What do your clients love most about your performances?
How engaging we are being such a small group. How our sound is able to fill a church/room. Our professionalism and friendliness. Our connection as a group.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Rudding Park Wharfdale Grange St Edmundsbury Cathedral Many independent coffee shops/bars
Do you have different line-up options?
We primarily perform as 1 per part however if you specifically require music that is more than these forces we can organise additional singers or an equal standard.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Not a problem, just discuss this with us well in advance and we can then look into whether we need more or less music for the new timings.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
How much time do you need to set up?
We don't require any time to set up PA as we don't use any, however we like to rehearse in the venue for a minima of 45 minutes on the day of the event, to get an idea of the acoustic we are working with.
Can you roam around while you perform?
If required however this is not ideal in terms of maintaining a good vocal balance.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Yes of course. We are also happy to discuss specific requests via email/phone prior to the event.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
We don't require any of this equipment.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Yes absolutely, provided that this requests are made when first enquiring so we can ensure that we have time to rehearse new repertoire thoroughly.
