Frequently Asked Questions for Private Parties/ Wedding/ Private Events bookings:

How much space do you need?: We need approx 2 metres by 2.5 metres space to set up in, but if it’s a small intimate gathering 2 x 2m would work.

How much set up time? We often arrive aobut an hour to an hour and a half before guests and then set up. It takes us between 45 mins to an hour to pack away

How long do you usually play for? We usually do either two sets of 45 minutes, with a shortish break in between, or sometimes (eg. festivals) we get asked to play one set of between an hour and an hour and 20 mins

What about payment? Please get in touch to discuss as our fee varies depending on different factors

What else do you need? Parking space for our large high top van (3.1m high, 5.8m long) nearish to where we’ll be unloading. We need to make sure that the venue is accessible too! Any narrow lanes or trees with low branches might be difficult for us.

Do I need to choose a Playlist for our party/ wedding from your repertoire? We have a large repertoire, and we are VERY expereinced at ‘reading the room’ and seeing what’s going down well! Which means we can respond to the vibe! That’s the beauty of live musicians rther than pre-recorded music. So, no, you don’t have to get a playlist together at all! But do feel free to let us know your favourites from our list of songs thqt we do play.

Are you good at getting people dancing? You bet we are!! (See some of the videos on our Gallery page or YouTube,com/@mambojamboduo here
