What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
We treat every performance as the most high profile gig! We have played at castles, private houses, cinema events, outdoor markets, foodie spots - you name it, we did it and loved it!

Our set-up takes 30 mins, where we unload, set-up our equipment and do a soundcheck.
Can you roam around while you perform?
Yes - we would slightly change our setup using a regular acoustic guitar but apart for this we could arrange for this option.
