Lodestone you were truly AMAZING. We booked them for our Christmas party. Easy to book, organised themselves to set-up and breakdown at the end of the evening. They were very helpful, and helped us set-up a quiz, with a music intro round and pre-loaded the songs prior for us. They couldn't do enough to help! They are talented, entertaining and genuinely the nicest guys around! All our staff loved them, and commented how great they were. You guys were truly fabulous, you made the night and thanks for letting our us do a charity karaoke song 🤣🤣!! Definitely book you again!!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The effort we put into each performace. Not only the music and songs, but we've taken the time to design lighting too to really improve stage presence.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

As with the majority of cover bands, because we cover such a wide variety of music, it's hard to not be influenced by each one in some way, shape or form.

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

Yes, Our lead singer will always be the same person you see in the videos.

Do you have different line-up options?

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-auditioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band, our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

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

No worries at all, give us a call or drop us a message and I'm sure we can accomodate changes.

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

We can provide playlisted background music from our PA before, in between and after. But this is limited to pre-loaded songs. We do have an additional option of a separate DJ for our events. The cost of this would be £300 extra.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually like to leave 2 hours for set up and sound check.

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

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

Yes, we have all our equipment covered in the price you see on the site.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Provided we have enough time and the song is suitable, of course we can learn a special song.
