FAQ

FAQ

What are your arrival and leaving times

Our standard arrival time is 6.30pm and the finish time is 12am. 

Early arrival

We suggest that if evening timings are tight, it is worth booking for the PA and drummer to arrive early to set up their bits, because it is by far the most time consuming part. It is £10 per hour for each. 

Party Music Extention

if you want to keep the party music going later than 12am, we have options until 2am 

How long is your set up

Typically 30 minutes from arrival to the party music starting. 

Do we need to provide ANY LIGHTS, SOUND OR PARTY MUSIC PLAYLIST

We are totally self contained with sound and lighting. But if you have extra lighting that you want to use, it will always add to the vibe! Regarding party music, we have all the tools needed for it. But if you have a specific playlist, let us know. 

Do we need to provide food and drink

Yes please. Food, water bottles and soft drinks are great.  If it isn’t possible to provide us with food and drink, please let us know so we can arrange our own. 

What is included with the booking

As standard, each booking incudes 2 hours of live music, PA & Lighting, Party Music from 7pm until 12am, PLI & PAT, First Dance Request free. 

What are the addons

Most typically it is extra party music, or early setup for the drums, PA & background music. We also often do afternoon or ceremony sets. 

Can you play venues that have noise limiters

Yes. We’ve learned how to deal with them so they usually aren’t an issue at all. 

How do you organise payment

We take a deposit which covers our admin & PA costs. Then the remainder is cash on the night. We have a breakdown on the summary part of our quote form. 

Do you do requests?

For first dance songs, mostly yes. For general requests, ask us! We usually say yes. 

Can we choose the set list

In short, no. We react to the audience in front of us and change things if needed. But do get in touch with must haves or must no’s!
