Frequently asked questions

Do you travel?

Of course! We love to travel! We are based on Athens, Greece but we can travel anywhere in Greece or Abroad! We do charge extra for the time depending on the location and you’ll need to cover transportation and accommodation for all band members. Ask our producer for a quote based on the specifics of your event. PS - if it’s within a couple hours, that’s included within our basic package at no added charge.

What does the band wear?

It depends on the formality of the event and the weather conditions. Please share what you have in mind!

Do you play corporate events?

We do! See our events page for more details.

Can the band play on the cocktail hour and after party?

Absolutely! We’re an all-inclusive band with a broad musical repertoire. Want a jazz set for your cocktail hour, and dance party reception? You’ve got it. Speak to our producer for more specific details and requests.

What style of music do you play?

We play a long repertoire or funk, soul, disco, swing, dance hits and old shcool 70's to 90's! You can get an idea of the musical styles you can choose from on our media page.

Can you learn a new song for us ?

We have a solid repertoire of songs that will please all of your guests from your 6-year old niece to your grandfather. Of course, If you want us to add a couple of songs on your special night that can be arranged. Just send them to us and discuss details with our production manager!

How long does the band play for?

Our typical quote, and the industry standard, is for a 1.00 - 1.30 hour event. If you require a longer event and more sets, we are happy to discuss adding 1 extra hour. Also, please know that we are always flexible to your needs. This 1.30 hour timeline is our standard recommendation, but anything can be customized to your plan. Talk to us about your ideas and dreams and we’ll do our best to accommodate!

Does the band provide a sound system?

In case you do not have a sound and lighting company to cover your event we will be pleased to make you an offer from our expert collababorate. We can provide anything from a sound system, to backline, stage and lighting for your event. If you want to have your own set up we will provide you with our technical rider which covers all our needs for a great performance!

Can I see the band perform before I book them?

You sure can! Check out our list of local live showcases on the See Us Live page.

How much do I pay and when?

When you book the band, you’ll need to pay a 30% deposit to secure your date. The remaining amount is due on the same day of your event preferably before the show. On corporate events we usually sign a personal aggreement with details of the event.

Who will be my contact on the day of?

The band's Production Manager is always the person who handles all our booking details from the first minute until the end. She accompanies us on the event night and is the one you can contact concerning any questions you might have.

What does the band require on the night of the event?

Our technical rider will be provided to you or to your event planner stating the band technical needs. We will also need electrical power and a covered space on a flat, hard, dry surface to play. Although a stage is not always required it would be good to have one. We will also need some alcoholic beverages for the band members and in case your event is outside Athens we will be needing at least one meal per person or a extra charge per person for their nutrition.
