Please select your date from the calendar below, hang tight, it may take a few seconds to load!
If your date does not appear, please email firstname.lastname@example.org directly to check our availability.
We totally get it, Covid has meant having to consider every possibility!
When you book our bands you pay a non-refundable booking fee. This fee allows us to reserve your date and start preparing the logistics ahead of your big day.
If you have to move your wedding date we will not charge you any extra, and as long as we are available for your new date we will book it in!
If you have to cancel your wedding or move it to a date when we do not have availability, we do not charge any additional cancellation fees.
Our signature package is designed to provide you with the perfect amount of live music for an amazing party.
However, you may want a completely bespoke service for your event.
For example, afternoon music, longer set times, an early start, a late finish or learning additional songs to name but a few options!
If you would prefer a bespoke booking, please get in touch and we will be very happy to discuss your requirements.
Of course we do! We always learn one new song for you (first dance or not).
For further song requests that are not already in our repertoire, there may be a charge of £40 per song.
This is to cover some of the time needed for our musicians to create a suitable arrangement, learn the song and rehearse it as a band.
The best thing is to dicuss it with us and we’ll let you know if its something we can do.
For other events we are happy to learn one new song for your party.
Yes! The musicians you book will be the musicians who perform, except in unforeseen circumstances such as illness in which case another member of our team of musicians will fill the gap.
What we are not is a huge faceless agency that sends a random group musicans to perform.
We have quality of musicians and bands over quantity.
Intervals between live sets are a minimum of 20 minutes to allow our musicians and your guests to re-energise and rehydrate before the next performance.
Intervals can be extended to fit with your schedule, please discuss this option with us before the event.
We understand that events do not always run to time, if this happens on your day our musicians will do their best to accommodate you.
Yes, of course!
You can provide a complete playlist, or you can tell us what type of music you enjoy and we curate the DJ playlist around your musical taste. Or you can just leave it 100% to us!
We have a tight and well-rehearsed set up so that our bands can sound check and be ready to play with minimal fuss.
Our full party bands normally need 90 minutes to unload, set up and soundcheck.
The band will need access to water throughout the afternoon and/or evening.
Please let us know if this is something your event cannot accommodate.
You do not need to provide food!
Certainly not! We love love and we love being a part of a wedding day.
But we also provide live music for birthday parties, festive parties, charity fundraisers, corporate events, awards dinners, formal gatherings, garden parties, drinks receptions and beyond!
Our musicians have played at all sorts of events including major UK music festivals, Cambridge May Balls and with international touring artists.
A variety of professional performance experience is what makes our musicians so good!
Ideally yes. Our musicians will need a private area to change, wait between sets and store their personal belongings.
Most venues will have a spare room with access to electrical sockets and seating, which is perfect for the band to use.
Please note that toilets or tents are not suitable changing and storage areas, BUT the band can usually cope with prior warning!
Please let us know if this is going to be the case before the date.
Whenever you ask us to!
Normally we would arrive an hour and half before a full band performance to load in equipment and sound check.
We are happy to discuss your personal requirements should you need us to arrive earlier.
Sure thing! We totally get it, you want to hear the band play live before you book.
Luckily we have a studio in Cambridge just for that. If you want to meet the band before taking the next step just let us know.
Alternatively you can always pop into the studio after booking the band, for a chat and taster before your big day!
We need a minimum of 2 separate 13 amp sockets.
If you need to specify further details, please advise that our PA system and lighting use approximately 2.5kw and a single 16amp power supply is not sufficient.
We are happy to liaise directly with your venue or your planner about power requirements if you prefer.
Yes, we provide all necessary sound, lighting and PA equipment.
We don’t like seeing a stage full of mismatched speakers and cables, so we have crafted our setup to be compact, stylish and unobtrusive.
Many venues are required to comply with particular restrictions with regards to sound levels.
We are certainly able to perform within reasonable volume limits, and this is something we consciously rehearse.
We do ask that you inform us that a sound limiter is fitted at the time of booking – please check with your venue if this is the case.
