I'm not sure which artist I want, can someone help me?
For no obligation help and advice please submit an online enquiry for the most suitable artist you’ve found so far, or else call us on 0845 108 5500 and one of our entertainment coordinators will be happy to assist. Our offices are open 9am – 5.30pm Monday to Friday. Once your enquiry has been made, whether by phone or online, the same coordinator will look after you from start to finish so you’ll always deal with the same person and they’ll work with you to understand exactly what you’re looking for. Your coordinator will be able to make recommendations based on the information you provide and on any artist selections that you’ve already made. If you have found one artist you like, we can answer any questions you have about them and if required, discuss the differences between them and other similar artists so you can compare a range of options and quotes. The more specific you can be about what you want the more easily we’ll be able to help. Think about what style of entertainment you want, what you want the entertainment to achieve (dancing, mood setting, ice breaking etc), how much you want to spend and how much space you have. Do you want lively, calming, modern, funky, sophisticated, cool, mature, young, vibrant etc. All these descriptions will help us to make a suitable recommendation.
Can I see the artist live before booking?
In most circumstances this is not possible as we work with bands and artists specialising in performances at private functions. By the nature of the fact that they are private, we cannot obtain access. Bands who regularly play at pubs are probably not the type you’d hire for an important private party as pubs don’t pay the money required for top quality acts. On the very rare occasion that an artist might be doing a public show, it’s impossible to guarantee that by the time the show takes place, that the artist will still be available for your event. The best artists get booked very quickly so if you find one that you like, you are much safer basing your decision to hire on the strength of their demos, play list, biography and references from other customers. Your Alive Network coordinator will also be able to offer their personal recommendation and many artists now also have video which enables you to get a good flavour of their performance style.
Well, what I can say... these guys are true professionals. The Alive Network website is fantastic, you can hear samples of the band before you book and check availability online, which is absolutely great. Nothing seemed too much trouble and this certainly shows your commitment to customer service. Thanks for making this part of the event so easy to organise, larger organisations should take lessons from you in customer service.
I just wanted to say how extremely impressed we have been with not only the FANTASTIC entertainment provided but also with Alive Network. I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend you and to use your company time and time again.
Alive Network was a great help in organising my performers, and I will definitely be recommending them to my friends. Thank you all for the help I have received, and for having such an outstanding customer service team.
