Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) which we are asked from time to time.
Please contact us if you have a query that has not been addressed here.

How long have you been in the music industry?
About 40 years! Our first public function was in the mid 70's. In this time, we have worked for both the BBC, and some commercial radio stations, several record companies, some hotel chains and most recently, the Bluewater Shopping Centre.

I have had bad experiences with Disco's in the past. Can you assure me that your Disco will be different?
Hopefully, our 'Testimonials' section speaks for itself. These are all genuine comments, and we are proud of our reputation. We turn up in good time, quietly set up and play background music to start with where appropriate. What we do NOT do is play unsuitable music at deafening volumes. We constantly watch your guests to make sure that even those closest to the loudspeakers can communicate without shouting at each other. We want everyone to have a memorable evening for all the right reasons. After all, at least 70% of our bookings come from customers that we have worked for before, their families or their guests!

Do you have a PAT testing certificate? Our venue requires this.
Yes we have. We can present it on the night, or e-mail a copy to the venue in advance.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
Yes. Full cover through the Musicians Union. Again, copies can be provided as above.

Apart from the music, what other equipment do you carry?
A good selection of lighting which is tailored to suit the function. A Shure SM58 microphone which I use myself for making announcements, and a radiomicrophone for yourself or guests for speeches or thanks if required.
Please let me know if you have any special requirements in this area, particularly if yourself or any guests are epilepsy sufferers, and we can bring along more discreet lighting that they will find more acceptable.

Do you work to a music playlist?
Not usually. Every function is unique, and although there may well be some 'crossover' songs, in the main we play a mixture of proven music tracks mixed with current songs and requests from the dancefloor.

Do you use a laptop to play your music?
No, but we do use high bitrate MP3's played via a professional rack-mount music computer system. This is far more reliable, and the sound quality is of broadcast standard. We also have a back up system if this were to fail.

What kind of music do you carry?
As I said previously, every function is unique, and so the music will vary from one function to the next.
For example, you wouldn't expect to hear the same music at a 15th Birthday Party as you would at a Golden Wedding Anniversary, and our song selection reflects this. We carry a very large collection of music (14,000 plus songs) from the 40's through to current 10's chart and dance, and from most genres, but we only pick appropriate music to suit the age range of the guests at your function from our library of songs.
On an average evening you only get to play about 100 songs, (about 20 songs per hour), so there is absolutely no chance of running out of music to play!

If we supply you with a list of songs, will you play them?
We will if you're really sure you want us to, but do keep in mind that the best functions are the ones where the music is chosen to suit the moment. In other words, we don't know what you and your guests will want to dance to at 8:00, 9:00 or 10:00, so working to a predetermined list is actually quite restricting and if you've only got certain songs on a list, not only do you have to work with a very limited library, but you also have to try to pick songs that will fit together and blend nicely from one song on the list to the next.

What about requests from our guests?
Yes, we can do that on the night, as long as they are relatively mainstream songs, and not obscure album tracks. Generally speaking, these tend to clear the dancefloor and as such should be avoided. Our job is to get people on the floor to have a good time. After all, this is where most of our repeat business comes from.

We have some older guests attending. Can you cater for them also?
Yes we can. Even if they require Waltzes, Foxtrots, Quicksteps, Cha Cha's and so on it is not a problem, and we mix in as few or as many as required. This is often requested at Dinner Dances and we cater for all tastes.
The recent renewed interest in this type of music has attracted a much younger audience, and we are well placed to deliver a good cross-section of music spread over many decades where required.
