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: Vocals, Guitar, Bass Keys and Drums.

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 provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours 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.

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. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Everyone says that they can’t believe the sound quality of the band. This is because we have invested over £4000 in the PA to get the best sound.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed at a large number of weddings, functions and Christmas Parties and we are very popular around the North East

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We have all been influenced by many artists over the years, there’s not one that stands out above the rest.

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

We haven’t played at any famous persons wedding or party, but there’s always a first time!! For us It’s all about playing music and enjoying what we do.

Excellent band, they performed at my Wedding and were unbelievable! Had everyone on their feet and they were out in the crowd joining in! Well worth it for any occasion or pub looking to book a band!
