Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The way we have fun on stage and love our job. We are a real band family and best of friends, this shows in our performance to you. We often use #notjustaband on social media as we are so much more than just musicians standing and playing instruments.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Without listing them all, we have probably played 90% of wedding venues within 100 miles of Leeds and many others beyond in the UK. Hotels, golf clubs to barn weddings you name it. Even if we haven't played your venue we make sure we scout it out, talk to the events manager/wedding planner and tick every box to make sure all will run smoothly for the event.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Each band member is influenced by many different artists and groups, from the soul and Motown era to modern pop artists. We all bring our influence to the band and combine to make a tight sounding, well-rehearsed, passionate group

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

Each and every bride and groom's wedding! Sorry, we haven't played for the Beckhams or Kardashians

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

100% yes, its Liz's band and she's the main one, we would never use different musicians unless there is genuinely no other option. The only time we would EVER use a different lead singer is in a completely unavoidable emergency, we have 3 deputy singers who know our setlist inside out so we can cover this and you will still get an amazing show.

Do you have different line-up options?

We are very flexible with our line ups and the band consists of multi-instrumentalists. Let us know what you need or ask us for advice to make your event perfect.

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

We are flexible within reason. As an example, if your party starts at 7 pm and ends at midnight and the band are due to go on at 9 pm for the first set...if it needs to be a little earlier or later we are there for you so no worries. So long as we finish at the agreed time and can start packing away that's great. We set up 2 hours before the event begins.

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

With ipod service, we are happy for you to send a playlist over on Spotify before and we will put it into our automix DJ program. Please note the desk will not be manned on the night for requests or songs professionally mixed so we take no responsibility if guests don't have a DJ to talk to. Its band only and iPod service is a free extra.

How much time do you need to set up?

We ask for 2 hours for load-in, setup and soundcheck. We can bring less setup and have it done in 90 minutes if this is a problem. Its important we have enough time to do an unrushed process to get you the best possible sound and experience

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

Feel free to pick which songs you want or don't want. Every setlist is customized. We have tried and tested songs we know work so you can also leave it to us. We are easy and it's your event!

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

Yes, we have heavily invested back into our gear over the years and have a phenomenal PA system and lighting setup.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We will learn 1 special song for free, this can be your first dance or just a special song in general. We do need at least 2 weeks' notice for this to arrange practice time with all our musicians.

This band are amazing, they played our first dance live which was a lovely start to the evening. They play a wide variety of music from Motown to current songs and played requested songs. All in all they made our day really special. We highly recommend. Rachel and Derek

This band is the best choice on every level for a party. Our wedding evening reception was truly amazing because of the effort from these wonderful people. The room was very big but their sound system sounded brilliant anywhere you stood to dance, and was not too loud for other guests to talk. Our first dance "l-o-v-e" was learnt to a tee and we will not forget it. We booked both 6 piece band and DJ, the dancefloor was full and those guests who do not dance still commented on how it was amazing. Liz got the guests involved with tambourines and conga lines, so much fun. James (DJ) is really talented at mixing popular songs and reads the crowd well. He actually got booked for my aunties party just after the wedding because she loved it so much. They are ALL polite, courteous and go the extra mile. We treated them like guests and are now friends. We 100% recommend the band and DJ, they are worth every penny. Mr and Mrs Harding x
