What We'll Do At Your Event

Arrival, set up and soundcheck

Upon arrival we'll liaise with the venue/event manager and load in, set up and sound check as quickly and as discretely as possible. This takes approximately 80 minutes, 20 minutes of which are for 'sound check' which involves us playing live, full volume, in order to balance the sound and get the best possible live sound in your specific venue.

We are happy to arrive and set up before your guests but we charge an early arrival fee per hour before 5pm if you've booked our standard service.

1st live set

After our first live set, we'll take a break and for weddings, this is the ideal time to serve the buffet. During this time we'll leave a play list of carefully chosen music running in the background through our PA system. At this time we’re also happy to take requests if you’d like a specific song played.

After set up

After we've set up and sound checked we will put background music on through our PA system and go to change into our stage clothes, and this is usually when we'll eat. You will need to arrange for the venue to provide us with a secure changing room (not the toilets), and your catering to provide us with a hot meal and soft drinks/tea/coffee. This is standard for all wedding/corporate/party bookings for any band. If we can't eat before the first set (EG: the event is behind schedule and we need to perform right away) - then we'll eat during our first break.

2nd live set & end of the night

After our second live performance, if we have finished before midnight, we will provide background music until midnight (unless you've selected a later finish upgrade). Only after our official contracted finish time will we pack our equipment down. We will do this as quickly and discretely as possible - which usually takes around 1 hour.

 

If you have any other questions or would like to discuss things with us in greater detail, please feel free to get in touch with our agents on 0845 108 5500, who will be more than happy to discuss your entertainment requirements.
