What We'll Do At Your Wedding


Arrival, set up and soundcheck

We’ll arrive well in time to set up for your event. Hit The Road will set up as quickly and unobtrusively as we can. We will need a quick soundcheck to ensure a great sound for your event. This will be at full volume, if your guests are in the same room this will be noticeable but most guests find this entertaining. If you’d rather we set up before your guests arrive talk to us about early set up options.


After set up & soundcheck

After set up Hit The Road will play music through the PA system, we normally start off with a more mellow playlist ready to transition into your first set. We can also make any key announcements e.g cake cutting or first dances.


1st Dance, 1st Live set & break

We’ll do our best to perform your first dance. With enough notice we can perform most songs. If you’d prefer to have the original recording played we can arrange for that too.

We’ll announce the cake cutting, then introduce you onto the dancefloor and encourage all of your guests to gather round. If required we’ll then encourage the rests of your guests to join you on the dancefloor.

We normally start our first set straight after the first dance . Hit The Road normally play 2 x 1 hour sets, but we can split this into 3 x 40 minute sets if you’d prefer. We cater the set timings around your event and we’ll always try and avoid playing while food is being served (unless you’ve booked musicians to play during your meal). We can play an acoustic vintage soul first set to warm up the guests if you’d prefer.


2nd live set & end of the night

At Your Wedding – 2nd live set & end of the night If your event includes evening food we’ll start our second set once people have finished eating. We’ll play a lively energetic set to keep your guests dancing all night long.

Once we’ve finished playing we’ll play music through the PA system whilst we discretely pack away our instruments. If you’ve booked our DJ option we’ll play upbeat music and encourage your guests to remain on the dancefloor.

 

See our weddings and corporate pages for details on what our service we offer for those specific events.
