Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes - we either perform acoustically or with microphones attached to our instruments so we can move around freely.

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

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

We provide two Acoustic amps for our performance. This is not a full PA system. We don't provide lighting as it doesn't fit the aesthetic of the act.

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £50 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

Hello James, The music was loved by everyone that attended and many commented on it to us. Some of them were sitting down and listening to you and enjoying the music. One of our friends loved Hotel California in particular and it was the first time he had heard the song performed with this particular instrumentation. He was absolutely delighted! Thank you for contributing to making our event successful.
