What is your most memorable wedding?
That is a tough one. We remember lots of weddings for various reasons. I remember we played a wedding on a farm a couple of years ago and they had a hot air balloon. The view was breath taking and as you can probably imagine the guests loved it.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Another hard one... after googling what an adjective is we decided on the following.. Unique, friendly, professional, dedicated, reliable
What about your business are you most proud of?
We are so proud of all the amazing feedback that we receive!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Relax. Don’t worry about the little things. Enjoy the planning stage. It will all come together on the day and it will be perfect
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
We once sang the first dance for a young couple and unbeknown to us, they had paid an artist to paint the scene. You can find this in our photos.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Our process varies depending on where the enquiry has come from, however our aim is to make sure the couple is comforztable. We like to meet in person if possible, when’re we can have a casual chat about what you want, and what you don’t want. We will pick your brains about music that you like, concerts you have been to, and anything else that may help us on the night. Once you are happy and want to go ahead with the booking, we will take a deposit and sign a contract. This contract puts in writing that we are going to come on the selected day and deliver everything that we have promised. We will then stay in contact with you between up until the day, we will meet you at the venue to go in to more detail of where you would like us to set up, running orders of the night and to talk about any extras you may ant to add (cocktail rday caption etc). We will then send you our set list so you can look through at your leisure and pick the songs that you want to be played on the night. We also ask you to put a list together of any songs or bands you would like to be included on the DJ section of the night. We will also discuss your first dance - if it’s something you want us to play as a band we will. Learn it and send you a stripped down acoustic version of the song so that you can see if you like it - and please be honest! Then we are there at any time for last minute changes in song choices or anything else that we can assist with.
What makes a romantic first dance?
Something that means something to you as a couple. Don’t follow the current trends, everyone has a song that reminds them of their partner, no matter what the lyrics are, that is your song.
What is your number one floor-filler?
OuR version of blurred lines by robin thicke with a twist!
Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?
To perform with the likes of Freddie Mercury would have been amazing!
What is the soundtrack to your life?
Oh god, there’s so many songs... right now I will go with Queen- don’t stop me now!
