What We'll Do At Your Event


Arrival, Set Up & Soundcheck

Upon arrival the band will communicate with the venue / event organiser and load in, setup and sound check. This will be done as efficiently and discretely as possible. Setup takes approximately 70 minutes with 10 minutes for a sound check. Where possible the sound check will involve playing at full volume in order to get the best possible live sound in your 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.


After Set Up

After the setup and sound check the band will put on background music for you and your guests. You will need to organise with the venue or event staff for a secure changing room for the band the change in to their stage clothes. It would also be great for your catering staff to provide us with a hot meal and soft drinks (either after setup or during the bands break). This is standard for all party bookings for any band.


1st Dance / Live Set

We usually start the first live set with the first dance, but this is not set-in-stone.

After the first set we will take a break. This is usually an ideal time to serve the evening buffet. The band will happily leave a party playlist of carefully chosen music running through the PA so that your audience can remain up and dancing on the dance floor.


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.
