Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Yes, Candy is our singer and that's who you get. We're don't use 'dep' musicians, so you'll always get Candy, Pete, Adam and Rich as seen in the videos, unless someone is ill. But if Candy's ill (and she never is) we'd cancel rather than give you a substandard vocalist who didn't know the material.

Do you have different line-up options?

We can play as a 4 piece, 3 piece or a duo. Our line up is Candy on vocals and percussion, Pete on bass and vocals, Adam on guitar and vocals and Rich on drums and percussion. Like most professional bands, we use virtual digital instruments to fill out the sound.

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

We're professionals, so it wouldn't be any problem at all. Just keep us in the loop

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

Of course!. We can provide a DJ service for an additional fee or a Spotify/iPod service at no cost

How much time do you need to set up?

We need about 1- 1.5 hours to set up, but we always arrive in plenty of time and can provide music through the PA system within about 20 minutes of getting all the gear into the room. It's the first thing we do.

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

Yes, of course. But please be willing to consider our advice, gleaned from 100's of gigs.

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

Yes, and we have new state-of-the-art equipment. There are no extras

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, happy to learn a first dance for a wedding or a song that is special.
