Customer questions

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. We work closely with a number of musicians, whom we know, and use when a band member is unavailable. We employ musicians based on skill, reliability and their ability to represent the fun and professional image we take pride in. You can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

The quintet is our standard line-up (male & female vocals, keys, electric guitar, bass, drums). We also offer line-ups ranging from our acoustic duo, up to our sextet (with saxophone).

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. As a standard, we'll provide pre-mixed (upbeat) background music before, between and after sets. We also offer the options to upgrade to a bespoke playlist for £45 (created for you, by us, before your event), or provide a DJ-style playlist (manned iPad for up to 2 hours) for £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

Once the equipment is loaded onto the stage/into the performing area, we'll require 1 hour to set up and soundcheck.

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

Your party, your music! The live sets are tailored to your preference.

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

Yes, we only require access to power (minimum of two plug sockets). We also provide two 30m cable reels. We usually require a minimum of 4m (across) by 3m (depth), and we are happy to adapt within' reason.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

As part of our standard service, we'll gladly learn a song request for your wedding or birthday party (this is a free service that we offer - we do not charge for it). If you would like us to learn an additional song, we'd be happy to. The additional cost is £15 per musician. Due to a high number of performances, a minimum of 4 weeks notice is required.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

A few of the key points of feedback that we often hear back from clients, and that we've noticed within' our reviews, are: 1) They love that we were able to get people of all ages dancing along 2) They love that they have some control in choosing the songs 3) They love our quick communication and responsiveness beforehand, and our professionalism on the day

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We've performed at many venues over the past few years. Here's a few venues we've performed at since August 2018: - The Shard, London - De Vere Wotton House, Dorking - Le Gothique, London - The Mermaid Theatre, London - Gorse Hill, Woking - Hilton Hotel, Reading - De Vere Horsley Estate, East Horsley - Harrow School, Harrow - Wiston's Music House, London

The Cheers were absolutely incredible. We had them at our wedding at Old Greens Barn in Newdigate and they just sounded amazing. They got everyone of all ages up on their feet and i think some of our guests didn't stop the whole time. The vocalist were brilliant and we were really amazed at how many comments we had from our guests about how superb the band was. I highly recommend going for the quintet set up so you get a mix of male and female vocals. The band has a great repertoire to choose from that appeals to all ages and they put together the most perfect set list of all our favourite songs and some other greats too. Ben the band manager was faultless, from start to finish he was just amazing. So easy to speak to and communicate with, he really was a dream. It is so nice to have a supplier that knows what they are doing, can be trusted and is just so effortless. We cannot rate him enough. Thank you to all of the Cheers for really making our day so so special. We can't recommend them more highly.

Highly recommended function band! We had these guys for our wedding a few weeks ago and they were great! The dance floor was packed all evening, even after we left! They did a cover of our first dance song and it was even better than we had hoped! Better than any cover on youtube! Ben is really helpful before the day sorting out logistics and song choices.
