But here at Night Patrol, we think we have really come up with the ultimate live entertainment package to keep you and your guests of all ages dancing and give you a night to remember!

HOW TO BOOK YOU?
Easy, click here and get in touch.
If you are happy with what Night Patrol has to offer, all we require is a standard 25% deposit to secure your date with the band and you are done.
Congratulations you’re going to have one hell of a performance!
IS THAT ALL?
Nearly. Once we have received your deposit, you will receive a confirmation email, along with a few simple questions such as name of venue and contact number? Do you have any song requests? Start time and finish?
Night Patrol will arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and pre-mixed disco, and will perform 2 x 45 min or 2 x 1 hours of live music. The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.
If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the band would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening. If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) the band could arrive while you are eating to get set up (they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches)
It takes a minimum of 90 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.
A guide to a standard evening reception would be:
17:00 - Band Arrives
19:00 - Background Music On
20:00 - First Dance/First Set
21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for evening buffet)
22:00 - Second Set
23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close
Timings are flexible to suit your needs and live sets can be split 3 x 30 mins if you prefer. Night Patrol's standard price is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there may be an additional charge.
The band is very happy to perform your choice of first dance for you as long as they have at least two months notice of the song choice.
