How much space do you need?
For solo piano: 2m x 1m For duo: 2.5 x 1m For 5-piece jazz band: 4m x 3m approx.
Impromptu are very good at slipping into tight or unusual spaces!
Where will you travel to?
50 countries so far... (please see map below) but obviously we may have to add expenses for venues beyond the UK's South East.
How much do you cost?
Prices start from £350 depending on where the event is, how long you want music for and how many musicians you require.
How long do you play for?
Impromptu usually play for up to two-and-a-half hours including one or two breaks. However if you book more than one act this can stretch to longer.
Can we only book more than one act?
Impromptu frequently provide all the music for an event - Solo piano for wedding ceremonies, duo for dinner jazz and jazz band for something livelier later on. It is easier and cheaper for you to have all your musicians in place in one go! We will discount the individual prices and give you one price, one contract.
What else do you provide?
Impromptu will play background CDs during breaks if you want (or if you prefer your own CDs we'll play those for you). We can also provide:
Harpist, String Quartet or Disco
Again, one price, one point of contact, one contract for everything.
The ideal is always to have a good grand piano at your venue, recently tuned. Failing that, Impromptu will bring an electric piano (please let us know).
What else do we need to provide?
Impromptu require a safe, 240 volt power point close to where they will be playing. Soft drinks and sandwiches are much appreciated as well, or better still a hot veggie meal. If it's to play outside, please provide shade/cover e.g. a gazebo to combat rain/sun.
Can you play our special song for our 1st Dance?
YES! If we don’t know it, we'll learn it. Please give us at least a month's notice.
Where can we hear you play?
Please listen to the clips on the music page, and/or please see the the gig-dates page for details of public gigs. Even if you can't see the actual line up you require you can meet Neal & Sue and have a chat with them.
How do we book you?
Please contact Impromptu either by email or phone. When you're happy with the details Impromptu will send you a contract (based on the Musicians Union's standard contract) so you know it's all booked and insured.
How/when do we pay?
Please send a 10% deposit with the contract. Please pay by cheque (payable to
Impromptu) or cash on or before your event. If you would rather pay by BACS please contact Impromptu for the details.
Are you insured?
Yes, we are covered for public liability by the Musicians Union. A copy is available on request. All our gear is PAT tested.
