Here are some of the most frequently asked questions from our couples.
Where are the band based? Do you travel?
We are based in Dublin. We perform all over Ireland we have also performed in Spain, Italy and Beijing China.
Can we select what songs we would like to hear on the night?
Yes. We welcome the Bride & Groom to select up to 20 songs from our set list, we will try to do all of the songs selected provided they are suitable to your guest on the night, we aim to ensure a great nights entertainment for every one.
How long does it take for the band to set up?
40mins to 1 hour, depending on the size of the venue and the P.A / equipment required for the room.
What time do you start your performance?
We will require you to inform the band two weeks prior to the wedding date. Usually we are asked to start at 9:30pm so we would need to start setting up the equipment at 830pm.
Do you take a break during your performance?
Usually we take a short break during the serving of tea/coffee to your guests and this usually occurs about an hour into the performance, during which time we will have some background music playing.
How long do you play for?
Usually we play for two and a half hours over a 3 hour period.
Do you provide all of the sound and lighting equipment?
Yes, we provide our own sound and lighting equipment and it is of the highest quality. There has been no expense spared on the equipment and instruments that we use. All equipment is regularly updated and we have our equipment serviced and maintained on a regular basis to minimize any equipment failure on the big night, we also have back ups for our back ups.
I am concerned about the volume of a live band.
One of our band members have been trained in live sound engineering so you are in good hands but if you feel the band could bring the volume up or down on the night let us know and we will adjust to suit. We use a digital 24 channel sound desk with wireless control so we can monitor the sound and make adjustments from anywhere in the venue, we strive to focus the majority of the sound on the dance floor allowing your guest to sit at their tables and talk comfortably when they get too tired from dancing!
Do you provide a DJ and Pre dinner music package?
Yes. Please see the packages page or contact us for a quote.
What instruments are in the band?
