Frequently Asked Questions 


How long do the band play for?

 We usually play 2 sets of 45 minutes. If you would prefer a different arrangement (e.g one set or even 3 shorter sets), then please ask and we will do our best to accommodate you.


What do the band wear?

 Tall Order usually dress in formal attire but if you have any specific requests then please feel free to ask.


What happens between and after your performance? Can Tall Order provide a disco?

 We can provide music to play through our system both before, in between sets and 30 minutes after we have finished playing. We can either play our own music or you can play your personal playlists through an Ipod.


Can you play suitable music for dinner and for mingling as well as tunes to get people up and dancing?

 Tall Order play mostly jazz and therefore can easily provide the perfect music for when your guests are just arriving or sitting down to dinner. We also have plenty of songs which are familiar to both young and old and guaranteed to get grandpa and a fussy 16 year old clicking their fingers. Just try not nodding your head to Bobby Darin’s classic ‘Beyond The Sea’!


Do the band have insurance?

 Tall Order have adequate public liability insurance for your peace of mind. Copies of cover certificate are available on request.


How do I book the band and get a quote?

 Simply send us an email or use the Contact page and we will do our best to get back to you within 24 hours. Please include details such as: start and finish times, date and location, number of guests, size of room and duration of live music needed.


Do you travel?

 We are based in Bournemouth but can travel all over the UK. There will be an extra charge for this and you may need to provide accommodation if necessary.


What do the band require?

All Tall Order require is a modest performing space with access to just 1 power point. As many events are in the evening then food and drink would also be much appreciated!


Is there an opportunity to see the band live?

 We currently play regularly in various venues around Dorset; either get in touch through our email or our Facebook page.


Is it possible to just have a singer (with backing tracks) without sax?

 Yes. Singer Kristian can perform a 1 hour set without a sax accompaniment. We use bespoke, quality backing tracks so the sound that you get is still very atmospheric and tasteful.To listen to Kristian’s solo demos please get in touch or take a listen to our demos.
