Our wish is to offer you first class live music, the WOW factor and an everlasting memory at an affordable price!

 

 THE PACKAGES
 


Our prices are for our two piece band but if you'd like us to perform with a bigger band, it may be possible depending on the availability of the musicians we work with. Their fees will be between £325.00 - £400.00 per musician, depending on when and where the event is.

Please be assured though, that our two piece fills up the dance-floor and wows guests in exactly the same way as when we have a stage full of musicians! It's our ambition to exceed your expectations and not your budget!

Michael plays multiple instruments and spends countless hours in the music studio producing custom tracks for us to sing and play guitar to. His time isn't something we pass on in our fee - it's all done as a labour of love! With the help of a family member who's an outstanding drummer, they record with live instruments to give our two piece a dynamic full band sound which sounds worlds apart from purchased backing tracks.

Performing with beautifully produced backing tracks is something many famous artists currently do, and being able to play instruments and sing to customised tracks is a skill we've worked really hard to perfect.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT OUR PACKAGES


THE FREE DJ SERVICE - GOLD & DIAMOND PACKAGE

Our free DJ service included in the gold and diamond packages, is a great way to save you even more money. We're not professionally kitted out DJ's but we've thousands of songs plus mixing software on our laptop, to save you hiring the additional services of a DJ. It always works brilliantly at keeping the dance floor going, especially because we have years of experience playing weddings. We hope it doesn’t sound like we're bragging but we must tell you that we have a natural flair for playing the right songs at the right time, which is so important to get right! Oh! And we can take requests too!


LEARNING YOUR FIRST DANCE - THE DIAMOND PACKAGE

We learn your first dance included in our Diamond package. It takes us about 10 hours to learn and rehearse a brand new song although some songs can take much longer. No matter how long it takes us to get it perfect for you though, we don't charge any more. We require 6 weeks notice to arrange and learn your song please.


THE ACOUSTIC SET - THE DIAMOND PACKAGE

We have a beautiful repertoire of acoustic songs which work perfectly at the beginning of the evening. The songs are stripped back acoustic versions of well known and very loved songs from all decades and genres. Some are mellow and romantic, others are upbeat and fun loving! 

We use the same amplification (microphones, speakers etc) for our early evening acoustic set as we do for our floor-filler sets, and so we'll need to perform our acoustic show in the same place as where we'll be set up for the whole evening.

 

IMPORTANT BOOKING INFORMATION
Please read this before making a booking.
Thank you.
 

DEPOSIT
If you would like to book, we kindly request a 25% deposit to secure the date please.

OUR FEE
We are unable to negotiate our prices because we're already offering the best price we possibly can and most importantly, we charge everyone the same because we like to be fair to all the lovely people who hire us.

EXPENSES
Travel expenses are included throughout the whole of East Anglia. For other regions, please let us know where you are and we will let you know how much it will cost to come to your venue.

NO AGENCY OR MANAGEMENT FEES
We manage ourselves to keep our costs as low as possible for you. Under agencies or management, we would need to charge between 20 - 40% more, and this isn’t something we want our couples to pay for. It’s also because we really like to stay in touch with you ourselves! After all, we will be the ones taking care of you and the music on the night.

So, we limit our bookings to 2 a week to be able to look after everyone who books us. We ensure we make plenty of time to learn first dances and constantly rehearse and learn new songs to keep our set updated. We spend one day a week in the office responding to enquiries and emails but of course we will always respond with urgency if you have anything you need us to help you with quickly. Please call or text us if this is the case.

FOOD AND DRINK
We don’t make requests for food and drink which is usually a standard requirement of most professional bands. We simply don't want to put you to any trouble or added expense.

SETTING UP
We politely ask to arrive and set up at 6pm to be ready for a 7.30pm start please. If you'd like us to arrive earlier or later, please send us your timings and we'll let you know if there is any additional cost. Thank you.

EQUIPMENT
We’ve invested heavily in sophisticated equipment to deliver a beautiful and well controlled sound and bring everything necessary to play for you. All we need is electricity please. If your venue would like us to use their amplification instead of ours, please contact us before proceeding to book, thank you.

MARQUEES & OUTDOORS
We can play in marquees, tipis and in open spaces too as long as we have a flat dry surface, a safe electricity supply and adequate shelter please. We are unable to set up and play directly on grass/rough ground. This is because our public liability insurance and musical equipment is not valid unless we meet the insurers outdoor safety requirements.

We kindly ask for access to unload next to the marquee and preferably the performance area please. If you have any questions about us playing outside, please drop us a line or give us a call.

SOUND RESTRICTORS | LIMITERS
Sadly we are unable to perform in venues with sound restrictor machines installed in the building (not the hand held type). This is not because we are overly loud by any means but it’s due to the dynamics live music presents. Installed sound limiters are triggered by a powerful vocal, a high pitched note from either vocals or musical instruments and by the audience’s excitement too! So even though there are only two of us, our performance includes all of these triggers and we’re unable to work with them.

Installed sound restrictors usually turn the sound and lights off for 10 seconds or more when they react. Sadly this can ruin the live performance and flow of dancing. We always endeavour to perform to the best of our ability and deliver nothing less and this is why we have decided not to play in venues with installed limiters. The hand held type or requests from a venue to keep within a particular decibel range are not a problem, as long as the restriction is not set too low. If you have any questions regarding this or anything else, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

PERFORMANCE LOCATION
If you would like us to play above the ground floor of a building or any location that doesn’t have loading access close to where we’ll be performing, please discuss this with us before booking. Most venues that host live music have loading areas close to where bands are asked to play but if this isn’t the case, we’ll just need to make sure we can definitely perform for you. We can usually sort it but we may need to make arrangements to arrive earlier, so that we don’t delay the start time. There may only be two of us but we have a lot of equipment! We could have chosen a more compact and quicker set up to make life easier but we never compromise, especially when it comes to delivering our much loved sound and stage presentation.

KIND WORDS

"We weren't expecting Georgia and Michael to be great DJ's as well as an amazing band! We were just expecting them to play music in between sets but their attention to the dance floor was constant. They did everything they possibly could to meet everyone's requests and you could see how much they cared about us all having an amazing time!
 

- Lola and Daniel
