Do you have different line-up options?
As standard we perform as a duo but if you'd be interested in a trio or quartet (with bass and drums) then this is certainly something we can provide!
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We understand that events often don't run exactly how they've been planned and so we're happy to be a bit flexible with our performance times.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely. We're happy to provide a playlist for any period when we're not performing.
How much time do you need to set up?
As we only have a small group we'll only need about 20 minutes to set everything up.
Can you roam around while you perform?
As George is a piano player unfortunately this isn't possible! However if you'd like to have music performed in different areas of a venue over the course of an event we're certainly happy to move around and set up in different locations.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
If you'd like to request specific songs we'll do our best to accommodate this, but do let us know in advance.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Yes, all equipment is included and PAT tested.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Yes, we certainly can take song requests! If they would require transcription and/or rehearsing this may incur a small extra fee but this can be discussed prior to the event.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Our clients enjoy many things about our performances: our professionalism, our attention to detail, our communication both before and during the event, but above all they love the quality and variety of our music. The mix of beautiful ballads, smooth swing tunes and reimagined pop classics creates a magical and authentic ambience that is enjoyed by everyone.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
We've performed in many different venues for a variety of events, such as in a beautiful converted barn for a wedding breakfast, a stylish 5* hotel for a private event, on larger stages as a warm up act for corporate functions, and even in living rooms and village halls for quaint birthday parties.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
We take inspiration from all sorts of artists and genres. Some of our favourites include: Bill Evans, Joshua Redman, Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, Ella Fitzgerald, The Beatles, Charlie Parker, Cole Porter, Etta James, and John Coltrane.
