We are happy to consider client requests for inclusion in our set(s)
What do your clients love most about your performances?
We play a broad range of material from across the decades of 60s to early 2000s. Our songs are all popular and familiar tunes which appeal to a wide range of age-groups. We are very focussed on making our performance fun for everyone. Steve has a great personality and engages with the audience well.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Pubs, clubs, private parties, weddings, Christmas parties. We were successful in audition for the prestigious Glastonbudget Festival (postponed 2020 to 2021)
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-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is 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?
We have a lead singer/guitarist, a bassist/vocalist and a drummer.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional fee.
How much time do you need to set up?
We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event. ”
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 3m by 3m space to perform
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
