Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard full-band lineup is a 4-piece and is: 2 lead vocalists, 2 guitars, 1 double bass, 1 cahon (percussion). We also can offer a trio format (the standard lineup minus a guitarist), and also a premium 5-piece format with saxophone.

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

We always try our best to be flexible with the client to make sure everything goes ahead smoothly for the event.

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

Absolutely, depending on timings we could offer this for £100 to £200.

How much time do you need to set up?

As we are a fully acoustic roaming band, very little time is needed! I'd say 15 minutes, if that. But, we also can offer the "plugged-in set" option through a PA without an issue.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes - we can perform acoustically, roaming around while we perform exept for our percussionist who is stationed on cahon (percussion box).

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 happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £50 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
