Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

We are an acoustic duo made up of Alicia (Vocals) and Steve (Guitar). However, we do have different instrumentation options available! Depending on your set choice, we can incorporate a range of instruments including Alto Sax, Electric Guitar, and Ukulele to become more than your average acoustic duo.

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

We will always try to accommodate any changes. All we ask is sufficient notice for planning ahead to make your event run as smoothly as possible!

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

Certainly! We offer a free of charge playlist service via our PA during our breaks and prior to our sets. If needed after our set time, we charge a small additional fee.

How much time do you need to set up?

Not long at all! Depending on our set up, it averages about 30mins. Fully acoustic gigs set up takes 10 mins. Whilst setting up, we are happy to provide a free playlist/DJ service.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes! We can do a fully acoustic roaming set.

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

Yes! We have amassed a full range of songs and genres, adding new songs all the time. The set up you'd like (multiple instruments or fully acoustic) may have some effect on the song choice due to our arrangements/use of instruments, but we will chat this through with you to make sure everything suits your event perfectly.

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

Yes! Our PA is included in our quote. We don't take up a lot of room, but let us know the performance space dimensions as our set up may vary depending on size.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes! Aisle walk and first dance requests are included in our price.

From customers:

Rachael, 1 year ago

Alicia & Steve sounded amazing - everyone was up all night dancing and singing along. Thank you for making our party the perfect evening!

Rebecca, 1 year ago

We booked Steve & Alicia for our wedding breakfast and aisle walk - they were fantastic!! The ambience was just what we were looking for, and they were top pros, arriving early and making sure everything was ready with plenty of time and easing my mind on the day!
