Thinking of booking us? Here’s some useful information that might help you decide if we’re the band for you!!
Types of Event
Guggenmusik is unusual in this country but our musical style seems to generate enormous enthusiasm & thoroughly entertain audiences who attend a whole range of music festivals.
Our music is popular and varied as you can see on our YouTube clips.
Gugge 2000 are the perfect band for a street entertainment event. We are not, however, a marching band in the conventional sense! We can ‘amble’ slowly and provide great visual entertainment prior to a carnival procession to keep the crowds entertained while they wait in the rain or sunshine! We just couldn’t get the hang of marching in time!!
It’s probably not ideal to have us in a long parade, (we are not fit enough!), but seriously we may hold up proceedings & frustrate those in the parade behind us & organisers who have schedules to keep as we stop and start to entertain the crowds.
However, we do provide ideal pre and post procession entertainment when located at the key audience spots along the route.
We love busking! Town centres works best for us. Instant crowds and fun. Gugge 2000 thrive where we can get close up to our audience rather than be on a stage and detached.
Bizarrely, we do get booked for weddings (yes really!), birthdays, corporate and occasional charity events.
Please be aware we are quite, no let’s be honest, VERY loud therefore unless a very large indoor venue then outside events are best. Acoustics are always best in built up areas rather than open fields where the sound (yes even ours!) can get lost and not have the same impact.
We are based in Ringwood and will travel to your event. If we have to travel a significant distance, we may ask you to pay for our transport by coach.
Our availability is always dependant on member availability and travel logistics but we will always try our best!
The Money Bit!
You will be surprised how reasonable our fees are for a 30+ band!
We are a self-financing band and all members are unpaid volunteers because we just love entertaining!
Gig fees depend on the day, time & number of performances involved.
We will always try and accommodate any special requests for those special events.
We do undertake some charity events during the year so please just get in touch to have a chat with us.
Please complete the enquiry form and our gig secretary will be in touch in a jiffy!
