Ollie & Victoria
Thank you so much for performing at our wedding last Saturday! We had a feeling you were going to be good but not that good. You guys were incredible and simply made the wedding for us. All our guests were raving about it the next day!! The atmosphere in there was amazing! If we get married again (lol) or have any other event then we will definitely be back in touch. Thanks for performing in the daytime as well. You guys are simply brilliant and top guys. All the best for the future.
We give you a bespoke price based on the exact location of your event. The pricing below is based on a central location for your area so you have an idea of what your price will be. The exact price will be given in the booking process after you’ve provided the location details.
How long do you play for?
The standard industry set lengths are 2x45 mins or 2 x 60 mins. Our sets are 2 x 60 minutes but we can split this into 3x 40 mins or 1x 30 mins and 1 x 90 mins to suit your specific itinerary.
Do youplay background music between sets?
We can offer a Full DJ Service as part of your package or you can simply plug in a divide to our P.A. system with your own playlist.
Can we choose the setlist?
Our Set List is tailored to suit your requirements. First of all you can tell us any songs on our repertoire that you do not like. You can then pick songs from our list that you particularly want us to play on the night. It's best to leave us to complete the rest of the set list with what we know works. If you have specific song requests then we will learn one within the price and any extras will incur a small charge, simply because we don't have enough time to learn and rehearse songs for every single client. It would take up our whole lives!
How long does it take to set up?
Our standard arrival time is 6pm and we need roughly a minimum of one hour to set up and sound check.
What if you are sound checking and we are doing the speeches in the next room?
Setting up a band does not have to mean hours of noisy guitars and drums and people saying "one-two testing" on the microphone. As a function band we are well experienced at setting up discreetly. This is part of our job. We will enter the room at a time that is convenient. We will set up silently and only turn on amps and hit the drums when the time is right to do so. When we do turn on you can expect each instrument to be tested and then we will play half a song as a band, followed by half a song again after any adjustments. This is usually all we need to be ready to perform. If you need us to stop for any reason we will oblige immediately. It is your responsibility to allow us time to set up and sound check, otherwise we cannot guarantee that your event will run to plan.
How much space does the band need?
We ask for a stage space of 5m x 3m on a level ground.
