Terms & Conditions
During a 5 hour period the band will play an equivalent of 4 x 45 minute sets. This can be spaced any way you would like. For example, a sit down function might have 45 minutes of music while guests arrive and for entree’s, then the band would break over dinner and formalities, ready for the main dance bracket of 3 x 45 minutes sets for the rest of the night. The same sort of structure would apply to a cocktail function. Of course, within reason we are totally flexible on how you space out our time which means we can fit in to any schedule.
The 5 hour period begins from when the band needs to be fully set up and ready to go. Be aware that setting up early is considered extra time for the guys and would need to be quoted accordingly.
During the night we commit to providing all background music during our breaks. This includes during the main dance bracket. When the dance bracket breaks occur, we often find that people tend to ‘break’ with us for their dessert or coffee. As such, we put on background music during that time also. If you would like some more serious dance hits that are favorites to you, feel free to supply us with an Ipod containing those tunes. We can then play them through our PA to keep people up on the dance floor. I recommend choosing songs that you know the band can’t play to keep up variety.
Where possible, any specific songs you would like played through our PA directly is best supplied via an IPod rather than a CD. This limits the risk of a CD jumping or not working in a specific CD player.
Each band member on the day requires a meal. Check with your venue as usually they will have discounted crew meals on offer.
Travel is calculated for our band members using the shortest route on Google maps. This money is passed onto the musician to cover their time and expenses, whilst providing adequate incentive to play out of town.
During the night if you need to use our microphone for speeches or even if you want to get up and sing, we would love to help. We always encourage participation throughout the night as it creates a fun energy.
It happens quite often with us that the Party is up and dancing so much that no one wants to go home. In that case, when you would like the band to play longer, it is negotiated between you and the band directly on the night using cash only.
Choosing the music on the night is quite often best left to the band. On the night, our guys are great at playing a song for that particular moment, ensuring that people are dancing as much as possible. Having said that, it is very important that you let us know the style of music that you would like on the night. Our guys will then use that information to their advantage when getting the party kicking.
Once the deposit has been paid as per the quote, it is non-refundable in the event that your circumstances should change. Most people are planning their events well in advance and when we commit to an event which is cancelled, there is little to no opportunity for rebooking the night somewhere else.
If you have specific songs you would like played that we do not know, we will look into learning 1 or 2 for you (depending on the difficulty etc).
