Book within 7 days of your enquiry and get a laptop DJ set performed by the band at half price (£60.00, worth £130.00).

Years of experience playing at the weddings, corporate events and parties means they know exactly what works and when.

They can provide an extremely cool acoustic set as the backdrop to your ceremony, wedding photos or drinks reception (see The Insiders duo), a raucous rock’n’roll extravaganza for your evening entertainment, or both.

What can I say? They were fantastic!! Everybody at our wedding reception was mesmerised by the talent these boys have! Gareth, Wedding, Worcestershire

They can also add another dimension to their sound with a female vocal, and they can provide all background and DJ music (with lighting and full PA) - and are happy to include your special requests for any type of music or for specific songs (with at least 4 weeks' notice, please).

The band's song list spans The Beatles, Elvis and Stevie Wonder through to Snow Patrol, Jessie J, and the Kings Of Leon, and they're happy to tailor their set to suit your personal tastes.

Whatever your requirements, they’ll take the hassle out of organising your music, so that you can concentrate on having fun!
