If you are hosting a large-scale event we are happy to supply further lighting and a larger P.A. However, an additional fee will apply. If you are personal hiring a P.A. system we are happy to discuss the act requirements with your sound engineer.

I've been told the venue has a "sound limiter" - is this a problem?
A sound limiter is an electronic device that monitors the sound and is sometimes connected to cuts the power in the venue (and therefore to the acts equipment) if the volume level in the room exceeds a pre-set level. Please be very careful when choosing your venue as your event could be ruined if a limiter is installed. If your venue has a sound limiter we will contact them to ensure there are no foreseeable problems with noise related concerns.

How far will the acts travel?
Our acts are happy to travel anywhere in the world.

How early do you need to setup before a gig?
Soloist are going to set up quicker than a 10 piece Function band, but we advise to allow for an hour set up time. However some larger acts may wish to take up to 2 hours to set up PA, lighting and sound check. We suggest that larger bands should set up prior to the wedding party arriving.

Can we make song requests?
Most of our acts offer a first dance request for weddings. Any other request can be enquired. If more than one song/piece is requested the act may include an extra fee for arranging and rehearsing.
