Frequently Asked Questions


I am looking for a Musician or Live Band - can you help?

Yes we can! But please don't contact UK-Bands direct if you're trying to book a Musician or Live Band, as we are simply an online directory of Live Band Hire, Wedding Bands and Wedding Entertainment Services. Using the map of the UK at the top of the right-hand column on this page, select your region to find Live Music / Bands and Wedding Entertainment Services in your area. You can narrow down your search by also selecting your county.

Once you've located a company / individual you'd like to contact, use our custom contact form to send your enquiry. The form will remember the details you enter and you can contact up to six companies with your request.

I booked a Musician or Live Band through your site but they failed to turn-up.

UK-Bands takes these sorts of complaints very seriously. We never knowingly accept adverts from companies / individuals who do not honor bookings and we have no desire to retain such adverts. Please let us know the full details and we will endeavour to assist in any way possible. If you originally used our enquiry form to contact the company, we will have a transcript on file which can be used as evidence in any compensation claim you wish to pursue with the advertiser (direct).

Can I register multiple free accounts in different towns to get more exposure in the directory?

Sorry, this is not allowed. UK-Bands is very strict at enforcing this. All advertisers are limited to just 1 free listing, no exceptions. Duplicate free listings are always deleted and repeat offenders are removed from the site altogether. If you find the directory of benefit, please support it by upgrading your listing to a paid advert.

My personal details have changed, how do I get it amended on the site?

For security reasons, we are unable to make changes to accounts from e-mail / telephone requests. Please log-in to your administration account using your registered e-mail address and chosen password. Select the 'Update Business' option in the left-hand column of your admin page to amend any of your personal details.

If you can't remember your chosen password, use the password retrieval option to receive a reminder.

I'm having problems activating my account the activation link doesn't seem to work.

E-mail programs can sometimes 'break' the activation link by splitting the special address over multiple lines. Other mail programs (AOL users in particular) may also prevent the link from being clicked on.

To activate your account, you need to carefully copy and paste the FULL address into a browser address bar. If the activation link is split over 2 or more lines, make sure your copy and paste each section. There should be no spaces within the activation link.

If you continue to have problems, please forward your activation e-mail to us and we'll manually activate your account.

I'm unable to log-in to my account.

Please work through the following checklist to resolve your issue:

  • Have you activated your account? New accounts must be activated before you can log-in. Follow the instructions given in your activation e-mail.
  • Your web browser MUST be able to accept cookies for you to log-in. Check that any Internet security software, firewalls and browser settings allow cookies through.
  • Are you trying to log-in using the correct e-mail address? Use our password retrieval option to check.
  • If the password retrieval facility accepts your e-mail address, check you're using the correct password.

If you're still having difficulty, please contact us.

I wish to upgrade my account. What membership options are available?

There are five listing options available on the site. Here's a summary:

Basic free listing

A basic listing is free-of-charge and includes a full company profile and banner advert on your profile page.

Bronze Membership

Bronze membership is also free of charge, but subject to a reciprocal link-back to us from your site.

Your profile page will include a direct hyperlink to your web site.

Bronze listings are regularly reviewed to ensure our link on your site is maintained. If our link is removed from your site, your listing will be automatically downgraded.

Silver Membership

Silver membership offers low cost advertising with increased visibility over free listings and no requirement to supply a reciprocal link.

You will receive an enhanced box advert on your relevant region page.

Note: The directory is currently restricted to region searches only. As more advertisers sign-up, visitors will be able to search by County. At this point, your enhanced box advert will move to your relevant County page.

You receive a direct link to your web site.

Silver membership costs just 12.00 / year (incl. VAT).

Gold

Gold membership offers increased exposure with the prominent display of banners and information boxes.

Your details will be displayed in a high visibility box and will appear above all 'Silver' and 'Bronze' listings.

Your graphic banner will be included in the left-hand column on all county pages within your region.

This is the recommended option for optimum exposure in your region.

Gold membership costs just 36.00 / year (incl. VAT).

Platinum

Platinum membership offers maximum exposure throughout the whole site.

Your information box and graphic banner will receive top placement on all pages, regardless of geographical location.

Your graphic banner also appears on the UK-Bands home page.

This membership option is only recommended for businesses who offer FULL UK coverage.

NOTE: Platinum slots are strictly limited and are made available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Platinum membership costs 96.00 / year (incl. VAT).

You have sold out of Gold / Platinum adverts, can you let me know when one becomes available?

Unfortunately, we are unable to maintain a waiting list. Adverts are sold on a 'first-come, first-served' basis. Once the allocation is sold, slots will only be made available when another advertiser chooses not (or forgets) to renew their listing.

Advertisers are therefore encouraged to upgrade while slots are available.

If all premium slots are sold, you still have the opportunity to get your site listed at the top of our pages through the Google Adwords system. If you don't already have an Adwords account, you can sign-up via the link below.
