What We'll Do At Your Event

The New Few | Party Band Brighton, East Sussex

Arrival, set up and soundcheck

Normally, we'll arrive at 6pm, but we can arrive earlier (before 5pm) for a small extra fee. Once we've let the venue know we've arrived we'll find out where the stage is and begin to transport our gear from the van to the performance area.

If the access to the venue is straightforward, load-in can take 30mins but allow up to an hour for difficult access.

Setting our gear takes us around 30 minutes then we do a full volume soundcheck.

Soundcheck is important to get the right balance between instruments and to check that we don't hit the sound limit, which your venue may or may not have. *Please check whether your venue has a sound limiter and warn us in advance so we can adapt our set up. This can take 10-30 minutes.

After set up

During the period before we get on stage to begin our first set, we shall: meet the organisers; eat (a hot meal would be ideal); drink (soft drinks) and get changed into our stage clothes in a secure room which you should provide (not the loos!).
This period is usually from 7:30 - 8/8:30pm if you have chosen the 6pm arrival.

1st live set

From past experience, the typical time to go on stage for the first set is anytime from 9pm, but it is up to you whether you want us on earlier or later.

After the first live set, we shall put on our party music playlist to run from our laptop with a huge collection of songs from all eras of music, through our PA.

If you have chosen our DJ option, one of us will be on hand to take requests and make announcements during the interval.

The interval between live sets in usually around 45 minutes - perfect for serving a buffet or reflecting on our first set with your fellow guests!

2nd live set & end of the night

It's time to get excited again as we come back on stage to rock the final hour of live music.
We highly recommend that we are scheduled to come on for the final hour of your event. This creates a great natural end to the night and everyone goes home (or to bed) on a buzz.

Once the second and final set is complete we'll take a bow and put our instruments down. If we have finished before midnight, or whatever the agreed time is, we'll put the laptop playlist back on until the very end.

It is likely we'll come straight off stage to talk to guests and leave packing away for 20 minutes or so.

Packing up takes around 30 minutes to 1 hour.
