Reviews

WOW!

"WOW! What can I say about The Hey Yahs?!

Absolutely fantastic, right from the start of the booking process to guiding us through our wedding and what we might want/what would suit the event. We were kept informed every step of the way. On the big day, the set up was quick and everyone was so helpful and lovely. The music was just amazing on the night and the band even learned our first dance which I will remember forever. Our guests had an absolute blast and are still talking about the band to this day!

You blew us away with everything you did for us and the surprise rendition of Fairytale of New York at the end was just the absolute perfect ending to an incredible day. Couldn’t thank you enough and will be singing your praises for a long time to come yet!"

BLOWN AWAY!

"If you are thinking of booking a band for your event – STOP, you’ve just found it.

I’ve had the pleasure of seeing these guys perform on a number of occasions, so last year when I was celebrating a special birthday, there was no question about the entertainment.

Whatever you are planning, this band will add more than you thought possible. My guests ranged from 18 to 89 and everyone was absolutely blown away by The Hey Yahs, whether they were up boogying or watching from their table.

The energy is infectious, the talent and professionalism outstanding and the vibe is incredible. I’ve seen them raise the roof at a wedding, parties and bring the house down in a venue holding over 400 people, they are fabulous and have an extensive repertoire for you to chose from. These musicians are magicians, book them now before you are disappointed."

BRILLIANT!

"Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!  

The Courtyard is a 400-seat theatre in Hereford and regularly hosts The Hey Yahs on its main stage.


I cannot rate this band highly enough. The whole of the audience is on its feet throughout the performance creating a fantastic atmosphere. With their awesome sound, stage presence and brilliant musicianship,


it is not surprising they are one of Herefordshire’s most popular and loved bands. The Hey Yahs….an exceptional band, amazing people and I cannot rate them highly enough."

FAQs

How do I book you? 

You can contact us via our website contact form or email info@theheyyahs.com or give us a call on 07738264749. We are happy to dicuss your event needs and any queries you may have prior to booking us.


Once we have established availability for your date and you want to go ahead, we will issue a booking agreement with all the details we have confirmed with you. 

How much do you cost?

We offer a range of price options, with our variety of musical line ups. Our prices factor in the type of event, the location, timings, and your budget. Please speak to us about your requirements and we can discuss pricing options. 


We ask for a 20% (non refundable) deposit to confirm the booking and will issue a contract agreement to establish all details. Final payment is required in advance of the event date and will be invoiced when due. You can pay by cheque, bank transfer or Paypal.  

What are your timings?

We require 1.5-2 hours to set up and sound check before the event start time. We like to do this prior to the venue being used by you and your guests, so as to minimise any disruption on the day and so you can relax knowing all is taken care of. If it isn't feasible to set up early, we are happy to sort whilst the venue is in use and will be as discreet as possible. 


We typically play either 2 x 60 minutes or 3 x 40 minutes sets with a break in between each. We recommend other activities and any food are completed before the performances begin, so you are free to dance the night away! An optional virtual disco to end the evening can be booked for an additional fee, up to 3 hours after our final set - if you've got any energy left after dancing to us! 


We can be flexible to suit your event timings, so just let us know what your plans are. From our range of experience and event management expertise, we can advise on what timings tend to work best for your type of event. 

Do you do requests?

If you would like a specific song played e.g. for yout First Dance, please let us know in advance of the event. It may already be on our playlist!

 

If a requested song is not on our list or you are looking for something a bit different or more bespoke, we are happy to put something together for you. An additional fee for arranging and rehearsing the music will be charged for this service. Ideally we ask that you give at least 6 weeks notice of any song request. 


We compile our setlists to suit each event, using our professional experience of performance, knowing what works best musically and to ensure guests remain entertained throughout. We are happy to discuss the set with you to make sure we know what feel you want for your event.

Do you provide a DJ? 

We provide iPod background music in between our sets inclusive of our fee. We will also play party background music whilst we pack away at the end of the evening. 


For an additional fee, we offer a virtual disco/DJ service via our PA, after the last set has finished until the specified end time - up to 3 hours after our sets or until 2am. Alternativley we can arrange a Live DJ for you.


You can also provide your own background music on a compatipble device for us to play via our PA, if preferred.

How far do you travel?

We are based in the Three Counties area in the West Midlands and will travel for events up to 25 miles of our radius with no additional charge.


We also perform into Wales, Shropshire, The Cotswolds, London and beyond. We are available to play anywhere in the World if you want to book us! 


Travel expenses will be factored into your booking fee. 

What else do I need to know?

We have full Public Liability Insurance and all our equipment is PAT tested.


If you need to use our PA for speeches, just let us know and we will arrange for it to be ready for you. 


We recommend a stage/floor space area of 5m x 3m for us to set up in, but we are pretty adept at working in most spaces. If the venue is local to us we may already know the space, or we are happy to visit local venues to check the area and liaise with the organisers. 


We provide all our own stage lighting, PA and musical equipment. 


We will dress to suit the occassion, but if you have a specific theme or dress code in mind, just let us know and we will happily join in!


We are here to help you through the booking process and answer any queries you may have. We have many years experience of organising music for a wide variety of events, so can provide solid advice on how the musical entertainment for your event can work.
