A lot of their equipment expands and contrasts for flexibility of fitting in your venue without compromising guest and dance floor space. If you can provide pictures of the function room from the venue before arriving this will allow them to arrange and discuss placement of the band.

How long will it take to setup?

They usually require around a maximum of 1 hour to setup and get things in place, although this varies depending on the room and size of the venue. They do try to be as discreet as possible and set up the DJ equipment first so that there is some background music while the heavy equipment is put in place.

Is there anything else we neeed to make you aware of?

Some venues now operate a sound limiting device. Unfortunately, it becomes impossible to play venues with such devices as the drums alone are at a decibel level which will cut off the electric to the other equipment. To save embarrassment and to ensure your day is not ruined they will therfore respectfully decline any venues with such devices.

Simply outstanding! Everything we could have possibly wanted and more.

From start to finish you were all amazing. The acoustic session was fantastic and well received. It set the mood perfectly for the evening.

The range of music provided in both live and DJ sets catered for all ages and certainly had the dancefloor occupied at all times – even when I was on the microphone!

You looked great, sounded great and made the evening reception exactly what we were looking for. Numerous people have remarked on how good you were and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to everyone!

We had the band do our wedding in February and from start to finish they were extremely helpful and professional. We had them play at the ceremony too which was at a different venue to the evening reception so really good that they offer to do this. The ceremony was just the singer and an accoustic guitar player and really did sound amazing! As for the reception they kept the party going and the dance floor full all night with both dj-Ing and live band (full band this time) thanks guys I can’t recommend you enough! 10 out if 10.

The band played our wedding on the 13th June 2015.

I cannot recommend them enough, we booked them in December after watching them perform in a local pub, from day one they were really proffessional and were happy to accommodate the music we liked from their set list as well as learning our first dance wedding song which they performed acoustically.

All our guests commented on how good the band were and the dance floor was full all evening.

The wedding guests were aged from 3 months to 96 years and the lads catered for everyone throughout the night.

nothing but praise!!

The band played at our 60th birthday party last week, performing to a mixed age group which is not easy to do successfully. I have now had numerous messages from guests (including 2 musicians) saying how much they enjoyed the music. This was the second family party made special by this band. Forget the usual boring disco – this band will make your party special.

You guys made our wedding reception. Thank you so much. And you learnt Levelers beautifully day especially for us. My only worry for the entire wedding was that no one would dance. Quite the opposite happened:-)

Thank you to a talented group of musicians and friends xxx
