Don’t look back in anger
Half the world away
When the sun goes down
Bet you look good on the dancefloor
Why’d you only call me when you’re high
I wanna be adored
Dancing in the moonlight
She moves in her own way
Are you gonna be my girl
Not nineteen forever
Kings of Leon:
Sex on fire
All the small things
In the morning
Take me out
Dreaming of you
Locked out of heaven
I don’t like it I love it
70’S & 80’S
Summer of 69
This charming man
Should I stay or should I go
Boys are back in town
50’S & 60’S
You really got me
All my loving
The Rolling Stones:
Everybody needs somebody
Ring of fire
Brown eyed girl
Sitting on the dock of the bay
I feel good
Jonny B Goode
It’s coming home
Come on England
World in Motion
Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?
Most likely. We try and make sure the exact line up that is seen on the video will be at your venue, but sometimes one of us my be unavailable or falls ill. In this scenario, we will hire one of our pre-auditioned dep musicians, but don't worry, we ensure that all of our deps are of the highest quality, so that it doesn't affect our performance.
Do you have different line-up options?
We do. As well as our trio (Guitar, Bass, Drums, 3 Vocals), we offer an acoustic duo consisting of Acoustic Guitar, Cajon, and 2 vocals. We play the same repertoire and is a great option for events in which space may be an issue.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We try to be as flexible as possible to help you run your event as smoothly as you can. If timings change in the run up to the event just let us know.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes we can. We will put music on slightly before and between our sets free of charge. Another popular request is a DJ service that runs after our set has finished so that your guests can keep their spirits up until the end of your event! We provide this service for an additional £100/hr.
How much time do you need to set up?
We can set up in 60 minutes, but without rushing (which is always less stressed) we can take up to 90 minutes. As stated before, if you would like us to play music before our set, we can do this as soon as our PA system is set up free of charge.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Absolutely. We have a large set list that covers a range of artists and we're happy for you to omit any songs you really don't like, and add up to 5 songs you would love us to play (event has to be over 4 months away from booking to ensure adequate rehearsal time).
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Our PA system is included in our quote. Hire of lighting will be an additional £50 for the evening
Can you learn song requests before the event?
We can take up to 5 song requests if the event is more than 4 months away (at time of booking). Less than that, we can take 2 song requests. All song requests are free of charge.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
The set! There were so many great bands that had their peak in the 90s/00s and that churned out some great music. Every time we play, wether it's our duo or our trio, the crowd never ever fails to sing along at full volume.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon, Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, The Killers
