Yes. Punch The Air also offer a laptop/iPad DJ service inbetween their live performances and after the band have finished performing until midnight, so your guests can continue to dance the night away. We have a huge library of music and have been performing this service for many years so we really know how to keep the party going. This DJ service can also continue after midnight at an extra cost.
Punch The Air have regularly been playing live together for over four years. They are in no way new to the function band circuit having played in many bands prior to this.
We usually arrive and set up from approx 6pm onwards for an 8.00pm start. Other arrangements can be made but this may incur additional fees.
Please allow at least an hour and thirty minutes for the band to set up the PA system, lighting, drum kits, instruments and run through a quick sound check and then get changed into their stage wear.
Ideally we require at least 6 meters width by 3 meters depth, but we can also accommodate smaller sizes if necessary. We do not require a raised stage to perform on, but its always a welcome addition as it gives more of a real “Venue” feel. The more space you are able to provide us with the better we can perform.
We require at least 4 independent 13 amp sockets near the stage.
Somewhere for band members to get changed into their “Stage Wear”. (Not a public toilet)
Parking spaces for 3 vehicles.
We perform in smart/casual attire as per the images on this website. We wear slim fit shirts, skinny ties, slim fit suit jackets, skinny jeans and Converse All Star trainers. We look like a proper Rock & Roll band crossed with a smart wedding band. Please check out the band image here.
We often leave home mid afternoon and do not get back until the very early hours the next day, we therefore request that the band is provided with food and unlimited soft drinks while at your event. This can be as simple as bottled water and buffet type food, but a warm meal is always very welcome.
We require a minimum of 15 minutes break between live sets. This can be extended out to suit your requirements.
Punch The Air have always found that “Your” special song is your special song performed by the original artist in the way you know and love it and as such do not provide this service. But all you need to do is email us the MP3 and we’re easily able to play this over our PA system for you (With us waiting on stage) ready to kick into our live set when it ends to get everyone up and dancing. This is how we’ve always done it over the many years we’ve been together and it works perfectly.
Yes, Punch The Air have Public Liability Insurance and all our our equipment is Portable Appliance (PAT) Tested. Documentation is available upon request.
As long as we are made aware of noise limiters at venues prior to booking we are still able to accommodate you with live music for your event.
