Customer questions

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

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up is as follows: Vocals, Lead Guitar, Bass, Drums.

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

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.

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. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The high energy, minimal gaps between songs to keep them on the dance floor and that every track is an immediate floor filler.

WELL DONE! Played for the first time at the RBL Crowthorne Saturday the 10th of August 2019 and they were blooming fantastic. Kept our members on the dance floor from the word go right until the very end, when the crowd wanted more they were just brilliant and played an encore for 20 minutes!!! Highly recommended this band, we look forward to having them back in March 2020.

Excellent band, well worth booking A range of hits from the sixties to present day, excellent harmonies and fantastic musicianship. They are an absolute MUST for any parties of functions, and once they have played for you, you want them back again and again.
