Q: How much does it cost to hire Theme Machine?

A: There is no set amount to hire the band as this is based on a number of factors such as where the venue is, how big you want the band to be, the day of the week and what equipment is needed. If you are interested in hiring the band please get in touch with as much information as possible so that we can provide you with an exact quote.

Q: How many players are there in Theme Machine?

A: Again this all depends entirely upon the circumstances of the performance and the budget available. The basic band is made up of 13 people which comprises of full rhythm section, 6 brass and 2 singers. However if you really want to put on a great show then we are able to offer you a much bigger set up which can include more vocalists, strings and dancers. If budget allows we an provide a whole orchestra if that is what is required!

Q: Does Theme Machine play strictly just Music from Film & TV?

A: No. Although the premise behind the band is playing all your well loved classic themes from the world of film and television, we know that some of them aren't really big dance floor fillers. This is why we also have a party set which includes lots of classic covers by artists such as Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Whitney Houston and even The Spice Girls! We also have a great selection of swing and big band music to really show off our fab horn section. This means that the band is able to cater the set list to your specific needs and requirements.

Q: Does Theme Machine use backing tracks?

A: Absolutely not! With only the finest musicians being utilised, Theme Machine has no need to use assistance from backing tracks. Everything you hear is 100% live. The only thing pre-recorded is our special selection of voice-over clips to add that extra special wow factor!

Q: Do we need to hire a DJ?

A: No. Theme Machine can easily provide you with recorded music to be played in between sets. However, we are often hired in conjunction with an independent DJ so we are quite happy to fit in with whatever suits you best.

Q: How much space does the band need to play?

A: The ideal space for the band would be a raised stage area measuring 16 deep by 24 across. However the band has been known to fit into slightly smaller spaces when required to.

Q: How far will the band travel for an event?

A: The band is based in London but there are no real limits as to how far we can travel within the UK and worldwide as long as the budget allows.

Q: Does the band have appropriate insurance cover?

A: The band is fully insured as set out by the Musicians Union & government guidelines and covered for public and 3rd party liability.
