Frequently Asked Questions
What time do you arrive and leave?
Our standard arrival time is 6.30pm and we’re then all yours until 12.30am. For a small additional hourly rate, we can arrive earlier of finish later if you wish. Just get in touch and make sure we’re available to do so.
How much do you cost?
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 use the contact page to request a quotation via email.
How many are in the band?
There are four of us in the band? Our lineup consists of a singer, bassist, guitarist and drummer. We also use some live tracks to allow us to create a bigger sound with brass and synths in the same way that professional chart bands do!
How long does it take you to get all your equipment setup?
Our new setup takes approximately 40 minutes. That’s from the time we get access to the venue to the time we’ve finished sound check and are ready to start the disco.
Do you learn requests?
We invariably choose their live set on the night, as we go, according to the crowd in front of us. This allows us to use our expertise and experience to pack your dancefloor. That said, nearer the time, if you drop our manager an email, he’ll send you over the current repertoire list and you’d be welcome to choose a few favourites from there and we’ll do our best to include them. In respect of the disco set, you’re very welcome to fire some songs over in advance and we’ll make sure that they’re all on the playback system and included during the course of the night if they’re not already on there.
Do we have to provide sound or lighting equipment?
No. We are completely self contained. You don’t need to provide anything other than a good electrical supply for us to plug our equipment into. We carry an industry standard PA system and a range of LED lighting so that the stage and dancefloor area is lit and looks great!
Can you play at venues that have noise limiters?
Yes. In honesty, they’re not ideal but we’ve found that more and more venues now have them installed so we’ve learned to deal with them. What’s important is that we know in advance so we can make sure the equipment that we bring is geared for a venue with a limiter.
What payment methods do you accept?
You can pay your balance by either Card or Bank Transfer. Our standard payment terms are a 50% deposit with the balance being due 28 days before the wedding. We do also offer two different payment plans which allow you to spread the cost of the booking into either monthly payments or into 4 equal payments between the date of confirmation and the month prior to the wedding. These are completely interest free and because it’s a payment plan rather than credit, doesn’t require a credit search or affect your Experian rating.
Do you have insurance?
We certainly do! We have Public Liability Insurance for £5m which is the standard requirement for most venues.
Do we have to provide anything else?
The only other requirement that we have is that you arrange for some food for us either in the break between our sets or before we go on stage. It doesn’t need to be ellaborate; just something like a tray of sandwiches is fine. Most people just let us join their evening food which is fine! The only other thing we ask for is some soft drinks. Either 8 cans of Diet Coke or Bottled Water.
