Customer questions

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

We have several singers who we use regularly - you’ll see this from the videos. They’re all a similar fantastic standard and all have performed regularly with the band.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our usual lineup is 8 - 2 singers and 2 horns (or 3 singers and one horn), bass, keys, guitar, drums. We can offer smaller options and add percussionist and extra singers for a larger lineup (up to 10-piece)

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

We aim to be flexible however if we were suddenly needed to set up a lot earlier than originally booked, or to play much later, there may be an additional charge. Just let us know ASAP and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

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

This is offered as standard in our quotes

How much time do you need to set up?

Ideally 2 hours though we can set up faster if required - one hour is minimum

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

To an extent though I’d say we do know how to structure a set and generally best left to us - the norm would be to pick a couple of definite must-haves, or a couple of definitely don’t-wants!

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

Yes

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We do t generally do this. Feel free to ask as long as refusal won’t cause offence!

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We are very interactive as all on wireless mics which means we get on the dance floor, play on tables, lead conga lines etc! This is far more than your average function band can offer

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Just a few.... SAVOY HOTEL LONDON PARK LANE HILTON ROYAL LANCASTER HOTEL SHERATON GRANDE LAGUNA HOTEL PHUKET CLARIDGES BLENHEIM PALACE NATO EUROPEAN HQ HMS INVINCIBLE HMS BELFAST BIRMINGHAM ICC EMIRATES MARINA HOTEL, DUBAI CROWNE PLAZA, BAHRAIN WAYNE’S BAR, NICE PUNTA PRIMA RESTAURANTE, TORREVIEJA, SPAIN CHELSEA ARTS CLUB

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

The NYE Ball at the Sheraton Laguna in Phuket, Thailand.

From customers:

Lisa G, 3 years ago

Andy   I absolutely can’t thank you enough for the most amazing entertainment on Saturday – band were just fantastic and I am so glad I booked you guys; both of your singers were just great and of course everyone loved it.

Tamsin, B, 4 years ago

I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for playing at our wedding on Saturday. You were absolutely amazing and everyone loved it. I danced the entire night (very unsociable bride ha). I will recommend you to everyone I can. I wonder if pom poms will form part of your set again?!
