The Pause's Reviews

From customers:

Charlie and Hannah, Thank you so much for giving us exactly what we wanted at our wedding and more! Without me even saying anything, one of the first songs you sang was my sister and brother-in-law's first dance so a very special song for us all (1000 years). I could've listened to you all day and the transitioning between acoustic and evening disco was just seamless. Thoroughly recommend The Pause for wedding entertainment or any function for that matter! Thanks again, hope to see you again. Steff and Rob xx

Thanks to Charlie & Hannah for performing during the drinks reception at our wedding! Really friendly people who chatted with guests and made everyone feel comfortable. We wanted a relaxed feel for our guests with background music whilst photos were being taken and guests were chatting. They performed for an hour and a half and played a variety of songs including requests from guests who all enjoyed the music. Would definitely recommend them for anyone looking for a laid back acoustic set for a wedding or similar occasion. Have also seen them perform in various pubs and can highly recommend for a good night out! Thanks again to both of you. Andy & Katie.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?


What if my timings change after I've booked you?

No problem, we try to be super flexible as we know how important your event is to you and it is just as important to us that you are happy with our element of the event. If you need us on site for longer than planned me may need to add to our fee slightly.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes, we have a computer with DJ software and lots of music to choose from.

How much time do you need to set up?

About 30 minutes depending on your venue layout.

Can you roam around while you perform?

No sorry, and we only play amplified through a PA system.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Sure :)

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

Oh yes yes yes...

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yep, this is an extra service we offer. (See pricing). You will also get a recording to keep of your chosen song. We ask for as much notice as possible if you require this service as we do have a waiting list most of the time.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our chemistry and synergy.
