ANSWERS

QUESTIONS &

How much do you cost?


Each event is different and so prices vary depending on a whole list of factors. However, we are cheaper than the competition and offer more for your money! Send us a quote request and you’ll be happily surprised!




What's included as standard?


Everything!

  • 2 X 1 Hour Sets Of Live Back-To-Back 80s Hits
  • Our Full 4000W QSC PA System
  • A Fully Programed 34 Fixture Lighting Rig inc Smoke, Lasers, Strobes, Blinders, UV Lights And 12 Moving Beams!
  • LED Lit State Of The Art Drum Kit
  • LED Lit Keytar
  • PLUS ... Pre mixed DJ style music during the interval and after our set, up to 12 midnight!**
**Only included for evening events where the band set finishes at 10:30 or later.




Do you mind where you perform?


Not at all! However, ** we do ask that if we’re performing outdoors, that you provide a roof over our heads and walls behind us and to both sides, to protect us and our gear from the elements. Unexpected rain can and has happened, and is VERY expensive without protection. We also highly recommend putting us in the same room as the bar. Trust us, this can make or break an event! :)




What are your set times?


We perform 2 x 1 hour sets of non-stop party music with a half hour to 1 hour break in between sets. All of our bookings are quoted for with a start time no earlier that 7:00pm and a 12:00 midnight finish as we need to pack down and get to our next performance. If you need us to finish later, let us know within your quote request.




How loud are you?


Due to the very latest technology we employ, we are able to perform at volumes suitable for up to around 1000 people, or we can turn right down to speech level and sound exactly the same! Even the drums get turned down, but still sound just as powerful!!




How much time do you need to set up?


We ask for no less than 2 hours to set up and sound check. This ensures we're fully set up, sound checked and changed into our finest performance clothes with time to spare. However, if time is limited to less than 2 hours, then just let us know when you enquire and we'll see what we can do! :)




How much stage space do you require?


The bigger the better! However, we require a minimum of 5 meters width by 3.5 meters depth to fit in our lights, PA, drums and 3 front men. If you're space is limited to less than this, let us know and we will see what we can do to accomodate.




How many power sockets do you need?


We require at least 4 reliable power sockets located on the stage/performance area. So these need to be individual sockets on the wall, not a 4 way extension lead coming from one socket.




** OUR REQUIREMENTS **


  • Minimum Stage size/performance area: 5 meters wide & 3.5 meters deep.

  • A minimum of 4 reliable wall power sockets (not a 4 way).

  • Two free parking spaces, one of which is located at the door to the performance venue, so we can unload the van.

  • A clear path from the loading in doors to the stage area. Some of our gear is large and heavy, so we’d rather not be wresting with tables or trying to squeeze through crowds while carrying it! ;)

  • We will require a dedicated room for the band. Somewhere warm and dry for us to hang around in throughout the day, get changed in and eat in etc.

  • We will need to be fed and watered! (Standard contract thing for these kind of events). We will have likely driven a good few hours and we work a very long, hard day, so we’ll need fueling up with some good hot food, preferably long before we go on or during a 1 hour break, so our food has time to go down. We don’t want to be eating and then immediately jumping around and trying to sing with a belly full of curry!

  • Please can you also ensure free water and soft drinks are made available to us...else we may pass out during the show! :D Thanks!

** Please note, these requirements are stipulated within all of our booking contracts.




Do you play requests?


Due to the way we run the set with fully programmed lights, programmed guitar sound changes, keyboard sound changes and even automated mixing desk changes, we're unable to do the whole 'juke box band' thing and customise our set for each event. Further more, since our sets have no gaps between songs and medley perfectly from one song to the next, we have to learn how and when each segway occurs. As a result, slotting in a new song is not only technically very difficult and time consuming, but it also fries our little brains, as we've learnt the 'set' as a whole. To see a full list of the songs we play and the order we play them in, see our set lists by clicking here. We do provide a free unmanned DJ service for both between and after our sets up to midnight in which you can pre-arrange to have some requests included. Please note: this is an unmanned DJ service, so no-one will be DJ-ing throughout the night, it's a playlist which we pre-arrange and mix before your event. We have several playlists to choose from, ranging from 70s to the latest hits, so weather you want 80s dancefloor fillers or more modern party anthems, we've got them all!




Do we need to provide food and drinks for you?


Ohhh my favorite question!! :) Yes please!! We are a full time band, so we go away each week and perform at anything up to 5 events in a row, which means we quite often won't have eaten all day until we get to you. So the meal you provide us with is likely to be the only meal we get to eat all day!....and there's only so much Harribo a man can take! lol With this in mind, each conract includes the requirement for you to provide us with 4 cooked meals and free soft drinks throughout our time at your event.




Will you learn our first dance?


Yes, we can certaintly learn and perform your first dance, or if you prefer to have the original record played, we can play the original mp3 through our DJ software. To learn and perform a first dance, we charge an additional £50. This is more of a token fee and doesn't represent the many hours of programming, learning and rehearsing that we each put into preparing a new song. Please note that due to high demand and time restrictions, we require a minimum of 90 days notice to learn a first dance, plus we have to assess our workload and schedule before agreeing to learn a track. These are all pretty standard requirements for any band, but other bands just aren't as open about it as we are! ;) For full information, please read our section about FIRST DANCES.
