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

We try and be as flexible as possible so please just talk to us and we will accommodate you as best as we can.

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

Yes we are more than happy to do this. We also have the cables and connections should you wish to plug your own iPod/Phone in to play your own lists. If you have your own Spotify playlists created before the event then you can share these and we can play them for you. If you require music after our performance then we can quote for you a DJ service

How much time do you need to set up?

Our set up is quite compact so usually we can set up within 30 minutes, however we normally arrive 1 hour before just for extra peace of mind.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes - we either perform acoustically or with wireless microphones attached to our instruments so we can move around freely. Please just confirm in advance if this is something you would like so we can bring the right microphones!

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

We have a very organic approach to our set by working the set around your guests and their feedback, we also take in to account the mood and our experience or which songs to choose at the right time so in theory the song choices should flow. We also aim to have a call in advance to discuss styles and songs to ensure it meets your expectations

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

Yes our price includes us bringing our own PA & Lighting, our PA covers up to audience size of 200 people. If your event is catering for an audience larger than this please let us know in advance as we will require a bigger PA

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes we are happy to take requests, ideally please submit your request within a month of the your event. We are used to learning two new songs for each event especially for wedding ceremonies (i.e. Entrance and Exit walk) so if there's any additional songs above this we will just need to confirm an additional fee based on the additional rehearsal time

We were luckily to have these guys step in at the last minute, due to Covid our original act had to pull out on the day! Not only did they perform so well our guests have been talking about them since.

We hired Kelly & Paul for the launch event of our new flagship venue. We had already heard great things about them as they have been the most requested act at our other venues. They have a great sound which really stands out and are very easy to work with.
