What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
We have performed at several high profile corporate awards shows including the BACSC and The Royal Dental Society.
Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?
We always do our best to provide clients with the lineup as displayed in our images and videos however in the case that a band member is ill or unavailable we have high quality 'dep' musicians who are ready fill in. These players are always pre-auditioned and will be the same professional standard as the rest of the band.
Do you have different line-up options?
Yes we have a wide range of lineups to suit your event. Our standard 5 piece band which consists of Vocals, Guitar, Keys, Bass and Drums can be reduced to 4 piece (without keys) or extended to a 6 piece (Sax), 7 piece (trumpet), 8 piece (additional female vocals), 9 piece (Additional Male Vocals) or 10 piece (Trombone).

We endeavour to remain as flexible as possible so just get in touch with us and we will do our best to adapt to your special day.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

How much time do you need to set up?
We recommend between an hour and and an hour and a half to full setup our equipment as well as sound check.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Yes we encourage our clients to look through out repertoire and to pick the songs that they really want to hear. We combine this with our own experience of picking songs that we will know work well together and ensure a smooth set to keep all your guests on the dance floor.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Yes all our quotes are fully inclusive and we are fully self contained.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Yes we are happy to learn one request free of charge. This could be a first dance or just a song you really want to hear on the night. Additional song requests can be discussed for a small additional fee.
