Our very versatile band are very busy at certain times of the year, and have had to turn down a number of great bookings each year, so do contact us early if you hope to book the band. Our calendar generally gets built by early spring each year, so don't delay in sending us queries, though do not be afraid to try 'slightly less in advance' and we will see how we can best help you.
