What do your clients love most about your performances?
The emotionally charged performances and colourful repertoire.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Weddings, amusement centres, private and birthday parties, dinners, barbeque parties, retail shop openings, international music festivals, summer festivals with large outdoor stages, restaurants, hotels, corporate events, recording and TV studios, The House of Parliament, Charity events...
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Too many to mention but at the end we try to be true to our self and play our own music with our own sound.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Probably with Lucy Layton the Parliament Westminster, the Charity Siria Relief event at the Shard, the Tamworth Country music festival in Australia. Worth to mention also the Country Christmas Festival in Pordenone, Italy and the music festival in Maui, Hawaii US with the band Carpool to Nashville.
Do you have different line-up options?
Our line-up is as follows: Violin (acoustic or electric), Guitar (acoustic or electric) with a stompbox to keep the rhythm and backing tracks. If required we have a trio option with a female or male singer. We can provide our own PA with two acoustic amps and a mic on the stand.
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.
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 you roam around while you perform?
Normally when playing with the electric amplification our roaming is limited due to the cables length. If we play with acoustic instruments we can move around freely but the sound is not amplified.
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, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Our PA system is included in your quote however we really welcome stages where the house PA is already in place. We usually require a minimum of 3 by 2 meters of space to perform close to a power socket. We also have two acoustic amps powered by a battery with no mains power required for outdoor performances.
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. We would be happy to discuss in advance the song choice.
