Your wedding is likely to be the most special day, and biggest party you'll ever host in your life. We understand that choosing your band can be a huge decision; we have the opportunity to turn a good night into a great night! We've answered a few common questions we receive below, to help you make up your mind.
HOW MUCH DO YOU COST?
Our fee will depend on a few things: If we're performing as a duo/trio, how long we're playing for and how far we need to travel. If you're interested in booking, just give us a message and we'll offer our best price.
HOW LONG DO YOU PLAY FOR?
Our standard set is from 8.00pm until 12.00am. We'll play two live sets, with a break during the buffet. We'll continue to play music through the break, or can play from a playlist of your own - if you prefer.
OUR RECEPTION FINISHES AT 1AM - CAN YOU PLAY UNTIL THEN?
If your night extends beyond 12.00am, we'll be happy to play a DJ set for the remainder of the night – at an additional cost – so just ask us at the time of booking.
I HAVE A DJ BOOKED FOR THE NIGHT/WITH MY PACKAGE. CAN YOU WORK TOGETHER?
No problem! This kind of booking is becoming more common. We'll normally play the first half of the reception before handing over to the DJ at the buffet break for the rest of the night.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO SET UP?
It shouldn't take us any longer than 45 minutes to set up and sound-check our equipment. We aim to arrive around an hour before we're due to begin, and will set up our PA and lighting as soon as the room is ready. All our equipment is covered by our public liability insurance and subject to PAT (Portable Appliance Testing).
CAN YOU LEARN OUR FIRST DANCE?
Yes, of course. So long as we're able to find a suitable track and feel it's something that we're able to sing (we really don't want to murder a Mariah Carey song that we've no right to be singing!), we'll be happy to learn it. We ask for at least one month's notice to learn any new requests. We won't be offended if you ask us to play the original track, either, as we know you might hold that version dearly. Just ask Kevin how that turned out at his wedding!
CAN WE PICK OUR SET LIST FOR THE NIGHT?
We wouldn't recommend doing so, no.
We'll use our years of experience to choose our set wisely so that there's songs for everyone in the room to enjoy and dance along to. We'll always have a chat with you beforehand to understand your musical tastes, what's going to get your guests going & if there's any particular do's or don'ts from our repertoire. There can be everything in there from Sinatra to GBX, so we'll be sure to make sure the songs are right for your crowd.
Yes, we do it! If you've seen our footage you'll know that we don't take ourselves too seriously and like to indulge in some light-hearted, not too complicated dancing during our sets so we love throwing a Canadian Barn Dance into the mix! If you're keen to include a few traditional dances in your night, simply let us know and we'll make time for a short ceilidh set at no extra cost.
CAN MY FRIEND/FAMILY MEMBER GET UP TO SING WITH YOU?
Yeah, sure! It's always nice to see a relative or friend get up and do their party-piece. Ideally, it would be good to know about it beforehand, so we can make sure we have a track available. We'll always run any requests on the night by you, just in case you decide to veto and save everyone from a shocker!
DO YOU OFFER DAYTIME MUSIC?
We can offer a few different options for daytime music - from drinks reception, to meal entertainment and a surprise singing waiters set. It depends on how busy our schedule is, but if you're interested in adding to your booking then let us know.
