Customer questions

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

On rare occasions we may need to bring deputy musicians in for roles in order to cover for illness or other extraneous circumstances. All our deps are pre-auditioned and rehearsed to the high standard we seek to maintain, and in cases where our vocalist cannot make the gig we will inform you of the lineup change as soon as possible.

Do you have different line-up options?

We are available as a 3 piece or 4 piece band, and can also perform as a duo with the use of our own pre-recorded tracks for venues requiring lower volume or with limited space.

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

Generally speaking we can accommodate timing changes on the same date, but we generally ask for 24 hours notice if our arrival times are due to change. If you need to change the date of your event, please let us know as soon as possible and we will do our best to make ourselves available for the new date.

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

Yes, we are happy to provide music throughout the night after we have set up our PA system. Customized playlists can be available if discussed with the band, however in some cases may incur a small extra fee.

How much time do you need to set up?

We will generally aim to arrive at the venue at least an hour before our first set is scheduled to begin, however exact timings can be arranged per event.

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

We are always happy for our clients to choose a few songs that they'd like played from our setlist, and we will usually fill our set out with a few staples that always go down well!

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

Yes, we will provide a full lighting rig and PA system for shows.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, we are happy to discuss songs from outside our set, and if we know them we will be happy to play them. We can also learn specific songs by request, however we can't always guarantee every song will be possible with our lineup. You can purchase an add-on while booking us for a 3 song package along with a personal consultation.
