Melodies for your chuppah:
Do you have different line-up options?
Our line-up is generally 4-piece: violin/dance caller, clarinet, accordion/guitar, double bass/cello. We can also arrange for a bigger band.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We are generally happy to cater for an hour's variance either side of the contracted times, but this may not be possible at short notice or during busy times of year.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
We can provide a playlist or plug in your cued-up choice of tunes into our PA. If you need to use our PA after the final set, we'd need to agree this in advance, and there would be an extra charge.
How much time do you need to set up?
We need about an hour to set up if we're using a sound system, and recommend that we finish setting up around half an hour before your guests arrive. If it's an acoustic set, we can arrive and play within half an hour or so.
Can you roam around while you perform?
When playing acoustically we're happy to move from place to place - although with the double bass, it tends not to be strolling as such!
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
We are experienced at providing appropriate tunes for background music, dancing, chuppah etc. but are happy to discuss particular requests.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Our PA is included in the quote.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
We are happy for you to ask us for up to 3 requests outside our usual set list. There is a fee of £30 per tune to take account of transcribing and learning new material.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Clients love our traditional sound and upbeat vibe.
