Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?
The singer, guitarist and bassist are permanent members and play every show. The drummer is not available for all shows, but we have a number of substitute drummers on call.
Do you have different line-up options?
Our only lineup is vocals/keyboards, guitar, bass and drums.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We are flexible and can accommodate any changes. Please get in touch with us in advance of the event if anything does change.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
We can provide incidental music for free between sets, so please send us your requirements in advance of the show. We do not offer our own DJ service, but are able to recommend one.
How much time do you need to set up?
Generally we require a minimum of 90 minutes to set up and soundcheck and then a minimum of 30 minutes before the beginning of the first set, for the band to warm up/take refreshments. Please advise us in advance about the room and stage/playing area. Generally we are unavailable to provide incidental music during setup/soundcheck.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
We have more songs in our catalogue than required for a two hour set, so yes, you may tailor our setlist to suit your event.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Can you learn song requests before the event?
We are happy to learn a song if you request it a minimum of two weeks before the event. We charge £30 for a song request, to cover the time/costs of rehearsing. If there is a song in our existing setlist which you or a guest would like to sing, please contact us in advance of the event.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Our happy-go-lucky stage manner and our illuminated goats' head props!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Pubs, clubs and small festivals across Hertfordshire, London and the West Midlands.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
The artists whom we decide to cover!
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
The Buntingford Fox & Duck's summer festival in July 2018. Damn near the whole of Buntingford turned up!
