Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our energy and professionalism... We're not your average wedding/function band musicians. We have a wealth of professional experience and have played with and supported acts like Van Morrison, James Arthur, Shirley Bassey, Joss Stone, Aretha Franklin and many more. Despite being life long pro musicians we all still LOVE what we do and we feel that shows...

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

As a band we play regularly on the main stage, main slot at The Ned Central London, Ronnie Scotts, Soho House, Southbank Centre and many more. Individually we have had the honour of playing at: The O2, Wembley, Hollywood Bowl, New York Jazz Fest, Main stage Glastonbury, London Palladium and Earls Court Arena to name a few.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We all collectively love old school funk and soul so probably a combo of Aretha Franklin, James brown and a more modern sprinkle of Jamiroquai. However, we can play anything...

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

We have an upcoming performance at an awards ceremony at The O2. We also play the main stage at The Ned Central London regularly as a 5 piece jazz band, a trio and a duo having regular residency appearances there.

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes - Acoustic duo, trio and quartet plus a range of electric options

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

We can be flexible within reasonable time frames so just give us a ring :)

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

Yes, we can do that. Happy to provide a playlist service in between live sets for free. Anything after is chargeable so please ask. May be a better option to book a manned DJ service to take over from us.

How much time do you need to set up?

90 mins from arrival to start to load in setup and sound check for an average sized band (duo to 6 piece). Anything bigger and I allow 2 hours.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes, for acoustic options we can do this. Please enquire.

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

We have specific set lists for specific line-ups, so not all of the songs shown on the repertoire will be available for your chosen lineup. Bands will always try to tailor where possible if you give a list or 'preferred' artists and genres but due to the amount of gigs we do we have to keep requests and prepping music outside of paid time to a minimum.

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

Yes. PA - 2 x 2000w EV speakers. 1 x 1000w Bass Bin. 4 x Lighting Rigs. All cables, bells and whistles!

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Song requests learned outside of paid time are chargeable. A first dance is included for free if the event is a wedding. But for anything else, please enquire.

Temple played an acoustic duo at our wedding last week. We were so pleased with the performance, exactly what we were after, chilled yet upbeat at the same time. Wendy was great with communication throughout from enquiry to the big day and we would highly recommend. Thank you both so much for being part of our special day!

Oh my goodness, what a night! We booked Temple's 6 piece for our wedding and we have ZERO regrets. Wendy and the band knocked it out the park with the perfect selection of songs and incredible energy. Us and our guests had the best night, the room felt electric. We were blown away with the musicianship and breadth of song choices. Words can't express the fun we had, we only wish we had some video footage of the dancing! It was an unbelievable time we and our guests will never forget, thank you so so much.

Temple were amazing! We booked the trio lineup for our wedding and it was simply stunning, Wendy, drummer Danny and guitarist Kevin were super kind, very professional and fantastic live musicians. They played two sets, a more relaxed one towards the end of our dinner and a more upbeat second set afterwards that got everyone dancing, they created such a great vibe, everybody loved them and it was so much better than any DJ - nothing beats live music! I would alway book them again for any type of private or corporate event!! X

I booked these guys (a 6 piece band with sax) for my daughters 30th birthday party and we were absolutely blown away. From start to finish they were professional, lovely and as for the live music... it was second to none. All our family and friends were asking about them for future bookings and their performance really made our evening a memorable one. Thank you Temple!!! x
