FAQ

1When do you perform through the day?

We blend in seamlessly with the staff at the venue and help serve the starters and the main course, you may even find us on the doors welcoming you and your guests in to the room where the wedding breakfast is served.

The singing set and reveal takes place after the main course. This is to ensure we get maximum surprise effect and all of your guests are in the room.

2Do you speak to the venue?
Yes, we will speak to the venue to arrange arrival & set up times, what to wear as well also timings of the event.
3Do you use your own equipment?
Yes we do. We provide a full PA system with radio mics. All of our performers are fully insured with Public Liability cover of up to £10,000,000. All electrical equipment is also PAT tested and certificates will be sent to your venue when required.
4Can I request songs?

Of course you can!

However, we would also strongly advise that you take on our professional opinion and allow us to do what we do best.

Our song choices all have a reason and a purpose behind them and the set list has been crafted to get all guests singing, dancing, napkin waving and doing the conga if space permits!

We get through a range of numbers to ensure there is something for the whole wedding party to enjoy.
