About The Band

Fragile Sanity?? That’s not a wedding band name!?  Nope you’re absolutely right.  While they originally started out as a rock band, they found their new path later on, performing at weddings and parties.  Except by this time, they were widely known as Fragile Sanity.  So, they kept it.

Having a wedding in the South West? Fragile Sanity make up what is probably the best and most qualified function band in Cornwall.

The band consists of ex-touring musicians, who have performed alongside such icons as Gary Moore from Thin Lizzy and Al Hodge from Leo Sayer.  They are passing on their craft as music teachers.  They are regularly booked by companies such as the Walkabout Chain and Haven holidays and are favoured by many wedding venues as recommended suppliers around Cornwall and Devon.  Their repertoire, spanning all the way back to the 50s, right up to present day means that there is something for all tastes and all ages.  All members sing, providing rich vocal harmonies to the more complicated tracks not many other bands would wish to attempt, such as The Beach Boys and Queen.  With an investment of approximately £20k of equipment, sound, lighting and visual quality is nothing short of professional.

FAQ

What times can you arrive, set up, and start?

For an evening performance we generally arrive at a venue between 6pm and 6.30pm.  It takes about an hour to an hour half to unload, setup and soundcheck (depending on venue access). We’re normally ready to go by 8pm where we’d run gentle background music until when you want us to start performing.  We can setup anytime during the day, earlier setups may affect the overall price.

How far are you prepared to travel?

Wherever you want us, we mainly cover the southwest but even if you have a wedding in Scotland, give us a shout!

Can you perform our first dance?

Absolutely and would recommend doing so.  Learning a first dance is included in a quoted price as well as learning 2 other songs not currently featured in the repertoire if required.

How much do you charge?

Price is largely based on location of your event and personal requirements.  In order for us to give you an accurate quote we’d need to know where you are going to be.

What is included in the price?

Learning your first dance, full lighting, PA system, dedicated sound engineer, recorded music in between sets… and us 🙂

Can you fit in a small space?

Ideally, a minimum stage area of 4 metres wide by 3 metres deep is required.  If it needs to be any smaller, please let us know.

Ok, sounds great, how do I get in touch?

We know its a busy and stressful time organising your special event.  So here are a few pointers for making your night a success.

 

  • BOOK THE SMALLEST VENUE YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH
    Sounds silly but to book a venue capable of holding 500 people and having a guest list of 75 lacks atmosphere and looks empty.
  • MAKE SURE THE BAR IS IN THE SAME ROOM
    This will keep everyone together.
  • LET US PERFORM YOUR FIRST DANCE
    Little point but it does add synergy to the performance for when we start our main set.
  • LET US DO YOUR DJ SETS
    An extra DJ will add significant cost to your entertainment budget and take up extra room with their equipment. Plus, we’ll do it INCLUSIVE OF THE PRICE!
  • (From our guitarist) BOOK A CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN
    “I really like chocolate fountains”
