Customer questions

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ/Music Playlist service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £150.”

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up before your guests arrive and usually 2 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance if this is something you require.

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

Yes, our motto is Music For The Moment and it's important to us that we provide you with the best music we can. We're really flexible when it comes to crafting a specific set list. Talk to us.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes we are fully equipped for intimate or large venues.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, with enough notice we can cover any song in our own style of course. If there is enough notice for rehearsal time then we don't charge for the first 2 songs. After this we charge £50 per song.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The space and tasteful way we perform and deliver our music.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed in theatres, big stages at festivals, art centres, pubs, restaurants, cathedrals, we even regularly busk on the streets. We're happy playing our music most anywhere.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

If T-Bone Walker did jazz he'd sound like Barny. Joanne's roots lie with Ella fitzgerald.

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

Main Stage at The British Rhythm & Blues Festival as part of the Smokehouse Blues Band in 2010

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your performance this evening during a business stop over at The Lowry Hotel. I didn't expect to be up so late but you began your first set as my meal arrived at The River Restaurant. I spend a very enjoyable evening listening to you all and would hope to catch you again one day. Good luck for the future. Nathan Glen
