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-auditioned “dep” musicians available in case a band member falls ill or us 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?

Our line up is as follows: Drums Bass + backing vocals Lead guitar + backing vocals Rhythm guitar + lead vocals

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?

Absolutely! This is offered as one of our package deal options!

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually require about 1 to 1.5 hours before performance time.

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

Of course! We recommend you pick up to 20 songs and let us do the rest! We are very experienced at reading what a crowd wants to hear to keep them on the dance floor.

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

All equipment is included in all our package deals.

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. That being said we will learn a max of 2 songs for free as long as they are given to us at least 2 weeks before the performance.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We pride our selves on our energetic and entirely live performance.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

From starting off playing pubs and clubs in 2004 to weddings, function and corporate events in the present day. It’s fair to say we’ve played our fair share of venues. Ranging from The Sage Gateshead to the many castles of the North East.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

The Beatles The Smiths Queen Red Hot Chili Peppers Blink 182 Foo Fighters
