Playlist

Live music that’s just right for your event

Our playlist for weddings, parties, clubs, pubs and restaurants is always evolving, so this page can only ever provide a snapshot of what we play. Each set list is tailored to the event, so we can play the right mix of songs for your guests and audience, whatever the occasion.

We’re always happy to consider special requests that are not on the song list and, for weddings were are happy to learn two songs of your choice. So far the most unusual first dance we’ve ever played is Cornershop’s Brimful of Asha!

For special occasions we advise clients to select several numbers we absolutely must play and those we must not go near. Then just leave the rest up to us; we’ll make sure your guests are entertained, and generally adapt our set lists on the fly to suit the situation.
