Frequently Asked Questions

Booking

DO YOU HAVE PAT TESTING AND PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE?

Yes, we are both fully tested and covered for up to £5 million

CAN I EXTEND THE TIMES/ADD ANOTHER SET?

We are always happy to provide additional live music and can quote accordingly

DO I NEED TO PROVIDE ANY REFRESHMENTS?

We politely request simple food and soft drink to be provided for the 3 of us. If you are not arranging caterers at your event, please just let us know in advance

DOES OUR QUOTE INCLUDE TRAVEL AND EXPENSES?

Yes! When creating a quote we take into account all expenses and travel, so the figure you receive will be inclusive of everything we need with no hidden fees!

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE TIMINGS CHANGE?

We know things don’t always run to plan and we pride ourselves on our flexibility. No matter the circumstances of the night we will do absolutely everything to make sure you get the full performance you have paid for

DO YOU PLAY INTERNATIONALLY?

We certainly do! Go Commando have played all over Europe from Weddings in Italy, to parties in the south of France. Have a look at our Lake Como Wedding

DO I NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT?

To make life simple we ask for a small deposit at the time of booking, which will also secure your date. The remaining balance can be paid in full or in instalments anytime before the day of the event

DO YOU ISSUE A CONTRACT?

We do indeed! Once your date is confirmed you will receive access to your own client login area which will contain all your documents in one convenient place…how good is that?!

WHERE CAN I SEE YOU PLAY BEFORE MY EVENT?

The majority or our calendar is made up of weddings and private functions – sorry… you can’t come! Check out our social media pages for more videos of us in action!

HOW DOES THE DJ OPTION WORK?

Save space in your venue whilst we create seamless transitions between live and recorded music. You can request as many songs as you like with a custom playlist or leave it in our capable hands

Setup

HOW MUCH SPACE DO YOU REQUIRE?

4m x 4m is a perfect amount of space for us and anything bigger is a bonus. However we have squeezed into smaller spaces – no matter what the size you will always get the same high energy performance. Please email pete@ilovetogocommando.com if you have any concerns

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO SET UP?

Setting up the full band with lights and PA will take 1 hour from the time that we have access to the room. We know that sometimes things don’t always run to schedule and understand a sound check is not always feasible.  Should you require the band to be set up before your guests arrive we are also able to accommodate this

DO YOU PROVIDE LIGHTING?

Absolutely! Go Commando come fully equipped with the very best DMX controlled lighting, including moving heads, chasers and smoke machines all perfectly in sync with our stage show!

WHAT IF OUR VENUE HAS A SOUND LIMITER?

Go Commando play many functions of different shapes, sizes and audiences and expertly tailor the volume to suit the venue and number of people. We regularly work with sound limiters, so if your chosen venue happens to have one, it’s no problem at all! Also check out our sound limiter blog

DO I NEED TO PROVIDE A PA/ SOUND SYSTEM?

We are fully equipped with a 6000 watt HK Audio PA to provide sound and lighting for audiences up to 500 people, for larger audiences just let us know how many guests you are expecting and we can arrange an appropriate system.

HOW MUCH POWER DO YOU REQUIRE?

Two regular 13Amp sockets will normally suffice but if you’re not sure, we’re happy to liaise with your venue

Performance

WHAT DO YOU WEAR?

We always try to be in keeping with the theme of the event, whether it be a Wedding or a Hawaiian themed Luau, you can be sure we will look the part!

HOW LONG DO YOU PLAY FOR?

Our standard set lengths are 2 x 1 hours but contact us if you fancy something a little different

CAN WE REQUEST A FIRST DANCE?

We do have a list of first dances that we have already prepared or we can learn a custom song for a small charge to cover our time in rehearsal. If you prefer, you can save money by having your first dance played over the soundsystem and we can come in with a bang straight after…it’s totally up to you! Either way, we pride ourselves on creating a set list that will keep your dance floor full all night
