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: Guitar, Bass and Drums, with all members singing main vocal parts and 3 part harmonies.

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. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we also provide this for free.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 hour 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. We usually require a minimum of 12 x 12 foot space to perform

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.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our clients love our varied genres of music covered, as well as our 3-part harmonies that add musicality. Our clients also love our relaxed approach and our ability to get everyone in the room, involved in the performance.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Too many to mention, but some of the stand out venues include the Royal Albert Hall London, Radio City Music Hall NYC, the Ryman Theatre Nashville and multiple arenas throughout the UK, USA and Europe - check our Biography!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We have extremely eclectic tastes as individuals, but we have shared lives of the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Chuck Berry, James Brown and David Bowie, to name but a few!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

As individuals, we have performed some very high profile gigs over the years (see Biography), but we recently as a group performed a Blues set of cover material at the Roundhouse in London. We also performed a wedding for a celebrity, on a yacht, on Lake Como in Italy!

We cannot thank the The Superlatives enough! From day one, it was an absolute pleasure working with them, couldn't be happier and neither could our guests. Nothing was too much trouble and made us feel so comfortable beforehand, which is one less thing to worry about when planning a wedding.

I Just wanted to drop a quick note to say a huge Thank you for playing at our wedding on 27th April, 2019. The Superlatives were absolutely amazing! Nothing was too much trouble, even learning our first dance song to make it extra special! The atmosphere was fantastic, everyone was up dancing all night and we received lots of positive comments about the band. You helped to make our special day so memorable. Thank you again!
