Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The most common feedback we get is the surprise that such a young band can play a wide variety of music, ranging from the 60s to current hits.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We played in various pubs and open festivals in Milton Keynes, Daventry, Potton, Northampton, and more.

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

Yes, he is our frontman, guitarist, and vocalist. In the unlikely event of him falling ill or unable to attend, we have a pre-auditioned 'dep' that will be ready to step in.

Do you have different line-up options?

We also offer a 2 or 3-piece line-up if you prefer to have a more acoustic/relaxed evening, although we always recommend a full line-up for the best possible experience.

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

Do let us know. I'm sure we will be able to adjust things that suit you most.

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

Definitely, we provide DJ service during the band's breaks, so you'll never get bored. If you'd like us to provide you with DJ services after the live band, let us know, and we can sort it out.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually need about 1.5 to 2 hours to set up.

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

We crafted our setlist based on countless performances, and we found out what works best to liven up the crowd. However, we're happy to discuss adjustments over the phone or via messages.

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

Yes, we offer a PA system, colourful lights, and fairy lights.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Please let us know any requests, and we can discuss the opportunity of performing it during your special event.
