WHAT DO YOU CHARGE?
This varies depending on the location of the venue, event timings and length/number of sets we play. Get in touch with some details and we will give you an instant quote.


WHY SHOULD I BOOK EQUIVALENTS?

There are countless other bands to choose from so why us? We take a great deal of pride in what we do. We rehearse and perform on a regular basis to make absolutely sure we're ready to party with you and your guests!

Of course we love playing all the classics but we also aim to stand out from other bands, playing the occasional unexpected but awesome track. Have a look at our ever-expanding set list. Above all, we are committed to putting on a show that'll have you and your guests on your feet!


IS THERE ANYTHING I NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN BOOKING YOU?

We need access to mains power and ideally a performance area 4m wide by 3m deep minimum. Other than that we are self-contained and bring all our own equipment, including LED stage lights and state-of-the-art PA.


WHAT IF THE PERFORMANCE AREA IS NOT ON THE GROUND FLOOR?

That's not a problem though the nearer we can get to the performance area to unload, the easier and quicker the process is for everyone.


DO YOU PLAY OUTSIDE?

Of course!  We love playing outdoors. However for safety reasons we need to be able to keep our equipment dry should the weather turn, and we'll need safe access to a power supply.


WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARRIVE AND HOW LONG DO YOU TAKE TO SET UP?

Let us know if you have any special requirements. We need roughly 1 hour 15 minutes to load in, set up our equipment and sound check, though this can vary depending on ease of access etc. In any event we always endeavour to set up as efficiently and with as little disruption to you as possible.


DO YOU ALWAYS PLAY THE SAME SONGS?

We sometimes have a set list but we also like to choose songs as we play, reacting to the crowd. Please do tell us your favourite songs from our ever-expanding repertoire. And conversely, if there are any songs you REALLY DON'T want us to play, please let us know!


CAN YOU LEARN TO PLAY MY FAVOURITE SONG?

We love learning new songs and if we're confident we can do your favourite song justice we will play it!


WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FINISH PLAYING?

We'll be sad to say goodnight! It takes us roughly 45 minutes to pack down our equipment and leave the premises.


HOW LONG DO YOU PLAY FOR?

Ordinarily we split our show into either two sets of 60 minutes or three sets of 40 minutes, but this is entirely adaptable to your requirements.


WHERE ARE YOU BASED AND WHERE ARE YOU WILLING TO TRAVEL?

We are based in London but are more than happy to travel.
