Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, we offer both Acoustic and DJ sets to cover all vibes. We can design the musical flow for your whole day or you can book us for specific parts of the day. We can tailor our sets to suit you.
Yes. You can download it on our 'Weddings' or 'Corporate Events & Parties' page.
Our sets vary depending on the occasion and how it flows with your event or wedding. Most of our acoustic sets are 3 hours (including two 15 minute breaks). When it comes to the DJ, we can perform until late. Chat to us to figure out the best times to have the music at your event or wedding.
Bare minimum 2 months for acoustic choices and 1 week for DJ.
We arrive 1 - 1.5 hours before the event (or ceremony in the case of a wedding) to set up and sound check. This time may vary depending on certain factors in the planning process as we like to make sure we have ample time to set up and be ready.
We have a high quality sound system, lighting (for the evening and dance floor) and a wireless mic that can be used for speeches (or the celebrant in the case of a wedding). We also have a battery powered speaker system for any off-the-grid performances.
NB: We hire a sound system for performances that require us to fly (ie lower North Island & South Island)
We have a song list (see question 2) which you are free to choose from. If you'd like us to learn something specific for a special moment, please let us know and we'll be happy to cater to this where we can.
Yes. However, we need to know any special songs you want before the day as we cannot stream them on the day. You are welcome to curate playlists of your favourites songs to send to us a minimum of 1 week before your event.
Best practice is to cater for the vendors, especially in the case of a wedding where we are performing all day. We always appreciate it but ultimately it's up to you.
Sometimes we are included in the seating plans but most often we are given a designated area to eat. This is better for us as it gives us a chance to get vocal rest in between sets so we can deliver our best performance.
We travel all over New Zealand and even to Australia. Travel, accomodation and gear hire costs will be additional to the performance fee.
