Do you have different line-up options?
We primarily perform as a duo, but we can bring in musicians that we work alongside with on a regular basis in order to complete the atmosphere you're looking for. Such as a violin player, a singer, etc.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We always try our best to be flexible - we know how often big events come with complications and issues, so we want to accommodate as much as we can. If any changes occur just let us know as soon as possible.
How much time do you need to set up?
Normally we can set up 30 minutes before the performance time, but we would strongly recommend an hour.
Can you roam around while you perform?
Not during a ceremony, but a common add-on to the services we provide are roaming sets during drinks receptions.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Our setlist is made up of the most frequent requests we get at ceremonies and events, and we would be more than happy for you to suggest some of the songs from it.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Yes. Apart from the PA system which is an extra £125
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Absolutely. What isn't included in our setlist can be learned by us before your event. We can learn traditional ballads, songs and even instrumental versions of modern hits. There will be an additional fee of £50 to take into account for rehearsal times.
