FAQ'S | East Midlands' #1 Wedding Band

How Much Do You Charge?

Because of the vast range of circumstances we have to take in to account (travel, dates, size of venue, PA requirements etc...) we do not have a fixed price. However, our prices do start from as little as £900. Please get in touch via email and we will give you an accurate quote within 12 hours - This email address is being protected from spambots.

Do I Get A Discount For My Charity Event?

We do! We are always willing to support good causes when we possibly can! Since our formation, we're proud to have raised over £25,000 for lots of amazing causes. Any registered charity is entitled to an automatic 10% discount when they choose us for their special event!

How Many Are In The Band?

Normally we have 6 members but on some occasions we may go out as a 5 piece depending on availability and size of the stage.

How Long Does Set Up Take You?

About 25-35 minutes ordinarily - Much less than most bands!

Do You Carry Lighting & PA Equipment?

Yes, we carry a high end quality sound system which is loud enough to fill most wedding and party venues for numbers of up to 350 and we also provide standard stage and disco lighting. We aren’t able to bring our own stage but we are perfectly happy to play on the floor.

What Kind Of Power Do You Need?

We're one of only a few bands that can run our system off normal 13amp plug sockets so 99.9% of venues both indoor and out, can cope with us.

Are Noise Limiters An Issue?

They're not ideal but unlike most bands, if we need to, we can turn our drummer down as he has an electric kit he uses on occasions when we have limited space or need to be particularly sensitive with volume! We have yet to have any major problems with noise limiters!

Can I Spread The Payments?

You certainly can! You can either pay with our standard terms which is 50% deposit and 50% 28 days before the wedding or spread the cost using an interest free payment plan. Please ask for details and we'll be as flexible as we can.

Are You Insured?

We certainly are! Most our hotel venues insist upon it so we have £10,000,000 public liability insurance.

Will Your Equipment Have PAT Certificates?

Yes and we’re happy to email them to the venue in before the event with our insurance!

Do You Do Requests?

In the case of first dance songs, we’ll always try our upmost but can't promise to meet every single requirement. If we can't we’ll make sure it's played on CD! If time is available to us and the song is appropriate for the style of our musicians then we'll give it a good go. But we won't make promises as we’d hate to disappoint if it doesn't work! As you can imagine, playing as many shows as we do, we aren't able to learn requests for each but if we can, we will :)

Do You Have Any Other Requirements?

As of 2015, we no longer need accommodation as we have a fully fitted, custom built tour bus complete with beds.  Allll that we require is some drinks (to keep the vocal chords going) and a small amount of food, which usually means letting us join you for your buffet. We’re a very low maintenance group, we promise!!
