I'm contacting you on behalf of The Slicknotes - a Colchester based 10-piece function band - we are keen to exhibit at Suffolk Wedding Show - could you let me know of availability and further information on the cost etc?
We would also be happy to perform to visitors at various intervals throughout the day, either outdoors/indoors - if this is of interest, we would ask if a discount could be negotiated on the cost of exhibiting (obviously no performance fee would be charged), as this would mean leaving our stand un-manned whilst performing. We can provide our own sound technician & equipment if needed, including a PA system.
I've copied some general info on the band below for reference.
I look forward to hearing from you.
