What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival was a particular highlight, but every gig is special in its own way.
Do you have different line-up options?
We work as a duet, a trio, a quartet and sometimes a larger group with added musicians.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We will try to be as flexible as possible. We understand that sometimes things change even at the last minute.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
A simple iPod playlist could be used before and between sets. Do liaise with us to discuss your requirements. Since we are primarily an acoustic group we would normally use PA that is available at the venue for this service.
How much time do you need to set up?
1 hour, although we can be ready in less time if this is inconvenient.
Can you roam around while you perform?
Yes we can.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Please do talk to us about what music you would like and together we can craft a fantastic set list.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Yes, we will need a space allocated for us to perform in.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Yes we can, as long as there is sufficient notice. Pieces requiring special arrangement and/or rehearsal carry a fee of £30.
