Neil and Mark were absolutely brilliant, we could not rate them anymore. They have been more than accommodating, from learning a song for our first dance (which they performed better than we could have hoped) to being really flexible and ready to go for us in an instant. 11/10 would recommend for anyone, and will definitely keep...

FAQ
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
We don't really specify our breaks in between playing, but would prefer at least 10 to 15 minutes in between live sets.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
We always try to learn as many requests as we can leading up to an event, but it obviously depends on time until the event. As a guide we will learn around four specific requests for a wedding or other event, such as your first dance.
How much space do you require?
We have managed to fit into a space no more than 5 x 4 feet but we do prefer to have more space if it is possible.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
All PAT tested equipment and PLI...we are members of the Musicians Union.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Own PA and lighting.
How long do you play for?
Usually two 45 minute sets with the optional dj set in between however, we can cater timings to the event and play longer, or more sets, etc...
How can event planners pay for your services?
Bank transfer or cash at the event.
What kind of events do you usually serve?
Weddings, ceremonies, corporate events, private parties and pubs and clubs.
What is your competitive advantage (special features)?
A live band sound taking up less space than a full band with the ability to control the volume of our performance more efficiently than a full band set up with drums etc... We also provide a dj service alongside our live performance making it easier for clients when hiring entertainment for their weddings and other private events.
What are the highlights of your career?
We have performed at many private and public events across the country, such as Barnard Castle School, Lumley Castle, Chevin Country hotel and Spa, and many more. Highlights of our career as a duo are predominantly at private events where the clients have appreciated our work and leave us fantastic feedback.
Please, describe your act or business in on sentence:
A duo available to hire for private and public events with a live band sound that takes up less space and can be accompanied by a dj service.
