"The guys were fantastic. Great couple of sets. The weather was glorious and so getting everyone to come in from outside was a struggle but everyone who did had a riotous time. They even invited me up to do the vocal on She Sells Sanctuary (apologies to everyone that had to listen to that but it sounded great inside my head!). Brilliant night and hope to find an excuse to hire you again sometime!"

"You won't regret booking these guys for your wedding, or any other event! I had a fairly small wedding (around 40 people) recently at Lapstone Barn and one of my worries was that the evening might be a bit 'dead' with a lot of the guests being a bit older, and the younger ones not really into 'dancing' and I love dancing! So it was a priority that the evening entertainment was going to be good and keep the atmosphere going - and that they did!! My guests absolutely loved this band, their sound was excellent and the songs were great. They were such a lovely bunch of guys and it was a real pleasure having them play at my wedding! I actually danced until the very end of the night, and it was still buzzing right before the venue was closing for the night! Thanks so much guys. You made the process so easy and smooth and was a stress off my shoulders! Booking a band is a big cost to the wedding, but god it was worth it!!!"

FAQs

How long does it take the band to setup?We usually require 1 hour to setup. We would prefer 1 and a half hours but often venues have a 1 hour turn around and we are therefore able to work around this timescale.
What is the usual amount of time that the band play for?The band is usually requested to play for anywhere between 2 x 45-minute sets or 2 x 60-minute sets. The band are however, happy to work around your event and time scale.
Do you provide music between your sets?We can provide a laptop with DJ music played before, between and after the band's performance. The band members will be happy to take requests on the night and can organize for you prior to the actual
Do the band bring a PA system and lighting?The band bring their own 1500watt PA system which is suitable up to 300 people. If you expect more guests than this then we are happy to quote for a larger PA system with a sound man.
Can the band play some requested songs or our first dance?Of course. As long as the songs suit the band setup and we have enough time to learn the songs to do them justice for your event. If not then we will be happy to play them on our DJ playlist between our sets.
Do the band require food and refreshments?It is usual that the band will need some form of food and drink. This does not have to be a silver service or expensive meal but it is always appreciated that the band eat something as they will be working for up to 12 hours in some cases.
