Questions or concerns

 

Once you’ve decided we’re the right band for your event, you will have a dedicated event coordinator at our agency Alive Network who will be on hand to liaise with you on any issues, questions or concerns. We’ll be in touch around 3 weeks before your event to run through the details and finalise any last minute arrangements. 

 

What We'll Do At Your Event


Arrival, Set Up & Soundcheck

Upon arrival at your venue, we will come and find the venue manager or event organiser and find out where we are to perform. Then we'll begin unloading and setting up the stage area and perform a full volume sound check to make sure everything sounds perfect.

This usually takes 1 hour.


After Set Up & Soundcheck 

After setup we can offer DJ playlists to suit your event, or accommodate song choices of the client. We recommend the client can create a shared Spotify playlist that they can update right up to the last minute that we will be happy to accommodate.

Once we've set up and the background music is playing, we will have something to eat and get ready for our performance. Please provide us with a hot meal and somewhere to change that isn't the toilet!
