Absolutely.  All we ask is that you give us a minimum of 4 weeks notice so that we can rehearse your song.
We are based in Liverpool, but we are happy to travel almost anywhere to play, but please bear in mind that our quote will reflect additional travel charges.  For example, a wedding in Liverpool will be a lower quote than a wedding in London.
There may be some songs in our repertoire which you definitely want to hear and maybe even some which you would rather we didn’t play and we’re always more than happy to oblige, however even we won’t choose every song we will play in advance.  Our advice is that it’s always best to leave the set lists up to us as we know what works best in a live situation.
Venue permitting, it normally only takes us 30-40 minutes to set up our equipment and lights.
We will arrive 1 hour before the evening function is set to start.  If we are providing the disco service for you, we usually start at 7pm, so we would arrive at the venue at 6pm.

Our standard 2 x 45 minute live sets usually run from around 8.45pm – 9.30pm and then from 10.30pm- 11.15pm, but this is totally flexible.

We’re more than happy to move these sets around to suit your needs.  We can even do one long 90 min set if that would suit you better.

If you’ve also booked our disco service then this will usually run in conjunction with the live sets from 7pm to 1am venue permitting. However if you require an early start or indeed a late finish, we would be happy to arrange this for you.
