What We'll Do At Your Event

Arrival, set up and soundcheck

6pm is the time we usually arrive at your venue. It will take approximately 1 hour to set up and do a full sound check. If load in circumstances difficult, e.g. your reception room is on the first floor, it may take a while longer - please take this into consideration. However if it's easy access we can get straight in with the gear and an hour will be plently of time.

Then we immediately get on with sound check. This is so we can test our instruments and PA at full volume to make sure we sound the best we can at your venue.

1st live set

Kicking the party off with the first of two sixty minute live sets, we'll get the party started and get everybody warmed up and ready for something to eat.

Once the first set is over, we'll take the oppertunity to break. During this time we'll continue to play party music, only this time from our laptop/ipod -  for those of you who want to keep boogying while the buffet is served/you have a drink break etc. 

After set up

After we have checked our sound levels in the venue at full volume and are happy we're sounding great, we will head backstage to change into our performance clothes and eat a hot meal, have refreshments and chat to the event organisers.

*Please provide us with a lockable changing room where all 5 band members can retire to at once - the toilets is unacceptable, sorry! 

2nd live set & end of the night

That's a wrap! After our second set of sixty minutes and encore, we will immediately begin to put our instruments away and dismantle equipment ready to load up. We aim to do this as quickly and as subtly as possible.

Once the van's ready to go we'll say our thank yous and good byes before we get on our way.

If you've upgraded to have our services past midnight, we'll continue until the agreed time.



If you have any other questions or would like to discuss things with us in greater detail, please feel free to get in touch with our agents at Alive Network on, 0845 108 5500, who will be more than happy to discuss your requirements.
