Hire Music Bands Hampshire for Private & Public Events
As one of the most booked bands in Hampshire (100+ bookings/year), Light and Shade are able to provide entertainment as a duo, trio or larger band. In this way we're able to supply a completely different night of music entertainment while still being perfectly suitable for any event. This also includes pub events, functions, weddings, restaurant functions or private parties. With this in mind, in theory you could book us for three consecutive nights (Friday, Saturday and Sunday for example) and each night we would play entirely different sets of music.

Frequently Asked Questions for Hampshire Band Hire:
I'm considering many live duos and bands in Hampshire, why hire Light and Shade?As regular performers, we are full-time and professional musicians; this is our job. So, we take all bookings and events seriously (in a fun way!), as opposed to a "weekend laugh" of part-time musicians. This also means that we have professional quality, PAT tested and insured equipment & lighting to ensure a good quality sound and safety of all. Additionally, we always care for your requirements & priorities and play cover versions of songs that fit you, your guests/customers and the atmosphere of the event/venue. Light and Shade 2-piece band in Hampshire is very different to acoustic duos. We have the ability to create versatile sounds (from light background music to party dance music) and be as loud as you want us to be. We're basically a one band live music solution! 🙂 We're also available to book as a larger band. Plus, booking us is easy; just use our simple enquiry form below!
Is it possible to see your band perform in Hampshire before I book you?If it's not a private function, of course you can! Just contact us to enquire about our local public events, come down and enjoy your time with us. However, all demo tracks made available on the website were recorded live to represent how we sound.
How do I hire you?Just fill out our enquiry form below with as much detail as you can and we'll get back in touch with our quote. Once confirmed, we're booked! 🙂
How far will you travel as a Hampshire band?Light and Shade covers the whole of Hampshire. We regularly perform in Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Berkshire, Surrey and West Sussex. Occasionally, we travel even further for special or private events and festivals.
What are the band's parking requirements?If your venue has off-street parking, for the duo only 1 parking space will be needed.
How long does the Hampshire band play for?Our usual sets include 2 x 45 minutes or 2 x 60 minutes or 3 x 45 minutes of live music with recorded music playing during the break. However, changes can be made to suit your requirements and perform shorter (for example 1 x 60 minute set for a care home activity performance) or longer sets.
How long does the Hampshire band take to set up/sound check?Typically we arrive at the venue an hour before the performance and our set up usually takes 30 minutes. This gives us plenty time for sound check, which doesn't take more than a few minutes.
Does the Hampshire band need a stage? How much space do you need?In the duo set up, our minimum space requirement is 2 meter squared; whether that's a stage, marquee or a window alcove!
What is the band's power requirement?In the duo set up, we will need a space with minimum one plug socket, or an extension lead's reach away.
What will you wear?We always dress smart casual for our performances. If you have a specific dress code i.e. black-tie for your event, this can be discussed and arranged.
Can I choose songs you will perform at my event/function/venue in Hampshire?Yes. Feel free to have a look at our repertoire and pick the songs you'd like to hear at your event. Do you want to hear a specific song from us? We do not charge extra to learn and perform an additional song for you. Request away! 🙂
Will you be able to play our first dance song at our wedding?Of course! This won't cost you anything extra!
How loud will you be?As loud as you want us to be. We are favourite amongst venues with sound limiters. As well as we can bring all the party noises, we have complete volume control to avoid sound limiter or licence issues.
Does the Hampshire band have own lighting and equipment?Yes. We have our own professional sound and PA system with lighting both for the band and the dance floor.
Can I make a provisional booking?Yes, we can hold a date provisionally reserved for you. If another booking arises for the same date before you decide/confirm we will let you know and if still tentative, we would unfortunately have to take the confirmed booking.
How much does it cost to hire the Hampshire band or duo?We work out or costings in relation to travel time & distance, performance duration and any additional requirements. It is best to get in touch and receive an accurate quote for your live music requirements.
Do you provide music when band is not playing?Yes. We always have music ready to play during the break if required.
