Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our clients always comment on our High Energy Performance, Passion and Slickness! They love the Lead Vocalist’s liveliness, she has such drive and stage presence; dancing the whole night long! The passion from the band oozes from the stage, it feels like the songs are their own! The band themselves are incredibly tight, showing off their own talents!

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 on the night. However since we are a 'Collective' we have 8 members in the band, and brilliant 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level!

Do you have different line-up options?

Being a Collective of 8 Musicians means we offer many different line-up options! Our standard line up is our 5 Piece: 2 Vocals, Guitar, Bass and Drums Our 6 Piece adds Keys Our 4 Piece has 1 Vocal We also offer Acoustic Solo, Duo and Trio options as well

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. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 2 hours before the performance time, depending on the kind of event. As soon as our PA is set up we can start playing our playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance! You can of course tailor the playlist and suggest as many songs as you like!

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely more than happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event, as we have so many songs in our repertoire to choose from!

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

Yes of course, We supply all of our own PAT tested equipment! Outdoor Festival Style performances are also something we can offer for our Solo and Duo options, where we have portable equipment (meaning electricity isn't required).

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes of course, We currently offer this service for free! However if there is a large number of personalised songs required we may have to add a small additional charge to take into account rehearsal times etc.
