Do you have different line-up options?
No. Due to the specific nature of the music we play, our standard line up does not vary.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We understand that timings change, even on the day itself, so we always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes, we have the facility to connect iPods/iPads etc to our PA system to supply your own playlists between sets, or we have our own. If you wish to continue having music playing after midnight, then there would be an additional charge of £100.00 for this.
How much time do you need to set up?
Ideally two hours as we have to set up PA, lighting, all our musical equipment and mix check it all to ensure everything sounds and looks great when your guests arrive. We can do it quicker but we don't like to rush these things and it is good to have the time to resolve any technical issues that might arise at the venue.
Can you roam around while you perform?
No. Our singers move about on stage but the style of music we play does not lend itself to roaming.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
The music we play is very specific and requires a lot of programming of synthesisers to get each song to sound authentic and to be able to play them live as efficiently as possible. This means we are unable to do requests, I'm afraid. But all the songs in our set list are great and have always gone down well at our other events.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Yes. For medium sized venues up to 300 people. Anything larger would require additional equipment, FOH engineer and transport which would be added to any quote. Our band performance footprint is a minimum of 7m wide by 5m deep with easy access to power sockets. We cannot play in venues that have a noise inhibitor, unless it can be turned off.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Due to the nature of our music, this is not easy to do. However, we are open for negotiations. There would be an additional charge for this and that would be based on the complexity of the work required to replicate the song you have requested. We would need to know about this at the booking stage to maximise the time we have to program and learn it.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Clients love our selection of material as we offer an alternative to the normal perception of '80s music'. Clients often react with "wow, I haven't heard that song for years". They also love our authenticity and attention to detail when we perform those songs and this is very important to us as we work hard to make them sound just like the originals.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
We have performed at many venues both public and private. Westminster Bridge Park Plaza Hotel, London The Grange City Hotel, Tower Bridge, London The Majestic Hotel, Harrogate Yeah Baby Festival, Abingdon Burnham Park Hall, Burnham Park Knebworth House, Knebworth Beaconside House, Bideford Treetops, Bewdley Croxfest, Croxley Green Balstock, Baldock
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
We are influenced by the bands whose songs we perform: Duran Duran Depeche Mode Yazoo Visage Simple Minds ABC Erasure Human League Culture Club Ultravox Gary Numan Frankie Goes To Hollywood Heaven 17 Eurythmics Aha Thompson Twins Toyah OMD Tears For Fears
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Headlining Croxfest in 2017 was amazing. Playing in front of over 4000 people.
