I am really awestruck at your performance. You made my day at my 50th birthday. The way you played it was rocking. Everyone around enjoyed thoroughly. From small children, teenagers to adults everyone started dancing. I saw you first in the wedding of my niece. I made my mind then that you are performing at my party. And see? I loved every moment of it. You guys are now heroes of my event. Hope to bring you back soon.

On behalf of Jules and I, can I please extend a massive thank you for last weekend.
You and the rest of the band were absolutely fantastic.
From I will wait through to Champagne Supernova, everyone loved it and we’ve had loads of compliments directed your way! We think a few might be in touch for future bookings.
Many thanks again for playing a pivotal role in an absolutely incredible day.

We just wanted to send through a note to say thank you so much to you and the band. We honestly cannot thank you enough – without you and the band the
reception could not have come together and music stood out as one of the things that made our wedding so much more personal.
Additionally, thank you for being so responsive to our numerous emails and calls in the run up to the wedding – it gave me piece of mind and definitely helped the day run smoothly
Please also pass our thanks on to the other musicians – we have had multiple messages from our guests commenting on how great the music was.

    Standard band space - though we ask for 3m deep by 5m wide.
  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
    With 3 month notice, we will learn a first dance. If we don't play the song you like, then we can DJ it, if you supply us with a list of songs (a Spotify list) 1 month in advance.
  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
    This depends on how late we start. We arrive at 6pm, are setup by 8pm.... If we started at 8, we would play 3 sets, and space them - possibly DJ for the last 45 minutes... it totally depends on the night, and the clients wishes.
  • Are there any extras to be aware of?
    You will need to take into account meals for the band... we ask for them before we play, preferably when we arrive. With the food for the band - we ask for meals, as when it gets busy( 3-4 gigs a week, with long distances travelled), we wouldn’t survive on sandwiches… and this is just from experience. The venues / caterers often offer crew meals - like lasagne or cottage pie - which is cheaper, and worth asking about. The fees are actually kept low, so that we can have meals included - and we know they are an expense with the caterers (of course, I understand the fee is relative to the band you are hiring)
