July 1, 2017

CARBON COPY ARE A 4 PIECE PROFESSIONAL WEDDING BAND FROM GLASGOW. WE LOVE WHAT WE DO AND TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN ALL ASPECTS OF OUR WORK.
 
 

THESES ARE OUR 10 COMMITMENTS TO YOU!!!


1. CARBON COPY WILL PROVIDE THE HIGHEST QUALITY EQUIPMENT

 

 

We invest heavily in our Equipment and take great pride in our sound.From high end professional instruments and PA, to transport and full lighting rig, we provide everything necessary for perfect evening’s entertainment.

 

All our Equipment has had up to date PAT testing at any given time and we are covered with up to 1 million pounds liability insurance to provide you with maximum peace of mind.

 

PAT testing and Liability insurance certificate can be provided to the venue upon request.

 

All you have to do is book CARBON COPY, tell us the venue and we will do the rest.

 

 

2. CARBON COPY WILL OFFER A PRIVATE VIEWING

 

 

It’s a big decision choosing a band and of course you want to be sure before committing to anything.

 

We understand this and always want to give clients the chance to see us before booking wherever possible.

 

Although we have a busy schedule of pub gigs which are open to the public as well as a number of wedding showcases, sometimes people prefer a private viewing and we are more than happy to provide this.

 

Just contact the boys via, website, email, social media or phone call and we will arrange a personal viewing at one of our rehearsals.

 

This gives customers a one to one experience with the chance to hear specific songs from the set list as well as getting the chance to speak to the lads who will be more than happy to answer any questions.

 

 

3. CARBON COPY WILL COMMUNICATE WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

 

 

We pride ourselves on our communication and don’t ever leave anything to chance.

Whether you are:

  • Making an initial enquiry through our Website enquiry form

  • Arranging wedding/event information through our electronic step by step information form

  • Making initial deposit or final payment securely by bank transfer with reference numbers and receipts

  • Having a chat with us on the big day

  • Giving us feedback after the event via our electronic feedback form

  • Making any general enquiry face to face, via phone call, email, website or social media at any time

We have the best communication in the business and shall keep in touch with you as soon as humanly possible every step of the way

 

 

 

4. CARBON COPY WILL FILL YOUR DANCE FLOOR

 

 

We see it as our job to get people on the dance floor and keep them up all night. We have a few tricks up or sleeves to make sure that this happens at every event where play.

 

At Carbon Copy we don’t believe in hanging bout between songs, we play nonstop.

 

When one song is finished we are onto the next one immediately to make sure there is always something to dance to. Rather than using strict set lists, we find using our experience to judge it on the night works best and have the next song decided before we are finished the one we are on.

 

But it’s not all about the band so we try to get crowd participation as much as possible whether that be a slosh, a Ceilidh or dance off we will do what it takes to get you up and keep you up.

 

 

 

5. CARBON COPY WILL PLAY SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY

 

 

There are loads of top wedding bands out there and many different styles of music. Some perform lots of styles and some very specific even down to tribute acts who only perform songs by one artist.

 

At Carbon Copy we believe variety is the spice of life.

 

Every event will always have a vast range of people varying in age and musical taste.

 

We aim to have something for everybody no matter what their musical taste may be.

 

Whether it’s a golden oldie from the 50’s or 60’s to have a slow dance to, or a brand new bang up to date song of the moment to get the youngsters on their feet, we will have something in our set for everyone.

 

From Rock to Dance, from Funk to Soul, from Country to folk, from Britpop to Power Pop, don’t worry we’ve got it covered…  literally.

 

 

 

6. CARBON COPY WILL PLAY AT ANY VENUE

 

 

Some Acts are soloists whilst others are over 10 piece ensembles with horn sections and backing vocalists.

 

In some cases the sheer logistics may impact what is physically possible. Larger bands will have more equipment and smaller venues may not be able to accommodate certain size outfits.

 

As long as there is a footprint of 5m x 3m for us to set up in the venue, and we have approximately 1 hour to set up we will be ready to play the first note at whatever time you require.

 

We always contact venues beforehand, to arrange everything from arrival and start times to load in and sound restrictions.

 

We always know the set up arrangements in the venue before setting off.

 

From pubs & village halls to large country estates, theatres, halls, hotel function rooms. We will also perform in marquees or outdoors, under cover, if the weather allows it.

 

For CARBON COPY, location is no hurdle, distance is no object, borders are no barriers.

 

If you book us we will come!!!

 

 

 

7. CARBON COPY WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO TELL YOUR FRIENDS

 

At Carbon Copy we live on word of mouth and recommendations from our clients.

 

Its hard choosing a wedding band the reality is this will for most people be the first and possibly only time in their life they will book some live music. Lets face it most of us are not experienced band booking agents.

 

Although the internet is fantastic for easy access to a large variety of bands and acts it can also be a daunting place as there so much to choose from.

 

Sometimes the best advice comes from the people who you trust most and a recommendation from a close friend or family member is worth its weight in gold.

 

It means the world to us when we get a booking from a recommendation because its means that someone who has seen us has went out of their way to tell people about us and that is really special indeed.

 

 

 

 

8. CARBON COPY ARE VALUE FOR MONEY

 

 

Weddings are an expensive business but it doesn’t mean prices should be over the odds. It should be remembered as the best day of your life, not the most expensive.

 

There are many different acts out there offering very different services and a number of factors could impact on cost. Anything from the experience of the performers to how in demand they are could affect their fee.

 

The number of people in a group may also impact the price with the larger acts naturally taking a bigger fee whereas duets and 3 pieces can provide a reduced rate.

 

However it is true that you do get what you pay for.

 

We take pride in the fact that our pricing is very competitive which we regularly check against our competitors.

 

Our price varies slightly depending on location only to ensure that travel costs are covered.

 

Contact us via, our website, social media or give us a call to get a quote. You might be pleasantly surprised.

 

 

 

9. CARBON COPY WILL MAKE YOUR NIGHT A SUCCESS

 

We want every aspect of the evening to be a success. We want every performance to be better than our last.

 

We love learning songs that what we do best and if you have a specific first dance we will learn it. If it’s something that cannot physically be done or even if you prefer we will play the original version through our sound system.

 

If you have a family member of guest who wants to sing or play a song we will wherever possible make it happen as long as we know in advance.

 

If you need any announcements made on the night we will announce them for you.

 

If you have any surprises for someone that you want to kept till the big day let us know before hand and our lips will be sealed until the time is right.

 

We are happy if you are happy and whatever it takes, wherever humanly possible we will make it happen.

 

 

 

10. CARBON COPY WILL ALWAYS DELIVER

 

 

We are professionals and don’t leave anything to chance.

 

We prepare, plan check, double check and treble check to make sure nothing can ever go wrong.

 

If an instrument, microphone, cable, speaker, stand doesn’t work on the night we have spares.

 

Our transport is maintained to the highest level and have alternative transport if required.

 

In the extremely unlikely event that any unforeseen circumstances such as any illness or injury occur on the day of your event we have several replacement musicians who we have worked with many times who can step in as a replacement.
