FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Freefall was originally conceived by an overpaid accountant to provide additional gigs for some great musicians who (being musicians) undervalue their skills and hours spent in rehearsing (4-6 hours a day for a trumpeter is not unusual to keep the tone and dexterity).
We pride ourselves on being an affordable band for live music to be at your event. We steer clear of the £000’s charged on the London Scene, but also need to cover our costs of practise time, rehearsing, travel and gig “set up and wait” time. We ask all our clients to benchmark on the basis of £50 per hour of playing time per musician but we are always flexible based on gig location, duration and travel time.
Example: Freefall quartet for an Hertfordshire based 60th Birthday Party, 2.5 hours playing time, covering 8-11pm. Estimate cost – £500. We do not charge VAT.
We request a small deposit to secure a date for your event. Full terms are available on request.

We have an excellent PA, lighting, and supporting PAT tested equipment; we comply with relevant Health & Safety Guidelines & can provide a pre-event Health & Safety Report for Public Gigs on request for a small administration charge (primarily relevant for Council Arranged Events), We conduct our own Health and Safety Procedures as necessary.
Public Liability Insurance is held.
