Are you insured ?
Yes, we have a full Public Liability Insurance and all our equipment is PAT (Portable Appliance Test) tested. Copy of certificates can be provided upon request. Most hotels and venues now demand proof of the certificates so you can be assured that we will always keep the certificates up to date.

The Vintage Corporation use a state-
What geographical are do you cover ?

Do you provide music when you are not performing ?

Do you provide a DJ when you are not playing ?
Not as a general rule but we have a DJ available who has played with us many times. The cost of a DJ is £250.00
How long do you play for ?
Our standard performance for the Tina turner Tribute show is 2 hours.
The timing of the performance depends on the venue.
Do you use backing tapes or mini discs ?
No we don’t. All vocals and instruments are completely LIVE.
How do I know that you are a professional band that sounds good?
Not a lot of bands can say that they have 250 years of musical experience between them ! All our musicians are passionate perfectionists.
How long in advance do you need the venue for setting up your gear ?
As we have a lot of equipment to set up and we need to carry out all the necessary sound-
In case all our equipment needs to be carried up stairs or carried a long way, we will need to start setting up even earlier. Please let us know in advance if this is the case.
How long do you charge to play an extra hour after the agreed timing ?

Do we need to provide anything for the band ?
No you don’t, we are a self contained band and have our own PA system and lights. All we need is a space somewhere in the venue where our sound-
What size stage do you need ?
9 musicians, all with their own speakers, fold backs, equipment, etc.... we will need a reasonably large stage. Ideally the stage area should be 12 metre x 8 metre but we can squash all the gear on a smaller stage. Absolute minimum stage size is 8 metre x 4 metre.
Do you need a changing room ?
As we do change clothes during our performances, we will definitely need an large area preferably close to the stage to get changed. Please note toilets are not suitable changing facilities. The changing room need to be lockable and we do need a key for the room as all our changing clothes and the band members’ personal belongings will be left in that room whilst performing.
Do you need us to provide food and drink for the band members ?
You don’t have to but it would be nice. We are not at all demanding, if you do decide to feed us, a few sandwiches and some hoft drinks will be fine.
Do you perform in venues with a noise limiter fitted ?
No we can’t perform in a venue with a noise limiter.
Can you perform at an outdoor event or a marquee ?
Yes we do but only if the area where we play is very well covered (top and sides) and protected from heavy wind and rain. We would not want all our professional equipment to get wet. So if the performing area is not covered we will not be able to perform outdoors.
Please note that adequate mains power should be available close to the performing area.
Technical requirements for performing in a marquee :
It is very important that the marquee or the outside performance area is safe and dry at all times to perform in. We reserve the right to stop performing at any time should we feel that the area is unsafe for the band members or the equipment (for instance leaks or low temperatures in the marquee)
