Require announcements? No problem! Want to play your own music between sets? No problem!. We do everything we can to make your day extra special with a ‘can do’ attitude. OUTDOOR...UNPLUGGED? Do you want to take advantage of the weather or just want a stripped down acoustic set? No problem, we have a small charming gazebo that we can put up whilst we entertain your guests outside. We also have a range of acoustic instruments to perform unplugged in a variety of situations. We really want to make this as easy for you as possible so are happy to talk through any queries you may have and hopefully get your wonderful day secured in our diary! COMPACT, TRUSTED AND READY FOR ACTION Struggling for space? Not a problem we are pretty compact and can fit into a space of 2m by 2m. We use a compact Yamaha Stagepass 500 P.A. system which is fully self contained and all our equipment has been shrunk down to make it as compact as possible. All Laura needs is her trusty SM58 microphone and a mic stand. Luke uses a small nano+ pedalboard and Fender Blues Junior amp to keep things as compact as possible on the guitar side. We even use a Cajon for our stompbox instead of a bass drum so that we are as compact as possible! Whilst we are compact we definitely do not skimp on quality, all our equipment is from tried and tested brands such as Fender, Shure, Boss and Yamaha that are robust and built for full time professional musicians like ourselves. BE SURE WE ARE INSURED Most venues in this day and age will expect that the musical act you book is fully insured and all equipment has been tested. We’ve got you covered with public liability insurance up to £2 million pounds covered by Hiscox, also all of our equipment is Portable Appliance Tested. We also have membership with the Musicians Union, which is the largest trade union of its type for musicians in the UK, this sets out rules and standards which we abide to as professional musicians so you know you are in expert hands. SO, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Once booked we will take care of the rest! Contact us now to get the ball rolling, we promise you will not be disappointed with our service.

Wow! What an amazing Duo. Awesome music and vocals that gets the dance floor filled and pumping. We had a gathering at our home in Wiltshire for a 40th Party. The Love Rats Duo were professional, organised, very friendly and relaxed. An amazing time was had by all with a great collection of tracks that had everyone on the move. We would love to have them return!
