Will you send us a song playlist for approval?

As we tailor our music to suit the individual audience at any given event, we prefer not to use rigid playlists but instead to watch and work with an audience. Any specific songs you wish to hear you may email to us in advance and we will work them into our sets on the night.

Can we request a song?

Yes of course. Even if we don’t know it already, we would be delighted to learn a special song for you (free of charge) so long as it’s of the same musical genre.  Just give us a month’s notice.

Can we come and see you play live?
