Customer questions

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

We assume a 5pm arrival and a 12pm finish, which is usual for most events. If you need an earlier arrival, it's best to contact us prior to making arrangments to see if it's possible. It's usually no problem, but if we're booked into other work during the day - studio, teaching, etc - then it may require us to cancel other jobs which might require a requote.

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

We do - and we're one of the few bands working that provides a LIVE DJ as one of our members has over 10 years experience as a live personality DJ in high street night clubs. Most groups will just put on an iPod.

How much time do you need to set up?

Ideally, we like a good 2 hours to set up and sound check. We're a bigger and more intricate band than most.

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

That's no problem. We would work with you to forge an ideal setlist based on our considerable experience of what works and what doesn't work.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?


Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

With enough time, this is not usually a problem.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our energy, our varied and appropriate song choices, the size and professionalism of the band.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Tunbridge Wells Assembly Hall Whitstable Playhouse Redditch Palace Theatre

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Barenaked Ladies Dire Straits Phil Collins and Genesis Eagles

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

Wells Next the Sea Festival - 3000+ people

If there was 100 on the rating I would give them that - Run Gizmo Run were fantastic. Fabulous musicians with a superb set list. Amazing performance from start to finish.
