I’m yours
Used to love you
All of me
Ain’t no mountain
Stuck in the middle with you
Blame it on the boogie
Wanna be like you
Thinking out loud
Say you won’t let go
Someone like you

Customer questions

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

Just inform me as soon as you can and fingers crossed we can be flexible!

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

Definitely yes, we would highly recommend having a set list in between sets to keep the atmosphere going. DJ can be provided, with lighting rig etc to play in between sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

Depending on the band arrangement we can set up in about a hour to be safe.

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

Of course you can, we want to make our events as bespoke as possible to enrich your experience and make it personal so by all means select away!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, we provide all the equipment required so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Just a power supply :)

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

We can most definitely learn specific pieces yet, more than happy to expand our repertoire for gigs. We do charge £30 per song to account for extra rehearsal time to learn songs that we don’t already know, but most likely we do know songs that are suggested.
