As well as the electric set up the Playing Out also have a mobile battery amp set up if there no electric, which means the duo can easily move spots and play were there is no electric.

At many weddings Playing Out have been booked to play with the battery amps outside on arrival and sometimes go inside and play an electric set as well. The battery amps are also great for outside events around towns. This set up is also great for outside events and the band have played in shops, post offices and on trains, boats and once in a bakery.


Everything above applies also with the solo act except the things below. The solo act is one half of the duo.

There is still lots of singing but with the duo vocals are split equally as well as some harmony's, this is not possible with the solo option. With the solo act there is no second guitar playing which does a lot of lead melodies. Also, there is no banjo option.

There are certain numbers that are only done in the duo not the solo act. These are marked on the repertoire list.

The recording clip featured on the profile is the duo not the solo act.

  • As well as the Duo & Solo act, The Acoustic version of the duo can become a Trio adding a Bass or Double Bass player.

Just jazz or a mixture?
We sing & play a big mixture of popular music and we are also often booked just to play & sing popular jazz.

We are happy to learn requests as long as we are given a week.

Setting up early?
We can arrive early If needed or set up in a short amount of time with out making any noise.

How much Stage space do you require?
The duo have worked it down to 2. 5 because we have played in shops small restaurants and once in a post office and other unusual places. A bit more room means we can take a slightly bigger set up. The solo act 2sq. metres. 

Music between breaks?
If wanted we supply music on a CD player in the breaks or when requested.

Volume control?
This is one of our specialities. We are often are booked to play total background or louder If required.

Backing tracks or acoustic?
You have the option. When we play with backing tracks they are not to dominant and It's still a very live sound with various live instruments and vocals. Or we can just play and sing acoustic If wanted.

Setting up early?
We can arrive early If needed or set up in a short amount of time with out making any noise

Vocals or instrumental?
There are lots of vocals and both of us sing but If requested we can just play instrumentals.

Maximum playing time is two and a half hours. Break or breaks would be added on top of this.
