From Previous threads that I have seen on here, you can spend as much as you like. I am spending 2300 on mine. Its a five piece. They range in price as they go from a 3 piece to a six piece. I picked mine cos they got our toes tapping right from the start.

Ours was 1400/1500 and our DJ was 425 on top. These are last years prices.

We had originally booked The Texas Wildcats, they were costing E2550 without dj for max of 3 hours or E2850 for the band to play for 3 hours plus dj for 2 hours. We cancelled them after encountering a few problems and have now booked a band from our locality which we are much happier with and they are only costing E1900 including band and dj.
