Which artists have you been most influenced by?

From Aretha to Stevie, Marvin to Mavis and Dusty to Amy, the grooves keep on coming to keep the dance floor full and the tippy toes tapping!

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.

Our line up is as follows: Vocals, Keys, Guitar, Bass & Drums.

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 a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like to use our PA after the final set any time after midnight, we provide this for an additional £100.

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.

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.

We just wanted to send a message of thanks to you all for your incredible performance on Saturday. We could not have hoped for better and we have received so many positive comments about you. Your cover of Ellie Goulding’s ‘How long will I love you’ was absolutely superb and was perfect for our first dance. We really hope we can find a video of it! We also appreciate that you played our special request of ‘I’m still standing
