Customer questions

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

I try to be as flexible as possible as a solo musician and will tailor to your needs as appropriate

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

I can provide our speakers for use, but always ask the booking party to supply music as it will fit to their taste

How much time do you need to set up?

Minimum of 45 mins but preferably 60 mins

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

We are a bit different to the usual function bands and have a unique playing style where we swap around the lead vocalist and instruments, we also look at the vibes at the gig and age groups to determine the set off the cuff, so we usually have most control over the set list.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

We can bring the full PA system with everything if needed

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

We usually only do this for the higher paid gigs like weddings

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We are unique and switch instruments and lead vocalist which everyone comments on and enjoys as it keeps everyone really entertained

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Guildhall Plymouth Guildhall Cheltenham Looe Fest Tunes in dunes Leopallooza Drakes HMS The Hoe, Plymouth B Bar Theatre many more

Reviews

From customers:

BBC S, 2 years ago

Blown away by their performance on stage at BBC Takeover at UPSU. I love how they captured their fun live energy in their recordings. They always post really good videos. You would've seen them around Plymouth, and the south west - They are brilliant.

Thank you so much for providing such good music at our wedding reception. Everyone was full of compliments about our band choice and you managed to get everyone up and dancing; the young and slightly less young! They were particularly impressed with your multitalented switch-ups, some even mid-medley, and left us all buzzing with the Thunderstruck Mash Up! The variety of songs that you played kept everyone happy even had the grandparents tapping their toes at the bar! We really appreciate you learning our first dance song and a couple of other favourites of ours. Thank you for being easy to correspond with and our guests mentioned how friendly and open you were on the night! We hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we enjoyed your music, we are sure to pop along to your future gigs!
