Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We think they love our audience-interaction skills. Our lead vocalist-guitarist always has at least a couple of moments when he gets into the crowd and gets everyone involved. It's usually towards the end of the night and everyone is really keen for it!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed at over 223 venues over the years. Multiple times in many of those venues. Far too many to list here, but some of them include Gildings Barn, Tylney Hall, Wotton House, Narborough Hall Gardens, Canada Lake & Lodge, Audleys Wood Hotel, Burley Manor, Bush Hall, Islington Assembly Hall, Essendon Country Club & Brighton Marina.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We love our indie music. The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Oasis, Blur, Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys. And of course we take lots of inspiration from great pop artists, like The Beatles, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Golly gosh, our band members have played for and with Sir Paul McCartney, Nile Rodgers, Flea, performed on Channel 4 supporting Pixie Lott, played at the famous Roundhouse, toured internationally, played at Download, Bloodstock Open Air, Bestival and Isle of Wight festivals, and play at Glastonbury every year.

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-auditioned '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: Lead Male Vocals & Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass, Drums and Backing Vocals. We can add members if you've got something in particular in mind.

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 for before, in-between and after live sets until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £278.

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?

Yes! We've got over 100 songs you can pick from. :)

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

Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 3m by 4m 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, so please don't hesitate to ask! If there is a special song you'd like us to learn, we are more than happy to do this for you, free of charge. For every additional 'off-the-menu' song there is a fee of £50 to take into account rehearsal times etc.

We recently had Monstars perform at our wedding and were blown away by how brilliant they were. The band's entire performance was energetic, fun, and had people of all ages dancing from the moment they started to the moment they finished at the end of the night (to chants from our guests of "One more song!"). A great song selection and some brilliant moments, including Adam the singer coming onto the dance floor for some of the performances (which everyone loved). All our guests have since said how fantastic they were. We would book them again in a heartbeat!

The band was absolutely brilliant and really made the evening reception. Henry was so charismatic and interacted with the guests so well. They learnt and performed our first dance song, which was wonderful. The variety of songs was brilliant. My guests were hounding them for more when they finished!!
