About the project
Who we are
My name is Rhona, I’m the Managing Director of The Supreme Collective.
The Supreme Collective are a captivating wedding and party band based in London and able to travel throughout the United Kingdom as well as internationally. We often frequent Surrey, Essex, Hampshire, Kent, and the surrounding areas too. The band is available for hire for a variety of functions including weddings, birthday parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, award ceremonies and corporate events.
The Supreme Collective are event specialists providing live music entertainment for your function, and event planning to ensure the venue has the right lighting, staging, decoration and atmosphere.
Being one of the best bands in the United Kingdom The Supreme Collective are masters of their craft, and are known as London’s most captivating band specializing in live music for wedding ceremonies, dinners, first dances, and evening receptions. The band is incredibly versatile performing breath-taking renditions of the great pop, funk, soul, folk, rock and jazzy classics from the 60s through to the current top 40s.
As a collective we have four styles of bands. Our main act is a 2-10 piece pop, funk and soul band, The Supreme Collective, We also have a 5 piece Mumford & Sons inspired modern folk band, banjo and all, aptly named Indie-Folk, For something a little more sophisticated, Velvet Diamond, is our jazz inspired takes on well known pop songs. And finally for those of you looking for a little background entertainment we can do a variety of styles of instrumental jazz music with as big of a band as you desire.
What your idea is
We would like to film new promotional footage at Under The Bridge, one of London’s finest live music venues. Under The Bridge is a great venue for filming because it has an LED backdrop, state of the art stage lighting, excellent mixing and mastering equipment, and a beautiful big stage. With hair, make up, dance routines, we hope to capture the exhiliating shows that each of our bands create.
What the money’s for
To hire the venue exclusively it costs £2,900 + VAT, and will include an event manager, 3 event technicians (2 x sound & 1 x lighting), sound & lighting production, bar staff, security, a cloakroom attendant, and a 32 Channel sound rerecording and live mix with backup system and recording engineer.
The company for filming is called Knickerbockerglory and have produced promotional footage at the high standard that we want to achieve. They would charge £4,036 + VAT for 1 day shooting and 5 days of editing, including shooting production, 4 camera operators / assistants, kit hire (4 x C300 kit including lighting), edit suite hire, travel, hire of van, meals for crew, and insurance.
Further costs include hair (£150 + VAT), makeup (£150 + VAT), and photography (£60 + VAT).
