Origins – The band members are all from a musical/dramatic background. Matthew our musical director formed “The Redfords” after his retirement from Universal Records, recording and performing extensively in the US, establishing a home based family run business.
About the band – The Redfords are a live band comprising of guitar, bass and drums, with male and female lead vocals. We specialise in harmony singing and “mash ups” meaning the transition from each song in set are seamless keeping people on the dance floor.
Music – We play music that speaks to all generations performing songs from all the decades of popular music. Adding songs to their repertoire nearly every week to keep up to date.
First dance – We will learn and perform live the first and father/daughter dance at no extra cost.
Real DJ – For music between band sets we also provide an on stage DJ to take requests rather than the standard iPod playlist.
Performance time – 150 minutes of live music split into either two or three sets, depending on the time available between the first dance and the venue’s curfew.
Stage lighting and set up – We take care to ensure that our musicians and our stage area look as good as we sound, we do this by ensuring that our professional lighting equipment and stage production is second to none and is at the same standard that you would expect to see on any professional concert stage.
Piece of mind – The Redfords are a band – not a music agency, meaning the same musicians will attend every function, though we do have trusted deputy musicians that can attend in the event of illness.
Exclusivity – The Redfords offer exclusivity on all bookings – we do not split the band in order to attend more than one function, ensuring that the continuity and quality of our product is not compromised
Sound limiter Friendly – In order to meet the sound requirements of many of Kents venues, the Redfords are proud to be 100% sound limiter friendly, without compromising the quality of the performance or the experience of the audience.
Party Hats and Dance floor Photo Booth – After the formal first dance is over, people like to let their hair down and party, in the second band set we introduce the audience to our now famous box of party hats, wigs, masks and crazy glasses.
Photos – Our events photographer is on hand to capture those unique relaxed dance floor moments at no extra cost. Pictures of the evening are loaded to a private dedicated website. Clients are able to download their favourite low resolution images free of charge. High resolution images are available from The Redfords for a small fee, these are provided on a USB stick or prints. We also upload a selection of these photos to our Facebook and Instagram page and tag the wedding venue.
The acoustic duo (guitar and two vocals) will learn and perform songs of clients choice to enhance their ceremony. We also provide live background music during the drinks reception ensuring that guests are entertained whilst the official photography takes place.
