We had the pleasure to have this amazing band playing at our wedding and we couldn't have wished for better!! They sound soooooo good! So talented! They were very professional and flexible, and the communication with them was brilliant from day 1. Really really really recommended! All the guests were blown away! They kept the party very alive and they helped us to have the best ending for the wedding of our dreams! Thank you so much guys!! Adam & Noe -- The Vikings!

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

We understand that timings for any event can vary and always remain as flexible as possible within reason, both prior to and during the event. On the day of the event, a delay of more than 30mins in start time will be resolved by either: 1) shortening the performance 2) offering musicians an extra fee of £50/pp (providing that they are able to stay longer)

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

Yes absolutely - We provide both Disco Playlists and Manned DJ options. Please refer to your cover letter for what's included in your and what options are available as an upscale.

How much time do you need to set up?

We offer flexible setup solutions for any event and ensure that this is done in agreement with the client, venue and event planner.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes, we offer an acoustic and portable version of the band. Message us for more details.

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

You can select ALL your songs, and even some songs which aren’t on our list, to ensure that your show is fully-tailored and unique to your event.

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

Indeed. Remember, bands can only sound as good as the amplification they’re playing through. That's why we use PAT tested high-end amplification, as well as party, stage & mood lighting with a dedicated engineer, to ensure everything looks & sounds just right all throughout your event. * Make sure to ask your venue whether or not they use a noise limiter.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes. Learning new songs keeps us quick on our feet and keeps our repertoire fresh. This will normally be free of charge (within reason) * In case you have an exceptional request (i.e song arrangement for a large band or a large number of songs especially prepared) we may have to charge a bit extra.
