What We'll Do At Your Event

Arrival, set up and soundcheck

We will arrive in plenty of time to introduce ourselves and set up before your evening event. We work very closely with each event organiser to ensure that everything runs smoothly and your big day is as stress-free as possible. Being professional performers and veterans of many formal occasions, we know how important time keeping is, and are able to set up quickly, quietly and efficiently. We’ll run a short soundcheck to ensure that our sound system and instruments are in tip top shape for your party, and make sure our lighting is ready to dazzle!

After set up & soundcheck

After dressing the stage and doing a quick sound-check, we will head off to our dressing room (arranged in advance of the day) to suit up in our stage attire so we look the part for the show. Our PA and lighting systems will be in place to use for speeches, announcements and to accommodate the DJ or background music to get your party warmed up!

1st live set & break

As standard we perform two hours worth of live music for your evening's entertainment. This is usually in the format of 2 x 1 hour sets OR 3 x 40 minute sets. However, the evening’s schedule is completely up to you, and with a little notice we are able to tailor our sets to accommodate your plans. We don’t want to clash with the food being served either, as this may restrict people’s capacity to dance! Just let us know what time any food will be out and we’ll work around this.

2nd live set & end of the night

Our second (or third, depending on what package and format you choose) set will be followed by either background music or a DJ set from one of the band (again, depending upon the package you have chosen) to finish off the night while the rest of us discreetly pack away. We usually finish everything by midnight, but extensions to this are available if arranged in advance.
