Customer questions

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

99.9% of the time. We haven't had a situation where the singer or any other member can't perform an event. However, if something was to happen, we have a roster of high-quality 'dep' musicians that can fill in at a moment's notice.

Do you have different line-up options?

We almost always play as a 5-piece (guitar, bass, drum, saxophone, and trumpet). We can add a female singer, keyboard player, or extra brass for £250 per player.

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

We are flexible on the evening. We charge an extra £150 an hour for anytime before 6pm or after midnight.

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

Yes we provide this for free until midnight.

How much time do you need to set up?

We set up in 1 hour. This is only possible if we have the room to ourselves. If there are guests in the room, it could take longer.

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.

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


Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, we're happy to learn 1 song for free. This covers first dance songs or just one of your favourites.

Dear Groovy Cats, What can I say? You did Pudsey proud. You‘re a lovely bunch of chaps who transformed our BBC outside broadcast and really brought the party to life. Thank you again for your commitment and sense of fun. And you looked damn cool while doing it. Thank you, if I ever get married again I am booking you. (Just don’t tell my wife!!)Tom Ingall BBC Look North

Thank you all for a great night last night. The guests all had a great time. You even got one of our farmer friends singing and dancing, something which his family had never witnessed. He sent me a message this morning saying he hadn’t wanted the evening to end. The neighbours tell me it should be an annual event!
