Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients tend to enjoy the fact that, because we enjoy such wide range of music, we're able to cover whatever their wants and needs. We're happy to tailor our energy to an occasion, be it upbeat party vibes, or a more mellow, singer-songwriter aesthetic (think Sofar Sounds).

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed at notable hotels, such as The Hard Rock Hotel and The Royal Lancaster Hotel, as well as local venues to us.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Honestly, this is such a wide range. Both Andrew and Henry grew up largely on pop, soul, rock and funk music. Henry is also a jazz musician, enjoying fusion from time to time, and David (trio option) is also a composer and arranger in the classical realm. So anything, from Stevie Wonder to Miles Davis, Jessie J and beyond!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

We're pretty new as a duo/trio, so for now as an outfit that would be the Retail Awards at The Royal Lancaster, but as individuals, Andrew has played the Royal Albert Hall, and Henry has worked session bass with Mike Stock; part of the most successful production team of all time! David has composed, arranged and edited for several high profile TV shows.

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes, we offer a duo and trio set up.

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

Yes, no problem at all!

How much time do you need to set up?

we usually set up a minimum of 1.5-2 hours before, allowing us time to perform a sound check. We are happy to provide a playlist service before we begin, and during sets.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes, we have wireless available, so we can roam.

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

Of course! We have a set list that's curated from many shows, ensuring the best possible time for people, but we're happy to hear suggestions, if suitable.

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


Can you learn song requests before the event?

Of course! Just ask!
