SPACE FOR THE BAND
Generally speaking a 3 x 6m space is ample for the full 10 piece band. However if your performance space is smaller than this we will most likely be able to position band members to accommodate everyone. The space sizes listed below can be considered as comfortable minimums for the band:
9 piece - 5x2m
8 piece - 4x2m
7 piece - 4x2m
6 piece - 2x3m
5 piece - 2x3m

We are based in London, and are happy to travel to any gig within Greater London for free. We are always happy to travel further afield for a performance, and we do frequently travel outside of London for shows. We have set fees to cover our travel expenses and overnight accommodation if necessary.
PUBLIC LIVE PERFORMANCES
The band tries to fit a showcase in every 3 months in Central London when their schedule allows.
Please feel free to let us know which songs from our repertoire are your favourites. That way we can get a feel for your taste of music and we can design the set list around your preferences.
Often a lot of songs that are favourite classics are actually dance floor killers, and it can be quite hard to get everyone back to the dance floor afterwards. Moreover we have designed set lists in particular ways with medleys integrated into them to keep your guests on the dance floor and to keep the party moving!
So our preferred option is for you to use the traffic light system and indicate which songs from our repertoire are green, amber and red. That way we can design the set list around your preferences and we can suggest some options that you might have overlooked.
SET UP TIME
The minimum set up time required is 60 minutes. However it's best to schedule in 90 - 120 minutes to mitigate any unforeseen issues that might arise. The band will work quickly to set up and sound check as soon as possible. Sound checking is very important for us as it means we'll be able to avoid poor sound quality, feedback, and other technical sound issues which could arise throughout the performance. A good sound check means you'll get a great performance.
FOOD & DRINK
All the hard work the band puts in from traveling to your venue, setting up, and working well into the night makes the band quite hungry and thirsty! So they would very much appreciate being fed and watered during a break. They don't expect a 3 course meal, and they don't drink on the job, but it's true that a happy band always results in a happy performance.
