Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We pride ourselves on our professional service from the first enquiry onwards. We aim to be as flexible and accomodating as possible, particularly on the day of the event. Our clients always comment on the quality and 'tightness' of our musicians and our vocal harmonies.

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

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line up is as follows: Lead Vocals Bass/vocals Drums/vocals Keys/vocals Guitar

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.

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 standard and even extend the use of our playlist DJ service and our PA after the final set until the venue closes!

How much time do you need to set up?

We can be all set up and ready to go in about 60 - 90 mins and this is usually best done just before the performance time. If you require an earlier set up, this is available for a small fee. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide our complementary 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?

We're definitely happy to chat through songs and requests and make sure we find what works for your event. However, our set lists are crafted from countless live performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. We know how to fill a dance floor and we'll read the room on the night to keep the party going!

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

All equipment is included in the quote, including our lighting system and PA and microphones available for your speeches. We usually require a minimum 4 x 5 metre space to perform.

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, as long as the song is suitable for our band. We are more than happy to discuss this with you.

WOW. What an incredible band Relative Cool are. They played at our wedding and created such an amazing atmosphere. They played some fantastic songs, got everyone up dancing and kept the dancefloor full. Our guests all commented on how brilliant the band were, and even now they're still talking about them! They are all lovely, fun people that are so invested in having a good time and performing a great set, and it really shows. We would 1000% (not a typo) recommend Relative Cool to anyone considering booking a band. We're hoping we can get someone else we know to book the band in the future, so we can dance with them all over again. Thanks so much for being a part of our day, and making it so incredible. You were amazing.
