FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Here are answers to some common questions that we get asked...

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO SETUP?


We require 60 minutes to setup and soundcheck.




CAN WE WRITE THE SETLIST?


Yes. You can find our band's Song List here, please feel free to download that list and let us know any songs in particular that you'd like us perform live on the night, and equally any songs you'd like us to avoid! We will then write the set list for the evening around your preferences. Traditionally we ask clients to limit their song suggestions to 10 songs.




WHAT ARE YOUR DJ PACKAGES?


We have three DJ Packages available... DJ Playlist Service 90 minutes for Free This is a playlist of songs we've created to guarantee that the party carries on whilst we take a short break between Sets. In this Playlist we use the very best danceable pop songs from throughout the decades and it is regularly updated to keep it current. We always provide 90 minutes of this DJ Playlist Service free of charge. Here is an example of songs that are in our current DJ playlist: Havana - Camila Cabello Re-Rewind - Artful Dodger I Gotta Feeling - The Black Eyed Peas Feel So Close - Calvin Harris Hey Ya - OutKast Jump Around - House Of Pain One Kiss - Oliver Heldens Remix Want to increase the amount of time our DJ Playlist Service runs for? That's no problem, additional time is available upon request. Live DJ Price available upon request Our Live DJ package has become our fastest selling and most in-demand 'Add-On'. Featuring top-end London DJs, our Live DJ will work alongside us in the lead-up to the event and they will: - Hand pick the perfect arrangement of songs for your event - Live Mix on the night - Take song requests from your guests - Be on hand for any necessary annoucements Silent Disco Price available upon request. If want your party to carry on into the early hours of the morning (without upsetting the neighbours) then our Silent Disco is for you! What is a Silent Disco?
It's a party where each guest is given a pair of multi channel, top of the range headphones and with a flick of a switch they can decide which channel to listen to. On stage there are 2 or 3 DJ's mixing live and your guests will have the choice of which DJ to listen to. Perfect for venues with noise restrictions ​/ early curfews or for clients who simply want to party for longer!




WHAT TIMINGS DO YOU SUGGEST? (WEDDINGS & CORPORATE)


Over the years we have tried many different timings for events and we've found that these timings work really well... Weddings Set 1 : 8:30 - 9:30 Live DJ / Playlist : 9:30 - 10:30 Set 2 : 10:30 - 11:30 Live DJ / Playlist : 11:30 - 12:00 Corporate Events From our experience of Corporate Events we've found that performing one longer set of 90 minutes generally works best. As, despite best laid plans, often Corporate Events can run very late, even later than weddings! Some timings that we know work well at Corporate Events are: 10:30 - 12:00. However, we are very happy to work around your schedule and vision for the event!




DO YOU REQUIRE FOOD & DRINK?


Yes please! Soft drinks would be perfect, often clients setup a soft drinks (coke, lemonade, tea/coffee) bar tab for us. A hot meal is required per muisician and ideally this would be served in-between our two live band sets. Why a hot meal? I hear you ask. This is simply due to the nature and long hours of our job. For shows we regularly leave home at around 3/4PM and don't return until 2/3AM. Within that time we are driving, setting up, sound-checking, delivering the party of a lifetime, packing down and driving again. So a hot meal is always greatly appreciated as it gives us energy for the performance and the journey home.




DO YOU REQUIRE PARKING?


Yes please!
We require 3 free parking spaces within 200 meters of the venue.




HAVE YOU PERFORMED WITH NOISE LIMITERS BEFORE?


Yes. We are very experienced at performing with Noise Limiters and generally speaking they won't cause us a problem. Please do let us know your venue's noise limiter restrictions as early into the booking process as possible as it impacts what equipment we bring. If your venue's noise limiter is set to around 90DB that is no problem but it might impact the overall volume we're able to perform at. So sadly it might not sound like Glastonbury festival but the party will still go on! If your venue's noise limiter is set to 84DB or below, our suggestion would be that you hire a DJ for your event instead as live bands will struggle to perform at that volume.




HOW MUCH SPACE & POWER DO YOU NEED?


We require a minimum of 2 x 13 Amp power points on stage and a performance area of 15ft x 10ft.




HOW DO WE PAY?


A 50% deposit is required upfront to confirm the booking. The final 50% payment is due 60 days before the event date. Both payments must be made via Bank Transfer.




CAN WE REQUEST A SPECIFIC SINGER?


Yes of course! We're proud to work with an excellent roster of vocalists and we're confident that we've got the perfect singer for your event. Specific singers can be requested and their availability will then be checked. If they are available then they will be booked and will perform at your event. In case of family emergencies or similar, a suitable replacement will be found.




WHAT IF MY EVENT IS RUNNING LATE?


Don't worry!

We have learnt to embrace the tightrope of being both professional and also easy-going. So, if your event is running late (or, in the very rare occasion, early), no need to worry - we will happily adapt to fit around your schedule.




CAN WE SEE YOU PERFORM LIVE?


The majority of shows that we perform at are private events such as Corporates and Weddings which sadly we can't bring guests to. It's worth emailing in and asking us as about our upcoming live public performances as we may be able to invite you to a show.




HOW MUCH DO YOU COST?


Due to the various Bands and Upgrades we offer we always quote on a case-by-case basis. Factors including: band size, event location, arrival & finish time all play a part in us forming an accurate quote. Please get in touch with us via the Contact page and we'll reply to you within 24 hours with a full and accurate quote.




CAN YOU ARRIVE EARLY?


Yes! As standard we arrive 60 minutes before the start of Set 1. However, if you would like us to arrive early to setup and soundcheck so we are out of the way by the time your guests arrive that is possible however it will come with additional cost. Early arrival is something we do often but it is managed on a case-by-case basis. Please don't hesitate to contact us for an Early Arrival quote.
