What band line-ups do you offer?
We offer anything from Irish music duos and trios composed of a combination of our members to our full 4 piece band depending on the size and nature of your event. Contact us for more details.
How much does it cost?
Our prices start from £280 for music only gigs and from £500 for céilidhs. These figures are very dependent on the location of the venue, the length of time you need us to play and the number of musicians available/requested. Let us know if you have a budget in mind and we'll be happy to discuss it with you.
How long can you play for?
We usually play for two 45 minute sets with a short break in between to grab a drink but, if you have different requirements for your event, let us know.
Do you do céilidhs/dances?
Yes! Take a look at our south wales céilidh page for more info.
Do you have a PA?
As we mainly play acoustic instruments, our sound is best carried by a PA system at larger events. We have our own PA system which we can bring to your event for no extra charge. We can also use an existing PA if there is a dedicated person at the venue to do our sound checking. If you would like us to use our own PA, we would ask for there to be electricity sockets near where you would like us to play (we can bring extension leads if required). We can also play acoustically - this option is perfect for pub gigs and small venues. We're always happy to discuss your exact requirements so please get in touch.
Do you do requests?
We can learn specific traditional songs if you let us know well in advance. The best thing to do is to discuss it directly with us, we might already know it!
Do you have a CD?
Not yet.... but watch this space!
If you still have a question, send us an email to hairpinbendband @ gmail.com (take out the spaces) and we'll get back to you ASAP.
