When booking a live band for your wedding or event you are bound to have a few important questions that you need answering. We've tried to list as many common questions we are asked as possible below. If there is anything else you need to know then please don't hesitate to get in touch and one of us will get back to you as soon as possible.
Q, How much do you charge?
A, Pricing is subject to a number of factors including the type of event, timings, distance to travel and the length of the performance. A 'guideline' package price can be found in the Packages section, but if you'd like to contact us for a tailored quote we will reply within 24 hours.
Q, Do you take a deposit?
A, Yes, we take a £50 deposit to secure a date in our diary.
Q, When would the final balance have to be paid by?
A, We are happy to leave that up to you, some like to pay before the event and some like to pay on the day itself.
Q, What would you need us to provide?
A, We would just need power for the equipment, we would recommend ensuring there is at least two plug sockets.
Q, Do you supply all PA and Lighting?
A, Yes, we are self contained and we use only the highest quality equipment.
Q, Are you a full time professional musician?
A, All involved are full time professional musicians with lots of experience.
Q, Do you play at many weddings?
A, We play at many weddings each year, infact we play more weddings than any other event.
Q, I've been told my venue has a noise limiter, is that a problem?
A, Not at all, We are able to accommodate by using electric drums to keep the music under the 'cut off' threshold.
Q, Do you travel anywhere?
A, We travel nationwide but be aware that the extra travel time, expense and potential hotel bills may add to the overall cost.
Q, When will you arrive?
A, We usually arrive a minimum of 1 1/2 hours before playing, All events are different with different things going on in the day so we are also happy to arrive earlier on request.
Q, Do you take song requests?
A, We are more than happy to accept song requests, we often keep them in my set so everyone wins!
Q, Can you supply background music inbetween sets?
A, Of course, we an also supply music until the end of your evening free of charge.
Q, Do you do a DJ set?
A, We do offer a 'DJ' service and we can happily stay until the end of the night and provide music for you from all genres and for all tastes. Although we're not ones for 'cheesy' DJ talking inbetween songs and you probably wouldn't be treated to such delights as oops upside your head or the macarena unfortunately! Also many couples arrange their own playlists on laptops/ipods with all their favourite songs on for their guests to enjoy, this is fine also.
Q, How long do you normally play for?
A, Standard sets are 2 x 45 minutes. Other common variations are 2 x 1 hour's and 3 x 40 minutes. we are happy to work with you and decide what is best for the event.
Q, Do we choose the setlist?
A, It's entirely up to you, some couples like to choose a selection of songs from the set lists section while others have enough on their plates organising all sorts of things (i've been there!) and just leave it up to us to decide.
Q, Does the band have PAT and PLI certificates.
A, Yes and most wedding venues ask for these, i can either send them to you or straight to venue.
Q, What if i need to cancel a booking and is there a cancellation fee?
A, I take a minimum £50 'non refundable' deposit to keep the date free for you, but there is no cancellation fee.
