What do your clients love most about your performances?
The lovely reviews left by our previous customers speak for themselves! Our clients love our authentic 100% live show, the very high standard of musicianship, our professional attitude, and the fact that we will go the extra mile to accommodate any requirements or alterations so that you have the most enjoyable possible experience.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Highlights include: • Connaught rooms London • Warner's holiday villages • Butlin holiday complexes • Wokingham festival • Rickmansworth festival • Wycombe festival • Ascot festival • Bracknell festival • Countless charity events, clubs, birthdays, weddings, and corporate events all around the country.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
The Foundations, Wilson Pickett, The Drifters, The Temptations, Otis Redding, James Brown, The Blues Brothers, and The Commitments to mention a few!
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Gigs at major holiday villages around the UK, Blotts Country Club in Nottingham, and The Connaught Rooms in London for a major charity event on behalf of London's black cab drivers.
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: • Noel - Lead Vocals • Richard - Lead Guitar & Backing Vocals • Adam - Bass Guitar & Backing Vocals • Andrew - Keyboards & Backing Vocals • Lee - Saxophones & Percussion & Backing Vocal • Keith - Drums and Percussion
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. We can accommodate unforeseen timing changes, even on the day of the event.
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. We can play music of our (or your) choice by prior arrangement during the interval between sets, and before and after the band play until the PA is dismantled.
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?
Yes, our PA and lighting system are included in your quote, and you can use our wireless microphone for speeches free of charge.
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, for example as the first dance at a wedding, we may be able to do it, if we are given sufficient notice.
