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

How much time do you need to set up?

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

We're happy to take requests outside of our regular set list and if the music requested is very straightforward to incorporate then we will do so free of charge. If however the music requires considerable sourcing and producing parts for the band we have a £40 charge for this service per song.
