Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?
We have 3 singers available to us and depending on the line up you book, these will be the ones performing for you. Only in unusual circumstances such as illness would we be forced to change the line-up. We would however contact you and make you aware of this fact.
Do you have different line-up options?
Yes. We can supply a scaled down version for smaller venues. This is an 8 piece line-up but does not have the impact or full sound of the 12 piece.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We try to be as flexible as possible and if you can give us notice we will endeavour to fit in with you.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes, we can play music through our P.A. system between our sets.
How much time do you need to set up?
Generally we require 1.5 hours before performance to set up and sound check.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Yes. We are happy for you to pick or suggest songs, however we are good at picking songs and gauging the mood.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
P.A. is included in the cost. We can hire lighting in if you can't.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Depending on the song and its suitability we can learn other repertoire. There will be a minimum charge of £50 to have the song arranged for the band.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Our clients love our authenticity and attention to period detail. Audiences also love the high energy fun that the band produces!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Devizes Corn Exchange, Burgh Island Hotel, Bournemouth Pavilion, Bournemouth Pier, Royal Bath Hotel, Miramar Hotel, Marsham Court Hotel, The Shelley Theatre, Stag Theatre Sevenoaks and many more.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Jack Hylton, Harry Roy, Cab Calloway, Temperance Seven,
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
For us the most enjoyable gigs so far was at the fabulous Art Deco Hotel on Burgh Island. This has been the back drop for episodes of Poirot and sums up what the Red Fez Orchestra is about.
