Lindsey Carruthers

We just wanted to write to you to thank you again for an amazing set at our wedding in Broxmouth Park in Dunbar a few weeks ago. You guys played a blinder! So many of our guests came up to us and said how amazing you were. They were loving the indie tunes! We’ve always believed a band can make or break a wedding and you guys certainly made ours – thank you so much!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much time do you need for set up & sound check? 

We require one hour to set up and soundcheck

What are your standard performance times? 

4 hours with a 30min break usually during the buffet.

I'm not sure what my timings are going to be yet, is there any flexibility on the standard timings? 

Yes, though may impact our fee. 

Can I pick the songs that you'll play on the night? 

If there are any special requests we would be more than happy to facilitate. 

Will you learn our first dance? 

Of course we love learning first dance requests. 

Will the band provide background music during your break? 

Yes. In fact, if you would like to send us a Spotify playlist we can play this on the night!

Can you provide a ceilidh set? If so, could you give us more information about this - how long does it last, what instruments do you play, can you call the dances for our guests? 

We intersperse ceilidh dances in our set. So, we usually have one or two ceilidh dances within the first hour of playing and can always bring back more ceilidh towards the end of the night. If you wish, we can play more or less ceilidh. It is entirely up to you! We approach ceilidh with a modern, upbeat, rocky vibe so use electric instruments to put a spin on the traditional ceilidh format. 

What do you think your clients love most about your performances?  

We are a fun and energetic band that know exactly how to get your guests onto the dance floor. Our clients have often commented on our eclectic set list; we have something for everyone to move to! 

Do you offer any other add-on options? 

We can offer an additional DJ set if you want to keep the party going. We also offer a solo guitar performance from our guitar player Sam VK (see page) who can play during your ceremony and/or dinner. Similarly, we can offer a stripped-back solo or duo performance from our singer and guitar player; perfect for drinks reception! In short, whatever you can think of; we’ve got you covered!
