How It Works

To make a booking, select the date and tell us what style of entertainment you would like and when you are planning on staging this event. We will work together with you to create a live entertainment you and your customers will love.

Hats Off Entertainment & Promotions’ shows will usually be 2-3 hours in duration and prices are subject to change (excluding PA hire) during high and low seasons and level of acts.

You can choose from:

  • SOLO ACTS
  • DUO ACTS
  • TRIO ACTS
  • SHOW BANDS
  • 4 PIECE BANDS
  • STAND UP COMEDIANS
  • DANCERS

If your venue does not have sound:

  • We can provide a sound system for one-off hire fee which includes transportation within a 5 kilometer radius of the point of origin of the PA storage
  • Bigger functions such as weddings, private functions and shows will require bigger and higher quality systems, and as such will require a much higher fee for the production
  • More than 5 km distance is an additional fee per kilometre
  • See Equipment Hire for further details

Duration of show:

  • Our quotations are based on 2 or 3 hour shows
  • Each act will perform an average of 2 or 3 sets (45-50 minutes duration each set) with breaks (10-15 minutes duration)
  • Concert festival performance times are determined by the duration of the festival and number of acts
