Thank you so much for your help in organising the Speakeasy Bootleg Band for the wedding. They were amazing - I had so many comments about how good they were and so many guests asking who they were and where we found them. We couldn't have arranged a better band without your help and the guys were brilliant on the night. Hannah & David (Wedding at Sefton Park Palm House)

- What is your competitive advantage (special features)?There's nobody else like us
- What kind of events do you usually serve?Weddings, Parties, Corporate events, Product Launches, Business Fairs, Beer Festivals, or just a stonking good night in the pub........ and pretty much any event where customers want our kind of music.

- How much space do you require?Generally 5 metres (15 feet) wide by 3.3 metres (10 feet) deep.
- My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?Generally yes, subject to the tune being suitable for Speakeasy Bootleg Band instrumentation (i.e, we would struggle with synthesised music or sampled beats). Should the particular tune require formal arrangments and associated rehearsals, then this would obviously incur additional cost on an individual basis.
- How many breaks do you take? How long are they?We would take one break between each set, generally not less than 20 mins.
Impossible to give a definitive list, as it extends to hundreds, but it regularly includes the following, or we can do 1920s Louis Armstrong/Gatsby type music:-
