Serious questions…

Can you learn and perform my first dance?

We’re more than happy to learn and perform your first dance free of charge.

Can I see you live before I book?

Unfortunately we’re so busy with private events we rarely get chance to perform publicly, but we make sure all our videos and recordings are fully live to help you decide if we’re for you without necessarily seeing us in person.

My venue requires Public Liaibility Insurance and PAT tested equipment. Do you have this?

We have Public Liability Insurance up to the required £5million and all our equipment is PAT tested courtesy of Swift PAT.

Can I choose songs from your song list for my event?

This is totally up to you. We write a personalised set list for all our events, usually including the songs we know go down the best everywhere we go, but you’re free to have as much input on this as you want!

What time will you arrive at my event?

We generally aim to arrive to evening events at 6pm. We’re happy to arrive as early as 5pm if it helps with the flow of your venue’s setup, but if you require us before 5pm we would be required to charge an early arrival fee at £40 per hour.

How long do you perform for?

We perform for a total of two hours, usually split into two sets of one hour each, but we can split this up in any way that best suits your event.

How long does it take you to setup?

It takes us around an hour to fully setup and sound check our equipment. It then takes us around 20 minutes to get changed and warm up our voices, and just generally prepare so that nothing goes awry!

How much space do you need?

We usually say we need 4.5m (width) x 3.5m (depth) to setup, but we can often fit into smaller spaces than this. If you think the space at your venue is smaller than our recommendation, get in touch and we’ll let you know if we can squeeze in.

How do I book?

Head to our Get A Quote page and get a quote with us. You’ll receive a link to our booking form in our reply. It’s a quick form that takes around 5 minutes to fill in. It supplies us with all the details we need from you, and then you’re booked!

Do you require a booking fee/deposit?

We ask for a small booking fee of between 20 and 25% to secure dates in our diary, this will all be automatically calculated by our booking form.

When do you require the final balance paying?

Your final balance isn’t due until 2 weeks before your event, so there’s plenty of breathing space between booking and performing.

Do you have a rider?

We wish we could be rock stars and ask for a bowl of green M&M’s. Unfortunately that’s probably pushing the boat out a bit! We simply ask for access to food that’s available to sustain ourselves through the evening, and a small tab for soft drinks at the bar.

Not so serious questions…

What else do you do?

Most of us teach music throughout the week. Our life revolves around music, pretty much!

How old are you? You all look about 12!

Woah, why thank you! We’re actually a little older – we go from 26 to 37 within the group.

Have you ever been on X Factor?

Never! Only 3 of us can sing and none of us can dance, so it wouldn’t be advisable.

Do you play your own stuff?

Playing music is our job (a pretty awesome job!). Between gigging and rehearsing we don’t tend to find much time to write any music ourselves unfortunately, but maybe one day!
