The band are happy for you to suggest songs from the repertoire that you would very much like to hear or rather them not play, however the band has some songs that segway straight to each other, have special arrangements or even equipment changes so the final set is chosen by the band, The band have masses of experience and will always adopt the set to the audience where needed.
The band will dress in smart casual wear, normally smart dark jeans or trousers with a white or black shirt. The band can dress more or less casually when requested.
Singing and performing on stage can be a physical task so soft drinks are normally provided by the client. The band does not include “food or a meal” as a part of its contract however the band often has to travel for a long period to get to a venue and then set up and sound check before and evening of performing, therefore if you do have the option to provide food or a meal for the band it is always very much welcomed.
