How much space do you need?

As we’re just a duo, we can make do with a small amount of space for a stage (2.5m across by 2m wide).

We generally suggest a 30 minute set up at a time convenient for you, then the first live set at around 8:30-9:30 pm, then a DJ set until 10:15 pm, then second live set 10:15-11:15 pm, with DJing until the end.


Can I pick the bands playlist?

Yes, although we have lots of experience of what works, so would be happy to discuss.


Where will you travel to?

The moon if necessary, although costs vary - we are based in London.

We currently have a Friday night residency at a tequila bar called “El Patron” in Putney, South West London, and we play at various other public bars and clubs in London at different times. Do check with us via email for exact dates.


Will you learn our special song?



Is the video on your website a true reflection of the band?
