Presentation is very important to us, and we are well rehearsed, dress up and 'put on a show'. We like the band to be a unit, musically and as a group of friends and think our enjoyment comes through in our work. We play at parties, anniversaries, weddings, charity events, supper dances and, of course, pubs and clubs. We are keen to play specialist jazz venues.
We provide a PA system - 2 powered speakers, mixer, mics and stands, cables.
