We had the most incredible wedding day, thank you. It had a lot to do with all our wonderful suppliers like yourselves. We have received so many compliments about your perfomances both during the ceremony & the canape reception. Your version of 1000 Years for me to walk down the aisle to was absolutely gorgeous. The song we asked you to learn, Suddenly, has been mentioned a lot by those who recognised it from Scott & Charlene’s wedding in Neighbours back in the 80’s. The choice of songs during t...

Duncan very kindly played at our wedding in June 2017. It was a beautiful sunny day and we were therefore lucky enough to have him playing outside where all of our guests were gathered as well. It was beautiful music and nothing too intrusive or loud. We chose the modern playlist with a few ‘classics’ in there so there was plenty of songs in there that everyone could recognise and we received several compliments from our guests about him. I would have no hesitations in recommending Duncan for yo...

Duncan was everything I had hoped for. I booked him very last minute and he was so helpful and kind and then when it came to the event..he played every song wonderfully + more. I am thrilled with how it all went and so happy to have found him. I wouldnt hesitate to ask Duncan again. He is brilliant.

Lizzy and Duncan played at the reception drinks of my wedding. They were amazing! Weddings can be stressful at times but they were always very calming and professional which made me at ease. All the guests loved them and they created such a lovely environment during the reception drinks. I would highly recommended them for anyone looking for a singer/guitarist for a social event. Brilliant!

Lizzy and Duncan are professional, polite and very reliable. Their song choices are always very thought out for the audience they are performing for. Lizzy’s voice is beautiful and Duncan compliments it wonderfully. I will never have any hesitation in booking them for The Live Playlist evenings on a regular basis.
- How long do you play for?We usually perform anything from an hour up to 3 x 50 min sets. We love to create a bespoke package for each occasion.
- Do you have your own PA and lighting?We have a great quality PA that can be adapted for different setups. We have basic white up lighting when needed but do not provide lighting as standard.
- Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?Yes. All our equipment has been PAT tested and we are fully covered.
- How much space do you require?We have a variety of different setups that can cater for different sized events, from a small acoustic amp, up to an 800 watt PA. We can therefore be quite flexible in terms of space, but we would advise a minimum of 3m x 2m
- My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?We love to learn special requests, arrangement dependent, and to personalise our sets around your favourite songs/artists.
- How many breaks do you take? How long are they?We usually have a short break at the end of each hour of performance. This of course will vary depending on the timings of the day.
