Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

That we can cater for any event! Whether you want a live lounge set or an upbeat function set we can do it all! We love a wide range of genres also so the sky the limit! I think people also appreciate that we are super down to earth, trustworthy and easy to work with :)

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

So many! I couldn't possibly list them all! We have done the works! From Weddings, Corporate Events, Festivals to Army Barracks all over the UK and internationally.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love a big mixture of artists and genres, my favourites vary all the time but some genres I enjoy are: RnB, Soul, Motown, Pop, Pop punk, Country, Rock n Roll, 90's is really my era but I love 50s music - Now!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

For BBC Stargazing Live!

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes! Our line up is currently Guitar & Vocals but you can add drums/cajon, keys player all the way up to a full band etc!

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run-up to the event just let us know as far in advance as you can! :)

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

Yes! We are happy to include background music in-between sets for you. We can do this by using a Spotify playlist, or alternatively you can share your Spotify link with me or pass me your device (iPod, phone, tablet etc) on the day!

How much time do you need to set up?

60-90minutes including getting changed.

Can you roam around while you perform?

No. We have wired microphones so can't venture too far but that doesn't mean we can't still put of a good show! :)

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 always take your favourites into account and do our best to include them in our set list for you!

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

Yes! Our full P.A system is included in your quote so there's nothing to worry about there! We normally just need 2x2m of space and 2 plug sockets to plug into.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

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 included in the price. If there is more than one new song you'd like us to learn this will incur a fee of £50 per song.
