MANY KIND REGARDS
WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU
ROBYN & JAMES O'DONOVAN - INKASOUNDS
BOOKING CONDITIONS & VARIATIONS
Note: Travel time and overnight accommodation may be factored into bookings requiring extensive travel and functions scheduled on a Public Holiday may incur a small surcharge. Such bookings will be quoted on a case by case basis once all relevant information regarding your special day i.e. wedding date, venue location, number of services required and start and end times have been provided.
Band Meals & Drink Requirements
As iNkaSounds' day begins some 2 or more hours before your first guests arrive and continues long after they have said their fond goodbyes, as part of our booking agreement and as per guests: all performing members of iNkaSounds are to be supplied with the ‘Full Meals & Drinks’ package and (if space available) a table to sit at within the reception room itself.
From experience, we have found that this arrangement traditionally works best: as it ensures that band members will have enough to eat and drink over the 8 or more hours they will be at your function venue, a table to sit at within the room (pending space available) where they can keep a close eye and ear on the music and what’s going on at all times, and most importantly aids in the smooth timing and running of your formalities and music sets.
Please understand that we fully appreciate the cost difference between a ‘Full Meals & Drinks’ package and the ‘Supplier’s/Band Meal’ often offered by venues, and as such this additional expense to our couples/clients has already been taken into account when determining our base line music and entertainment service rates. And it is why iNkaSounds chooses to charge considerably less for their award winning music and entertainment services than many other bands of their calibre to compensate.
Accommodation & Travel
If applicable, accommodation and travel fees will be included in our initial quote and booked and managed by the INKASOUNDS team.
The team at iNkaSounds understand that planning a wedding is a complicated and time consuming process and so are always happy to place a tentative hold on dates for couples or clients needing a little more time to finalise their venue details or who are booked in to attend one of our showcase evenings or public gigs.
However, please note, that unlike some less experienced or professional bands, iNkaSounds is fully committed to giving a top performance at all their weddings and private functions and thus avoid overbooking. Your wedding or special function is an important event and you deserve us at our best. Therefore, we always recommend securing your booking as early as possible, as bookings on either side of your proposed date may also deem us unavailable, especially if the other wedding or function requires extensive travel.
Deposit & Final Payment Requirements
A 30% deposit is required to secure your booking, with balance due 2 weeks prior to your big day. Deposits are non-refundable in the event of services no longer being required by the client less than 16 weeks prior to their contracted wedding or function date.
