Do you have different line-up options?
We generally play as a duo but can add double bass, drums and/or a front line instrument like trumpet or saxophone if you'd like something a bit different!
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We always try our best to be flexible to help your event run as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event let us know and we'll try our best to work around you!
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Unfortunately we don't have a PA/speaker system to do this with but can bring an iPod with an appropriate playlist if you do!
How much time do you need to set up?
We usually only need about half an hour maximum before the performance as the set-up is quite simple.
Can you roam around while you perform?
Yes we can play and sing acoustically if you'd like that!
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Yes of course - our set list is comprised of the songs we enjoy and are comfortable with playing, but we know most tunes within the 'jazz standards' bracket so would be more than happy to chat about it and see what works for you.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
We don't have a PA, we usually just play with guitar and microphone through an amp which can be as loud or quiet as you want. This is included in our quote.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it - but if we don't we are happy to learn up to three songs of your choice!
What do your clients love most about your performances?
We've been told the thing that really comes across is the musical relationship - how much we listen and respond to each other when we play.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Together and between us we have played many venues - mainly in London - including Ronnie Scott's, The Barbican Theatre, Buster Mantis, Folklore, Spice Jazz Soho, Off The Cuff, the Junction, Laylow, the Lighthouse and the Water Rats.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
We love and listen to a wide range of music from the more traditional jazz like Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass, to modern players such as Brad Meldhau and Paul Motian. Aside from jazz we also listen to artists such as Talking Heads, Pink Floyd and Radiohead.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Between us we've played alongside big names such as Jim Mullen, Claire Martin and Jason Rebello. We've also played at world famous Ronnie Scott's jazz club in Soho.
