Frequently Asked Questions
How much does the band charge?
Pricing varies depending on travelling distance, size of venue, time of day required, set length and the nature of the function. Please contact us, detailing as much information about your booking as possible and we'll be happy to provide a quotation.
How far will the band travel?
We are based in Bath, however depending on availability we are happy to perform throughout the UK.
How long do you play for?
Our standard set is in two halves, with a short break in between. Our total performance time is generally two hours, not including the break, however we can adjust our set to suit your needs.
What type of set can I expect?
Our standard set covers all the classic Blues Brothers songs, with a few extras thrown in from the Commitments and Aretha. Depending on the type of event we can include a short 'party section', featuring well known floor-fillers, past and present. For details of our (ever increasing!) set, please contact us.
Do you take requests?
We always aim to please and wherever possible we will try to learn additional material to suit your event. (Please remember we are, however, a Blues Brothers tribute band!) When making an initial booking enquiry, please include full details of any requests, as pricing will vary depending on music availability and rehearsal time constraints etc.
Do you supply all your own equipment?
Yes, we'll turn up to your event with everything we need. If you can supply the power, we'll entertain the masses! Our standard lighting option will set the mood (and flash accordingly!), however should you be looking for a full professional lighting experience just let us know when making your booking and we'll arrange with our experienced lighting designer at an additional cost.
How much space does the band require?
A difficult one! As we're a 13-piece band, the more space the better really, however we have squeezed into some small spaces in the past! Wherever possible, the band will need somewhere to change and securely store instrument cases/belongings during the performance, and Red Bull always helps to keep the brass boys going!
Do you have a demo CD?
We do! We will gladly supply a copy should you be considering booking us for your event. Don't forget you can listen to audio samples and watch our promotional showreel on our Multimedia page.
Will we also need a DJ?
We can provide background music when the band are setting up, during our interval and after the show, so booking a DJ is not a necessity. We are, however, experienced in co-ordinating with DJs and other entertainment on the night to ensure your event runs seamlessly.
Is the band available for charity gigs/fundraisers?
Yes, we play a number of these gigs throughout the year, raising money for good causes such as 'Ted's Big Day Out' at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. For charity gigs we can offer highly discounted rates, generally only charging a small fee to cover our travelling expenses. Please contact us to discuss your requirements in more detail.
Is the band insured against accidents?
Yes, we are fully covered by public liability insurance, and haven't had any accidents to date, apart from the time we played 'We Will Rock You' as part of our party set!
