Hire The Confessions

The Confessions are able to offer a wide range of options to suit your needs, from a compact function band upwards, with full brass, horns and strings. We do, however, recommend a minimum of seven performers to allow for a great mix of both male and female led songs from our repertoire.

Our fees start at £2,440 and can vary from one event to the next, depending on the number of performers and travel expenses. You can use the calculator to get a rough idea, but please bear in mind that these are approximate costs and should only be used as a guide.

We can provide additional live entertainment during your wedding breakfast or drinks reception

Please provide as much detail as possible about your event, especially if you'd like to book additional live entertainment during your drinks reception or wedding breakfast.

All bookings include:

  • Playlist DJ service before, in-between and after live performances
  • The band will learn one special request (eg for your first dance)
  • High quality, fully PAT tested PA and lighting
  • Musician's Union approved contracts
  • Public liability insurance

Common line-ups

  • Seven-piece: drums, bass, keyboard, guitar, one saxophonist, one male lead vocal, one female lead vocal
  • Nine-piece: our standard and most popular line-up. Drums, bass, keyboard, guitar, two saxophonists, one male lead vocal, two female lead vocals
  • Eleven-piece: as above, with added trombone, trumpet, violin, viola, or percussion


  • Standard: two 1000w 15" Electro Voice Front-of-house speakers, floor-based stage lighting and basic dance floor T-bar lighting. Suitable for most small to medium-sized venues
  • Premium: as above, plus two 700W LEM subwoofers, two additional T-bars of dance floor lighting and a stage lighting gantry. Better for larger venues, or if you're serious about great sound and visuals

Standard prices are based on a 5pm or later arrival and midnight finish, including 2x60 or 3x40 minute sets of live performance. Approximately 60-90 minutes are required for the band to set up and sound check (depending on access to the performance area). Alternative timings also available.

We're more than happy to take special requests in advance of the event and include one song as standard with all bookings, though we may ask for a contribution towards rehearsal costs for additional requests.
