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?

Vivid have a jazz / easy listening range of options for receptions / cocktail events. We offer everything from a 2 piece instrumental duo(sax & guitar), vocal trio, right up to a 7 piece jazz band. We also offer our show band as a 4 piece, standard 5, super 7 (with 3 piece brass section) and mega 9 ) (3 vocalists plus brass).

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 in the run up to the event just let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate your request.

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

We offer a free background music service from our laptop system. Simply share your playlist with us before your event and we will broadcast this to your schedule. We also offer a DJ service at additional cost.

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?

You are welcome to hand pick your setlist from our extensive repertoire. We also learn and perform a song of your choice completely free of charge as part of our package.

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

We offer a comprehensive PA and lighting system to all clients included in our prices.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We learn and perform one song free of charge for all clients. Additional songs are charged at £60 per song.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We are hugely energetic & enthusiastic on stage (and about the dance floor). We have fantastic performance features that enable us to do real justice to all of our material. We perform our songs in medleys. This means that we don't pause after every song and by mixing songs together (like a good DJ), we keep the momentum up throughout the performance.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have played all over the UK and parts of Europe, Most memorable are Lake Como( lakeside), The top of the Gherkin, and the Marriott County Hall on NYE (about 30 yards from the firework display at the London Eye).

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We have eclectic tastes. Legends from Pop / Soul and beyond all feature highly with us.

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

The RAF centenary event was pretty special for us. Massive crowd, huge stage with video screens as high as double decker buses to project the visuals.
