Frequently Asked Questions


Where have you played before?

  • At almost every kind of event at a great many different venues

  • From 5 star hotels to the friendly local pub

  • Most venues are in London and the South East

  • But we have played at events from Portsmouth to Carlisle and Colchester to Bristol

What do you do?

  • For most gigs the lineup of the group is a duo

  • Karyn is the singer, Paul is the guitarist and backing vocalist

  • "Ace" is a bespoke computer and is the 3rd member of the duo (!!?)

  • The most easy going band member ever, looking after the rhythm section, never has an "off day", never late for gigs, no hissy fits, always follows instructions and with impeccable timing!

  • Karyn wishes Paul was a bit more like that!

  • We sometimes perform as a trio with the addition of a second female singer

  • Sometimes Karyn cannot do a gig and so it is necessary to have a different singer

  • And as a four piece with the further addition of a male keyboard player

How much do you charge?

  • As there are so many variables involved with most gigs

  • We strive to be as cost effective as possible and give great value

  • Please contact the person who directed you to this site for details

Can I make special requests for my wedding?

  • Yes, we would like to know what music you like and also possibly more importantly, what music you dislike

  • We can then organise the live music and the disco playlists according to your likes and dislikes

Small Duo Setup

Typical small duo set up in hotel function room

Technical Information


We only require power from two normal separate 13 amp household type sockets

One is for the sound equipment and the other for lighting

The stage [if supplied] size requirement to be discussed

We have a minimum height requirement over the stage or performing area of approx 7ft 6in or more if possible due to using an overhead gantry for lighting.

[See pictures below]

However, if the minimum height requirement is an issue at your venue, we can reconfigure the lighting to separate stands to accomodate a lower ceiling, we are happy to discuss this.


We need access to unload from and parking for a long wheel base Hitop Transit van.


Setting up all the equipment and sound checking normally takes a minimum of 1 hour or 1 + 1/2 hours, it could be more, depending on access, distance to and from the van and whether there are steps, stairs or lifts

Please inform us if the room for your event is not on the ground floor


We are fully self-contained and have a range of equipment available for events with audiences of 40 to 500 guests. As we own and operate all of our equipment, there is no need to hire in extra gear therefore we are able to pass on these savings direct to our customers.

Each of our entertainment packages can be tailor made to suit your needs and budget.


By using bespoke computer equipment and pro gear like Bose and Mackie speakers, Crown amplifiers, Marshall, Shure mics, etc. a professional and reliable level of performance is assured.


We have a complete range of lighting we can use and because we are live entertainers as well as a disco, extra lighting is required to light the performance / stage area as well as the dancefloor


Please let us know in advance if there is a Sound Level Meter in the venue
