Q: What songs are in your setlist?
A: Loads! Click here to see a sample of what we perform. All songs are carefully chosen to appeal to a broad range of people but new songs are always being worked on and added to the list once they are fully rehearsed so don't be put off if you cannot see your own personal favourite, please ask and provided that it is within our genre of music we will always look to see if we can add it to our repertoire, we are always up for a challenge!
Q: Can I request a song to be played at my event?
A: Providing the band have enough time to fully rehearse the requested song and it is within our genre of music (Soul, Motown, Disco & Funk), we will do our best to accommodate any reasonable request.
Q: How much does it cost to hire you?
A: This varies on location and timings, feel free to email us with your details and we will send you a no obligation quote.
Q: Can we see you perform before booking you?
A: You are more than welcome to come along and meet the band and watch us rehearsing at one of our regular rehearsal evenings or come to any of our public gigs. Alternatively, click on this link and it will take you to our website video page where you can watch us performing on our promo videos.
Q: How much space do you need?
A: Despite being a large band we can adapt our line up to suit most venues and you would be surprised at the venues that we have managed to get into! As a planning guide a minimum area of 5 x 3.5m (5m frontage) for the band and an additional area of 1.5 x 1.5 metres at the back of the venue for our mixing desk and sound&lighting engineer. Please see our technical information guide for specifications.
Q: What are the power requirements?
A: Ideally 4 x 13amp power sockets are required on the performance area, plus a 13amp power socket at the rear of the venue for our sound engineer (for outside generators the band equipment and lighting will draw a maximum of 11 amps). All of our equipment is professionally PAT tested (Portable Appliance Testing certificate) and we hold a Public Liability Insurance to the value of £5,000,000.
Q: How long does it take to setup and pack up at the end of the event?
A: Dependant on access to the performance area we will plan on being setup and sound checked within 90 mins. This can be pre-planned into your event so that we would cause as little disruption as possible. The pack up at the end of the event on average takes approximately 45 minutes.
Q: Are there any specific requirements?
A: During the performances there are many costume changes therefore we request that a changing room be made available suitable for 11 band members preferably close to the performance area.
Q: Do you come with your own lighting?
A: We come completely self contained and all stage sound and lighting is provided within the price quoted.
Q. Can you perform in venues that have Sound Limiting systems installed?
A: We can perform at certain venues with these installed provided that there are certain assurances and agreements by the venue. Please click on this link which will explain more.
Q: Do you have different size line ups?
A: There are other bands that will go out as smaller outfits however, a smaller band cannot reproduce the same 'soulful' experience and quality of music of a full line up of 10 musicians and therefore will likely resort to using backing tracks or recorded music to fill in the gaps. We are totally live.............. say no more!
