We’ll be in touch around 3 weeks before the big day to finalise the details, timings, song choices and any other queries you may have.

Arrival, set up and soundcheck

We arrive at 6pm or after and will take approx. 1 hour to set up and sound check. If load in is difficult or your reception room is on the first floor or above this may take longer. However if we can get straight in with the gear an hour is sufficient.

Sound check is immediately carried out after our gear is set up. This is so we can test our equipment at full volume to make sure we sound great in your venue.

1st live set & break

We play 2x 60mins sets of live music on your wedding day as standard. The first set usually starts with your first dance and from our experience, the time for this would be about 8.30pm. See FAQ’s reference us learning your first dance. 

After the first live set we will then break whilst your buffet is usually served at approx. 9.30pm. It takes about an hour for people to queue, eat and freshen up so we will play party music through our PA during this period in case you have guests that want to dance all night!!

After set up

We will then need some time to change in to our performance wear (in a dedicated changing room please). We will pop on some music through our PA system whilst we do this in order to build the anticipation and keep the atmosphere lively.

2nd live set & end of the night

The big finale and big hits section comes in the form of the second set. Usually best from about 10.30-11.30. 

This gives you a nice 30 mins at the end where we will play disco music again and leaves you free to say goodbye to your guests as they start to leave.

Music finishes at midnight and we will then pack up and exit the venue, having said our thank yous, goodbyes and best wishes to the newly- weds. 

 

We understand how important the evening entertainment is in capping off an already perfect day. We are proud of the level of service we have provided to countless satisfied clients but don’t just take our word for it, check out our recent testimonials below.
