Frequently asked questions
What kind of music do you specialise in?

How far do you travel?
All McLaren Artists' are available for UK and destination weddings worldwide, as is our full production service. I'll take care of all travel, accommodation and transfer logistics for each band member leading up to the performance, and on the day too. Relax and enjoy your special day, knowing that all entertainment is taken care of.
Can you play in a wedding venue with sound restrictions?
Sound limiters are becoming more and more commonplace these days at venues, and bands have adapted to suit. In the event that your chosen venue has a sound limiter, I would generally recommend a quick chat with the venue to discuss the precise dB level, and make a decision based on that.
How long will it take you to set up?
This will vary based on the size of the act, and equipment associated to it. This could range from thirty minutes to two hours plus. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements in detail, and I'll be happy to help.
How long are your sets?
Most artists will perform between 1.5 hours - 2 hours in total. Typical performance timings for example may be: 2 x 45 minutes 2 x 1 hours 3 x 40 minutes
What do your prices start from?
Please get in touch for all pricing information.
Do you take requests on the day?
Many artists will be happy to play requests on the day, and love interaction.
Will you learn a specific song for our wedding?
Most Artists will be happy to learn a specific song for you, like a first dance. We may even be able to offer some floor filling suggestions if you're feeling a little unsure. Get in touch today to discuss your requirements, and I'll be happy to help.
