Below are a few common questions and suggestions to make your evening go
smoothly (and our lives a little easier!!).
How long do you play for?
This does depend largely on the timing of the event but a normal 8pm-12am evening would be
as follows (all timings are very flexible – just tell us what you have in mind):
6:30pm – Arrival at venue for setting stage (earlier arrival is possible but may incur extra costs)
7:30pm – Background music through PA system (still finishing off setting stage)
8:15/8:30pm – 9:30pm – Start of evening’s entertainment (1st set)
9:30pm – 9:45pm – Break with music through PA (either disco-level or background if your guests are eating)
9:45pm – 10:55pm – 2nd set
10:55pm – 11:00pm – Break with disco music through PA system.
11:00pm – 12:00am – Final set
If the finishing time is later the 2nd and final set would be longer.
How much does it cost?
Because the cost of the evening does depend on so many factors (including: event times / finishing time,
distance travelled, time of year, type of event, etc) it is almost impossible to give an accurate
price here so the best thing to do is to just give
Kathy a call or drop us an email and we will be pleased to give you a quote.
One thing we can say, however, is that we DO NOT require a deposit.
The booking is confirmed via a contract and payment would be on arrival at the
evening of your event.
This also saves you having to find funds in advance.
What sort of music do you play?
As you can see if you take a look at our songs page, there is an enormous amount of
music we can play. There truly is something for everyone!
How it has been described in the past is that we “play the songs you hear on the radio”.
We are learning new songs constantly, not just
current chart songs but also older classics.
We also offer the service of learning your “special” song be it for your
first dance at your wedding or just a particular favourite you would like to hear.
We also invite you and your guests to give us requests. We like a challenge.
How much room do you need?
To accommodate the band to its full potential we would require a rectangular area
of, at least, 7m x 3.5m (20ft x 10ft). We can fit into slightly smaller spaces but it
reduces the effectiveness of our performance.
We don’t require a stage but if there is one provided it must be flat, level and stable.
If your function is to be in a Marquee we would require a flat
boarded surface (i.e. staging or an extension of the dance-floor!)
WE CANNOT SETUP ON GRASS OR UNEVEN SURFACES!
If you're not sure, please give us a call.
The most important thing is a stable mains power supply. Normally we would just require
two 13Amp mains sockets on the stage area inside the venue.
If the function is to be in a Marquee we would either need adequate 13Amp extension leads from the nearest
building to the stage (we can supply these but notice is required)
If the power is to be supplied by a Generator thERE must be at least
3.5kVAFOR BAND USE.
Again if you're not sure, please give us a call.
If possible we would require a lockable room/area suitable for changing into our performance clothes.
We do not ask for any food or drink but if refreshments are offered we are always most grateful….!!!
We do not use smoke or bubble machines but there are strobe light effects.
We cannot guarantee to be nut free…..!!!!
