Just another big thank you for such a wonderful performance by you and the band last Saturday at Sarah & Alastair's wedding. Everyone thought your music was simply fantastic and you really made the evening go with a swing. Apart from getting me on the floor you even had the neighbours dancing to it in their homes - so I was told! We'd be delighted to recommend you for any other function. Well done and thank you to you all. Kind regards, Clive Barrington.

Q: Can we request a certain song to be played for the first dance at our wedding?
A: Yes. If you would like The Acoustic Picassos to play your chosen song, they are more than happy to do this, given reasonable notice for rehearsal. Alternatively, the band are happy to play a CD supplied by yourselves for the first dance.
Q: How long do the band play for?
A: The Acoustic Picassos provide approximately 2 hours of live music. This is ideally spread over two 1 hour sets, but timing is flexible on the night of the performance. The band can also play for 2 x 45 minutes if preferred for your event. If the client wishes the band to play for a longer period, there is a fee of £100 for an extra 30 minutes of live music.
Q: What technical information do we need to know before the band arrives?
A: The band require 13 amp power supply preferably with two or more plug sockets, but they can work with one socket. All the band's equipment is PAT tested.
Q: What does the band provide for a wedding / function?
A: The band is a self contained unit - they provide the professional 2600 watt PA equipment, full lighting display and a CD player/ipod (if required we provide party music before, in between sets and afterwards at no extra charge, which means you do not need to pay for a DJ).
Q: What type of music does the band play?
A: Acoustic versions of contemporary chart hits and timeless classics, covering rock, pop, indie, dance & disco genres from 1960s to present day. Please take a look at the full song list.
Q: How much room do the band need to set-up?
A: If you are providing a platform stage, the minimum space required is: 4m wide X 3m deep (13ft X 11ft). However if you have only floor space The Acoustic Picassos can fit into most areas, with a minimum depth of 3m / 11ft.
Q: Do we need to provide anything else for the band on the night?
A: Yes. To play at an evening function, with a typical set-up time of 6.00 pm and a midnight finish, the musicians will probably leave home in the early afternoon and will not be back until 2.00 or 3.00 am. These times may even be extended where more travel is involved or where there is an early set-up or late finish. This means that musicians will typically be away from home for 12 hours or more, and this is why they need soft drinks and something fairly substantial to eat to keep them going. Many thanks. :-)
- The band can provide 2 x 60 minutes, 2 x 45 minutes or 2 x 30 minute sets depending on your requirements for your event.
