HOW LONG DO YOU PLAY FOR?
The band will play for approximately 2 and a half hours (or roughly 35 songs), during which we take a 15 minute break and if you book the DJ he will play for 2 hours, starting immediately after the band finishes and playing as late as 2:30am (venue permitting).
DO YOU PROVIDE YOUR OWN EQUIPMENT?
We provide all of the necessary sound, lighting and transport so the price we give you includes everything.
HOW LONG DO YOU NEED TO SET UP?
Set up takes approximately 45 minutes from when we are allowed to load in.
do you take requests?
Generally speaking we do not. If you would like us to play a song live for your first dance, we will send you a list of recommended first dances that are in our repertoire.
DO I NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT IF I WANT TO BOOK THE BAND?
Yes. A deposit will secure the band, with or without the DJ, for your wedding.
WHAT TIME DO YOU ARRIVE?
We arrive at 8pm.
CAN YOU SET UP BEFORE DINNER?
In some cases yes but we will charge extra as it means arriving 4-5 hours earlier.
In most cases arriving at 8pm is absolutely fine.
IF WE HAVE A FRIEND DJING FOR US, CAN THEY USE YOUR PA?
Yes, but we will charge a fee for this.
DO YOU PLAY WALTZES?
Generally speaking we don’t play traditional waltzes so if you want them we are probably not the band for you. We do play some slow songs such as Louis Armstrong’s ‘Wonderful World’ and The Pogues ‘Rainy Night In Soho’ which are good for slow dances but up tempo music is our specialty.
DO YOU PLAY SONGS FOR THE OLDER CROWD?
We play plenty of oldies from the likes of Chuck Berry, Elvis, The Ronettes, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, The Kinks and many others that all ages will appreciate. Old or new, we pick music that we genuinely like and this comes across in the performance.
DO YOU FINISH AT A PARTICULAR TIME?
At almost every wedding we play, dinner and speeches run behind schedule but we are extremely flexible and accommodating about this. We enjoy what we do and once we’re set up to play we always play a full set, where the venue allows it.
