What if my timings change after I've booked you?
When you book with us, we keep that date & time in our diary just for you. We understand that timings for any event can vary and always remain as flexible as possible within reason, while communicating with you prior to and throughout the event. Please note: Additional fees may apply for finishing after midnight (in line with Musician Union regulations).
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
All our bookings include a bespoke DJ playlist service throughout the event, tailored with all your song requests. Live DJ sets are also available at a special price.

We offer flexible setup solutions for all types of events and in discussion with the client, venue & event planner will ensure our setup time meets the event timings & specifications.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
You can select ALL your songs, tunes & dances. You can even select some songs which aren’t on our list. We love learning new songs, and ensuring your show is fully-tailored and unique to your event.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA) included in your quote?
Indeed. Remember, bands can only sound as good as the amplification they’re playing through. That's why we use PAT tested high-end amplification, as well as party, stage & mood lighting with a dedicated engineer, to ensure everything looks & sounds just right all throughout your event. * Make sure to ask your venue whether or not they use a noise limiter.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Yes. Learning new songs keeps us quick on our feet and keeps our repertoire fresh. This will normally be free of charge. * In case you have an exceptional request (i.e song arrangement for a large band or a large number of songs especially prepared) we may have to charge a bit extra.
