What do your prices start from?

Heatwave can canter for a range of budgets, offering a 4piece, 5piece, or 6piece band. Prices start from £1,650 and will increase as more performers and addition extras are added.

How far do you travel?

Heatwave travel across the UK and the world performing at weddings. No venue is too big or small, so get in touch and we can discuss how you can have Heatwave performing for your big day!

Can we request specific songs for the playlist or set list?

We work with couples to create a playlist catered to their musical tastes. Often we will ask for a list of favourites and least favourites from our full repertoire and then build the set list from there. As wedding music experts, we know exactly what will get people up and dancing, so you can rely on us to set the perfect atmosphere.

How long will it take you to set up?

As standard, Heatwave arrive at 6pm and allow 90 minutes of set up time. If you would like a band to arrive and set up earlier in the day, just let us know and we can edit this for your booking.

Do you provide daytime entertainment?

Yes. The heatwave duo can provide a fantastic backdrop to your ceremony or drinks reception. The duo is made up of an acoustic guitarist and female singer. You can also add on percussion or saxophone to enhance the experience!

How long are your sets?

We offer 2 x 60 minute sets as standard, however, we can provide extra evening sets or even daytime entertainment if you'd like.

What kind of music do you specialise in?

Heatwave perform a range of musical genres including pop, motown, soul, disco, funk, R&B and modern chart music. Our goal is to fill the dance floor with guests across any age range!

Can we suggest songs for the band to play?

Absolutely! We have a sample set list on our page so that you can get an idea of the type of music that we plays. If you’d like to see a full repertoire list, just let us know.

What Are PLI And PAT Certificates?

A lot of venues require a copy of musicians public liability insurance in order for them to perform. For this reason, we make sure that all of our acts hold up to date PLI and PAT certificates that can be forwarded to you on request.

Can we see you play or watch a video before we book you?

Heatwave do not perform public shows, however we have some fantastic 'real-wedding' videos for your to check out! We also have a long form live video (available on requests) so that you can see a 30min version of a Heatwave wedding set.

How much does it cost for Heatwave to provide the music at my wedding

Whilst our prices do vary, a standard Heatwave 5 piece band booking usually costs between £1800 - £2000. The price will then increase if you choose to add on extras, such as saxophone, acoustic sets, or enhanced AV

How much is it to add a saxophone player

We charge £380 for any additional band members. The most common option here is a saxophone player, but this could also be an addition vocalist.

What do you charge for an upgraded sound and lighting package

We are very pleased to be able to offer an advanced AV package that include an upgraded PA system, fully wireless musicians and enhanced lighting. The fee for this package is £400.
