    I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that?
    Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest soul and motown classics and current chart hits too, so there's certainly something for everyone.

    Do you take requests?
    We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.

    How long do you take to set-up?
    90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.

    What time do you play?
    At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.

    How long do you play for?
    We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.

    Can you provide music for our drinks reception?
    Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute soul trio set (female & male vocals, piano) or a 60 minute solo piano set, as an add-on which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.

    Do you have your own PA and lighting?
    Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.

    Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?
    Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.

    Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

    Will you perform our first dance?
    Yes, as long as we have two weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.

    How much space do you require?
    We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.

    How much power do you require?
    2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.

    Do I need to provide food/drinks?
    Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.

    Can we see you play live before booking?
    As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
