Just below is an example of how we sound live, and as you can hear we sound more like a band with 5 or 6 members. This is partially down to the musicians multitasking skills. Kent (keyboard player and singer) plays the bass on a keyboard with his left hand, whilst with his right hand will play either, or together depending on the song, piano, Fender Rhodes, Hammond organ, synth and even triggering sounds, loops and effects. Jake (guitarist and singer) plays through an impressive professional guitar rig setup, all fed to an all-tube Fender amp, and swaps electric guitar for acoustic depending on the atmosphere required for each song, occasionally adding harmonica for that distinctive "folk" feel. This allows the band to remain small in size, but sound very large and robust. With all of this together with actually being musically skilled, the result is quite simply stunning...
We can take care of all the musical aspects of your event, including aperitif / champagne cocktail, through to dinner and dance. What's more, if you don't have a DJ you'll have full use of our high quality PA and lighting systems for the later hours with your own selection of MP3's and playlists. Or just ask, as we can put together a dance playlist to suit the mood. We have ample professional lighting to create a breathtaking atmosphere both on-stage and on the dance-floor. The lighting we use consists of multiple TRI Colour LED bars, multiple cans, RGB lasers and fog machine, all controlled through DMX and wireless systems, using pre-programmed selections. Our professional and high power sound system will sufficiently cover venues with a capacity of up to 300 people, but also works perfectly for small events!
Our repertoire includes songs from some of the greatest singer / songwriting legends in the history of music, such as Bruno Mars, Kings of Leon, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Elton John, Billy Joel, REM, Joe Cocker, The Beatles, Lionel Richie, Ray Charles, Fools Garden, Eric Clapton, Louis Armstrong and many many more. You'll not be disappointed!
