Frequently Asked Questions

How much do you charge?

Less than you might think! The exact fee will depend on how long we play for and whereabouts in the country you are. Please use our 'Get a Quote' page for a precise figure for your event.

What time will you arrive and how long will it take for the band to setup?

Set up time is around an hour, but we like to leave an hour and a half to make sure everything is perfect. We will normally arrive two hours before our scheduled start time but are more than happy to set up early (before guests arrive). Please see the booking form for cost details.

How long will you play for and what time will you start playing?

We offer a variety of set options to suit you. Choose from:
2 x 45 mins
2 x 60 mins
3 x 45 mins
3 x 60 mins

We usually suggest a start time of around 9pm to give your guests time to catch up with each other before the entertainment begins and will play until Midnight (or later if you wish!)

Will you provide background music between your sets?

Of course! Background music is provided free of charge during the band's breaks. If you would like us to use one of your own playlists, we will be happy to hook up your iPod (or other music player!) to our system.

Will the band require feeding?

It's always nice! We will often have been on the road all day and any refreshments are gratefully received. It needn't be anything fancy – just something to keep our energy levels up.

Where will the band play?

Anywhere in the UK. We have played at countless venues, large or small, and so long as they have enough space and a suitable electricity supply there is no problem. If your chosen venue has a sound limiter fitted please advise us beforehand so we can bring suitable equipment. This is not normally a problem – we are used to playing at a comfortable volume level.

How much space does the band require? Do we need to provide a stage?

As a guide, we would normally take up about 5 x 3 m of space, although when space is tight we can often squeeze into smaller venues. Just let us know at the time of booking so we can make sure we bring the most compact equipment. Where a stage is available the band will normally make use of it, but it is not required.

Can I see the band before booking?

As we are primarily a function band this is not usually possible although we do play occasional public gigs throughout the year. See our Facebook page for details of any upcoming events.

Do you play requests?

We certainly do. Please advise us at the time of booking if you would like us to play your first dance or favourite song. With enough notice, we will always try to accommodate requests.
