Good Times ! The Good Times Trio and Function Band are here to entertain you !

"Good Times", more fully called The Good Times Trio and Function Band comprise Jacob Terry on guitar and vocals, Noel Grummitt on piano and vocals and Greg Schofield on guitar and vocals. We're joined by experienced drummer Andy Argyle when percussion or a full electric set is required. Although formed as recently as the beginning of 2019, we have been playing and making music together for a number of years in a connected duo and full band. Good Times offers a wide variety of well known pop, rock and rock n roll classics throughout the eras, covering most musical genres. Guaranteed to entertain, the band offers a complete package of musical entertainment from solo classical piano for those quieter moments through to a full blown dance floor filling electric set.

Customer questions

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

Yes. All the performers will be the same.

Do you have different line-up options?

The standard line up is a trio, comprising 2 electro acoustic guitars, piano / keyboards and three vocals. We can also add a drummer to the line up and play a full electric set. For multi performance packages, it is quite possible to "mix and match" our musicians, for example, to have solo keyboard for quieter moments and building the line up from there.

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

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

Yes, we can provide an ipod service either from your equipment (with your playlist) or from ours for free. We can offer a limited DJ service if required. Our PA can be used by a DJ of your choice until the venue closes for an additional £75.

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?

Yes

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We would endeavour to learn one or two songs of your choice given at least 1 month's notice, however there may be a premium payable of £40 per song for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We really love playing music and the most enjoyable thing for us is getting good feedback from an audience and seeing people dancing and enjoying themselves.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Although Good Times Trio is a new venture, our members have played together consistently for the last two and a half years either in our alternative 4 piece band or as duos at around 120 different venues from pubs to clubs, hotels, churches, private events and festivals.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

With three / four members of varying ages, our influences are pretty wide !

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

At the Great British Alternative Music Festival, Butlins, Minehead (with our alternative band, Falling Apart) and to an estimated audience of 12,000 people at the Downend Fireworks Spectacular in Bristol.

Dear Greg, just a short note from the Committee at Ilfracombe Rugby Club to thank Good Times for your performance at our annual Town Fireworks Display "Spooks & Sparks" on Sunday. We're delighted to provide a short testimonial to your act's professionalism and musical entertainment and your ability to hold the crowd despite some "draughty conditions" ! Thank you !

The Good Times function band followed by their alter ego band Falling Apart just performed three mind blowing sets of music in their own inimitable style at our Wedding Reception. The flexibility and skill of the guys as musicians was evidenced well by their enthusiasm to perform the numerous songs I requested from their repertoire. Just playing the songs is not what they are solely about, included within the performance is so much interaction with the watching and dancing guests. This ranged from ad lib comments and humour, through to Noel the keyboard player running into the crowd and dancing and generally rolling around the floor when certain songs permitted. They helped make a very good reception party into an amazing one, something which has subsequently been commented to myself by numerous guests who told me they thoroughly enjoyed the music so very much.
