FAQs

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 seven days before the event.

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 and Contract Required?

Yes, we charge a 20% non-refundable deposit by bank transfer to secure all bookings, along with a contract for the event.

How is it best to time things?

Well every event is slightly different from the last but there is a a rough timing guide that you could follow if you choose. One thing we do suggest is not to have the band playing during buffets or other sections where an audience may prefer a slightly quieter atmosphere.

A good guide to timings are as follows:

Arrival 6pm to be set up and soundchecked by 7:30
Background/DJ music from 7:30 until 8:30 Live set 1 from 8:30 until 9:30
Background/DJ music from 9:30 until 10:45 Live set 2 from 10:45 until 11:45 with encores or DJ music until midnight

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.

Can I pick the bands playlist?

We are more than happy for you to have as little or as much input into the bands playlist. All we ask is to remember that we have been reading audiences for years and years so if we can have some artistic license to ensure that we keep everyone dancing that would be great!

Are the videos on your website a true reflection of the band?

The videos on the website reflect the band very well. We do however sometimes use different female vocalists, brass players and musicians as we have a pool of incredible session musicians that play with us on a regular basis.

Will you learn our special song?

We will learn one song free of charge and then every other is chargeable due to the time it takes!

Can I see you play live?

As you can imagine this can sometimes be pretty tricky but we do endeavour to keep our clients up to date with any public performances but we mainly do corporate and wedding parties which have a strict invite only policy. We do however have plenty of promotional material for you to see us perfom.

Where will you travel to?

We will travel anywhere in the world. Our band members have played as far as America and Dubai and as close as our next door neighbours wedding so just let us know where to be and we will be there.

How do I book you?

Just send us an enquiry using our booking for and we will get back to you with all the details you need.

Are you able to DJ in between sets?

Yes we are indeed. If you would like an actual DJ we can sort this or we also offer a band member DJ service this is charged additionally.

Can we make DJ requests in advance to my event?

This is the best way to do things if we can get a list of disco material you would like played we can set this up in advance.

Can we use your sound system for speeches?

This is not a problem we don’t however carry wireless mics so you would need to stand by the bands set up.

What equipment do you use?

We have a huge amount of equipment but just for you we are going to list it all…

Drums - Yamaha Maple custom Hybrid drum kit (all Frosty ever talks about)

Guitar - Tobacco Sunburst Fender Stratocaster electric guitar Gibson Les Paul electric guitar for the swing stuff if booked, fender Hotrod Deluxe Tube Amplifier, large pedal board.

Bass - Mark Bass amp and cab (a lovely rumble) USA Fender Jazz bass guitar

Keys - Nord Stage 2 and Roland JD

Vocals - all using Shure beta sm58 PA – we have a selection of PA but the most common ones used unless its upgraded for our larger are Alto Sub and Tops rig with Allen and Heath qu 16.

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 venues if you require live music.

Do you have lights?

Again we have a lot of lights but here is the standard lighting package we offer: 2 x 8 multi throw par bars.

How long do you play for?

Normally if booking the standard package we play for 2 x 60 minutes but we are able to increase this for a fee.

What time do you start and finish?

The standard is 7:30 to 12 midnight but again this is all flexible but will incur charges if we are needed for an earlier start or later finish.

Can I provisionally book you?

I am afraid not, the dates sell pretty quick and we work on a first come first served basis to ensure its fair and to make sure we secure as many bookings each year with this being our profession.

A non-refundable deposit secures the booking and the full payment is due 7 days before the event.

What if the band split up before my event?

Don’t panic this wont happen, this is a professional business, but in the event someone is ill or someone does decide to leave the band a suitable replacement will be put in place and we make sure that all the musicians and singers we use are of the same standard and background. We are very lucky to have such a huge pool of incredible session musicians to choose from.

Can my sisters/bosses/daughters dog sing with your band?

We actually love having guest singers join in as long as they can actually sing. We will however check with you first before allowing anyone to sing at your event. If you have a dog that can sing please please bring them along!

Why should I book you?

With every event the entertainment will be something every guest will be talking about for weeks, months even years after. get that right and your event will be one of the best. Booking us will ensure that every guest will leave with a smile on their face and legs that will ache the next day!

How much does it cost to book the band? The best and quickest way to find out is get in touch by filling out the form with all the details of your event and we will give you an instant quote.

How loud will the band be?

We make sure that the people in the room we are playing are still able to have a conversation but at the same time loud enough to create the perfect energy flowing on the dance floor.

What will the band wear?

We will be immaculately presented and will ensure that each member looks super smart. We normally wear suits but if the client prefers a different look just let us know and we can see what we can do.

What is the band power requirement?

2 x 13 amp supplies is normally fine for us as all the equipment we use doesn’t draw huge amounts of power. As a rule 16 amps with the entire rig on should be fine.

What type/size venues are you able to play at?

We are able to play at any type of event regardless of the size. If you are throwing an event or a wedding where you would like a live music then we are more than happy to help create the perfect occasion for you.

Does the band have any specific requirements?

We request a room in which to change, something to eat and drinks for the duration of our time at the venue.

How Much Space Do You Need?

An ideal space would be 6x3 meters but sometimes we understand that there is not enough room for that so we are happy to squeeze in to smaller spaces where needed but do let us know if its really tight so we can bring less equipment to make sure we can fit.

Do we offer any additional services?


We offer a few different services:

- Lounge piano player for the ceremony

- Acoustic duo for ceremony, reception drink and or meal

- Swing band for the daytime or earlier parts of the evening

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.
