Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you want to know

Can you DJ?


We can provide a full and manned DJ service to keep the party going all night! Or if you’d prefer we can play recorded music through our sound system - just let us know.




Can you play my first dance?


Yes! We can absolutely learn and perform your first dance (within reason!). Very rarely our clients will choose a first dance that is simply not possible given our instruments and repertoire, but where this is the case, we can play the song for you through our sound system.




How long do you play for?


We perform 2 x 45-minute high-energy sets with the 3-piece band, or 2 x 1 hours with the 4 or 5-piece. We can be flexible to suit your wedding and perform for longer, shorter, or with different timings to fit your day.




Do you bring all your own equipment?


Yes - we typically bring a sound system, some basic lighting (just enough to illuminate the musicians!) and everything else we need to put on our shows. If you do have any special requirements (for example a bigger lighting show or staging) just ask!




Do you have insurance?


Yes. We have full public liability insurance up to £5,000,000, and all of our equipment has been PAT tested too, for those venues that need the peace of mind.




What are your payment terms?


We require a 50% deposit to secure the booking, payable by BACS transfer, with the remaining balance due at the latest 14 days before the performance date.




How far can you travel?


While we're based in London, we regularly travel up and down the country and Europe depending on where the booking is. As such we are very happy to travel wherever in the world you need us to!




Can we use a microphone for speeches?


Sure thing. We can provide a microphone with our sound system that you can use for speeches, but do let us know in advance so we can plan for this!
