Requesting singers or specific band members can make things very complicated for us,especially when some bookings are far in advance, so we do not offer an option to pick andchoose certain individuals.
The Distractions Duo perform at over 60 weddings per year and with everyone needing time offfor holiday or other projects it’s all down to availability on the date which we often don’t know untilmuch nearer the time.
The Distractions are a collective, and with each member having been carefully selected for theirtalent, each one is as important to the workings of the group as the other. If you have a certainrequest, you can by all means raise this with us during the booking process but as with any show,we cannot guarantee individual band members availability 100%. As a general rule, guaranteeingindividuals far in advance would be a poor reflection of their quality as an artist.
Unless circumstances beyond our control occur, our singers showcased on our videos are theartists that are currently working with the band the most and generally will perform at 90% of ourevents. Should they need to be replaced, we have a roster of top quality stand-ins who workregularly as featured vocalists with the band.
You may find that not many other bands will be as up-front with you about this issue in fear oflosing your booking, but it is important for us to make this clear to all our prospective clientsbecause we believe in building a business with integrity. All function bands of our standard are onthe same playing field with this, so if somebody else is saying they can guarantee you otherwise,we would warn you to be cautious about their quality.
We can, however, guarantee that The Distractions – a collective of exciting and incredibly talentedmusicians and singers from across the UK – will perform at your event, and you will not bedisappointed!
