Can I play my own recorded music and playlists in between?

Yes! Absolutely! If you would like to put your own music on once our PA is set up, between sets and after until 1 am then you can connect an Iphone, Ipad or Ipod to our equipment. Please note we also include FREE Filler music during these times also as part of our service, so the vibe doesn't drop between sets and thers no awkward silences etc.

Can you play outside?

Simply, yes we can we just have a few stipulations for our and your safety. We would need: A level, stable playing surface in an area that is covered from the elements. Should it rain our equipment needs to be safe! Playing on a grassy heath with no cover in wind is a big health and safety no no!

Will you learn a special song for our first dance?

Playing an existing recording for your first dance is already included free of charge but if you wanted the band to learn this and play it live, we would be honoured! We would need to know this at least 3 months in advance.

Do you take requests?

As a rule, no. We are an experienced band that has worked extensively to create the perfect rock and roll sound track to keep you and your guests dancing all night long. However if there is a song or two within this genre that we do not already play and would suit the style then these will be considered at the bands discretion and need 6 months notice please.

We have and are covered for up to £10,000,000. We are happy to provide a copy of the certificate should you or your venue need it. All of our equipment is also PAT tested regularly.

What happens in between your sets and before and after?

We include FREE Filler music  in all of our quotations during these times , so the vibe doesn't drop between sets and thers no awkward silences etc. However if you wish to put your own playlists on we can do this also, we just need your music device, such as an ipad, iphone or ipod etc. We also offer a DJ service for after our live sets finish to keep the party going. this is an additional cost but is discounted when booked with any of our live music packages. The DJ will also take any song requests you or your guests may have on the night.
