How long do you play for?
Weddings are normally 3 hours, including a break, which usually occurs during the coffee and sandwich break.
What time does the music finish?
For the band it depends on the start time. If we start at 9.30pm then we will finish at 12.30. Our DJ service finishes at approximately 2-2.30am depending on the hotel.
At weddings, what time do you set up?
It does depend on which hotel the reception is held in and sometimes on the number of guests. Occasionally, we can get set up before the meal and speeches are finished, but most of the time, we get set up afterwards.
What time does the band start playing at the weddings?
It varies for different hotels, but most weddings the music starts at approximately 9.30pm.
Do you play the first dance at wedding?
First dances can be played live or on CD, it depends on the bride and grooms wishes and the song choice. We regularly learn new songs for a first dance, but please ask as not all songs are suitable for us to play live. Please ensure as much notice as possible is given.
Do we pay a deposit when booking?
Yes, all private gigs require a deposit to secure a booking. (Deposits are not refundable if bookings are cancelled).
Do we have to dance a first dance and throw the bouquet?
You do not have to do anything you are not comfortable with. We will go through all the details of how you want things to run on the night and work to your wish list.
Do we choose the music for the band and DJ to play?
Requests are welcome, if you have a request for the band, a song from our song list would be fine, but if you request a song we don't do, it will be possible to put it into the DJ set for you. Sometimes we get lots of requests, 50 or 60, and it is just not possible to play them all. We recommend requests be kept to a reasonable amount, a few for the band and maybe up to 20 for the DJ.
What happens if someone in the band gets ill?
We have never let anyone down, colds and flu bugs do not stop us. We have 3 lead vocalists which help if one of us loses our voice. Below is a picture of our old bass player, just after breaking his leg, still gigging in a wheelchair!
