Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Quality music, a great vibe, and willing to party with the rest.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Headliners at Glastonbury 2019, 14 sold out concerts at Wembley Stadium, 2 world stadium tours.... This is obviously a lie, but we've performed at many venues as a band and as session musicians in our own right. Charlie and Ollie went on tour with New Order, if you want a name drop, and they know how to work a crowd.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We love lots of things, but there are some amazing songs from the 70's, 80's and 90's that people always forget about, and we always try and include some of these in our sets, to give you something different to every other function band playing "Uptown Funk". Again.

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

Not to brag, but we played a function and Michael Gove was there; take from that what you will.

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

The main singer is our keyboard player Ollie, but our amazing guitarist Charlie has a belting voice, so might take a couple of numbers himself to give Ollie a break. It will always be either Ollie or Charlie singing though; so you can expect consistency.

Do you have different line-up options?

We have connections in high places (sort of) so if you want a sax, trumpet, trombone, violin, or 14 sausage dogs, just ask and we'll see what we can do! We love going out as a quartet, but if you want a duo or trio we can work to your needs and tell Charlie to stay at home (but he might be sad).

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

We're flexible, just let us know what's going down and we can work from there.

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

Absolutely! We'll play all your faves before and between our sets via a Spotify playlist through our PA. If you want us to provide a DJ service post-gig, let us know what the timings are and we will provide a quote for you.

How much time do you need to set up?

It takes us up to an hour to set up and soundcheck ready for your performance. Ideally, if we can get in 2 hours before our first set that is the dream, then we can give ourselves plenty of time to make everything spot on for our performance, then everyone is happy!

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

We have a huge song list which includes some absolute classics and deeper cuts, things that make you go "oh I LOVE this one" but maybe you wouldn't have thought of yourselves. Go have a gander and see if your favourite is on there, if not just ask! We'll take your requests and combine with our BA Hons in Bangers For Parties to create a dream set list.

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

Indeed it is; or else that'd be a pretty poor deal. If the venue has an in-house system or a volume limit, please please please let us know in advance so we can correspond with the venue about the best way to set up our equipment.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

As long as there aren't 484, then definitely. Learning is fun with friends.
