Customer questions

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

Providing the band has an hour to set up and sound-check, we will endeavour to be as flexible as we can.

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

While we do not provide a DJ service, we are able to play either your provided playlist or a playlist before, in between and after our sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

We require on hour to set up and sound check. Depending on arrangements this can be done before your event begins (meaning we can play any playlist you provide) or prior to the band's performance.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

No, while it is tempting to want to pick your own playlist, the band has spent time crafting a set list which is proven to provide you and your guests with a great experience. That being said, if you have any specific requests from the set list, we will look to include them.

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

Yes, we provide all our own PAT tested and insured equipment.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

It is always best to speak to the band regarding requests to learn specific songs.
