Got a question?

The great thing about hiring us is that we dont take up much space, making us ideal for those smaller venues as well as the larger ones.

We only require a minimum space of 3 metres x 3 metres² with safe & easy access to 1 plug socket.

We only require a 10% deposit to secure your booking.

Certainly! We know special occassions aren’t cheap so if you are booking for a Wedding, Party or Corporate Event we’re happy to offer 4 payments plans.
(As a standard, all options require an initial deposit of 10% to secure the booking.)

 

Standard – pay 10% of the balance as a deposit at the time of booking and the final balance 14 days before the date of the wedding,

4 Part Payment Plan (Interest free!) – pay your balance in 4 equal, instalments, spreading the cost out between now and your big day.

Pay Balance In Full At Time Of Booking – Pay in full at the time of booking so you know it’s all done and dusted.
Depending on distance or timings, we may require accommodation.
If so, we will arrange and it will be included in the price.

Of course! It would be wondeful to meet you in person and show you first hand what we can do. All our upcoming dates can be found on our Facebook page. Just click here and come along!

We normally arrive 1 hour before we are due to start as it doesnt take us any longer than this to set up and sound check. We always allow more time for special occassions, taking traffic and distance into consideration.

We typically offer two options for our customers:
-The first is our beautifully crafted Acoustic duo which offers a romantic, intimate and relaxed vibe. Ideal and incredibly popular for Weddings.
-The second is our Party duo were we perform a high energy, foot-stomping electric set, perfect for your Evening Wedding Reception or party.

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we’re definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

If a song isn’t included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you’d like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc. For our wedding customers we will learn a song FREE of charge for your big day.
