Do you have different line-up options?

Yes! We have multiple lineup options depending on your budget. All lineup feature Raphael on male lead vocals. Female lead vocals are available as a bolt-on to all band lineups. 4 musicians - guitar, keys, drums, and bass 5 musicians - add female lead vocalist / sax 6 musicians - add sax and trumpet 7 musicians - add horn section (sax, trumpet, trombone)

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

That's not a problem. We try our best to be as flexible and work as closely with our clients as possible.

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

We provide a complimentary DJ service before and in between sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

Approximately 1 to 1.5 hours.

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.

Wow,.we were fortunate to have the Solar Flares at my daughters wedding 18th November and we could not have been more pleased. Great communication, great set list provided prior for approval with all the usual party songs to get everyone up on their feet. Very impressed and we’ll be booking them again for our younger daughters 21st in April 24. Thanks Raphael and the rest of the band. Dave Bellis

Had a really good experience when we hired The Solar Flares to play at my wedding. They had everyone up and dancing and the singers both had amazing voices and really knew how to work the crowd. I would definitely recommend these guys. Really good! Jade x
