What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

99% of the time the singer in our videos will be the one who performs at your event. We also try to ensure that the other musicians who are in our photos are always available too. We do have some musicians that can cover for when anyone from our usual line up is on holiday or sick.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line up is as follows: Male Lead singer/Acoustic guitar, Lead Guitarist/BV's Bass Guitartist/BV's Drummer. We do have an option of adding a keyboard player or female vocalist if they are available.

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

We understand timings on the day can change slightly and we are very flexible to accommodate this. As long as the arranged finish time is stuck to we are always happy to start a bit earlier or later than originally agreed.

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

Yes we can provide a Virtual DJ set that is an iPad connected to our PA system. This saves you having to pay extra money for a DJ. If you have your own party playlist on a device we are more than happy to connect it up to our PA system.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually require 1 hour to set up depending on loading facilities. If these are a bit of a distance from where the setup area is it could take a bit longer. Virtual DJ service can be played as soon as our soundcheck is done.

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

We generally choose the setlist ourselves and this can change slightly as the event progresses. Sometimes it can be difficult to judge what will go down well until we start performing. However, we are happy to include suggestions from our setlist that you like.

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

Yes. All the equipment, PA, Lighting and Backline is included in the quote. We require a minimum of 5mx4m space to set up in.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

As long as the event is not at short notice we are happy to learn up to 3 requests. Obviously, these might be slightly different arrangements to the original and in different keys to suit the singer's voice and band instrumentation.

Having met the Fantastic Elastic Band during their time performing at Silverstone, we knew that they were the perfect choice for our Wedding. From start to finish the band gauge the audience and give it their all. We have seen many live acts but these guys are on another level. Professional, exceptional and fun. No hesitation to book again and look forward to seeing them perform again very soon. All the best, Claire
