Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our energy and harmonies, we always put our own slant on songs.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We’ve been pro musicians for quite a few years and play in a full wedding band as well as a tribute band. We’ve played The Manchester Academy, The Troubadour, we’re booked in to play Spike Island and have probably played most of the wedding venues in Scotland

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

It’s all about the performances with me, Joe Cocker at Woodstock is probably my all time favourite

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

Madchester at Bowlers arena 3 times (6000 people), we’re booked for Spike Island (28,000 people). John Hartson’s annual charity ball to name a few.

Do you have different line-up options?


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

We are very relaxed with timings so don’t worry about that

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

Of course

How much time do you need to set up?

We like 1 hour to set up to get everything sounding great

Can you roam around while you perform?

Unfortunately we can only do this if we are not amplified

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

You can tell us what not to play and make a few requests (we always learn special ceremony songs and firs dances). We always read the room and don’t use a set list, we play what the audience are reacting to.

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

Everything is included, no hidden extras

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We can learn a couple of requests, yes

We had the acoustic duo Laurie and Patrick perform at the drinks reception at our wedding in Edinburgh last weekend. Laurie and Patrick were very professional from the outset, looked great and played brilliantly! They read the crowd well, choosing their playlist dependant on response. We got lots of compliments from our guests and I'm just trying to come up with another excuse for a party so I can get them back to perform!
