We booked the band because I really liked their demo videos, and as a lot of our friends are professional musicians, wanted to have a band with powerful voices. We were so happy with our choice! The band sounded brilliant, the songs in their repertoire were really appropriate, and, most importantly, they sounded and looked great. The other good thing about the band was how easy they were to communicate with and how responsive they were. Our every interaction with them was super professional. We were so happy with our choice.Natasha Porter, Wedding, December 2015

What a night! We were playing guess the song. Ewan your musical director was lovely and they all seemed to enjoy the evening. I would hire them again in a flash! The entire process was hassle free. The guests were impressed by the duet. Lee-Ann Diaz, Birthday Party, January 2016

Paul and I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the fantastic job the band did on our wedding day. We had an amazing time and I’m pretty sure I danced to every single song! We had loads of comments saying how good the band was and I would thoroughly recommend you to my friends. Many many thanks for a fantastic job! Rebecca and Paul Sanders, Wedding, October 2015

The day was brilliant and so were the band. Claire and Najwa were so good. So glad we booked you. There were many comments on how good the band were. We enjoyed every minute and seemed to get a great reaction from the crowd! Laura Williams, Wedding, October 2015

Thank you so much for Thursday evening, you guys went down really well. We would 100% use you again. Julie Leggatt, Corporate Awards Ceremony, October 2015

The singer that came was absolutely fantastic and knew how to work the crowd, so much so that everyone was aching the next day due to the fact that they didn’t want to leave the dance floor with the great songs that she kept singing!!Gina Grasso, Wedding, May 2015


How long do you take to set-up?
The minimum set up time required is 60 minutes. However it's best to schedule in 90 minutes to mitigate any unforeseen issues that might arise. The band will work quickly to set up and sound check as soon as possible. Sound checking is very important for us as it means we'll be able to avoid poor sound quality, feedback, and other technical sound issues which could arise throughout the performance. A good sound check means you'll get a great performance. 

What time do you play?
Any time to suit you, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, anytime between 6pm and 1am inside Greater London, or between 6pm and midnight outside Greater London

How long do you play for?
We’re flexible! Usually we do 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets in the evening and can provide either a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) or a crossfading bespoke playlist designed by you before, in-between and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking. We can also perform up to 2 hours’ worth of an acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.

Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Yes – all included in the price.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

Will you perform our first dance?
Yes, as long as we have two weeks’ notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.

How much space do you require?
4 piece – 3 x 3m please!

How much power do you require?
2 x 13 amp sockets is fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?
All the hard work the band puts in from traveling to your venue, setting up, and working well into the night makes the band quite hungry and thirsty! So they would very much appreciate being fed and watered either before their performance or during a break. They don't expect a 3 course meal, and they won't drink on the job if you don’t want them to, but it's true that a happy band always results in a happy performance. 

Can we add a musician or have a smaller band?
Of course! We flex our line up to suit stage sizes and budgets whether that means adding or subtracting band members to get you the perfect fit. Our normal line up is a 4 piece band - 1 vocalist, keys, bass, drums, with backing vocals.

We are based in London, and are happy to travel to any gig within Greater London for free. We are always happy to travel further afield for a performance, and we do frequently travel outside of London for shows. We have set fees to cover our travel expenses and overnight accommodation if required. 

Choosing Songs
One of the things we pride ourselves on is our repertoire which has 195 songs in it spanning multiple genres. And what’s more is you get to pick exactly what you want to here. In a standard 2 hour set we cover 32 songs. Once you book the band we encourage you to pick your favourites from the repertoire and leave the ordering up to our musical director to create medleys and flow within the set. We’ve been doing this for a few years now and know what works well on the dancefloor.

If you’d rather hand the reins over to us that’s more than fine, or if you’d like you can use the traffic light system where you highlight which songs into green, amber and red categories and leave the design up to our musical director.

Band Members Falling Sick
As a working band, we work with a roster of official 'deps' or understudies ready to step in at a moment’s notice should an unforeseen circumstance occur. They are professional well-rehearsed musicians representing the best talent out there, and for this reason we can guarantee the quality of our performance will not falter. Therefore you can be safe in the knowledge that if a band member falls ill we will be able to have another member of our collective step in seamlessly.

Sound Limiters
We can work with sound limiters! We have a few tricks up our sleeves for making sure you and your guests still get a slamming performance without cutting the power via the sound limiter. We can go acoustic, meaning we can have drums replaced by cajon or the drummer can use a smaller kit and even use feathered drumsticks or hot rods to reduce the decibel level. We can even use an electric drum kit if necessary, where we can literally turn down the volume of the loudest instrument (the drums). We can also have guitar and bass use less wattage for their amps and go acoustic if needed. We’ve dealt with sound limiters up and down the country and can confidently say a sound limiter won’t be a problem.
