Some Frequently Asked Questions

DO WE NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT?

When a booking is confirmed, a small deposit is requested

Do you provide a DJ?

Yes, our DJ is an experienced professional DJ with his own lights and PA

CAN WE ASK FOR A SPECIAL SONG FOR OUR FIRST DANCE?

Yes, indeed, and for the last dance too … and if you’re not sure what to choose, just ask us and we can give you a hand as we’ve found that some songs work really well.

Do you play more old-time stuff, such as waltzes?

We cater for all age groups therefore waltzes, jives etc are part of our set

Are you ok with guests doing some singing themselves?

We are. But we have to make sure that there aren’t too many impromptu singers as this can slow down or disrupt the party. So it’s best to discuss this in advance and let us know possible singers before we start our set, as we might advise limiting their number so as to ensure the programme keeps rocking.

Do you take requests?

Of course. As with impromptu singers, though, our job is to keep people happily dancing and to fill the dancefloor, so we sometimes have to use our discretion when taking requests. A long list of requests can be difficult for a band to manage, and it can limit and disrupt them. We know what works well and can read what kind of music guests enjoy, so – apart from a sensible number of requests –it’s generally best to leave it to them.

How long do you play for?

We play for two and a half hours inclusive of a fifteen minute break to allow the venue to serve refreshments but we can play straight through if you’d prefer.

I see you’re based in the Midlands. Will you come down all the way to Cork city to play a wedding?

Of course we will we’re right at the centre of the country so we’ll sing our way to any corner, from Donegal to Waterford and from Dundalk to Dingle, to add zip and harmony to your wedding. In fact we love playing in new places and meeting new people.

WHEN WILL THE BAND ARRIVE?

We like to arrive at 8pm or we can arrive earlier if requested.

How long will it take the band to set up and sound check?

All done and dusted in 30 minutes.
