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.

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free.

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.

We booked Falling Apart for our pirate themed wedding, the lads were amazing! . The weather was against us but it didn't stop play. All our wedding guests old and young were up dancing all night long. Brilliant play list, something for everyone to enjoy. The guys were even happy to get involved judging the best dressed pirate competition!! Very accommodating with timing .. 1st dance and breaks. Professional fun makers !!
