What We Do At Your Event

We provide live music to suit all ages. We aim to keep your dance floor full all night, no matter what age range your guests and no matter the style of the event.

We have excellent quality equipment and will provide lights and interval music via laptop all included in our standard price.

See our repertoire for the full list of songs that we play. We focus on the rock and pop genre and cover everything from the Beatles to the Killers. As well as electric shows we can also cover an acoustic show for pre-dinner or a more chilled out evening event.

What We'll Do At Your Event

Arrival, set up and soundcheck

Once we arrive at your venue at 18:00, we'll come and find someone to let them know we've arrived, say our hellos and immediately unload our gear, set up and begin to sound check. It is important we check our levels in your venue at full volume so when we come to perform in front of the audience, everything sounds great and how it should be!

Altogether, this first stage takes 60-90 minutes to complete.

We are more than happy to arrive and set up before your guests arrive, but we do charge an extra early arrival fee (per hour) before 6pm if you've booked our standard service.

After the 1st live set

Having warmed up the crowd, and hopefully made you all hungry - this is the perfect time to serve the buffet, we'll retire to our dressing room to have something to eat and drink.

Once both you and we've had a rest and had some refreshments, which should take 45 minutes, we'll be ready to get back on stage at 22:00 or 22:30 to start the 2nd and final live set of rock and pop dance music.

After set up

Now we have set up and checked our levels in the room, we will go and get changed into our stage attire and have something to eat in our changing room. We expect that you will have arranged a secure space for the band to gather in during the times before, between and after our performances. Please don't expect us to change or eat in the toilets...

2nd live set & end of the night

So by now we've completely tired the crowd out, they've screamed for more, we gave them more and it's time for the final chord. 

Once we've finished our final set of the night, it's likey we'll have a quick chat with members of the audience and have a glass of water before starting to pack down our equipment. However, if you have booked us for the late finish (1am) we'll DJ music until the end, then pack away. (60mins)

Once everything is in the van we'll say our thanks and good nights and be on our way!
