Do you have different line-up options?
Either 5 or 6 piece. 6 = Drums x2 (on stilts if required)/ x2 Trumpets/Trombone/Sousaphone. 5 = Drums x1 (on stilts if required)/ x2 Trumpets/Trombone/Sousaphone.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We will always try to be as flexible as possible. After all, we want your event to be as successful as possible. So, just let us know and we'll do what we can to accommodate.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes, no problem. We have a great p.a. system and are happy to play your material in between sets, or for a charge we can DJ for you.
How much time do you need to set up?
For acoustic only events we only need to get our costumes and stilts on and we are ready to go. So, 15 mins. For events using the p.a. then usually around an hour.
Can you roam around while you perform?
Yes,definitely. We love it!
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Yes, no problem.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Yes, p.a. and lighting is all including in your quote.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Yes, no problem. As our line-up is quite different to a regular function band, the song request needs to be completely re written to suit our instrumentation. We love adding new songs to our repertoire, so it's no problem if we know far enough in advance. It would be at a fee of £50 per song to take into account writing and rehearsals.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
We are a pretty unique line-up. You not only get the great tunes that you might hear from a regular function band, but we have the facility to roam or be on stage. Acoustic or powered. There's a great energy about the band that's infectious. Plus, we have STILTS! We're want you want but.......different!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
There's too many to mention. More recently we were performing at Emmerdale Farm. Then we were at a working Windmill. Then, a great Jazz Club in Nottingham. Then, New Year's Eve at Revolucion de Cuba.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
We love the New Orleans, 'Second-Line' style. So, bands like the Hot 8 and Rebirth Brass band we love. The arrangements of Stevie Wonder, the power of the great 'riff' of any great rock band and the simplicity of a great pop chorus. If it's good, we love it!
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
The Royal Albert Hall.....amazing!
