How much space do you need?
Our ideal stage size for the 7 piece is 10" x 20", but we can accommodate depending on the line up and given space. Take a look at our mocked up stage plan…
How is it best to time things?
We are normally the main entertainment for the evening, and in our opinion, two sets is always better than three shorter ones, and a short break of half an hour in-between.
Regardless, we are to entirely happy to work around your requirements.
Can I pick the bands playlist?
You're more than welcome to discuss the playlist with Jimmy, and of course we wouldn’t want to play anything you didn’t like, however the choice of songs to play at your event will have been very carefully selected. Over the years of playing at weddings, private parties and corporate events a filtering process occurs. Songs are tried and tested, reactions gauged and feedback received, whether that be verbally or from the keen eye of the seasoned professional band leader, any future song choices will be based on their merit and success at creating the right ambience and ensuring a full dance floor.
Where will you travel to?
The band are all seasoned travellers and dependent on availability, will travel anywhere in the world.
Can I see you play live?
We often play in central London at public access venues.
Will you learn our special song?
We would be happy to, perhaps a bespoke arrangement if so desired.
Is the video on your website a true reflection of the band?
Yes, the line up, instruments, stands, and overall sound and look of the band is exactly what you should expect.

We normally arrive at 4pm to be set by 6.30 and finish at midnight. We are of course very willing to discuss any alternatives.

Providing there is reasonable access to the venue, roughly an hour.
Can I provisionally book you?
We can pencil in your request for a few days and let you know first if we have another enquiry for the same date.
What if the band split up before my event?
It's highly unlikely that we won't fulfil our contractual engagements if that situation arose.
Do I need to feed the band?
The guys always perform better on full stomachs, and if it’s convenient we would request a hot meal (equivalent to the guests) and light refreshments, although we wouldn’t say no to a bottle of wine.
Can my sisters/bosses/daughter's dog sing with your band?
Absolutely! We would advise speaking to Jimmy before the event to arrange the key and form of the song. You never know, we might already have an arrangement for you.
What will the band wear?
Unless black tie is requested, we wear black suits and black shirts. Jimmy wears something outrageous!!
Does the band have PAT and PLI certificates?
We carry up to date PAT certification and have a combined Public Liability Insurance of up to £10M.
Why should I book?
We're slightly biassed, but we'd like to think that you won't find a better sounding and more charismatic singer than Jimmy, and the band are pretty good too!!
How much does it cost to book the band?
Even though we have a standard fee for each line up, dependent on travel and playing times, this can vary, and it’s always best to speak to Jimmy to get a precise quote for your event.
