What We'll Do At Your Wedding

Arrival, set up and soundcheck

We will discus with you prior to your event when the best time to arrive is. If the band setup is required earlier than standard we can make arrangements if specifically requested. We set up fast and efficiently but always arrive with plenty of time to set up and soundcheck. We are flexible with working around you and your event.

After set up

After we have set up all of our equipment and soundchecked, we can explain how to use our on stage microphones (or off stage if required) provide background music from our own PA system and if requested can play a playlist of background music, specifically requested by you.

1st live set

We can start with your special song for the first dance in any genre if requested, or if preferred the original track can be played through our speaker system before we kick off and get everyone dancing. Our first set is always electric and eclectic so there is something for everyone to join in, get singing and move their feet! We usually like to recommend 2 x 60 minute sets to keep people involved up and dancing, but will still make the performance great and get the crowd dancing for 3 x 40 minute sets if preferred. Whatever is best for you work – we can make it work. Be sure to expect a magical performance!

2nd live set & end of the night

During the interval we will keep the party going with background music and the second set is designed to give everyone a night to remember. This includes classic songs to sing along to and a consistent upbeat feel. Our standard finish is midnight (later finishing times can be requested in our premium package) and we provide background music from our speaker system until the end of the night. After the night is over: we pack down very quickly, discretely and efficiently.
