Below are some Frequently Asked Questions. Click on the question to reveal the answer. If you have a question that is not shown then please get in touch.

TEN – is a “temporary event notice” – which some venues will ask for. These are issued by the local council – and we can apply on line  for one of these on your behalf if your venue management ask for one.  There is currently a “government fixed”  cost of £21.00 for issuing these. If you need any further help on this – please  contact Eric on 07967 434077.
Some venues will ask for a risk assessment to be provided by suppliers at an event – such as Caterers, Alcoholic drink providers, and  entertainers. Typical venues that will ask for these are “special venues”  run by public authorities etc We can provide a risk assessment tailored to your event and venue in a format that complies with HSE requirements. If you are asked for one  – please do get in touch  with Eric on 07967 434077
Yes!  This is most important!   We have full public liability insurance cover (PLI)  of £2M + £10M, and all our equipment is regularly “PAT” tested.   Certificates  for PLI and PAT are available on our website in PDF format  if you need copies. Some venues will need to see these before allowing us to perform on their premises.  We suggest you do check as soon as possible if your venue requires certificates of PLI and PAT
We are based in Bridgnorth, Shropshire and we will travel to venues throughout the UK.
We do and this is optional! You may have a family member that has a hidden talent! You may want your friends and family to get up and sing for a bit of fun. Karaoke is optional, do let us know if this is something you are interested in when booking.
Yes, this is usually done before the first wedding dance song but this is optional as you may want to cut the cake after the speeches during the Wedding Breakfast. We can also announce the evening buffet etc.
We finish at midnight (on the basis the venue allows us 1 1/2 hours to pack away). If we need to be out of the building by midnight we would need to finish earlier so we can pack away safely. If you want us through to 1am, please let us know in advance as this may incur a further charge.
Yes we can, do let us know your thoughts and ideas and as long as we have enough time to rehearse it that would be great (unless we sing it already of course)!
Yes, Eric is also a pianist and has a mobile keyboard (that sounds like a real piano)! Eric can play the keyboard as your guests our arriving or maybe during the wedding breakfast. I can also sing along side Eric on the keyboard. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
It takes us two hours to fully set-up / sound check and get changed ready for us to perform. This is based on good easy access to the function room and no stairs. *Please let us know if there are stairs to get to the function room*. We will discuss with you a suitable time to access the venue to set-up, as we will work around the Wedding Breakfast timings / room turn over (if applicable).
Yes, we can provide background music whilst people are eating and talking. We would allow 45 minutes for this.
Yes, and if you have any children attending we would be would be happy to play some tracks for them to keep them entertained! Children love our lighting! We also have a bubble machine. We advise this to be used though on a carpeted area as the surface can get slippy on the dance floor.
Ideally no, as Eric does like to go out into the audience with his electric guitar and interact with the audience! Of course if there is a stage at your venue we can work with that also. Please let us know if there is a stage as some venues use ‘mobile’ made up stages that are made up before the event that we wouldn’t require for our act.
Kelly DJ’s between “live” performances so you have music flowing all evening! As an idea you could even hand out some ‘song request slips’ with your Evening Invites so your guests can select a ‘couple’ of their all time favourite tunes. Once all slips have been returned please e-mail the chosen songs to us and we can create a play list for you and your guests.
After we perform your first wedding dance song,  we can follow this with  a 1 hour “set of live set” of music. After this we would suggest the evening buffet as this is a good breaking off point. We do two hours in total of “live” music followed by our disco.
Yes, please do give us ample notice so we can rehearse your chosen song. If we feel the song is not suited for our vocals we will let you know and we can arrange for the original to be played or we can look at an alternative for you

The Licensing Act 2003 now covers Public entertainment. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport advice is quite useful and clear: Any performances of live music that take place in private homes and gardens for private parties and weddings will not be licensable unless the host charges  guests to attend and with the intention of making a profit.” Generally though – most functions are held at a hotel, restaurant or similar sort of venue, who should already hold an appropriate licence covering both the supply of alcohol and what types  entertainment are allowed. If you intend to hold an event at another type  venue  different from those above –  you can apply for a Temporary Event Notice  (TEN) from your local authority.   (see our  FAQ on “ten” ) It’s a good idea to check in good time, well before your event, with your  local authority or at The Department for Culture, Media and Sport for more guidance. PRS for music who collect royalties on behalf of composers and publishers does not require a licence for a private event.   Their guidance is: “PRS for Music does not make a charge for functions of a purely domestic or family nature, such as wedding receptions, christening parties or domestic birthday parties, when: attendance of guests is by personal invitation only (except for staff, performers, etc.); the function is held in a privately-booked room, not at that time open to the general public; there is no form of charge made for admission; there is no financial gain to the function’s organiser or host (e.g. the person hiring the venue).”
