Customer questions

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

Yes it will, it'll be me. The guitarist and drummer might be different to the videos on occasion as I work with a range of high quality, professional musicians who can fit with my schedule.

Do you have different line-up options?

The band is usually a three piece. We can add a saxophone player, a fantastic girl singer, or a keyboard player if you have particular requirements. We can, and have, covered everything from soul, Motown and 80s to a full Pink Floyd show.

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

That's absolutely fine, just let us know. We're all experienced musicians and will do everything to make sure your event runs smoothly.

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

Yes, we provide this as standard and it's free until midnight. If you need it for longer, there's a small increase in the fee.

How much time do you need to set up?

If the load in is straightforward then the PA can be running for your guests within 30 to 45 minutes, of our arrival at the venue. Usually we arrive a hour and a half before the band is required to play

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

If you have some requests from the list or just your favourites we will be happy to oblige. Similarly, if there's something you absolutely do not want to hear, that's fine as well.

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

We are a fully self contained show with lights and PA. Minimum space we require to set up is approximately three metres width by two metres deep but we will work with whatever is available if required.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Of course, this is our speciality and we don't charge extra. All we ask is at least two weeks notice so we can get what you want just right. See below Everlong The Foo Fighters Folsom Prison Blues Johnny Cash Chasing Rainbows Shed Thinking Out Loud Ed Sheeran Grow Old With Me Tom Odell Monkey Man The Specials In My Life The Beatles It Must Be Love Madness

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We engage with our audience and work very hard to make it a special night. We also make a big fuss of the client be it Bride/Groom or Birthday Boy/Girl. You'll be glad you picked us.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Wedding, party venues, and hotels all around and the length and breath of the country. We've played the SS Great Britain (it's a ship), castles, and on the back of a truck more than once. We're flexible.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

The band is influenced by lots of music, from pop to heavy metal to dance music. There's something to enjoy in everything, it's why we have a such a wide repertoire of songs.

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

Well ... we've all been around a bit. Even Rich, the baby in the band. Join us at the bar and we'll have a chat about it, okay ?

My 70th birthday party was a great evening made fantastic by Ian's band! They were great in every way. They arrived in plenty of time, setup quickly and efficiently and then the great music began! Beforehand Ian asked me for a list of the kind of music I liked and they played lots of my favorites and added in plenty for the younger partygoers too. Ian worked the crowd brilliantly and got us all dancing. We had a terrific time and I certainly totally forgot about my creaking 70 year old joints! I can wholeheartedly recommend Ian's band.
