From the start your enquiry will be dealt with by leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top live bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available 0800 564 2240 / iinfo@vintageweddingentertainment.comand will be very happy to hear from you


Once you have decided that The Rustiques are the band for you Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the event and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.


In the lead up to your party you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the evening. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, set preferences, song requests for the disco or DJ, final payment details etc. All of the details will be recorded and sent to the band in one simple final confirmation email, so you can be sure nothing will get missed and everything discussed will happen as planned on the night.


The Rustiques will arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and pre-mixed disco (or a band member can DJ if you add this to your booking) and will perform 2 hours of live music (2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets). The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.

A guide to a standard evening party would be:

  • 17:30 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On For Welcome Drinks
  • 20:00 - First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for buffet if you’re having one, and if it’s a birthday, perfect time for doing the cake!)
  • 22:00 - Second Set (60 mins)
  • 23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close

Timings are flexible to suit your needs and live sets can be split 3 x 40 mins if you prefer. The standard price for The Rustiques is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there is an additional charge.

The band are very happy to perform a special request for you as long as they have at least three weeks’ notice of the song choice.

To discuss hiring The Rustiques to perform at your party please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email iinfo@vintageweddingentertainment.com.

The Rustiques are based in the Hampshire area, and are hired all across the U.K. including Southampton, Salisbury, Portsmouth, Petersfield, Winchester, Guildford and more.

The whole day was dream, we're still processing it all!! The band was great, the playlist was amazing and they absolutely nailed the first dance request. We've had so many compliments on the choice of the band and set up and couldn't imagine it going better than it did. Please pass along the biggest thank you!

Wedding, Larmer Tree Gardens, Wiltshire
We had the most amazing wedding day on 5th August and we can't thank The Rustiques enough for being so amazing in the evening. Their performance of 'Amazed' for our first dance was so special and both their sets were incredible. We both loved that the two sets were different styles and this was a big factor in our booking in the first place but they worked so well on the day and we had so many positive comments from our guests about how fab they were. There was always people on the dance floor and nobody wanted the night to end! I will see if I can dig out any videos to send you but please do pass on our thanks to the guys - we are so grateful to them for being such a big part of our day. Thank you so much - from start to finish the communication with Tailored Entertainment was amazing and the band were fantastic on the night!

The Rustiques surpassed our expectations. The music we had at our wedding was really important to us and the band made our night! We had people on the dance floor all night and the band really read the room well. The mix of different styles was brilliant and all the guests told us how much they loved it. I can’t recommend them enough.

The Rustiques were absolutely brilliant, totally made our party and were a pleasure to host. We had lots of compliments as to how good they were and we’d definitely recommend. Working with Tailored Entertainment was brilliant too, so seamless and would also highly recommend to others.
