we ask is that you provide this listing at least 2 weeks prior to the booking – so we don’t have to disturb you during the final stages of your preparations.

When will the band contact me next?

We aim to contact you approximately two weeks before your wedding to confirm the finer points, make any adjustments/amendments to timings and check in with the venue. We will, of course, be in regular contact throughout, and available at any time to answer your questions following the initial booking.

Do we need to provide anything for the band?

  • Food and Refreshments
  • Changing Room, or spare room available

"Wow what a fantastic band!! They kept the dance floor full all evening. The set list was amazing and their live performance of our first dance, Nora Jones Come Away With Me was so beautiful, it was the icing on the cake. Phil was great throughout, very responsive and approachable he designed a ‘fantasy’ set list which was packed with songs we love. A few of the guests were professional musicians, and as a family music plays a huge part in our lives so choosing the right band was very important to us. We loved Powerhouse as soon as we heard the samples, Chesqua has the most amazing voice and stage presence and we were thrilled to bits on the night as Phil added a male vocalist which was a complete surprise. This added even more to the performance. If you’re looking for a fantastic sounding band that will keep your guests on the dance floor all night, look no further...Powerhouse surpassed all our expectations!!"

"When you’re in a band yourself, choosing a band for your wedding is probably one of the hardest things to do! My standards were set very high and for a while of searching, nothing was making the cut. Then I stumbled upon Powerhouse. From the initial contact with the lovely Phil, to the amazing performance the band put on for my wedding, Powerhouse were just brilliant. Phil was efficient, professional and helpful, and during our phone convo in the lead up to the wedding was nothing but lovely; he has a real passion for what he does and that translates into the band’s performance. On the day itself, the band turned up discretely (so discretely in fact that I had a mini panic about where they were!) and were set up and ready without anyone knowing. This, to me, was massively important as I didn’t want to distract from or disturb the flow of the day by moving people around or by hearing people crashing about with equipment- something I’ve seen before at other weddings I’ve been to! They offered to live play our first dance but we had a track put together by a DJ friend who had remixed a dance off track between me & my husband. Phil played it through their system and then took over for the main event (and even let me take the stage for a number too- I couldn’t not on my wedding day!) which kept the dance floor full all night. I danced my heart out and had the best time. Their repertoire is fab and just kept on coming. I would 100% recommend this talented lot. Loved them!!"
