Customer questions

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

We’re happy to accommodate timing changes & be flexible as we understand weddings can be fluid in their timescales sometimes! Don’t worry if you need to adjust times, just keep us posted.

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

Of course; we’re happy to play your favourite tunes from iPod, just send us a list in advance.

How much time do you need to set up?

An hour.

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes; as long as it’s been recently tuned.

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

Yes.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes, we normally do.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We’re happy to learn a first dance and a second song request if it’s not on our list. Any extra new requests are £50 each as we have to spend extra time rehearsing them.

Would justlike to say a big thank you to"The Rumour Mill" band for my 60th. A big thank you to the The Rumour Mill band who provided some absolutely brilliant live music.. They were absolutely first class and had the dance floor bouncing. Everybody from the 100 plus people at the party commented on how great they were. They had both old and young dancing the night away to their rich 70s and 80s music. A great sound from this 5 piece band with a fantastic lead singer who kept the dance floor totally engaged. They were totally flexible with the timing of the sessions to enable buffet times and the odd speech etc and also gave a list of covers for me to choose for the night. They kept in contact with me all the time as the big day approached to ensure no last minute hickups. Totally professional and would definetly have them again 10 out of 10 for me.

We can't express our thanks for last night. The whole band were outstanding from start to finish. The organisation leading into the wedding was so easy and straightforward and we couldn't have been happier. So many of our guests mentioned how good you were and many said it was one of the best live gigs they had ever seen. Last night you really brought the feel good factor and completely made our night. The first dance was something we will never forget so thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Lots of love Nathan
