...and many more....
What do your clients love most about your performances?
That some of the songs we play just aren't covered by other party bands, we love soul, funk, disco and jazz-funk music and so do our Clients usually - if not then they do by the time we've finished our sets! We play dance music from a specific era with lots of great racks to choose from. Plus we have a great singer!!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Many of us have played iconic venues up and down the UK - Hammersmith Palais, Ronnie Scott's, The Lyceum, The Forum, King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, Jazz Cafe to name but a few...
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Everybody in our song list and many more besides outside this band's genres, good music is good music.
Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?
Absolutely yes! We do have pre-auditioned 'dep' musicians available who we have known and played with for a long time in case a band member falls ill or is otherwise unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that everyone we work with is of a very high standard.
Do you have different line-up options?
We usually play out as a six-piece (singer, sax, keys, guitar, drums & bass), but we can also perform as a 5 or 4 -piece, as an instrumental quintet/quartet or trio if required and, for larger events and budgets, additional musicians (brass section, percussion, backing singers etc).
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 and we'll do all we can to accommodate.
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 using our top of the range PA after the final set until the venue closes, The Duke, our resident DJ will provide this for an additional £250 up until midnight.
How much time do you need to set up?
We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time to get sound-checked and fully prepared before your Guests arrive.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Our performances and song choices are based on our experience of what works best for our band 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?
PA and basic lighting is included. If you require additional lighting, this will need to be discussed on our initial call as we are not specialists and there may someone closer to your venue who can supply your exact requirements better.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. We will learn up to 2 x songs (first dance, etc) and there is no charge for this service.
