Frequently Asked Questions

How far do you travel?

Our rule of thumb is about an hour from the Taunton Area.
We sometimes get as far as Bristol, Minehead, Frome, South Devon and South Dorset.

What times do you play?

If you are organising a party celebration at a village hall, for example, we would suggest a 3.5 hour set with a break for food. Usually we get booked the following times: 7 – 10.30, 7.30 – 11 or 8 – 11.30.

How much space do you need?

We have squeezed into some very tiny spots over the years, but ideally we ask for a performance area of at least 5m x 3m, especially if we have our drummer as well.

Do you play in Marquees or Outside?

Yes to both. However we need adequate protection from the great British elements. Therefore we require a marquee/gazebo with a cover and 3 enclosed sides please

We are having a Marquee. Do we need to install a dance floor and stage?

I would recommend not having the disco type dance floor or stage. From our experience they are never big enough.

Do you supply your own PA and can we use it for a disco afterwards?

We bring all our own PA equipment, but unfortunately we can not let it be used after we have finished our set.

What else do the band require?

We have simple needs really.
We just ask for decent parking and access to the venue please and a powerpoint and 4 armless chairs in the performing area
