Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our energy and mix of songs. We have been playing together for around 3 years and have developed a tight sound!

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

Birmingham O2 Academy

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

6 months ago we had a different singer when the band was known as Kingson. We have since changed name to MONICO, therefore some videos may have the old singer in them

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up is as follows: Bass/vocals, Guitar/vocals, Drums. We can also provide acoustic lineups if you cannot accommodate a full band.

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, we do this at every gig. We can also provide a dj set after the performace if required.

How much time do you need to set up?

30 We usually set up about 1 hour 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?

Our set lists are crafted 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?

Yes, our PA, lighting and all equipment is included in your quote.

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. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you.

We originally booked the guys under their old band name Kingson, but theyve got a new singer since. The new singer is fantastic and it's great how all the band sing. Nice guys too and funny. Highly reccomend!
