We would highly recommend this act. We booked them for a 'get together' the night before our wedding. There were about 90 of us in a pretty compromised venue, but Hannah and Charlie were very flexible and gauged the crowd well and were more than happy play requests.
We personally thought that they were much better than in real life than their videos and were brilliant value for money.
You will not be disappointed if you book them.

Charlie and Hannah ( The Pause) were exceptionally good musicians, Hannah had an amazing voice and thrilled our guests with her versatility. They provided background music at our garden party which we all enjoyed.

What are the highlights of your career?
We have had the pleasure of regularly playing weddings around the South West region for the last 10 years. Being a part of providing the festivities on those special days and getting such great feedback is a continuing highlight and making a lot of new friends along the way too :-)
What is your competitive advantage (special features)?
Although many acts offer packages/options so to suit your entertainment budget, we DON'T. That is because we want to offer you the best value for money. We don't charge extra for DJ sets or background music. If you want to use a separate DJ that is no problem, but you can save a fair amount of your budget by having us provide this for you. For a small extra fee we can add a very personal touch by learning and performing a song or songs of your choice if they are not already part of our set list.
How can event planners pay for your services?
We find that bank transfer is the easiest and most efficient way to pay for our services.
How long do you play for?
We usually play two sets, each 1 hour long (so 2 hours in total) but we can be as flexible as you need to fit with your event. Just let us know how long you want us to play. Although we are very flexible and accommodating to make your day or event exactly how you want it
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Yes. We have a full range pro PA and stage lights, traveling lights and smoke.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Yes. If you or the venue you are booking require a copy of any certificates just let us know.
How much space do you require?
As its just the two of us we don't need a lot of room , we are also equipped to play outside if that's a preferred choice
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
Not a problem :-) for a small extra charge we can learn a new song and keep you updated with its progress before the event date !
