Do you have different line-up options?
Generally the band performs as a 13 piece big band. We can provide a small 5 piece line up and also bring in additional/different musicians to provide a soul/funk/disco addition to the Rat Pack/Swing standard set.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
The band is flexible within reason, and we will work with clients to provide the right bespoke performance for the needs of the event.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
iPod/background music is included within the price. A full DJ service can be provided for an additional fee.
How much time do you need to set up?
Minimum one hour. Ideally 1.5 hours. As soon as the PA is set up we can start to provide background music.
Can you roam around while you perform?
The lead singer can use a radio microphone in order to mingle with the audience. Otherwise, the band is positioned in one place.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Yes. Our set lists are tried and tested, but we will work with you to cater for your requirements.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Yes, all included. The set up with band requires a space that is roughly 5 metres wide and 4 metres deep.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If a song isn’t included in the set, then we can score it for the band and rehearse it. There is a fee of £50 per song.
