As the first port of call when you contact Arkadia i am very often asked how much we charge
to travel .The answer is we dont. I have researched this in the wedding market and have discovered that this seems to be a common practice, I even came accross one band who quoted me €300 euro to travel to killarney from cork. I can only assume that alot of these bands are not set up for travelling but in my opinion this should not be passed on to the wedding couple. Arkadia are proud to be a Co. Cork based band but we work all over Ireland and we dont and will not load on extra costs for travelling. Also whatever part of the country we are in we will be at your venue at two o clock in the afternoon to set up and conduct sound and lighting checks prior to your guests arrival. We are 100% commited to giving you maximum value for money both on and off stage. In relation to performance and feedback just click on testimonials and guest book to see what the most important people have to say. Stay tuned for some big news coming soon.
