General booking information

Equipment and safety

FireWire has a professional attitude to performance. We have public liability insurance to £10 million, and all mains electrical equipment is PAT tested and safety compliant. Relevant certification is available for inspection if required.

Our PA is a 2.4kW HK Audio system capable of providing full, rich sound from small venues to large events catering for up to 1,500 people. We have a comprehensive lighting rig, including laser and smoke effects for use in venues where these are permitted.

Set lengths and rates

We are reliable and punctual. Typically we play two 60-minute sets with one break, or three 40-minute sets with two breaks. For functions, we will arrange timings to meet your requirements and we can provide suitable background and dance music mixes from our own extensive library or from your own CDs. With FireWire there’s no need for an additional DJ.

Our rates vary according to event type and size, and we aim to be very competitive. Factors that can affect the fee are the nature and size of the event, travel times and the amount of time you require the band to play. Please contact us for a quote.

Venue requirements

The use of a dressing room is appreciated. For playing and to accommodate our equipment, we require a minimum area of approximately 5m x 3m and a minimum of three 13A sockets (six when using our full lighting rig). Much of our equipment is heavy and it is appreciated if we can park, load and unload as close as possible to where we are playing; please let us know if there are any access or parking issues at the venue.

For public performances we provide advance publicity posters for the venue, and we advise clients to advertise forthcoming gigs.

All engagements are subject our full Terms and Conditions, a copy of which can be downloaded here. For functions we usually require a deposit.
