What We'll Do At Your Event

Arrival, set up and soundcheck

Once we arrive at your venue at 6pm, we'll unload our vehicle and set up our instruments, lights, sound system etc in our performance area.

Loading in can increase the overall set up time (1.5hrs) if access to the stage area is trickier than a simple ground floor load in.

After set up

Now all 8 of us are set up, soundchecked and the stage is set, we'll put on a playlist of background music and leave the performance area until it's time to come out and entertain you and your guests.

During this period between sets we expect to have a private room where we can eat, drink (please provide a meal and soft drinks for us) and change into our stage attire.

If you've upgraded to have a cocktail pianist play, this slot will obviously be a good time for that.

1st live set

Our first hour long live set will begin at the agreed time (usually around 9pm). We'll then perform a number of songs from our vast repertoire. Because our repertoire is so varied, we like to know what style of music you want us to play before we even arrive, whether it's funk, soul, disco or all styles!

Once we've finished our first set we can put the background music back on, or if you've upgraded we can invite our DJ to fill in before we come back out for the second set.

2nd live set & end of the night

Normally, at around 11pm, we'll come back out for our final energetic hour of live party music, but other times can be arranged.

Once we've completed our performances, we'll mix and mingle with the crowd before packing away, which will take us around 1 hour.

We're a curtious band, so before leaving we'll come and find you, the organisers or the bride and groom, to thank you for booking us before bidding you best wishes and farewell!
