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

We have performed for Amazon at their work summer BBQ party and we have also performed for the Freemasons at one of their Masonic ladies nights. We also had the privilege of performing at Trevor McDonald's son wedding!

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

We have three main singers in the band, Leonie, Elle and Carla. However, if either are unavailable, we have a selection of other professional singers that dep for us and have performed with the band in the past. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all our performers are of an exceptionally high standard.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard line-up consists of a 5-piece band: female vocals, guitar, keys, bass and drums. We can also add a saxophone to our line-up if this is required for your needs and/or a 2nd singer. We can also provide a light jazz trio or a jazz quartet, including a singer for when something more subtle is required such as whilst guests are dining or conversing.

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

We try to be flexible to accommodate your schedule 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. However, our standard finishing time would be 11:30pm/12:00am. If you wish for us to play past midnight, there would be an additional fee, which would need to be negotiated.

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

Yes, a MacBook is provided before and during the breaks packed with over 1400 songs, or if you prefer, simply give us your iPod/phone if you already have a playlist you wish to use.

How much time do you need to set up?

It will take us about 90 minutes to set up our equipment and sound check. In order to achieve this, we need to be able to park as near to the venue as possible.

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?

PA, lighting and all equipment we provide is included in the quote. We usually require an area at least 3 metres x 3 metres. There will need to be at least 2x13 amp sockets near to where we will be performing. There will need to be somewhere for us to store our belongings. Light refreshments will also be required for up to five people.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, we are happy to learn one song for your event free of charge. However, don't forget to check our repertoire on the song list page to see if we already know it.
