Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Yes, the singer/singers will be as seen in the videos. If we know the singer may be unavailable we will let you know before booking us.

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes. We vary from a duo to a full 8 piece, as in the video. Our most common line up is as a 5 piece with Female lead vocals, guitar, bass, keys and drums. We are able to add members as you wish.

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

Timings are easily adjusted and quite often never pan out the way you intended. we are flexible and happy to adjust accordingly.

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

Yes. we provide music throughout the event. We try and cater to your taste so may ask if you have any specific genre's/artists or songs you'd like to hear.

How much time do you need to set up?

Ideally we like to have at least 60 - 90 minutes to set up with plenty of time to relax a little, have music playing for your guests etc before we start our live sets.

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

You can pick songs you'd like to hear from our set, yes.

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

All of our quotes include full PA, Lighting and DJ music until 12 midnight. Late finishes may have a small fee.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We are happy to learn requests/first dances. We would happily learn up to 3 songs if we don't already know them. Please give us a couple of weeks notice if you would like anything specific and not already in our set.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We would probably say our song choices and energy. We try to play songs that we love to hear ourselves. Songs that mean something to us. That seems to come across when we play them live. If you love the song, you will always play it with passion, which is important when performing.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have played many, many venues up and down the country. From Castles, to corporate buildings, outside stages to upstairs at the Dog and Duck... We've played them all.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Stevie Wonder, MJ, Prince, Chic, Aretha Franklin, Motown, Soul, Disco... anything that has stood the test of time, we're all about that!

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

We've played for a few big companies such as Volkswagon, Ted Baker and The Teenage Cancer trust. Katie and Phil played as a duo at a wedding featured in Hello magazine, as well as Katie being on the X factor in 2015.

The Alleycatz stepped in last minute after our previous wedding band cancelled 2 months before our wedding. Phil was incredibly friendly, laid back and made the whole thing feel far less stressful! The band are incredible musicians and are all talented in their own right. They played our first dance 'Do I love you? Indeed I do' followed by 'Higher and Higher' and were able to make these up tempo songs fit perfectly for our first dance. Throughout the night, they played classic tunes and kept the dance floor alive! I will be on the look out for this band playing other gigs just so we can both go and see them again. I would recommend them for any event, for all generations as all of our wedding guests loved the band! Thank you again for making our first dance and evening of music so special. Jade and Rob x

You can stop looking now, because the Alleycatz are the band you want. I was fortunate enough to have these guys perform at my 21st Birthday party and they were brilliant. Not only are they incredible musicians and singers who played the perfect set, but the energy that they brought had all of my mates on their feet dancing and singing along for the whole night. On top of this they made me feel special on my big day making sure I truly had the very best night possible. I cannot thank these guys enough for the night they gave us and I couldn't recommend them more. Professional and efficient from the outset with rapid, helpful and patient responses and a truly brilliant band who clearly enjoy playing as much as you will enjoy dancing and singing along. Thank you guys, 10/10! Sam (21) xx

What a really awesome band who we have used for years for all our company events. Great selection of songs for everyone to enjoy and have a sign-a-long and a dance to. What a great bunch of talented people who really get involved and have a fun time at any of our events. If you’re thinking of having any kind of event, you need the Alleycatz. I would highly recommend them to anyone having a small gathering or a massive bash! 10/10 great band!”

Flori B, 2 years ago

Fantastic band! Booked them for my 30th birthday and they played everything I wanted to hear! They even got my husband on stage to sing as a surprise! Would highly reccommend to anyone.
