Customer questions

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. We do have pre-audititioned '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?

Our line-up is as follows: Sax/Clarinet, (Vocals if required), Guitar, Double Bass and Drums. We can also extend the band with a trumpet and piano.

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 fee,

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance.

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?

Our PA and lighting system is included in the quote. We usually require a minimum of 3 meters by 3 meter space to perform.

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 £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

Hi Wendy, How special you made our celebratory party ! A big thank you to you and your merry band of musicians. You so lifted the spirit of everyone, and Graham was delighted with your rendering of ‘’ the girl of Ipanema ‘’ . Please convey our thanks to all involved. One or two people asked who played and we shall certainly be enthusiastic in recommending you . Take care and I hope you will continue to have a busy season. All the best from us both , Marjolijn.

Hello Wendy, Thank you so much for your wonderful performance at our Gatsby party - you were fabulous and we had so many comments about the band and you looked great in your costumes! Had a lot of people asking for your details so i shall pass them on. Look forward to seeing and hearing you play again. Best regards, Silvia x
