What We Do
Arrival, Set Up and Soundcheck
Upon arrival we'll liaise with the venue/event manager and load in, set up and sound check as quickly and as discretely as possible. This takes approximately 90 minutes, 20 minutes of which are for 'sound check' which involves us playing live, full volume, in order to balance the sound and get the best possible live sound in your specific venue.
We are happy to arrive and set up before your guests but we charge an early arrival fee per hour before 5pm (6pm weekdays) if you've booked our standard service.
After Set Up
After we've set up and sound checked we will put background music on through our PA system and go to change into our stage clothes, and this is usually when we'll eat. You will need to arrange for the venue to provide us with a secure changing room (not the toilets), and your catering to provide us with a hot meal and soft drinks/tea/coffee.
This is standard for all wedding/corporate/party bookings for any band. If we can't eat before the first set (EG: the event is behind schedule and we need to perform right away) - then we'll eat during our first break.
1st Live Set
After our first live set, we'll take a break (usually around 45 minutes although this can be anything you wish from 15 minutes to fit in with your timings). During this time we'll leave a play list of carefully chosen music running in the background through our PA system.
If you choose our DJ upgrade option, the DJ will run the DJ rig and be on hand to take requests and make announcements.
2nd Live Set & End of the Night
After our second live performance, if we have finished before midnight, we will provide background music until midnight (unless you've selected a later finish upgrade). Only after our official contracted finish time will we pack our equipment down. We will do this as quickly and discretely as possible - which usually takes around 1 hour.
