Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

we love to throw in those nostalgic sing alongs form the 90s and 00's - it really gets even the grumpiest of guests onto the dance-floor!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Musicians in the band have played all over the world including Dubai, Bahrain, Italy and Italy. We've also had some performances in the West End, and major UK festivals such as Reading and Leeds festival.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We love all kins of pop through the ages

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

Some fo the band have played at the Royal Albert Hall in London- pretty fancy!

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

Yes. We try to keep all the musicians as per the videos. However, if there is an issue with any member of the band such as illness that prevents from getting to the event then we have a fantastic network of 'dep' musicians to call upon. If our singer is not available, we'll make sure to contact you in advance and let you know.

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes, we can increase the standard 4-piece band up to a 6 piece with ease, and even an 8 piece if desired. The standard and most common additions are a sax and keys player, but sometimes we perform with additional singers too!

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

That's ok - just let us know in advance and we can be flexible to help the event run smoothly.

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

Yes we provide this. We are happy for you to bring along an iPad/iPod too or share a playlist with us if you prefer!

How much time do you need to set up?

at least 90 mins from arrival to load the equipment in and set up. ideally 2 hours or more if possible, but we're pretty fast at this stuff now!

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

We have a pretty good idea of what does and doesn't work at parties and weddings, but we do let you suggest songs form our rep or make some requests prior to the event that you might want to hear. If we don't play it we can also ensure its in the playlist too!

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

Yes that's right - and we can be flexible on pricing if you already have a sound system in place.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

for a first dance at a wedding we learn this free of charge. We can potentially learn specific requests and have done so before, but these will require rehearsal time for the musicians if we haven't played it before. Get in touch with details and we can see what we can do.

We booked Poppin’ Candy after finding them online and I have to say it was our best decision. From start to finish they have been fantastic. Joe is brilliant with his communication as weddings can be an anxious time but he always put my mind at ease. The band arrived and the party never stopped. Guests have commented at what a fantastic band they were and the dance floor was packed all night. We want to say a huge thank you for celebrating with us and making it a day/night we will never forget. The new Mr & Mrs Reilly.

We booked Poppin' Candy for our wedding and they were absolutely fantastic. Joe was professional and personable throughout the planning; and was really supportive and positive when we had to postpone our original date due to Covid. In the run-up to the Wedding, he was amenable to arranging an early set-up, which we really appreciated as we were worried about the room turnaround between the meal and the evening reception. All the logistics ran like clockwork on the day and the band were everything we hoped they'd be and more. Everyone was on the dancefloor all night and our guests were all talking about how good the band were. Getting the right band was really important to us and we were delighted with our choice. Thank you so much! xxx
