Q. Is music provided during the break ?
A. Yes we can provide an automatically controlled semi disco between our "live" performances, where we use music media player through our sound system to play all your favourite dance floor hits.

Q. Do you have a dress option ?
A. Normally we dress in smart but casual matching outfits.
Q. How much space do you require ?
A. Approx 20 ft X 10 ft minimum.
Q. There's a noise limiter fitted in our intended venue - is this OK ?
A. Unfortunately not. In common with most other bands we are unable to play through noise limiters because they can result in frequent and embarrassing "cut outs" in the music. Not only would this ruin the event for you and your guests but it could also damage our equipment. So, please ensure that an appropriate venue power supply operator is available if a noise limiter is fitted to eliminate any disruption to your evening entertainment.
Q. Can we use your sound system for speeches/raffles etc ?
A. By all means, although bear in mind that this facility won't be available to you until after we've set up our equipment or have dismantled. If you can let us know at the time of booking.
Q. How long does it take you to set up your equipment ?
A. No more than three quarters of an hour to an hour. If possible we like to have a sound check but we realise this isn't always possible for example, if you're getting married and your guests are already situated in the room when we arrive.
Q. Do I need to arrange a changing room for you ?
A. If possible, ideally yes (Would you change in the toilets for an event, NO we don`t either). If you could liaise with your venue or wedding co-ordinator for us they should be happy to provide this free of charge.
Q. How much do you charge ?
A. Charging very much depends on the location of venue. But we do have a standard regional fee and our rates are very competitive, please contact us for details.
