Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?


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

We will try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smooth as possible.

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

We are happy to plug a phone or laptop into our PA between sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

At least one hour.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Not really although our lead guitarist does have a habit of wandering off!

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

We will probably play all the songs as well as many more as our songs are over very quickly but feel free to suggest a song!

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


Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes but usually just one if it's from outside of the genre we play.

From customers:

Carol D, 2 years ago

Amazing set of guys and the crowd loved them. The swing dancers also thought they were amazing... I could listen to these guys over and over again. I certainly hope I get to see them again!! Just amazing!!!!

Louise P, 2 years ago

The best thing I did when organising my wedding was book the Hailbails! These guys are FANTASTIC. I'm an actress/singer and have performed in many professional 60s touring shows, so I needed a band who were the real deal. The Hailbails are JUST THAT! They captured the 50s and 60s beautifully, kept it young and fresh, played brilliantly and created the ideal atmosphere. Everyone was up dancing, from my 2 year old niece, to my 90 year old Grandma! And I (the Bride) did not leave the dancefloor! Thank you so much boys, you made our day a LOT of fun! Louise and Peter -x-
