What do your clients love most about your performances?
They have been impressed with our musicianship and the way that our callers have engaged the audience.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Sutton Coldfield Town Hall Pelsall Village Hall University of Birmingham Students Guild Newman House (Birmingham University) Chuckery Club - Walsall The Queens Foundation
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
I guess Fairport Convention, The Albion Band, Hekety and other bands of this ilk.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I would say a gig for SSAGO in 2019 which had a group of about 250 students dancing in a big ceilidh.
Can you perform covers?
We don't do any covers I'm afraid.
Do you have different line-up options?
We usually perform as a 5 piece band plus a caller however we can provide a ceilidh band of between 4 and 6 musicians.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We pride ourselves on being easy to work with and we can often accommodate some changes to a planned schedule.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
I usually have an iPod with a play list that I can put on before we play, during any interval or for part of the time whilst we pack down the gear after the performance.
How much time do you need to set up?
We have quite a large PA so we like to have at least 1.5 hours to set up the equipment and stage once we have all our gear in the room.
Do you provide a caller?
We provide a caller as part of our show.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
We normally play what our caller suggests based on the type of audience and the dance experience they have.
