Frequently Asked Questions
How much do you cost?
Our prices are dependent on date, location, timings. Providing us with as much information as possible will help us put your quote together.
How do I book?
If we are available for your date, a booking form will be drawn up and sent to you for completion. Once the booking form and your deposit have been received, the completed booking form and receipt of deposit will be sent to you as proof of your booking.
Can I see you perform live before booking?
We hold regular showcases and occasionally perform at Wedding Fairs. Please enquire so that you can come along and meet us!
How far will you travel?
We are more than happy to travel anywhere for your event. However, please bear in mind that venues situated over 2 hours travel from Surrey will incur additional costs for travel and accomodation as needed.
What is included in the quoted price?
The quoted price is based on a 5pm arrival at the earliest with 2 hours of live music divided to suit your requirements beginning at 6pm at the earliest (after a minimum of 1 hour set up time) and finishing at midnight at the latest. It includes travel to your venue (if your venue is within 2 hours travel), all equipment needed, background music through the sound system during breaks and the learning of a particular song just for you (if required). Please enquire if you require different timings and you will be quoted a price based on your specific needs.
What payment methods do you accept?
For your deposit, cheque or bank transfer are accepted. And for the balance, either cash or cheque paid on arrival or bank transfer to clear before your wedding.
What happens if a band member is ill and has to cancel?
In the event of any band member being unable to perform due to illness or other unforeseen circumstance, we have a number of professional understudies to call upon. This will in no way interfere with the quality of the performance.
When will you arrive?
For an evening performance, we can arrive at any time from 5pm to be ready to start at 6pm at the earliest (after 1 hour set up time). For an afternoon performance, we will arrive 1 hour before we are due to begin playing. Earlier arrival times are an option but will cost extra.
How long do you take to set up their equipment?
It is best to allow 1 hour to be completely set up, sound checked and ready to start.
How long will you play for?
We will play two hours of live music divided to suit you. This is commonly done as 2 x 1 hour sets or 3 x 40 minute sets. If you require additional sets of live music this can be arranged for you at extra cost.
How many songs will you play during their set?
In the 2 hours of live music, we usually play between 30 and 40 songs.
How long will your interval(s) be?
We usually take an interval of 10 to 15 minutes between sets. These can be extended to suit you.
What time will you finish?
Your live music can finish at any time before midnight. Alternatively, we can finish earlier and put party music through the sound system until midnight at the latest. Later finishing times are possible but will cost extra.
What happens when you aren’t playing?
When we aren't playing, we will put appropriate party music through our sound system to keep the atmosphere going. An alternative is for you to provide an iPod or laptop with a playlist of your choice which we can then put through the sound system.
How loud will you be?
In terms of volume, you can expect us to be loud enough to dance to but quiet enough that your guests away from the dancefloor can hold a conversation comfortably. As we are using a sound system, we will be happy to adjust volume levels to suit your preference.
Our venue uses a sound limiter, is this a problem?
A sound limiter above 90db is perfectly manageable. Any lower than this and it is worth double checking as sound limiters usually work by cutting off the power to our equipment which can cause damage.
What will you wear?
We will be smartly dressed in black or white shirts, black trousers and smart shoes. If you require specific outfits (tuxedos for example) please enquire and these can be hired in for an extra cost.
How much space will you need?
Based on the three piece, we will need a space of roughly 4 metres across and 3 metres deep. If you have booked a different size of band, simply add or subtract an extra metre of width per band member.
Will you bring lighting?
Yes, we use a disco light bar and two disco floor lights to help create the right atmosphere.
Can we choose which songs you will play?
We have a set list consisting of songs which work well from their experience. We also have an extended repertoire list of all the songs we know. You are welcome to substitute any songs from the extended repertoire into the set list as long as this is done with enough notice for us to perfect your requests. In terms of songs not on the repertoire, we will be happy to learn one or two songs just for you (your first dance for example) for no extra charge, providing it works with the instrumental make up of the band.
Can we borrow your microphone for speeches / announcements on the night?
Of course, clients often make use of our microphone for speeches / announcements. Although it is worth running through the logistics of when you would like to use the microphone before the wedding day.
Do you provide PLI & PAT certificates?
We have up to date PLI (Public Liability Insurance) and PAT (Portable Appliance Test) certificates which some venues may ask for.
Do we need to provide anything?
As we will be at your venue for the entire evening, we do ask that you provide some food and drink (some of the evening buffet and water are absolutely fine).
