What We'll Do At Your Event


Arrival, Set Up & Soundcheck

On arrival we'll jump out the van and meet the venue staff/event organiser. Then once we know here we are performing, we'll quickly get on with unloading and setting up the stage. Having set up and tuned up, we'll being a full volume soundcheck to test our gear, but mainly to make sure the sound levels are right for your venue and that we are not tripping the sound limiter.

Please, please, please make sure the venue DOES NOT has an impossible sound limiter installed (90dB or less). We can play quietly, just not that quiet!

Background music is also provided over our PA before, between and after our live sets.


After Set Up

Now that we've done our sound check and everything is set and read to go, we will take a break and get ourselves changed & refreshed after loading in all our gear, on top of a potentially could have been, a long day on the road.

Please provide us with a hot meal and a secure place to change clothes (NOT the loos). We will be very grateful!


1st Live Set

It's time to start the party with a bang.

Normally, at around 9pm we'll take to the stage and kick off proceedings (the start time is flexible and will be discussed during the 3 weeks prior to your event).

After the first set we'll take a 30-45 minute break, during which we'll put on the background music/DJ some music from our laptop, before returning for the final set.


2nd Live Set & End Of The Night

It's time for the second and final set of the night (usually stating at 11pm).

Be prepared to leave the dance floor at midnight with holes in your trousers/tights from power sliding across the floor and completely exhausted from non-stop dancing!

After the live show we'll play music through our PA if we've finished before midnight, otherwise we'll have a moment to chat with guests before packing away and setting off home.
