Customer questions

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

The singer and the saxophonist, (Kerri and Lottie) are likely to be the players for the show, in the event they can't we have three amazing singers and saxophonists who are ready to take their places.

Do you have different line-up options?

We can add drums, bass and guitar on where required, creating an awesome function band!

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

That's ok! As long as it doesn't affect the times too much, we are flexible with showtimes.

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

Yes, we certainly can! We play music between sets but no requests, this will be a setlist/playlist rather than a DJ service. We do have an amazing add on for Ibiza sax and a DJ post-event which you can book for a bargain price (as we are there anyway,. we can offer this!)

How much time do you need to set up?

60 mins max

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

Yes :)

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, we can learn ONE song for each event, after that the fee for learning a new song is £30 a track.
