How to book
Fill out our quick, easy online form. We will then check our dates, and send you a rough quote. Ask us any questions; we want to get a feel for the kind of event you are planning. From there, we can provide you with more detailed information tailored to your specific event and needs, and will send you out an information booklet with free demo CD.
The Royal Dukes Band host regular 'showcases' where, over on hour or two, we try to give you as accurate an idea of what an event with us is like. We will showcase all our band sizes and styles so you can decide what suits you.
Invite everyone along and join us for a fun night! Sit down and talk to us one-on-one and meet the band - Live gigs dates are listed here.

Working With Us
4 PlanningBy the time you have solidified everything from your venue, catering, decor and logistics etc. the planning stage might take months - we'll help you as much as you'd like to work the music into the bigger picture. Or simply tell us the general vibe you're looking for, and we'll figure it all for you.
5 ConfirmationAfter you are satisfied with your final plan, we'll formally run through your times and plan for the event, resolve any potential issues, and polish it all until we're all sure that it’s perfect. This usually happens around a week before the event, but sometimes earlier if you are super-organized.
The main event!With everything organized, there is nothing more to do at your event than kick back and have an incredible night, with an amazing band. We pride ourselves on this part especially - its all about great preparation and a genuine love for what we do.
