Thank you so much for your brilliant sets on Sunday. Your low volume was perfect for the party. Everyone loved your music and it was an ideal accompaniment to the gorgeous weather.

Customer questions

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

We will do our best to fit in with your requirements. If its just a matter of starting a bit later or earlier its usually not a problem unless changing timings would clash with another booking that we have. If you ask us to play for longer or a lot later we may wish to ask for an addtional fee.

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

We can usually play recorded music throuugh our PA during our break provided you let us know in advance. It could be your music or ours. There would be no additional charge If you would like us to play recorded music through our PA before we start playing it may involve an additional charge because we might have to arrive earlier.

How much time do you need to set up?

Solo sax/clarinet with backing tracks about ten minutes Solo piano about 5 minutes if Charlie is to play the venue's piano or about 30 minutes if he has to bring his own piano. A Duo of clarinet/sax and guitar, (no vocals) 15 - 20 minutes A Duo of guitar/vocals and clarinet/sax about 35 minutes. Trio with cl/sax, gtr/voc & double bass about 40 minutes

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

We are happy for you to choose pieces from our set list.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Unless we are playing at a massive venue, we are entirely self-containted. All we need is one electric socket. If we are outside we need shelter from sunlight, wind and rain.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If we have to learn pieces that are new to us there may be an addtional charge, expecially if Charlie cannot find any printed music and has to learn them from Youtube
