Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

There are plenty of DJ live groups doing the "Ibiza" club thing, however there are virtually none that perform your favourite party tunes - this requires an extremely high level of musicianship. We are ideal if you don't fancy a full band, but still want that entertaining and exciting live element - which is more than a DJ can offer on their own.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Blenheim Palace, Grosvenor House, The Connaught, St Mawes Castle, All England Lawn Tennis Club, Natural History Museum, The Grove Hotel.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

James Brown, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Kahn, Bruno Mars, Amy Winehouse, Earth Wind & Fire, Spice Girls, to name a few!

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

A intimate party or a huge wedding, we will give it our all no matter what the event!

Do you have different line-up options?

We can add percussion to the lineup.

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

We expect timings to change a little here and there, so don't worry. It is likely that an earlier finish will not reduce the price however. Extending beyond midnight may incur a surcharge. We are likely booked for the evening, so minor schedule changes won't matter.

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

Yes, you can book the DJ to perform in between the two live sets, but we will always put on a playlist between our breaks if you prefer. You are more than welcome to provide us with a playlist also.

How much time do you need to set up?

As standard, we will arrive at 4:30 to begin load in. Our set up will be 5:00 - 6:30 with a sound check shortly after. We can usually shorten this time however, and make allowances if the event is running late. We like to leave plenty of time, just in case.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes, our brass players use wireless microphones so they can join you on the dance floor!

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

Yes of course. Give us your favourite songs and we will include them. It is likely that we will add some of our own suggestions as we want to make the most of our excellent brass players, playing all the great riffs you hear on your favourite records.

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

Yes. It is state of the art gear, with amazing synchronised LED lighting displays, high end PA gear, with wireless microphones and in-ear-monitor systems for the musicians. Our gear is worth over £15k!

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, any song is possible!
