Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our clients love the fact we dont waste time talking between songs. With us you pay for 2 hours of live music, you get 2 hours of live music. We also pride ourselves on having something for everyone in the set. All decades are catered for from the 50s to 20s

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed at St Marys Stadium Igeas Bowl Vicky Park Festival Hermitage Hotel Balmer Lawn Hotel Marsham Court Hotel and many more

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Every wedding we play feels like our most high profile. You cannot get better than performing on the biggest day of 2 peoples lives. It always gets us pumped up.

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

Yes. We may use dep musicians for other areas of the band, but the front man will always be the same.

Do you have different line-up options?

We don't tend to go out other than a 4 piece, but have occasionally performed as a 3 piece.

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

We will always try to be flexible and understand these things can sometimes happen and are out of the clients control. However our members do work in full time jobs, so some timings may not be workable.

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

A separate DJ isn’t required when you book with us, we’ll put a playlist on while we’re not performing. If you’ve got any requests send them over and we’ll put them in!

How much time do you need to set up?

Ideally we would like 90 minutes, but can be as little as 60 minutes. The more time allowed the better the set up will be.

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

It is easier for you to tell us songs you DONT want us to play. We will then make up a set from the remaining songs. We can always send it over to you before hand to check.

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

Yes, we bring all our gear to each show.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

For your wedding we are happy to learn a song request, which could be your first dance. We do ask for at least 12 weeks notice so we can make sure to rehearse it properly.
