Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes, we are able to perform with a fuller line-up and provide music for gigs requiring Gypsy Jazz, Klesmer, Ceilidh with up to five musicians.

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

Not a problem unless we have to run to another gig. We do our best to leave enough time between jobs in order to allow for late starts.

How much time do you need to set up?

We require 30 minutes for set up as a duo. 1 to 1.5 hrs for larger set up with PA etc.

Can you roam around while you perform?

As a duo we are able to roam while playing, this would be acoustically without amplification in order to move around freely.

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

Yes of course. We can also consider requests with enough notice to learn them!

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

Yes, although as our usual set up is a duo we mostly use small amplifiers. PA available on request for larger events.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes we can, if suitable for our instrumentation.
