We use this information along with our professional judgment in selecting music and in honoring or declining specific requests.

However our music collection is quite large and does include most common requests.
However, if you give us a request in advance (at least 2 weeks), we will make every effort to obtain it for you.
If arranged before your event we can connect an i-pod or similar to our systems and we can also play special music from phones supplied by you or your guests. Just let us know what you need, so we can have the right connectors.

We normally arrive 75 – 90 minutes before the begining of your event, if you require us to set up earlier wait time is availible at half the normal extra time rate.
75 – 90 minutes allows ample time to be completely setup, a sound check to be carried out and elimination of any potential problems prior to the begining of your event.
Q. What type of sound and lighting equipment will be used?
We use computer based digital music systems together with professional sound and lighting equipment.
Inferior equipment, often homemade, used in an effort to cut costs, can result in static, inadequate bass, distortion and generally poor sound.
We pride ourselves on being elegant. While referral business is always very much appreciated, we feel that our services speak for themselves. We therefore do not display any banners, logos, or signs on any of the equipment or elsewhere in the function room nor place any business cards on the dinner tables. Should any of your guests wish a business card for future reference, one will be discreetly provided to them on their request.
