What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Headlining the Dome, Doncaster at a special awards competition for young musicians.
Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?
Yes, we almost always play shows with the same musicians. In the event of a band member falling ill last-minute we will have a technology system in place to replace that member of the band while the rest still play live. Our musicians are always striving for perfection so the quality can always be expected to be the highest level.
Do you have different line-up options?
Our line-up consists of : Vocalsx2, Guitarx2, Keys, Bass and Drums. Our acoustic line-up can alter depending on personal preferences.
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 after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £200
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?
Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 8m by 5m 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. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. Just let us know with at least a months notice before the day of the event.
