Do you have different line-up options?
Yes. We mainly play as a trio which we find works well for people. We have a full sound but because we are 3 instead of 4 we can fit within more budgets. We are also able to offer quartet, duo and solo.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We are really easy going so just let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
How much time do you need to set up?
about half and hour
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes, you can choose which pieces you prefer, we can even take some requests if there is time or we can write the set list for you as we are experienced at setting the pace of events and are familiar with the repertoire.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes, as long as we can source the music and have time to rehearse it.
