FAQ

Can I hear you play live before I book?

The video and recordings on our ‘Home’ page should give you a very accurate idea of how we sound. You are also welcome to come to any of our public gigs!

How much do you charge?

We prepare individual quotes for every event. Please contact us for more information.

Do I need to pay a deposit?

A deposit of 20% of the total fee is paid at the time of booking.  Full terms are included in the booking form we send you and a receipt is provided on request.

Do you take requests?

We’re happy to learn a song of your choice for our main set and also for the first dance at a wedding (you can see some examples of what we have played previously on our song list page).

How long does it take to set up?

It will take us about an hour to set up and do a sound check

How much space do you need?

We need a minimum of 5m wide x 3m deep for the band, plus space to the side and front for the speakers, lighting and PA.

What are the minimum power requirements?

We require at least 2 independent 13 amp sockets.

How long do you play for?

We usually do 2 x 60 minute sets, or 3 x 40 minutes depending on how you want to plan your event.

Do you provide music inbetween the sets?

Yes. We can provide music via a laptop or iPod which will go directly through our PA to keep you and your guests entertained! You can also bring your own music on your iPod with your own playlist if you prefer. We usually require an interval of at least 15 minutes inbetween sets

Will you require refreshments?

We kindly ask that soft drinks are provided for the band members. We also request some food if this is possible. Sometimes we set off to the event mid-afternoon and don’t return until the early hours. It doesn’t have to be the same standard as what you and your guests are having. Just something to keep us going!
