What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We always try our best to be flexible 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.
How much time do you need to set up?
We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. If a PA is booked, as soon as it 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 pieces you play from the set list?
Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests enjoy the music and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, absolutely! We provide music and music stands to play acoustically. A set of armless chairs should be set up for us by the venue manager.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
