Acoustic Duo Booking Guide

Looking to hire an acoustic duo band but not quite sure where to start? Below you'll find answers to some of the most common queries about acoustic bands.

How much does it cost to hire an acoustic duo?

The price to hire an acoustic duo varies, but in general, fees on our website start at approximately £500.

Several factors affect the price of a duo such as travelling distance, extended performance times and how in-demand the musicians are.

What style of music do acoustic duos play?

There's no limit to the range of style and genres an acoustic duo can perform. You'll find our acoustic bands put their own unique spin on everything from classic 60s tracks to modern chart and dance music.

Some of the most popular genres our acoustic duos perform include 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Garage, soul, Motown, R&B, folk, indie, pop, rock and modern chart-toppers.

What type of events are acoustic duos suitable for?

An acoustic duo is perfect for a whole range of events. Our acoustic duos are regularly booked for corporate events, corporate dinners, birthday parties, wedding ceremonies and reception music, as well as evening entertainment.

Many of our acoustic duos are more than happy to get the party going in the evening, offering an inclusive package to combine live acoustic sets with additional DJ sets.

How long does an acoustic duo play for?

Our acoustic duos quote for two sets with a short break, usually either 2 x 45, 2 x 50 or 2 x 60 minutes.

If you'd like your duo to sing during your wedding ceremony as well as the afternoon drinks reception, we're always happy to offer bespoke quotes to suit your schedule and requirements.

Do acoustic bands provide a PA system?

Yes, all of our acoustic duos and artists provide a small PA system within the price. If your venue doesn't allow amplified music, many of our acoustic acts and roaming bands will be happy to perform unplugged/unamplified. Just let us know in your enquiry, and we'll send over some suitable options.

How long does it take an acoustic duo to set up and sound check?

An acoustic duo usually takes about an hour or less to set up their PA system and perform a quick soundcheck.

How do I book an acoustic duo?

We make hiring an acoustic duo a stress-free process. Simply follow the steps below to make your booking:

  • Step 1. Browse through our acoustic duos and enquire through the artist's page.
  • Step 2. We'll check availability and send you a bespoke quote for your event.
