Involving You In Choosing Songs
We want you to be totally happy with the songs that we play at your event. We welcome the opportunity to learn new numbers, so if you have any special requests, please feel free to discuss them with us when booking your event. We take pride in the fact that we're flexible and adaptable.
Value for Money
We are all enthusiastic about performing good music, so we simply aim to cover our costs.
We put a lot of thought in to our planning, and we aim to please! Before your event, we'll take the time to discuss how we can tailor our performance to best suit your individual requirements. We will carefully plan out every step of the event from timings to staging to ensure that your are happy, and that your audience leave satisfied.
On the day, we'll need about an hour and a half to set-up, and it's a good idea to allow more time than this for a proper sound and lighting check. We will need to be able to unload safely, and relatively close to the performance area. Nearby parking for four cars will then be required. We'll need at least two reliable 13-amp power sockets near the stage. Don't forget that if you want us to play late, you'll need to allow time with the venue for us to pack everything away afterwards.
We have a fair, reasonable, and common-sense approach. If you're interested in the fine print, please click here to view our 'Booking Terms and Conditions'.

- On the day of your event, we'll use good, reliable professional audio kit which includes items by: Electro-voice (EV), DBX, Celestion, Beyer Dynamic, Van Damme, Planet Waves, Gretsch, Zildjian, Fender, Yamaha, Wharfedale, Laney, Marshall, EBS, Korg, Trace Elliot, Mark Bass, AKG, Shure, K&M, Neutrik, and disco lighting by Prolight.
Our full, state-of-the-art 2KW PA system suits most venues. If you let us know in advance, we'll be happy to set up an announcement mic if required, and you can even connect your i-pod or portable music player to the system to act as a convincing 'disco' to thump out your favourite tracks between sets (headphone socket, 1/4" jack output(s) or phono connection required). All of our gear is PAT tested annually, regularly serviced and visually checked before use. We'll always take back-up kit so in the unlikely event that the worst happens, your gig can continue without interuption. We are insured for public liability.
