Project F played two amazing sets at our International Women’s Day Dance in Whitstable in March 2024. They were fantastic from beginning to end! Communication was great before the gig and they were friendly, accessible and professional throughout. They played a wide range of fabulous music which was spot on and had all our guests dancing and singing along. All the band are great musicians but what a coup to have such a fantastic, confident woman at the top of her game on lead vocals, epitomising the theme of this event. We’ve had such positive comments since the gig and I can’t recommend this band highly enough.

Ginger and her band Project F played at my party at The Old Brewery Store in Faversham, having been recommended by a friend. I saw them perform at the Hop Festival and thought "yes this looks good". In truth it was more of a success than I could have hoped for. They created an electric atmosphere with everyone dancing and having such fun. Ginger’s stage presence was phenomenal, to the point where we could hardly take our eyes off of her. A really talented band that exceeded my expectations. Brilliant. What a party we had!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our clients love that we are so approachable and accommodating. Its obvious that we love what we do and love interacting with our audience.. We know how to read the room.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Margate Winter Gardens University of Kent Dreamland Margate Gulbenkian Theatre Eurotunnel Ball NHS Ball

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

Yes always ! Our Lead Singer has never been ill. But we do have a relief singer in the wings to cover - just in case. We are a professional band so be assured we always deliver

Do you have different line-up options?

We come as a great six piece package or can add on extra horns for that full Motown blast or Big band feel

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know. Look at our reviews. That's our most frequent comment that we are lovely and flexible.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. As soon as our PA is up we turn on the tunes. If you would like your own music played between sets we will play that through our PA or use one of our funky playlists and will include your songs.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

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

Well you could, but trust us. We're a great little band that's why you booked us. If you especially love some songs on our song list, let us know and we will make sure we include as many of them as possible on the night. Equally tell us what songs you really don't like and we will avoid them.

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

Our PA and lighting system is usually in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 16' x 12 space to perform. For large events / venues we may need additional sound/ lighting. We always suggest a consultation in these cases to ensure we achieve the best sound for your event.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £120 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc
