The Contacts Live Show

We want you to have the time of your lives at your wedding, so from the moment we start playing, it’s party time! Having worked closely with you in the lead up to your wedding, at the pre-arranged time, we perform your first dance and then seemlessly start our first 1-hour live set.

With so many different musical tastes and ages of your guests, we make sure the whole show is for everyone. Songs and music everyone loves from across the ages, from the 60’s all the way bang up to date with the biggest selling modern tunes. We have pop, rock, funk, disco and modern songs to entertain you. Please see our massive repertoire list for a taste of things to come.

Getting everyone up and dancing and enjoying themselves is our main priority, so not only are the songs we perform popular, we put them in an order that makes sense. Weddings are for family, friends and loved ones - so we keep a warm family feel to the evening, that even the children can dance and boogie to!

After our first 1-hour set is finished, we take a half-hour break (which is flexible due to your evening food being served etc.,) then launch into our final 1-hour set to finish your party off in style.

We are extremely flexible with any of your evening party plans and will help you with any advice when it comes to planning the evening.

The Contacts are extremely proud and excited to part of your wedding from the moment you book us to the very end of the night’s entertainment. To your fantastic night!

Full DJ Service

For our Premium & Exclusive packages, we include our full DJ service. We have one team for the live band and DJ’ing, therefore we take up less room, set-up quicker and offer much better value for money. From the moment you begin your evening reception party to the very end of the night, we look after your full music entertainment.

Before we start our first live set, using our own high quality sound system and superb lighting, we’ll start your party off with a mega disco. Using our massive repertoire of tracks, we get your guests up and dancing to get the atmosphere pumping! Then, from the first disco, we go into the first dance and then into our first live band set. After our first set, we get back on the disco to keep the energy going and then onto our final one-hour live band set. Not finished there, we get back on the disco till the very end of the night, keeping the music flowing and everyone having the time of their lives.

Professional Photo Booth

For our Exclusive package, as well as including all your night’s music entertainment, we include a full sized, professional photo booth! Teaming up with Sterling’s Photo Booths, The Contacts can offer you a party photo booth with unlimited use - there are no restrictions on how many times you and your guests can visit the booth at your wedding! Loads of funny props and fancy dress are supplied, so either dress up or just prepare a selfie pout for that photo - all at the press of the photo booth’s 22” touch screen.

Using state of the art technology, excellent quality photos will be guaranteed in a matter of seconds. The booths use high quality thermal dye digital printers and cameras, allowing prints to be delivered instantly and you receive the best quality prints in the photo booth hire industry. You also have on hand all night a ‘Booth Butler’ to show you how to get the best out of the booth.

Also included is a FREE DVD of all the pictures taken from the night, a FREE guest book of all your pictures and FREE customising of all your prints with any message you’d like. And don’t forget, the booth has complete unlimited use! That’s unlimited instant colour prints and unlimted video messages!
