The Forgers exciting live show can be tailored to meet your needs and to fit around your event, be it a wedding, party or corporate function. Before making a booking, please take the time to read this important extra information. Do you play live? We don’t expect you to pay for a phony act; you are assured that The Forgers cover band play 100% live. Every note you will hear is played on the spot – no backing tracks! How loud are you? The Forgers cover band don’t play any louder than you would expect any rock and roll band to play, but we’re not a cocktail act! Live drums, bass and guitar inevitably means loud, high energy music, so if you’re looking for ‘background’ music, please book our acoustic option. Please bear this in mind when considering the type of entertainment you want and the type of venue where you will be holding your event. How long do you play for? We typically perform two sets of 45 minutes or three of 40 minutes. However, we can negotiate with you according to your needs. If you are getting married, we can also play some acoustic songs during the reception or at the drinks reception, then play a party set with the full band set up in the evening. Do you take requests? Check our set list page for the rock and indie hits we play. We will do our best to cater for your requests too. Do I need to hire any extra equipment? We bring our own sound and lighting rig which is big enough for most small to medium venues. We are happy to discuss larger events (including outdoor festivals etc.) and the sort of equipment that may need to be hired. Generally if your event is for more than about 250 people, it is worthwhile hiring a separate audio visual company to provide the sound and lighting equipment for the event. If you are unsure, please ask. Do I need to hire a separate DJ? We can provide disco lighting and a laptop DJ service at no extra cost to yourselves. We can also provide a bespoke recorded playlist (you choose the songs in advance) for a small fee. We will do our best to cater for requests from your guests on the night too. What is your rider? In addition to our fee, we ask for a secure, clean changing room, some drinks (beers appreciated, but not essential) and a hot meal for each band member. There are three of us. Are you insured? As paid-up MU members, we are insured for Public Liability in the event of any accidents. All of our electrical equipment is fully PAT tested, as required by most venues. How much do you charge? Fees vary according to the location and size of your event and whether you need us to set up especially early or stay especially late. We ask you to pay a deposit and sign a contract with us to ensure we both understand our commitments. Tell us about your event today and we will give you a quote!
