Do you have different line-up options?
Our standard line up includes the 3 ladies performing with bespoke backing tracks which are operated by our sound engineer. For an exciting live look and sound, our Rockafellas (3pc brass & keys) perform over our bespoke backline tracks for a big band sound at a fraction of the cost! Our final line up is a completely live 6pc backing band for extra impact!
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We will ask you to confirm the overall event times when issuing our contract, but we do understand you may not be ready to commit to our specific set times at that point, so don't worry, we can discuss this bit after. Things can sometimes run a little late during the event too, but rest assured we will be as flexible as possible to help things run smoothly.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
We supply your choice of iPod music during our break for no extra charge. If you would like our 'virtual DJ' service to play out till the end of your event, we supply this for an additional £150.
How much time do you need to set up?
We ideally like between 1 and 1.5hrs to set up and sound check in full. If you have a tight room turnaround, let us know and we will ensure we are set up quicker so there is no disruption to your schedule. As soon as our PA is set up, we will play your choice of iPod music to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our performance!
Can you roam around while you perform?
Due to the nature of the show (vintage microphones which require cabling and choreography which is designed around the mic stands) we are unable to room whilst we perform. Rest assured, we are a very interactive group so will involve your guests and engage with our audience without even stepping off the stage!
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
We have a huge repertoire which we are happy for you to peruse and select favourites from. We will then put them into the perfect order alongside the numbers we know go down a storm at each and every event!
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Yes, we are a fully self-contained group bringing all sound and lighting equipment necessary, suitably sized for the space and number of guests within it. That said, if PA is not required (perhaps we are not the only act and a rig is being supplied for everyone), do let us know at the time of quoting so we don't overcharge you!
Can you learn song requests before the event?
As our repertoire contains all bespoke intricately arranged 3pt harmony renditions of songs, it isn't possible to just 'throw a new song in' as our backing tracks are crafted from scratch and vocals and choreography must be rehearsed to a show standard. That said, it is always worth asking as you never know what we may already be working on!
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Our energetic, eclectic playlist which we tailor make to suit your theme / event / demographic perfectly. We also offer a choice of costumes to ensure we look the part - from military uniform and sailor girl outfits, to pretty floral swing skirts or polkadot wiggle dresses! We offer an unrivalled bespoke service just for you so your event is a true one off!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Too many to mention! We have performed at countless renowned hotels, cute dance halls, large theatres and bespoke entertainment spaces, from the corner of Cornwall right out to Singapore! We have also performed on P&O, Holland & America and Royal Caribbean cruiselines, as well as live on TV and Radio. From postage stamp spaces to massive festival stages!
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
The Andrews Sisters, Dame Vera Lynn, Anne Shelton, Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Scott Bradlee's Post-Modern Jukebox, The Baseballs, The Puppini Sisters, Michael Buble, Glenn Miller
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Hyde Park's Diamond Jubilee Festival where we performed to 30,000 people! Also, 5 consecutive years performing to 6,000 people weekly at The Battle Proms. We have also sung live for Jonathan Ross on his BBC Radio 2 Arts Show, on BBC TV for Ruth Jones' Easter Treat, singing on Tim Minchin, Dawn French and Michael Sheen and for BBC 2's 'What a Performance.'
