Thanks so much for the wonderful performance at our wedding - everyone had a blast! And also a special thanks for being so reassuring through the whole process and on the day, you made it feel so special.
Giles and Ugne• Oct. 20, 2018
GYC played at our wedding in October 2018 and were absolutely incredible! They played a great set from their huge repertoire on offer plus learned some George Ezra specially for us!! Seeing our family and friends singing along, dancing throughout and partying was amazing. I don’t think we ever imagined we could get so many people up and dancing for so long! The guys were full of energy, sounded amazing and engaged with the crowd brilliantly. We even got an encore after I witnessed my new in-laws and family chanting for it! The father of the bride was so impressed he insisted on standing them some drinks after they finished.
The venue told us the day after how impressed they were too and we felt very smug to have booked them!
We honestly couldn’t have wished for a better wedding band!

Yes we have a modern pa system which is self mixed by iPad and our own lighting.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Yes certificates can be shown upon request.
How much space do you require?
Over the years we have had very generous spaces and very tight corners to fit into. The absolute minimum for band and all equipment (to ensure great sound) is 3.5m x 2.5m. It also needs to be dry and flat. We would also require at least 2 mains sockets minimum.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
With our wedding and corporate packages we offer to learn 1 or 2 songs of your choice, but we're sure our eclectic repertoire has something to suit everyone.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
With two sets we take the one break which is no more than 20 minutes.
What do you wear?
Smart. The guys are always in trousers and shirt with either tie/braces/bowtie and the lady in a coordinated colour. We dress in a style that ensures we are looking good but also comfortable enough to play and engage the crowd.
Our venue has a sound limiter of 90 decibels, will this be a problem?
No. We have performed in many venues with sound limiters and are comfortable doing so. For example, we are a recommended supplier for Dodford manor which has a sound limiter.
Do you need to hire a sound engineer?
No, not in our case. Our bassist is a qualified sound engineer and studio wizard, and due to our very up to date equipment we can mix and produce a quality sound from our tablets while performing.
Do I pay for travel expenses and what are they?
Yes. We offer the first 15 miles free, but after that a charge of 0.75 per mile will be worked out and added to your final contract. Our central point is Leighton Buzzard anything over a 15 mile radius from that location will be subject to this charge. We do this as there is always multiple cars due to: 4 band members, their personal effects, change of clothes, instruments, band gear, lights…the list goes on.
What if I need to cancel the booking?
