Customer questions

We do also provide a DJ service including PA and lighting for an additional £500

How much time do you need to set up?

As an acoustic outfit we can be ready to play in 10 minutes. if using amplification we require at least a 60 minute soundcheck. We generally aim to arrive 1 hour before the start of the first set or soundcheck.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes - we perform acoustically so we can move around freely.

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.

Thanks so much for your amazing performance at our wedding. Everyone was blown away with your talent and said how incredible you were. It really made our day unforgettable - especially dancing outside in the sunset. Take me back, I want to do it again!!

On behalf of myself, Jane and ALL the guests thank you so so much for Saturday. We knew it was going to be great, it’s why we booked you, but it was even better than we could have imagined. So much fun and it’ll be so memorable. All the guests have been speaking about it since and saying how great it was
