El Toro came and played at our wedding in May this year, at a hotel on Dartmoor. They were outstanding. All of our guests loved them and they managed to get people on the dance floor we never thought would! They also learned a couple of extra songs we wanted and travelled a fair way to be with us on our special day. Can't thank them enough, it was the perfect way to end a perfect day and we'll be looking out for their gigs in the future too. Thanks Henry Ray and the rest of the guys, Dave and Caroline Heale

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our clients love the fact that we're not just a band that plays songs, we are a band that puts on a show. We like to mix songs up, and provide a party atmosphere that gets the crowd going!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed at various wedding venues and marquees across the southwest, from posh hotel/resorts to local village halls. Some recent examples are: Celtic Manor - Wales Bowood Hotel/Resort - Wiltshire The Manor House - Castle Combe Ringfied Farm - Stroud Lansdown Grove Hotel - Bath

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Not so much as artists as there are too many to mention, but we love the funk, and classic rock genre's as well as all music hits from the 60's 70's and 80's

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

We have done many high profile gigs, however our favourite was the Mercedes Corporate awards show at Celtic Manor

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Yes, the singer will be the same. We strive to make sure the full line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up is as follows: Vocals/Guitar, Bass, and Drums/Vocals.

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.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £150 per hour.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

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?

Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 20ft. by 20ft. space to perform

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. There is a fee of £50 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
