The Veltones - FAQ
How much do you charge?
That depends on a few factors. Mainly distance to travel, setup times and set times. When you give us some information on your event we can give you an accurate quote.
Travel distances permitting, we will visit the venue well in advance to meet with client and venue representative to agree all details - to ensure a smooth running event on the night.
We require two hours access before the event to set up and sound check - this involves making a noise.
We usually play two live sets totaling up to 2 hours.
