If you're looking to book some new entertainment for your golf club, a great tribute act can be a a bit of a no-brainer due to the popularity of the tribute market and the general public's desire to see great tribute entertainment.
There are many, many tribute acts to choose from that can be great fit for many different ages and tastes.
Henderson Management are well placed to answer that all important question we are commonly asked, 'should I hire a tribute act for my golf club?...
'One of the best nights we have had. Thanks very much and we are meeting to book 3 acts with you next week! Keith Purnell, Filton Golf Club
'Hi Karl, Wayne Dilks as George Michale was a pleasure to deal with. The evening was a success and we have received great feedback from guests. We would definitely book him again'. Shane Lovric, Oakridge Golf Club
When booking a tribute act for your golf club, it's very important to put yourself in your customers shows. What would they like to see? What suits your audience? We have seen this on several occasions where personal music tastes can get in the way when you're arranging a tribute night, so always keep your audience in mind when choosing your act(s).
An important thing to consider when booking a tribute act for your golf club is the space available. Full bands will always need more space to setup and perform within. We recommend approximately 1.5 meters square per person (and allow 2 square meters for a drummer). Remember, space is needed in front and to the sides of the band to accommodate their PA system (sound system), speakers and lighting stands. If you find there isn't space available to accommodate a band or group, then a solo tribute act is the way to go!
Minimum band stage size requirements
3 piece band: 3 x 3 meters
4 piece band: 4 meters wide by 3 meters deep
5 and 6 piece band: 5 meters wide by 3 meters deep
7 piece and bigger: 5/6 meters wide by 4 meters deep
Assuming you already have a PPL/PRS license to play recorded music in your club, whether a license is needed for LIVE entertainment will depend on the circumstances. A licence is not required to stage a performance of live music, or the playing of recorded music if:-
In other circumstances (if you're putting on a bigger event/festival for example) a licence may be required. One licence application can cover all types of regulated entertainment, this really differs depending on your event so it's always a good idea to do your research on laws and licensing for your specific situation!
Most acts will perform for 60-90 minutes as a standard. 1 x 60 minute set or 2 x 45 minute sets are our most common performance formats for live bands as well as solo singers, duos etc.
