Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Yes. The videos represent the band in their true form and the singers always remain the same. If, for any extraordinary reason, a singer wasn't available due to illness close to the gig then we'd let you know beforehand - but it's never happened in 20 years!

Do you have different line-up options?

Our full line up is 4 musicians on stage and includes 2 singers, 2 guitars, keyboards, bass and drums (some do more than one thing!). As an additional booking, it's also possible to have just one or two of the musicians play earlier in the day - giving an additional solo or duo set. Emelia can also sing solo at wedding ceremonies.

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

The band is very flexible and the timings can usually change to suit you and your event. It's not been a problem in the past.

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

We can provide recorded music before, between and after the live sets, if required, for no extra cost, so long as the overall start and end times of the booking don't change.

How much time do you need to set up?

It usually takes about an hour to set up (unless there's lots of stairs and no lift!). As soon as the band is set up we can pop on some recorded music, if required.

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

We certainly don't mind you looking through the set list and selecting some of your favourites which we can certainly include.

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

We bring everything with us that's needed to perform including the PA and lighting. We just need a performance space of about 4 meters x 2 meters and access to a couple of plug sockets.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

With a few weeks notice (so that we can get together to rehearse it) we can certainly include any song requests. We usually charge £80 a song for this service.

Reviews

From customers:

Jenni C, 2 years ago

Feedback was terrific for you guys, and I have to say I totally enjoyed the music too. Jill, my MD, felt you were great and just what we wanted. The general consensus of opinion from the staff was that they had a great time, and I think the packed dance floor almost constantly reflected how popular your guys were. I do hope they enjoyed the buzz that was created within the room. Thank you once again for the total professionalism with which you worked with us, it was a pleasure.

Ben (, 2 years ago

The band were really excellent, they had people dancing from the first song right through to the end and I saw people running onto the dance floor for certain songs. At least two dozen people told me how great they were and how they were the best band they have seen at a wedding and I must say I agree. We’d be more than happy to recommend you for other gigs, hopefully I won’t need you for another wedding though!
