Customer questions

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

The singer will definitely be part of the lineup as he's also the manager of the band. We do work with some deps from time to time when the other regular band members are not available. They are all seasoned professionals, who can be trusted to perform to the same level as the main guys, otherwise they wouldn't be playing for us.

Do you have different line-up options?

We do have trio and quartet options available. The Trio consists of Guitar, Bass and Drums. The quartet is the same line up with an additional guitar or keyboards depending on your preference..

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

You can contact us at any point to let us know of any timing changes and we'll be happy to accomodate you as far as possible. Please let us know as soon as possible if your timings require us to start earlier than 7pm or leave later than midnight, as this usually incurs an additional charge of £150 to cover the musicians' time.

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

Yes we can. We provide background music as standard for all bookings, which can happen before, during or after live sets. If you'd like to upgrade this to a bespoke DJ service, then were only too happy to provide this for an additional cost of £150 for the evening.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually require around 60 - 75 minutes to setup prior to the start of our performance.

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

Our general rule of thumb is that you can tell us what songs you love and what songs you hate, but the rest will be up to us. We've played numerous weddings and create each set list on the spot depending on what people are responding to, so we need as much flexibility as possible to ensure the everyone has a great time.

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

All equipment necessary for our performance will be included in the quote. This includes PA (2 x Mackie SRM450 speakers, 1 x Soundcraft Ui24r digital mixer), backline (guitar amp, bass amp, drum kit), lights (2 x 4 light partybars) and background music. If your space requires a larger PA, then we may charge an additional fee of £80 to cover this

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We can learn your first dance for you (provided it works with a trio/quartet playing it) and this is included in the price we quote. If you want us to learn any additional tracks, then there is a supplemental fee of £50 per track to cover rehearsals etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

That we haev great fun onstage, can take requests on the spot and can work the crowd into a frenzy. We've consistently been told that we are the best band a wedding goer has seen.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

As a band - Berkeley Castle, St Audries Park, Paintworks Bristol, Shelsey Walsh Raceway Individually - Glastonbury, T in the Park, Radio 1 weekender, USS Medway (aircraft carrier docked in San Fransisco), Royal Albert Hall, Tower Bridge, Grosvenor House Hotel, The Dorchester, Sardinia, South of France, Austria, the list is endless!

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

We performed for Brian May's (he of Queen fame) daughter's wedding. That was particularly stressful as no one knew until the day of the wedding as they'd kept it secret. He was lovely (as was his daughter) and very complimentary about us.
