Do you have different line-up options?
No. We work as a Duo only.
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?
We bring an MP3 player to play background music before we start and between sets. We do not offer a DJ service, however.
How much time do you need to set up?
We usually set up about 1.1/2 to 2 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can put on background music to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance.
Can you roam around while you perform?
No. Once our instruments and PA are set up we are static.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best for events requiring our style of easy listening background music. We feel confident that we play music to appeal to a wide range of people.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Yes. We do not use lights/lasers/smoke machines.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If a song isn't included in our set list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn and it fits with our style of music, we would be happy to discuss this with you. There would be an extra charge for this service to take into account rehearsal times, sheet music etc.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
We are classy and professional. Our music is easy on the ear and appeals to a wide range of people.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Thoresby Hall [Stately Home Hotel] - every Tuesday in the historic Blue Room. Bodelwyddan Castle. Littlecote House. Nidd Hall. Granada TV studios Manchester and ITV studios Leeds. Baldwins Omega Various venues for private events, too many to list.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Susie - Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughan. Andy - Ben Webster, Stan Getz, Ian Paice, Stewart Copeland.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Granada TV's Coronation Street 50th Anniversary party after their iconic Live episode at the Cast & Crew party. Also we have been opening act for National Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, Jimmy, Jay & Merrill Osmond, Ken Dodd, Jason Donovan, Lulu, Lance Ellington, Billy Ocean and Toyah.
