Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

No, but that's not a bad thing! We think that our clarinet quartet is perfectly balanced and that by taking away or adding a player, we would be ruining that balance. We do occasionally, however, perform with percussion.

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

If the circumstances of your event change, just get in touch with us, and we'll try to accommodate your requirements. Please be aware that, though we will do everything we can to help, it may not be possible to meet your new arrangements, especially if details change with little advance notice.

How much time do you need to set up?

For a standard acoustic performance (without microphones), we would be able to set up in 15-30 minutes, though would appreciate any extra time that can be given.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Though we can move whilst playing, it is preferable that we are stationary, simply because this could affect our playing.

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

Absolutely! And if you don't see something that tickles your fancy, you can always request something new.

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

Unfortunately, any additional equipment required would come in excess of our quote. Please note that we do not ordinarily provide PA/LX equipment to clients - this is usually your responsibility.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Of course. Just contact us with as much advance notice as possible, and we'll see what we can do for you. Note that this may come at an additional small charge, depending on the complexity of the piece.
