Absolutely fantastic. Suzy communicated promptly and was really helpful. The band were accommodating and flexible in setting the timings. On the night they got the crowd going from the start and the dance floor was full to the last minute. A fabulous mix of music and loads of stage presence. They were really part of the event and all our guests commented about the warmth of the show. We can't thank Firefly enough.

Absolutely brilliant - they had the experience and expertise to know exactly which songs to perform at the right times, and they really had our wedding guests rocking all evening. Communication from Suzy was spot on from start to finish, she is absolutely lovely. I highly recommend this band!

Hi Suzy, thanks for your lovely message. We and all our guests were stoked by your sessions for our wedding. We had a fabulous day and honeymoon and was everything we wanted. All great. Sorry we didn't get to mix with you guys but we greatly appreciated how you chatted with and included guests in your performance and became part of the event. Have been meaning to write glowing reports on Facebook. Thanks to the band and you especially xxx

Customer questions

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

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have fully rehearsed & very experienced 'deputy' 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?

Ooh, yes! In addition to the 2 female lead singers & 2 male lead singers (double up as drummer & guitarist), 4-part harmonies, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, drums & optional saxophone, we can also provide trumpet, trombone and / or percussion.

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

No problem at all! We're very flexible and will work around your timings. Your event is 100% about you and not us and it's imperative that you get exactly what you want, to suit you!

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

Yes, we provide DJ-mixed playlists between live music sets + dance floor lights inc gobos and lasers, free of charge. So it's like a disco, without a manned DJ talking over the music. We can provide you with a manned DJ service for an extra charge if you'd like this.

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?

100% fully PAT tested! We also have full Public Liability insurance + risk assessments

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, we're very happy to learn a song of your choice, free of charge.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Don't take it from us! Hear it from one of our many happy clients: "Hi Suzy, we just wanted to get in touch and say a huge thank you for last night! You guys were brilliant & we loved every second - we've had so many comments from the guests about how amazing you were so thank you so much!"

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

100's of venues ranging from 5 star Manor House Hotel for the last 5 NYE's to NATO & the RAF to Sudeley Castle for many weddings, Sony, The Law Society, Guernsey Airport, Oxford University, Westonbirt School, Millfield School, JonJo O'Neill racing, Kenwood House, The Royal Horseguards, Whitehall (2 NYE's), Frocester Festival (headline act), & many more!
