We hired this band for the evening entertainment and were blown away by them! They did 2 sets, 1 before and 1 after the evening food. From the moment they started warming up everyone was up on the dance floor. That was our gig worry, would people enjoy it and dance... there was no need to worry, the defo hit the spot! I would recommend this band to anyone thinking of booking them, we're quite fussy with our requirements and wanted them to fit the venue (Owen House Wedding Barn) but they were brilliant. Great day and even better night. First class music, singing and crowd motivators! Thank you!

How long will it take for the band to set up?
Usually about 60 minutes to load in, set up and sound check. Sometimes a little longer if there is a noise limiter in place to ensure that no limits are exceeded.

Are you available as a bigger band?
Yes, essentially The Icons are a 4 piece with a very full sound but if you require additional musicians we can bring along a Keyboard player, Saxophonist or full Brass Section (additional charges apply). 

What equipment do you provide?
The Icons provide a full PA system, stage lighting and all musical equipment. For bookings with the Band and Professional DJ package additional Dance floor and DJ lighting is included.

How much space do you need?
Approximately 4 metres by 3 metres. 

Do you provide any other live music options?
Yes, the Icons are a very versatile and talented band who can offer various different additional live music options including a Solo set by Singer Maria (either Pop or Jazz), an Acoustic Duo Set by Maria and Guitarist Dave or and unplugged set by the band. In addition to this the band offer a professional DJ who mixes and takes requests (highly recommended).

If you are looking for a full day and evenings worth of live music, The Icons offer an ‘Ultimate Package’ which includes Maria Sings performing at the Wedding Ceremony and Champagne reception, Bleaker St duo at the Wedding Breakfast and The Icons and a professional DJ for your evenings entertainment.

For Maria’s solo profile, see ‘Maria Sings’ or ‘Maria Sings Jazz’ and for the Acoustic Duo see ‘Bleaker St’.

How many people does your PA system cover?
The Icons have invested heavily in top of the range equipment providing you with the best sound in the business. Their PA covers up to 500 guests. If your event is bigger than this then the band can provide additional PA, Staging, Star Cloths or Lighting for an additional fee.

What lighting is included?
The Icons provide LED stage lighting and Stage Uplighters and if the Band and DJ package is booked, additional Dance floor and DJ lighting is included.  If required The Icons can provide up-lighters around the room set in a colour of your choice for an additional fee.

My venue has a noise limiter, can the band still play?
Yes, The Icons have played many venues with noise limiters in place comfortably for settings as low as 85/90db. For anything less that this we recommend booking The Icons unplugged set.

Do we need to provide anything for the band?
Free parking for 1 van and 1 car, a clean dry changing room and access to the buffet and soft drinks would be appreciated. 

Are we able to contact you before the booking?
Yes of course. Once you have made the booking, Warble Entertainment will pass on your full details and singer Maria will be in touch approx 3 weeks before the big day. At this point we discuss timings and any questions you may have about the band or your event. We know that planning an event or wedding can be stressful but with an abundance of experience at events and weddings we hope to put your mind at ease so that you can concentrate on having a wonderful time. The Icons absolutely love their job and look forward to providing you and your guests with a great nights entertainment.
