How long do you play for?
Our set lasts two hours or just over it. For Weddings this would include a short break, when tea and coffee is served.
How long does it take you to setup?
Normally around 45 minutes, but depending on the situation or venue it could take slightly longer or less.
Will you play music for the older generation?
Of course. We play a selection of songs to suit all ages. We want everyone to enjoy the night!
Will it be loud?
We do a sound check before every gig. This helps us determine what is too loud and what isn't loud enough, allowing us to get the sound and volume just right! You'll need to bear with us for a few minutes while we do this. So don't worry, it won't be too loud!
Can you provide a DJ as part of the Wedding service?
We can indeed. One of our Wedding packages includes a DJ after we perform. The DJ is a serparate service and is not a member of the band. Please check the Weddings tab for full information.
Do you dress appropriately when performing for certain occasions?
We do. We wear matching outfits; pants, shirt and tie. Very smart!
Do you preform the First Dance live or is it on a cd/mp3?
We can do either to a point. If it is a song already in our catalouge, no problem. If it is a song which is popular or new out and which we think will be coming up more often than not, we'll do our best to learn it, but we'd need plenty of notice(4 weeks min). If it is a song which we are unfamiliar with and/or is not popular to the general public(it would obviously mean something to you), we would play the MP3 of the original. Or it could be a song with some instruments not in our lineup. Some couples prefer the original of the song played via MP3 also.
For Weddings or Dinner dances, would/can you setup before the meal?
Not normally. IF we can, it would incur an extra cost as it would mean us arriving at the venue a good deal earlier. In some cases it would not be possible, as the venue might not allow this. You would need to discuss this with the venue, then with us.
Do we need to pay a deposit when booking the band for a Wedding?
Yes, we do ask for a deposit. We require a deposit to hold and confirm the date. Unfortunately we are unable to provisionally hold any dates without a deposit. This deposit is non-refundable.
