What Time Do We Quote From?
Our prices are quoted from 6pm. If you require us to arrive earlier than that there is an additional fee, this is because some of us play in other ensembles through the day and we will lose income (it's our job).
How Do You Pay Us?
We accept bank transfer before the event or cash on the day.
What Type Of Venue Is Best?
It's tempting to pick a venue for many reasons that are actually not condusive to a good live music sound. For example large open spaces with high ceilings and lots of glass are awful environments for live bands.
If the live music is super important to you we highly recommend a small space with low ceilings, lots of furnishings and very small amounts of glass and metal.
Size matter too for lots of reasons. It is far better to have a small filled venue than a large half empty one, which just looks sad.
So in summary, go for a venue that you can fill, without high ceilings and minimal reflective surfaces.
Do We Play For Free Ever?
Nope, never, sorry this is our job, and we don't need "the exposure" 🙂
Is A Deposit Required?
Yes, we charge a 10% non refundable deposit by bank transfer (N/A for pubs).
How Long Do We Play For?
We play for two hours, this can be two sets or one continuous set, which is often better if you want a full on boogie.
How Much Time Do We Need To Set Up?
We need access to the venue two hours before we start to play in order to set up and sound check.
Do We Have All The Equipment Required?
Yes we have our own PA system and also lights, and a smoke machine.
Can You Use The Sound Equipment Already Installed At A Venue?
We don’t like to do this, so usually say no. We have our own sound and wouldn’t be able to guarantee our sound without our own equipment, plus those places often utilise unrealistic sound level meters - our strong advise is not to use those if you require live music.
Do You Play Pubs?
Yes we do play a select few pubs, when we are not busy with weddings and parties. Our facebook page details our concert dates.
