About A&C Music

A&C Music's profile picture
Acoustic duo
Altrincham
A&C Music are an acoustic duo who specialize in live music entertainment for a variety of events and parties.

A & C Music are a Manchester-based acoustic duo act specialising in performing at weddings, parties, corporate functions and festivals. The band use Acoustic guitars and add percussion by using either guitar loops or a Cajon which help the band achieve a full sound rivalling that of a full 4/5 piece band. This versatility makes the band perfect for laid back affairs like wedding receptions as well as parties which require plenty of energy. The Duo have an extensive repertoire of popular covers (some less predictable than others) but nonetheless guaranteed to get everyone at the function singing and dancing. However, the band are more than willing to take requests.The band can also provide their own PA system as well as providing a Laptop DJ service. The members have impressive credentials. Andy has a BA (Hons) in Music and a Masters degree in audio production. He has also played guitar on BBC Introducing Leeds for Chloebeth Hamer, as well as being featured on local radio stations with bands. Charlie teaches groups of people of all ages how to play multiple instruments as well as how to play in a band. Both members have a history of playing shows across the country and being featured on radio stations.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up is as follows, vocals, guitar and percussion. We also have options to include drums, keyboard/piano and bass.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes - we either perform acoustically or with cables attached to our instruments so we can move around freely.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Only the PA is included in our pricing, if you want us to add a lighting show into the performance let us know and we will adjust the quote accordingly.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our clients seem to love our choice in set list as we like to put our own flavour on each song we play. Our song choices aren't generic and are a breath of fresh air to our clients. Our performances get everyone singing along and dancing.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed at various venues predominantly in the north west. These include: - Riva, Hale - Madam Genevas, Wigan - Kersal Rugby Club, Timperley - Tavern on the Green, Altrincham - Wellington Road High School, Timperley - Club Academy, Manchester - Altrincham Market Some of these venues, we have played multiple times.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

- The 1975 - Oasis - Coldplay - OneRepublic - The Fray - James - The Kooks - Ed Sheeran - The Smiths - Aha - Muse - The Cure - Sum 41 - Blink 182 - Arctic Monkeys - Queen

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Our highest profile gig is a tough one to choose as they have all been high profile in various ways. We would argue that our gig at Altrincham Market was our highest profile, as it was in the town centre and had hundreds of people watching.
