around 200 songs incl blues, latin, contemporary jazz (Caro Emerald, Norah Jones etc.) and classic pop songs (+ our own originals)
Do you have different line-up options?
We play mostly as a duo, (vocals / keys) but for parties / functions on the Isle of Wight we can add drummer and sax player if required.
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?
We usually play our own tracks from an mp3 player during our interval, (if this suits the Client) .
How much time do you need to set up?
Usually around 45 mins.
Can you roam around while you perform?
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Our set lists are crafted from many performances and learning what works well in the situation concerned. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what will suit your event.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Our PA and decorative lighting is included in your quote. If indoors during hours of darkness we will need our space to be sufficiently well - lit for us to perform. When playing as a duo, we usually require a minimum of 8' by 6' space to perform.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Certainly, providing sufficient time given (at least 3 - 4 weeks) and it's only one or two songs that are adaptable for our playing - style.
