It’s your night and we welcome suggestions for songs that you like or don’t like, and will create a set-list for your night that fits in with the atmosphere you want to create. Based on our professional experience, we will of course recommend a set that will keep the dance floor filled all night.

Can we choose the first dance songs?

You can choose your first dance to be played by the band. If the song is new to us we would require at least 2 months’ notice in order to be sure to do your first dance song justice.

We also offer playing an original recording through the PA if you’d prefer. For playing a recording, we would just need 7 days’ notice as to the song, just so that we can source it and make sure it’s on our system.
