Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our friendly atmosphere, a good variety of sets and providing a great time for all.

Can you perform covers?

We'd be happy to discuss!

Do you have different line-up options?

We perform primarily as a 4-piece, but we can perform as a 3-piece or duo if need be.

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

If the timings change, let us know as we will aim to be as flexible as possible to ensure a good, smooth-running event.

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

Unfortunately, we do not. However, as our members come from a variety of disciplines (jazz, blues), we can provide background music in-between sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

Typically, our set up would only take around 30 minutes maximum, usually an hour before performance. This would include a brief soundcheck to ensure that everything is balanced, heard clearly and enjoyed by all.

Do you provide a caller?

We can indeed and this is always included as an option. If you require a caller, please let us know!

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

If you have any favourite traditional tunes that you'd like to dance to, please let us know as we'd be more than happy to play them for your event.

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

Equipment and travel is included in our quote.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We can do, if there is something you would like to request (that works with our instrumental line-up), please feel free to ask as we would be more than happy to do this for you.
