Customer questions

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

We value the importance of consistency in our service, so will always try to ensure that the line-up you see here is what you will receive on the day. In the unlikely event that any member is unavailable or ill, we will communicate this to you, and have a select list of hand-picked and pre-rehearsed musicians that match our high standards ready to step in.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard line-up is: Vocals, Guitar, Keys, Bass and Drums. We can offer an additional vocalist to this line-up, as well as a stripped back acoustic duo or trio.

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

We will always try our best to be as flexible as possible to your requirements, as we understand that timings can change very easily in event planning. Just let us know if you need to move anything around and we will be happy to do so.

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

No problem! This comes as standard and as part of what we do. If you have any specific requests for a playlist then just let us know and we'll be happy to dance along with you to your choices! If you'd like to continue the party after our sets, using our PA system, we can provide this at a small additional cost. Just let us know in advance!

How much time do you need to set up?

Our standard/ideal set up time is around 1.5 hours. This allows us to be fully set, comfortable and sound-checked to our high standards. As soon as we're done, we can start setting the mood with our inclusive playlist service, and get everyone ready for a party!

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

We've spent a long time really figuring out what works for a crowd, and ensuring that the right mood is created and built on to create that electrifying party atmosphere. That said, we're more than happy to discuss song choices with you before the night, to make sure our performance is just right for you.

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

Absolutely! We usually require a minimum space of 4 x 3 metres for our performance.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We're happy to learn any song request(s) that you may have for your event at a small fee of £50 per song - this accounts for 5 musicians learning/rehearsal times etc. There is also a chance that we may know the song already, so don't hesitate to ask! We also offer a free first dance request for weddings, just let us know well in advance!

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Almost without fail, we are praised on our seemingly endless energy, eclectic choice of songs and our musicianship. Each and every one of us loves what we do, and we aim to translate this to you through our performances - we want you to enjoy the performance just as much as us!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed at countless venues, from pubs all the way through to luxury hotels. The most notable and memorable venues include Ashton Gate Stadium, Badminton Horse Trials and various beautiful venues in the French Alps, including a residency in the renowned Pink Music Bar in Zermatt, Switzerland.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

All of us come from very different (and hard to pinpoint) musical backgrounds, which perfectly suits our eclectic choice of songs! As a band, we aim to treat each style and genre as equal, putting 100% of our energy into everything that we approach.

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

We have performed to 1000+ people on 2 separate nights at Badminton Horse Trials, numerous festivals in the South West, as well as events for Rolls Royce and the British Racing Drivers Club.

I could not recommend The UpTones enough! They were simply amazing! I was really nervous as we didn’t have time to watch them play before the wedding, we booked them for a acoustic duo and a full set in the evening. As soon as we heard Sophie start the acoustic set we knew that we’d made the right decision! My family are a family of music lovers (and critics!) and every single one of them commented on how amazing the band were. If you are getting married or looking for a party band you will not be disappointed. I also have to say Dom was amazing in the build up to the big day, he kept in contact with us via eMail and made sure they met all of our special requests. Thank you again! We will be recommending them to everyone we know! X
