If you're searching to find the best wedding band in London who offer a full entertainment package with live music and DJ then look no further! If you're wedding entertainment ideas are different to the norm and you're after a heavy dose of nostalgia, then get on a book the 90's retro-tinted outfit Sega & The Boombox who are one of the most fun bands out there today.
It can be a very difficult task finding the band to perform at your wedding, there are so many to choose from it's hard to know where to start! But with Sega & The Boombox we think we've really come up with the ultimate wedding band package...
Oh my goodness we CANNOT say enough good words about Sega and the Boombox! All of our guests are still raving about how fantastic they were! Calling Sega the greatest wedding band of all time would be doing them a disservice. They're not a wedding band - they're not a Bruno-Mars-crooning, smooth-singing bunch of cheese merchants. These guys bring the party like nobody else. We had them at our wedding a few weeks ago and there is not one person I have hung out with since then that hasn't told me how awesome the band were. Obviously, that you grew up with the soundtrack of the 90s is kind of a prerequisite for Sega but if you did, then they are simply mind-blowingly brilliant. The quality of the musicians, the stunning vocals, the pleasingly 90s clothing references, and the raw, unadulterated energy of them all make Sega one of the best live acts I have ever seen. We were worried about them being a bit niche (i.e. our parents' generation wouldn't dance) but we were wrong. Firstly, the parents did get involved (Nana Joan smashing it up to 50 Cent, In da Club) but they also enjoyed standing back and watching a group of 30-year-old teenagers have an awesome time. If you're on the fence about them - go see them play live (they play a lot) and they will remove any doubts. We went to see them when I was ill - I was up and dancing within 2 songs and didn't stop. Crowd-surfing to Rage's 'Killing in the Name of' will be a memory I treasure for ever... Thank you guys for making our wedding day just THE BEST. xx

BOOK THE BAND
Once you have decided that Sega & The Boombox are the band for you Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the day and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit depending on if you book the live DJ service) to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.
In the lead up to the wedding you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the day. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, first dance, song requests for the disco or DJ, final payment details etc. All of the details will be recorded and sent to the band in one simple final confirmation email, so you can be sure nothing will get missed and everything discussed will happen as planned on the night.
ON THE NIGHT
Sega & The Boombox will arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and ready with their pre-mixed DJ service (or a band member can DJ if you add this to your booking) and will perform 2 hours of live music (2 x 60 minute live sets). The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.
If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the band would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening. If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) the band could arrive while you are eating to get set up (they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches!) - it takes a minimum of 90 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.
A guide to a standard evening reception would be:
- 17:45 - Band Arrive
- 19:00 - Background Music On
- 20:00 - First Dance/First Set (60 mins)
- 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for evening buffet)
- 22:00 - Second Set (60 mins)
- 23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close
Sega & The Boombox' standard price is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there is an additional charge.
The band are very happy to perform your choice of first dance for you as long as they have at least three weeks notice of the song choice.
