Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

We come either as an acoustic duo (vocals and guitar) or trio (saxophone, vocals and guitar)

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

If timings change in the run up to your event just let us know, we try to be as flexible as possible. The more notice you give, the more easily we can accommodate the change.

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

Yes, we subscribe to Spotify so we could put a set list together of suitable music at your request.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually only need 20 minutes to set up - one of the benefits of being an acoustic duo!

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

Yes of course - you can choose which songs you would like and leave it to us to create the right mood for your event.

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

Yes absolutely. We have our own amps, mics, cables and stands.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't on our set list we may still know it so it's always worth asking. We can also learn specific songs if we are given enough notice as we like to create our own unique arrangements and that takes time.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our reviews say it all! We have been described as sleek and professional, delivering a smooth and relaxing feel for events. Customers have commented that within minutes of Nightfall starting to play, they have felt relaxed, calm and happy. A recent client described us as "timeless".

Nightfall played at my retirement party and they set the mood beautifully. Sarah has an amazing jazz tone to her voice and Malcolm's guitar playing was great. They really helped create a relaxed atmosphere and the guests appreciated their talents. They were professional and friendly, I would certainly recommend to anyone.
