HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
This depends very much on the individual circumstances of your event. We consider the location, duration and timing of the performance and will happily provide you with a quote on request (use our enquiry form here).
HOW LONG DO YOU PLAY FOR?
Usually 2 hours. Most people ask for two 'sets' of 60 minutes each. This could alternatively be spread out over three 40 minute sets. Ultimately, the choice is yours, but two 1 hour sets with a 30 minute break is the norm.
We also have a variety of dance-floor / party music that we can play through our sound system during the periods where we are not performing - thereby eliminating the need for (and cost of) a separate disco.
HOW FAR DO THE LIONELS TRAVEL?
The Lionels are available throughout the UK and Europe and are more than happy to travel. The bands fee just reflects their extra time and travel expenditure.
DO YOU TAKE REQUESTS?
Where possible we can also work out a special request you may have to further personalise the occasion.
CAN I COME AND SEE YOU PLAY?
Due to the nature of our engagements (corporate events, weddings etc) we unfortunately do not have many opportunities when you can come and see the band play live. This being the case we try to play three to four public shows a year, where anyone is more than welcome to come along. Alternatively, visit our video page for some footage of live performances over the last year.
Hopefully we've covered all of your questions or queries regarding how we operate, however if you do have any special requests or queries outside of what's covered, do not hesitate to include this in our enquiry form.
