Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

We will always strive to have all three of us on each gig. However, if one of us is unwell we will be able to utilise trusted professional dep musicians that we have played with for many years.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard line up is Keys, Drums and Double Bass. We are able to add Sax/Clarinet if required - please ask us for availability if this is of interest.

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

We can be flexible with event timings and we are well used to pre planned schedules being adapted during the course of events! However, if a change in timings results in substantial additional time on site or additional travel costs we may have to adapt your quote accordingly

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

We provide background music through our speakers during our breaks.

How much time do you need to set up?

We are pretty quick! We'll usually be set up within 30 minutes, but we like to arrive at least an hour prior to performance time to make sure everything is just right.

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

We're happy to discuss songs that you especially would like to hear from our repertoire - however, we are experienced at reading the room and usually sets are not pre planned so that we can be as adaptable as possible on the day.

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

We provide all PA and musical equipment. We do not currently provide lighting.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We're happy to learn one or two requests. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements as we may already know the song you're thinking of.

Hired the trio for my wife's 40th after seeing them perform live by chance, such talented musicians and really friendly polite people. Laura was a star and replied to my questions quickly by email and they all happily took requests. I hope to see them perform again soon!
