Booking Your Entertainment
I’m interested in booking entertainment. How do I get started?
Congratulations on your upcoming celebration and being ready to book your entertainment! There are several ways to get started:
How far in advance should I book a band/DJ/Other Entertainment?
Quality entertainment options are often booked out for up to 16 months.
For Weddings, the most popular months are June through October, with the two middle Saturdays being prime slots. Other private functions, such as Family Reunions, etc., are also heavily scheduled in the same months. The Holidays are often a very busy time as well for corporate, civic and non-profit celebratory events.
Your best bet, try to book your entertainment 8-12 months in advance if you would like to ensure that the entertainment option of your choice is available.

Prepping for Your Event
How long should I have the band play for?
Through our years of experience, we have determined two performance options that work best with most events:
- 1 hour and 40 minute set with a 20 minute break and a 2 hour party set
- One hour of music digitally followed by a 3 hour set
However, we know each event is different and unique and we realize this timeline may not work at all events. We will work with you and your schedule and make recommendations to fit your needs.
How do I choose what music will be played by the band?
On our KLF Pro Entertainment Event Questionnaire (or on our KLF Pro Entertainment Wedding Questionnaire), you will be asked to provide your musical preferences and/or top favorite songs from the band’s song list. Our band takes your event vision and musical preferences into account when creating their playlist. Our bands are experts at choosing the right songs at the right time in the night, so don’t worry about putting together a full playlist! Your vision and preferences will give them all the direction they need to “Create Unforgettable Magical Moments” at your event!
In addition, any KLF Exclusive band will learn any ONE song not on their song list at no additional cost to you. (Requests must be submitted 30 days in advance.)
How much power does the band need?
Ideally, four 20AMP power sources are needed within 25 feet of the performance area/stage.
Do I need a stage for my event?
For ultimate entertainment enjoy-ability, we recommend you have staging. Sometimes this is supplied through the event venue, but we can include a stage in the price of the band upon request. If there is no stage, there needs to be at least a hard, dry, level, flat surface for the performers to perform on.
Should I tip the band/entertainment?
Nothing says a job well done quite like a nice tip! Gratuity is not included in your purchase price. Tips or gratuities to KLF performers is 100% optional and at the purchaser’s discretion. Gratuity payments can be made at the end of your event to the main performer contact/band leader, or you can send a request for a gratuity invoice to our office manager after the event. If our performer(s) “Created Unforgettable Magical Moments” for you, the suggested gratuity amount is $50-100 per performer.
Does the band carry insurance?
KLF warrants and represents that it has contract and liability insurance coverage in the amount of $1,000,000.00.
