πŸ’₯FAQπŸ’₯

 

We Strongly Advise All Couples And People Booking Us To Read All Of This Section As We Have Made It To Help You Have The Best Party Possible! 

 

Please make sure that you have a good read and discuss with your Event organiser, Venue or Wedding planner as appropriate.  We will be happy to discuss or answer any queries that you may have regarding any points not covered below.

 

πŸ’₯Does The Band Have Public Liability Insurance / PAT Certificates?πŸ’₯

Yes. These can be produced on the night or emailed to the venue before your event.

 

πŸ’₯What Time Will The Band Arrive?πŸ’₯

The band arrives to set up and soundcheck at 6pm (this is usually after any evening food or speeches). If you require the band to set up any earlier than this, you will need to make us aware of this during the booking process as this will incur an additional fee. Party Music will normally start to be played through the band PA system from 7:30pm 

 

πŸ’₯How Long Does The Band Need To Set Up & Soundcheck?πŸ’₯

Ideally the band needs a minimum of 1.5 hours to set up before performing. Please allow extra time if your occasion is on any floor other than the ground floor or if there are steps, walkways or other access restrictions to the venue.

For an additional fee the band can arrange an early setup for convenience. 

The band will need to carry out a sound check before they begin their performance so please bear this in mind. This is to ensure volume levels are appropriate for the venue and to diagnose any acoustic or feedback issues.

 

πŸ’₯How Much Space Does The Band Need?πŸ’₯

As a guide the band needs enough room to cater for drums, bass and guitar set up, PA system and lighting rig. The minimum space required is Width -16 ft (4.87 metres) and Length (depth of stage) 10 ft (3.1 metres). 

If Booking the DJs alongside the Band please allow 7-10 metres for Width and 3.5 metres Length (depth of stage). 

We can adapt to spaces and venues but these measurements will give you a guide. If you have also booked a DJ for your event, please can you let them know that the Band will require the above space to set up. 

If you are laying a dancefloor down in a marquee or venue please allow at least 3 metres from the back of any wall to the edge of the dancefloor - so the band can actually fit their equipment in and not be on top of your audience. Failure to do this could result in either damage to the bands equipment (which could result in the band being compensated) and possible injury to your dancing guests. 

Once the equipment has been set up and soundchecked we are not able to move it.  

 

πŸ’₯What Is The Best Time To Have The Band/DJ's Perform?πŸ’₯

This can be arranged when booking, we are flexible to the requirements of your event. Here is our guide based on our extensive experience: 

  • 6:00pm -7:30pm - Sonic Boom Arrive /Set Up / Soundcheck
  • 7:30pm - 9:15pm - DJ/Background Party Music  

           TIP: Cut your Cake / First Dance During This Time / Serve Evening Food

  • 9:15pm - 10:15pm - Sonic Boom 1st Set 
  • 10:15pm - 10:30pm - DJ/Background Party Music 
  • 10:30pm - 11:30pm - Sonic Boom 2nd Set 
  • 11:30pm - 12:00am - DJ/Background Party Music

 

Please note: These times can be flexible as we understand things can over run slightly. 
If you require the use of the bands speakers to play music through after 12am you will be charged per hour.

 

πŸ’₯How Long Does The Band Perform For?πŸ’₯

  • 2 X 60 minute sets plus encores

Sonic Boom are happy to perform one complete set for you without a break if you prefer - this is sometimes better if things over run during the day!

πŸ’₯What Kind Of Music Does The Band Play?πŸ’₯

Sonic Boom play a range of popular party music to get everyone dancing, please see our SET LIST page for all the relevant information. This is updating constantly as we love learning new songs to keep our setlist fresh and fun. Also click here on the bands MEDIA page to hear and see them perform so you get a flavour of what style of music they play.

 

πŸ’₯How Much Voltage Does The Band's Equipment Require?πŸ’₯

 The band needs enough power to cater for all of their PA, lighting and musical amplifiers, so if you are having to hire your own generator for an event, the bands power output will be just under 10KVA, which means that you will need to look at a power source of well over this to ensure that your generator will have enough headroom. 

Please ensure where you can that the band have plug sockets near to their performance area that they can easily plug into.

 

πŸ’₯Do You Offer A DJ Service?πŸ’₯

If you would like a DJ service at your event then please specify during the booking stage and for a small extra cost our bespoke and very unique cool interactive resident female DJ's The Spin Sisters can be booked alongside the band and will be on hand all night to make announcements and take song requests from you and your guests on the night.

πŸ’₯What Music Do You Play Before, Inbetween & After The Live Band Sets?πŸ’₯

If you choose not to book our female DJ service then we can offer the "DJ replacement service" where the band bring background party music to be played post set up, in between the bands live sets and up until midnight or the event finish time (depending on the package you purchase). This music playlist contains popular party music from the soul, motown, funk, pop, indie, and rock genres to cater for everyone. 

Sonic Boom are more than happy to use your own playlist if you want to bring it along on an iPod, iPhone or other device with 3.5mm headphone jack and they will simply plug it into their PA system. 

 

πŸ’₯Can I Play My Own Music Through The Band’s PA System?πŸ’₯

Yes. If you require the use of the speakers through which to play an iPod or other device with 3.5mm headphone jack (first dance etc) then please be aware that there will be a small additional cost if you wish to use the bands speakers beyond midnight.

Most of our packages run until this time (midnight) so you will be charged for every hour past midnight that you require the use of our PA and lighting system.  If you would like a later finish then please make us aware of this during the booking process because if you do not our music and lights will be turned off at midnight.

If you would like a DJ service at your event then please specify during the booking stage and for a small extra cost our resident female DJ's Peachy Mix & DJ Spin can be booked along with the band and will be on hand all night to take requests from you and your guests.

πŸ’₯I Have Other Entertainers/DJ Booked What Do I Need To Tell Them?πŸ’₯

If you have booked other entertainment for your event or wedding (singing waiters /DJ's) we strongly recommend that you:

 

  • Let them know you've booked a band to entertain your guests at your event and what time we will be arriving to set up.
  • Send them our SET LIST page link from this website to avoid any duplication of the same songs played or performed at your event. 
  • Let them know how much room we require to set up and perform our set. 
  • We do not lend or let any other act use our equipment or instruments as it invalidates our insurance policy. Any professional act should have their own Insurance, PAT certificates and Sound/Muscial equipment. This includes any relatives or any friends asking you to perform at your event. This also avoids the dilemma of us having to charge an external party or you if any of our equipment has been damaged from usage at your event.

As a guide the band needs enough room to cater for drums, bass and guitar set up, PA system and lighting rig. The minimum space required is Width -16 ft (4.87 metres) and Length (depth of stage) 10 ft (3.1 metres). 

If Booking the DJs alongside the Band please allow 7-10 metres for Width and 3.5 metres Length (depth of stage). 

We are happy to work with any other professional acts on the night to ensure that your event runs succesfully and smoothly.

 

πŸ’₯Does The Band Have Lighting?πŸ’₯

Yes the band has its own professional lighting rig that they bring to every event they are booked for which helps to create a fantastic ambience.  Click on the bands GALLERY page for pictures of their amazing set up. 

 

πŸ’₯How Loud Is The Band?  Are You Noise Limiter Friendly?πŸ’₯

Sonic Boom is a high energy event band, we are lively and loud to ensure that your guests are dancing all night.  Some venues unfortunately have sound restriction devices called Limiters.  These devices are designed to cut the power to the venue if a certain sound decibel level is exceeded.

 

πŸ’₯What Is A Sound Limiter? Will It Compromise My Party?πŸ’₯

The simple answer is yes it will. A sound limiter does what it says on the tin - limits your party atmosphere. We have seen a gradual increase in venues that are installing sound limiters, either because of location, neighbour complaints or Council restrictions. Very often they will not tell you about this at the time of booking, so please make sure that you check with them "BEFORE" signing any contract.

Unfortunately most limiters are set to a level well below what you need for a good party atmosphere. Bearing in mind that ambient sound from a 100 people talking will get up to 85 /90db many limters are set to 95 decibels (dB) or below. Naturally this gives a band or DJ just 5/10dB of headroom before the limiter starts cutting power, which just not enough. 

For reference we have included in infographic below to show you the decibel or dB level of everyday machines, people or instruments. You will see that 95dB is as only as loud as a Tractor engine and quieter than your average baby crying. As the band uses a live drum kit there is a minimum volume that cannot be changed this is around 105dB or higher.  

 

πŸ’₯What Do I Do If My Venue Has A Sound Limiter Installed?πŸ’₯

You will receive a booking information form from us, where you will need to confirm if there are any noise restrictions or limitations at your chosen venue.  We are happy to discuss these restrictions with your venue and try to reach some compromise. Some venues may be agreeable to bypassing the limiter or raising the dB level, however if they are not then it will completely compromise the band's performance and the package that you are paying for.  We have worked very closeley with venues to still give a great performance despite the sound limiter in the past and have invested in an electric drum set to make these shows possible, however, 95dB or below is not a workable level for us. In most cases at 95dB your guests will set the limiter off just by singing and clapping along. 

The power surges caused by the limiter cutting out, has massive impact to our equipment resulting in damage and so we have taken the decision to no-longer perform at venues that have 95dB limit.

Our minimum performance level with an electric drum kit is 100dB both to preserve some atmosphere for your party and to protect our equipment from power surges. So you will need to make sure that your venue's limiter is set to 100dB or louder for us to play.

Here are some steps you can take to help us both out: 

  • If the venue you have chosen has a sound limiter installed you have to let us know during or after the booking stage - not on the day of the performance. If you don't make us aware and we turn up it may result in us not being able to perform due to not having the right (electric) drum kit with us to control our overall volume. This would mean the venue's limiter would keep cutting our power periodically and without our knowledge. 
  • If the venue you have chosen has had issues regarding nosie complaints with nearby residents please make us aware of this.
  • If the venue you have chosen has a cut off time for the music or the band please make us aware so we can avoid any dispute with the venue's management.  
  • If you have a wedding or an event planner get them to do these checks for you as they should know the venue inside out. 

As a further alternative, we can recommend that you consider asking us to perfom a stripped down acoustic live lounge set which will still provide you with top quality entertainment for your event just at a much lower volume.

The Sonic Boom band always tries to accommodate all types of venue and room size for each and every occasion. 

 

 

πŸ’₯I Want To Serve Food When The Band Is On Or Just Before They Perform. Is this a good idea?πŸ’₯

This is one of the worst party mistakes you can make! One of the most common mistakes to make is organising/serving food just before, or during the Band's first set. This really inhibits your guests ability to fully enjoy the band and will dampen the party atmosphere. No one will dance because they are eating! So please make sure that you allow at least half an hour for your guests to have their meal before the first set start time.

 

πŸ’₯Maximising Enjoyment Of The Band - Stage Location (Marquee)πŸ’₯

One area that often gets overlooked when planning out the evening is where the band are going to be located in relation to the dancefloor and the bar.  You are paying us to provide your guests with a fantastic nights entertainment and so it stands to reason that you will need to think about the ideal position for us to deliver on our promise - to rock their socks off all night. 

It makes our job harder if we are: 1) facing away from the guests or staring at a marquee wall instead of the audience. 2) placed in a corner without enough room for us to interact with and entertain your guests (see How much room does the band need?). 

We have included below two "SB approved" marquee layouts and one "not recommended" layout to give you an idea of what we are talking about.

 

 

 

 

πŸ’₯Will I Need To Organise A Stage For The Band?πŸ’₯

Most wedding venues and marquees do not require us to have a stage purposely built as there is usually an area for the entertainment to set up and perform from. We are happy to do this in most cases and find the majority of venues have the capacity to accomodate the entertainment. However if your event is outside then we will need to be placed in an area that is fully covered and on dry levelled grounding so our electrical equipment does not get damaged in the event of any rain. Failure to provide adequate waterproof covering and levelled grounding for us and our equipment could result in us turning up and refusing to set up due to the risk of our equipment being damaged by the unpredicatable British weather.

If your event has more than eighty people attending then we would also advise strongly that you look into hiring stage facitlites for us to perform on as well as security for much larger events (one hundred plus guests) to manage the guests and our stage area. From our extensive experience nothing dampens an atmosphere at a show when we need to keep stopping our performance mid set due to a drinks/glass spillage on the dancefloor, people slipping on spilt drinks or very drunk guests trying to get onto the stage or performance area when we are trying to do the very job you are paying us for. 

Please note that if any of our equipment gets damaged during the time we are at the event by a guest or anyone else other than the band then we will have to invoice you for the repairs/replacements. It may also lead to us having to stop our perfromance mid set which is something we all want to avoid. We have found from our experience that disclosing all this information during the booking stage that we are in a better position to help you plan a fantastically safe event where everyone has a great time.


Festival themed outdoor weddings are becoming a very popular choice for couples and we have loved performing at them. Our stage requirements for these sort of outdoor events are: Width - 16ft (4.87 metres) and Length (depth of stage) 10ft (3.1 metres). If Booking the DJs alongside the Band please allow 7-10 metres for Width and 3.5 metres Length (depth of stage). 

 

πŸ’₯Where Do I Place A Dancefloor?πŸ’₯

If you are laying a dancefloor down in a marquee or venue please allow at least 3 metres from the back of any wall to the edge of the dancefloor - so the band can actually fit their equipment in and not be on top of your audience. Failure to do this could result in either damage to the bands equipment (which could result in the band being compensated) and possible injury to your dancing guests. 

This will ensure that Sonic Boom are not on top of your guests, as this may result in equipment being damaged or your guests injuring themselves by falling or tripping over our equipment whilst dancing. Please remember you will be invoiced for any equipment broken by you or your guests as a result of ignoring this advice given before your event. 

 

πŸ’₯I Am Having To Hire A Marquee For My Garden Party, What Size Marquee Should I Order?πŸ’₯

We always ask to be placed on dry levelled grounding and to be covered in the event of rain and our equipment being permanently damaged as a result at every event we perform at. Failure to do so could result in us turning upto your event and refusing to set up if we feel there is a risk of us and our equipment being damaged by the unpredictable British weather. We obviously want to avoid this at all costs so here is a measurement guide in METRES so you can liase with your marquee supplier.

We perform at lots of venues and private residents throughout the year so here is some advice if you are unsure about what size marquee you need to accomadate the band /DJ's if you are holding smaller parties outside of your property:

Minimum Size Of Marquee to accomodate the Band /DJ's: 8 metres in Length and 4 metres in Width 

To Accomodate the Band/DJ's and a sustantial amount of guests: 10 metres in Length and 5 metres in Width 

This is a size guide to help you and ensure we can still turn up and perform and remain dry. This is not a size guide for medium to large weddings where your marquee would have to be alot bigger to accomodate us, your guests and other suppliers you have hired.

Remember you can always ask the company you are hiring your marquee from as they will be able to base the amount of people going to your event to the size of the marquee they have available.

Please refer to our band size measurements if you need to pass these details onto a third party. Here they are: As a guide the band needs enough room to cater for drums, bass and guitar set up, PA system and lighting rig. The minimum space required is Width -16 ft (4.87 metres) and Length (depth of stage) 10 ft (3.1 metres).

The band will dress appropriately for each and every occasion, smart cool or casual. To view pictures please check the bands various social media pages or view our 'Instagram' gallery from this website. To see what we look like click on our GALLERY page.

 

πŸ’₯Can Someone Come And Take Pictures Of My Event/Party?πŸ’₯

Our professional band photographer Peachy Pix will usually accompany us at events to capture pictures for our social media pages. Check them out if you haven't already! If you haven't already booked her as part of your party package then we suggest you do. She is the photographer who is responsible for all the superb images on this website and the majority of our social media pictures and videos. 

Not only is she is very talented and friendly, but as most main wedding photographers leave after the first dance they miss capturing the best parts of the night! Have no fear as Peachy Pix can! So whether its capturing dad dancing , grandad or grandma slow dancing, you going crazy with your friends or singing along with the band you won't have to miss out. Her services are included within our platinum party package that we offer which means you will get a minimum of 30 professionally edited images after your event.

You can add on her evening photography service to all of the other packages we offer by just simply messaging us asking for her services to be included and we can send you a quote. Her standard fee means you will recieve  a minimum of 30 professionally edited images after your event. If you require anymore images than this then there will be an addtional fee quoted to you. She will start taking pictures of your party when the band start their set, but if for some reason your main wedding photographer cannot stay for the cutting of the cake and first dance Suzy will be more than happy to take those important photos for a small extra fee. Please let us know at the booking stages if you require this.

This will mean that you will have a minimum of 30 professionally edited high quality images to look back on for years to come. You can't put a price on those sort of memories. Please allow two/three weeks after your event for the images to be sent to you via Wetransfer. You can then simply download them and they are then yours to share and enjoy.

PeachyPix is also one of our female DJ's (Peachymix), so if you have chosen the Diamond party package you will also see her and DJ Spin at your event!

To see more examples of Peachy Pix's work visit her website: www.peachypixuk.com or visit the bands GALLERY page.

 

πŸ’₯My Main Wedding Photographer Missed The Cutting Of The Cake And The First Dance, Can We Get PeachyPix To Take Them ?πŸ’₯

Our event photographer Suzy (PeachyPix) usually starts taking snaps of the party when the band starts their first set - thats what you are paying her for after all- to capture the party. 

Your main wedding photographer should cover the cutting of the cake & first dance but Suzy has in the past been asked to fill in at the last minute and take those special shots for couples as some photographers have left, or can not be found and have missed those all important shots.

If Suzy is asked at the last minute by you on the night to take pictures of the cutting of the cake and your first dance (which should be the job of your main wedding photographer) please be aware that once she has edited those particular first dance images and sent them to you with her watermark on, you will be charged a small extra fee per image for the her watermark to be removed from those particular first dance images.

They will then be yours to keep along with the rest of the images you have booked her to take during the bands set(s).

 

πŸ’₯Do You Have Female Lead Singer Who Can Join You On Stage?πŸ’₯

Yes for an additional fee you can book our female lead singer event package as an add onto the band. Our female lead singer is American vocalist and Youtube Star Nikki Simmons . Nikki has a wealth of musical experience having done her first tour at 17, toured across the entire US,UK and played massive festivals in England, Germany and the world famous Warped Tour in America. 

So if you are looking for a female vocalist with lots of energy, stage presence and a fantastic voice then Nikki is available to book alongside Sonic Boom now at your event so you have a blend of male and female vocals- just let us know during the booking process that you want Nikki to also sing with us at your event and we will provide you with a quote.

πŸ’₯Can My Best Mate Who Appeared On Britains Got Talent, My Grandad Or My Old Next Door Neighbour Get Up And Sing With You?πŸ’₯

If one of your guests would like to sing a song, we are happy to accommodate this request providing that your guest is supervised by a band member and sober enough to use our equipment withour damaging it. We usually have a spare microphone available. Please let us know in advance if this is the case. Unfortunately we cannot allow guests (even if they play an instrument) to use our equipment as it will invalidate our insurance policy.

If you want to sing with the band on the night please read our Platinum or Diamond Wedding/Party packages by clicking on the following links: WEDDING BAND  | FUNCTION BAND | SONIC BOOM IBIZA ROCKS and if you want to purchase this unique one off experience then please click HERE now.

Please refer to section 09. Health & Safety in our TERMS AND CONDITIONS which states: You agree that you are responsible for the conduct of your clients, staff and guests. If at any time during the event we consider that our equipment or ourselves to be under threat,verbally or physically, we reserve the right to terminate the contract without notice. You agree that the full fee shall be payable to us in these circumstances. 

 

πŸ’₯Can I See The Band Play Before Booking?πŸ’₯

Yes. Most of our shows are private events but you can click on the following links and follow the band on Instagram: @sonicboomband and Sonic Booms facebook page to see some of the rare public shows listed. 

Can't make it to a Sonic Boom gig? Then check out our brilliant live videos by clicking on our MEDIA page to watch lots of live videos on our bands facebook page or YOUTUBE channel. They should give you a flavour of how we get a crowd going and what to expect from a Sonic Boom show. 

If you can't make a show but want to read some comments from our previous customers please visit our FEEDBACK page.

 

πŸ’₯Do I need To Feed The Band?πŸ’₯

Sonic Boom will normally be attending your event for a minimum of 7 hours, during this time we can get a little peckish, so a provision for food is built in to our contract, so that we have enough energy to give you the best high energy performance that we can.  Please see our TERMS AND CONDITIONS page for details.

 

πŸ’₯Do We Have Provide A Changing Room For The Band?πŸ’₯

Although we don't expect or demand a changing room we would love it if we were considered if there are events we have been booked for where we have long waiting times before we hit the stage. A warm well lit area for the band to chill in or get changed would be really appreciated. For most marquee and venue weddings we understand this may not be possible and we are happy to mingle with you and your guests (we are a friendly bunch) or find somewhere nearby to relax before we smash your party!

 

πŸ’₯Can We Hire Your PA System/Microphone For Our Speeches?πŸ’₯

We usually arrive at a venue at around 6pm after the wedding dinner and speeches to set up and soundcheck - however lots of couples get married in grand venues or large marquees and require the use of a microphone and PA system for their speeches earlier in the day to all of their guests so everyone can hear them! Some venues already include a PA system/microphone for speeches as part of the wedding package you have booked with them whilst others do not have the facilities to provide this service. 

Don't worry if they haven't, for a small extra cost you can book us to arrive a few hours earlier and set up our PA system and a microphone so all of your guests hear your fantastic and funny speeches! We will also have someone from the band on hand to assist if any technical problems arise so you know you are in safe hands. Please ask for this service specifically during the booking stage and we can supply you with an addtional quote for this extra service. 

 

πŸ’₯Can You Send Me A Risk Assessment?πŸ’₯

We have been asked in the past to send over a band risk assessment by event organisers. This is usually for large corprorate events.

We can supply you with one that we have completed and adhere to at every show we perform at. This identifies all potential risks and how we have addressed each one to minimise the risk of potential injury or damage to us, our equipment and to you and all of your guests.

By reading this FAQ pack we have given you lots of suggestions of how we feel you and your organiser/venue can also minimise any potential hazards at your event , for example- band area/ staging /safe electrical power sources/ enough power for us/ security to manage large scale audiences. All of the bands equipment is PAT tested and we have public liability insurance, both of which can be sent to your venue or wedding planner/events organiser.

Managing risk is not just the bands responsibility but you can be rest assured we take this very seriously and will always be professional and adhere to safe working practices at every event we are booked to perform at. If we do identify a potential risk during the booking stage we will make you aware of it and advise you on possible solutions if we can. If you identify any potential risks please let us know as soon as possible so we can address it together. 

 

πŸ’₯Will I Have To Pay The Band An Advance Payment?πŸ’₯

An advance payment is required for all private functions in order to secure the date as we do not take provisional bookings. This will mean the particular date you have requested is held just for you and we will be turning other customers away for that date once your advance payment has been paid. As stated in point 04. Booking Process in our TERMS AND CONDITIONS this advance payment is non refundable. The remaining payment is required the week leading upto your event via BACs transfer.

 

πŸ’₯Can I Book The Band Provisionally?πŸ’₯

Unfortunately, we don't take provisonal bookings as our demand is such we would be turning clients away on popular dates.

 

πŸ’₯What Happens If One Member Is Really Ill Or Unable To Perform?πŸ’₯

From our years of experience gigging,one thing you can not guarantee is someone falling ill unexpectedly. Now we have all been unable to go to work due to illness and being a professional act we do have musicians we know and trust on standby in case this happens. We will only call upon them like superheroes in extreme circumstances, and luckily all Sonic Boom band members are able to sing live, so if one member is unable to sing usually the other members can.

This may mean we are unable to perform certain numbers and we would have to alter the set alittle but what it wont mean is that we just dont turn up. We will let you know of any changes and still arrive at your event ready to do the best job we can. We take pride in what we do so you will be notified of any line up changes if and when they occur. This is also covered in our TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

 

πŸ’₯How Do I Book An Add-On To My Selected Party PackageπŸ’₯
