We understand that entertainment is such an important element of your big day, which is why our aim is to make this part of your planning as easy and stress free as possible. Feel free to ask our advice on timings, positioning, sound, size of band and number of sets. We're very experienced and usually know the best way to do things. On the other hand, we're happy to do things your way too.

Questions or concerns

From the moment you decide we’re the right band for you, your entertainment is in good hands. We’ll be in touch around 3 weeks before the big day to finalise the details, timings, song choices and any other queries you may have. In the run up to your wedding, you’ll also have a dedicated event coordinator from our agency, Alive Network. They will be more than happy to liaise with you on any additional issues, questions or concerns.

Arrival, set up and soundcheck

A standard wedding for us will start with us arriving promptly at your venue at around 18:00. We'll meet with the wedding organiser(s) to recieve a short bried - mainly to confirm what times you need us etc. 

Shortly after we'll unload our van of all our equipment and move it to the stage where we will set up.

Soundcheck is next. This is where we all play a song or two at full volume to get the right balance in the room we're playing in (every venue is different). Please ensure the venue doesn't have a soundlimiter that doesn't allow a band to play. We can work with a fairly low limit, just make sure we know before hand (at the booking stage).

Loading in, setting up the stage, including lights, PA and obviously our instruments, and soundcheck takes a total of 1.5 hours.

1st Dance

You can choose to have the band learn your first dance from our repertoire or a completely new song to the band. The only thing we'll say about new songs is: the more notice the better. This is so we have time to practice it to our high standards.

Before we kick off the night with our first set, we'll invite the bride and groom to the dance floor to have their first dance.

Soon after everyone else is invited on to the dance floor where they shall remian all night long!

1st live set

After the first live performance of 60 minutes we'll have a short break. At this point we can mix with the crowd, having put our iPod back on, or go and eat a meal if we didn't have time before.

Once refreshed and everyone has had chance to catch their breath, we'll be back for more!

2nd live set & end of the night

Now we've tired you all out and made you scream for more it's time to put our instruments down.

After our 2 hours of live music is over, if we've finished short of midnight we'll continue to play music through our iPod until the agreed time. Then unfortunately, it's time to pack away and say good bye!

See you at your anniversary parties in the future!


For ten years we've been providing live music for countless satisfied couples. We are proud of the service we offer, but don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at our recent testimonials below.
