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-auditioned '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: Lead Female Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Drums. We can add members if you've got something in particular in mind, and we can downsize too if needed, but for a really good party, we recommend the 4-piece at a minimum.

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 for before, in-between and after live sets until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £278.

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?

Yes! We've got around 230 songs you can pick from. :)

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

Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 3m by 4m space to perform

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, so please don't hesitate to ask! If there is a special song you'd like us to learn, we are more than happy to do this for you, free of charge. For every additional 'off-the-menu' song there is a fee of £50 to take into account rehearsal times etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

They love how interactive we are. Our lead vocalist has really honed her craft over the years. You can expect costume changes between sets, a really great connection between the band and the vocalist. Our vocalist roams through the audience, gets people to join her on stage for singing and dancing. She's also great at entertaining kids with fun dance moves.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed at over 223 venues over the years. Multiple times in many of those venues. Far too many to list here, but some of them include The Shangri La in Abu Dhabi, Grittenham Barn, The Berkley, Le Meridien, The Savoy, The Dorchester, The Ritz, The Waldorf, Home House, Eight Moorgate, Chelsea Physic Garden, 170 Queens Gate & Blenheim Palace.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Bruno Mars, Marvin Gaye, Erykha Badu, Chaka Khan, Estelle, Stevie Wonder, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Winehouse, Etta James, Soul to Soul, Emotions, Michael Jackson, DNCE, Justin Timberlake, Gloria Gaynor, Kool And The Gang, Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, Gnarls Barkley, Beyonce, Martha and the Vandellas, Alicia Keys, George Michael, & Cee Lo Green.

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

The Voice!
