Here are some of the most common questions we are asked about Wedding functions. If your query is not covered here please do not hesitate to contact us where we will do our best to answer your questions.
Q. Do The TRILOGY BAND play all over Ireland?
A. Yes the TRILOGY BAND covers the whole country.
Q. How do we book The TRILOGY BAND for our Wedding or Function?
A. Call or email to check availability of the date. We can then provide you with a quote and a deposit of 25% will confirm the bands booking for your special occasion.
Q. Should I have the band play the music for the First Dance, or is a CD better?
A. Most people prefer to have a CD, since this is the “exact version” of their special song. However, in some cases we can play the song for you. If you prefer you can talk to us about how to select a good song for this part of the evening.
Q. How long will the band play for?
A. Usually, we quote for a 2.5 hour set. We recommend 2 x 75 minute sets, with a 20 minute break.
Q. Where can I see The TRILOGY BAND perform live?
A. We play regularly at open venues in the Dublin, Wicklow and Westmeath areas. Most of our other performances are held at private functions therefore we regret that we are not always able to invite potential clients to watch us at these events.
Q. Do I need to hire a DJ or other entertainment in addition to the band?
A. After considering the time taken for speeches and buffet etc you may find that the band alone fills the majority of the evening time. We can however organise a DJ as part of the package
Q. Can you set up before the meal?
A. Setup before the meal can be arranged for an extra fee, although in most cases its not necessary. There is a natural gap after the meal and speeches, during which most guests will want to stretch their legs. This is when we can take the opportunity to set up.
Q. Do you play waltzes?
A. Yes. We usually play a few waltzes if requested. If they are not required, however, we have no problem leaving them out!
Q. Do you let people get up and sing?
A. We find that getting people up to sing usually disrupts the natural flow of the evening when the band is playing. We can however organise, if the bride and groom request, to allow a singer up to use our PA system at the break or at the end of the band’s performance.
Q. What do you wear on stage?
A. The men dress in black shirts and trousers and the female singer wears an appropriate dress.
