Customer questions

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

Yes, although we have a number of rehearsed deps at the same standard if not at times better, who can step in if any of the musicians are already booked or pulled away due to unforeseen circumstances. The important thing to remember is that the professional musicians you have will be there to give you a musical experience of the highest quality.

Do you have different line-up options?

We have a solo to 5 piece line up options with a fantastic selection of modern and traditional jazz masterpieces. A 5 piece option will come with a dedicated sound engineer.

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

We’ll always be happy to accommodate your changes to the best of our abilities, if timings do change in the run up to your event, please give us as much notice as possible.

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

Absolutely, we have a dedicated sound engineer/ DJ for each event with a jazz quintet, able to provide music before and in between sets, as well music after sets. If you would like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100, which we can factor in to the overall price.

How much time do you need to set up?

This will vary according to size of ensemble - but anywhere from 30 mins to an hour or so.

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

Our set lists have been perfected and crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to get guests dancing and have an amazing time. However we’re always happy to chat through repertoire and make sure we find what works for your event.

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

Absolutely, no need to hire any equipment yourself, it’s all included in the price.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

It would be a privilege for us to perform a special song or your ‘first dance’ song if your event is a wedding - just give us as much notice as possible so we can prepare to deliver the best performance for you.

Reviews

From customers:

Susan O, 3 years ago

They were absolutely fantastic. The music went down really well, it created a great ambiance and received great feedback. They were also highly professional and responsive and a pleasure to work with.”

Jemima, 3 years ago

This amazing trio played for our ‘Christmas with Bentley’ event in December. They went down a treat with the guest, one man (who in fact, used to be an professional opera singer), joined in with them. The 3-piece band have their own fantastic, unique style in music. They were great to work with and exceeded the brief we gave them. We would definitely use them again for future events.”
