Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

In short, yes! However, we would recommend the 8-piece as can be seen in our demo video as providing the best overall experience but we are very flexible and go out in smaller and larger outfits to fit any occasion.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

No problem. As we offer a bespoke service catering for any event in it's entirety, it is in our nature to be adaptable. If something looks like it needs to change, then don't hesitate to get straight in touch and we'll do our best to fit in with your needs.

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 can provide this for a small fee and also partner with professional DJs if you want the next level experience.

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 I pick the songs you play from the set list?

StraightFire plays seamless sets which flow in and out of huge hits through the set. These sets are heavily curated and we try to incorporate something for everyone based on our collective decades of experience of live performances - however, if you do have a special request, we will make sure to play it, just be sure to let us know in advance!

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

We do provide P.A as standard in our quote - it will be more than enough to cater for most events but would encourage contacting us about our premium P.A and lighting set up to really elevate the show to the next level and make sure it is a premium experience for your guests!

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We will take one request as part of our fee and make sure it is arranged into the set - for example we will learn any first dance free of charge. If you have more requests then let us know and we can take these on for a small fee to cover the arranging and rehearsal time.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Combine an infectious energy from a group of musicians who genuinely love playing with a seamless set that keeps the audience thrilled with massive tunes and some surprises and you get a recipe for a packed dance-floor. We pride ourselves on being easy to work with and punctual on the day to take any stress off of our usually very busy clients!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Festivals - CarFest (18,000 and 20,000 attendees), Birmingham Arts Festival. Venues - The Jam House, Ronnie Scotts, Cavern Club, Royal Albert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, NEC, Birmingham Town Hall NIA, The Arts Club, Club Med Val Thorens, Club Med Val D'Isere

Reviews

From customers:

50th C, 2 years ago

Great band. Booked for my wife's 50th party on a recommendation - played all of our requests and kept people dancing all night

Music A, 5 years ago

Booked StraightFire as a live backing band for our girlband on multiple gigs. The players are all next-level and really brought us on to the next level.
