“The band were absolutely fantastic and were a great way to finish off our summer party!! The band were very professional and entertaining and everyone had a brilliant time. The selection of music worked really well which showed by the packed dance floor!”Leanne Renn - Summer Party, Cherry Tree Barn
“Silent alarm were absolutely fantastic, we had so many comments from our guests saying how impressed they were with the band. They were exactly what we wanted and so pleased that we chose them. Would highly recommend the guys!!! Top job.”Hayley Cool - Wedding, Clock Barn, Hampshire
“You guys were absolutely incredible! Went well above and beyond, brilliant bunch of guys and complete professionals. You learnt our first dance song (which is without doubt the single best version of that song I've ever heard) you travelled ridiculously far, with a van that broke down on you, didn't moan/complain/fuss once, even when I checked late in the day and nobody had fed you guys! You worked all damn day. Did a beautiful acoustic set during the day and still rocked the eff out of our evening til the early hours! I need another reason to book again...”Cheryl Steele - Wedding
I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that?
Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest classic and current chart hits, so there's certainly something for everyone.
Do you take requests?
We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.
How long do you take to set-up?
60-90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.
What time do you play?
At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.
How long do you play for?
We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening (with the option of adding an upbeat 60 minute acoustic set to give you 3 hours of live music) and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception?
Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute live lounge-style acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
What is the website guide price based on?
The published guide price is based on our 5-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Woking. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?
Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Will you perform our first dance?
Yes, as long as we have two weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.
How much space do you require?
We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.
How much power do you require?
2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks?
Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.
Can we see you play live before booking?
As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
