Frequently Asked Questions

Need a little more information before booking? Look no further!

How do I confirm my event booking? 

If you would like to book us for your event, please contact us via our form, and we'll send you a booking form to fill in. We will then send you a contract stating our full terms and conditions for you to sign, and we also require a 20% deposit, payable via BACS.


Do you supply a PA system, and lighting?

Yes! We currently use either a Bose L1 system, or a pair of Mackie Thump speakers for all bookings, and have a lighting rig available for evening events. We also have a pair of wireless speakers, perfect for outdoor events where there is no access to power. 


This also means that if you book us to perform at several points during your wedding day, such as your ceremony and drinks reception, we can have two systems set up meaning there's no awkward gap whilst we move our equipment from one location to another. Just plug in, and boom!

Is your equipment PAT tested, and do you have Public Liability Insurance? 

Yes! All our equipment is PAT tested yearly, and we have Public Liability Insurance up to £10 million. Ahead of your event, we'll send across all our certification to either your venue, or you. 

How much space do you require?

We typically require roughly 3m x 3m to ensure we can fit ourselves and our equipment. If we are performing with our lighting rig too, we will require 4m x 4m. 

How long does it take you to set up?

We need a minimum of one hour to load in, set up, and sound check to ensure our performance is of the highest quality for your event! For wedding ceremonies, we will aim to arrive at least an hour and a half before your ceremony is due to start. 

Can we choose the songs you perform? 

Yes! We offer to learn 3 song requests for every booking, 5 if you choose our full daytime package.

Do you charge travel expenses? 

Currently, we charge travel expenses for any events more than 25 miles outside of our home address in Horwich.

Can you supply background music?

We always supply background music between our sets, however, we can offer a playlist service for the remainder of your event for an additional fee. If you choose the playlist service, we'll ask you for a selection of your favourites artists and songs to ensure we handpick the perfect playlist for your event!
