Please, describe your act or business in on sentence:

What are the highlights of your career?
Played live on Radio and at some fantastic venues, Stately halls, galleries, festivals but our highlights are always playing at weddings and special events. We are often called years later to play at anniversaries and christenings which are always an honour.

How long do you play for?

Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
How much space do you require?
We usually take up approx 3 x 2.5 metes; if needed we can do a smaller space but we would need to see the layout of the venue first.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
Yes we will try and play any special requests given to us no later than 3 weeks before the event.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
We usually take a break after the first set for about 30 minutes but we will be flexible depending on the venue and function ( for example if there is a food course being served or prepared presentations)
Can you use the house PA ?
Not always we would need to liaise with the venue
How much time do you need to set up ?
If easy access around 45 minutes, ideally we would also need to sound check as well
Can you play for longer ?
As we design our sets to build as the event goes on we prefer to pre arrange rather than on the night
