Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up is John on synths and Craig on vocals. However, we usually look for a couple of ladies from the party to help us out with the Human League songs if they feel comfortable doing it!

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. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100. It can be 80's themed or a varied era dance set.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up and sound check around 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 you roam around while you perform?

Not in the traditional sense but Craig, our singer will work the room!

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, any requested songs from the list can be played as encores if not in the set itself.

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

Lighting is included in your quote, as is PA if the event is in the North of England . Further afield, a PA must be provided. Please allow enough space for the band to perform, and ensure electric sockets are available.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Unfortunately not. We feel our set list encompasses the best of the 80's and has been crafted accordingly. Specific songs can always be added to our iPad playlist of course.

I had the pleasure of enlisting Rubix Cube as the entertainment for my 50th Birthday party which took place on a boat on the River Thames. I had 140 guests and I was absolutely delighted with Rubix Cube. They had everybody dancing and I am quite sure my party would not have been such a success had it not been for their fantastic performance. It provided a real trip down the memory lane of music I loved back in the 80’s. The band and their wives were just so friendly and helpful during the planning stages and I just hope I have another opportunity to use them again for a future party before my knees give in and I am rendered incapable of dancing to their 80’s tribute songs !

Nigel F, 3 years ago

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the performance at our charity dinner dance on Friday evening. The whole event was brilliant and the performance by Rubix Cube was a significant part of the success We found you through recommendation and we would be very happy to recommend you to anybody looking for a party band. Again thanks for a great night.
