What is a Roaming Band?
A Roaming band is also known as strolling band or wandering musicians and they have become a popular choice for outdoor gatherings and weddings. They are an acoustic band that wanders and mingles amongst the guests and get everyone joining in singing and dancing. They perform unamplified which means no long set up times they can turn up and start to perform straight away. This makes them perfect for those tipi style weddings while the guests are outside having drinks they can be entertained before the evening events. Also a small roaming band would be perfect for a garden party or a big corporate event whether outside or inside a large arena wandering and mixing amongst the crowds.
All bands perform for 2 x 45 minutes with a break in between, but 2 x 60 minutes is not unusual either. Timings can be adjusted to suit your event.
