Customer questions

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

We strive to ensure that our line up is consistent, but we occasionally deputise with friends from other bands when one of the line-up can't make it.

Do you have different line-up options?

We usually play our full electric set as a four piece; Vocal / Keys, Guitar, Bass and Drums. If you're looking for an acoustic act this can be tailored to suit - either as an acoustic duo (vocals and guitar), trio (adding percussion) or as the full band (acoustic guitar and bass).

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

If timings change, we'll do our best to accommodate you.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually take 30 minutes to set up and 30 minutes to sound check.

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

Our set list is designed to encompass a variety of songs from the last 40 years, but with enough notice we can squeeze in a request or two - dependent on the singing style.
