FAQ’s, Terms & Conditions
How long do you play for?
We play 2x 1:15 minute sets. At most weddings there is normally a break of around 20 minutes when tea/coffee and snack are served. We normally will coordinate with hotel staff on exactly when that will happen and will tailor our sets to make that work. If a wedding is running late we can opt to play a 2:15 set straight through, indeed you can opt for this also if there is no break scheduled for your night
What time do you arrive?
In plenty of time! We will coordinate with you what time you envisage your first dance being and work from there. Normally we aim to arrive while you are still eating your meal and will wait till you are done to load in. Nominally 8:30pm seems to work well for most weddings.
How long does it take you to set up?
it takes us between 30/45 minutes to set up depending on the complexity of the load in at the venue. Its quick and efficient, and its normally just enough time for your guests to get up and mingle after the meal without it being too long.
Can you do an early set up?
We rarely do, but it is something that can be done if you feel it will really benefit your day. Depending on the location of your wedding in relation to our home base (Galway) we will have to add an additional charge for this service. Please contact us if this is something you would like to be quoted for.
Can I, my uncle, cousin, brother, friend etc sing a song with you guys?
Absolutely! We love when we have talented friends and family join us for a song on stage. If you have someone who would like to contribute a song to our performance at your day, tell us about it and we will be happy to facilitate and support that. Its great fun!
