** IMPORTANT- Please Note:
- The band prefer a stage where ever possible but they are happy to perform on the floor as long as there is a 3ft space between them and the dance floor. This is for the safety of the band members and their equipment and due to the high energy level of their performance.

- Under no circumstances are audience members/guests to enter the stage area and touch or try to use any of the equipment. The band prides themselves on excellent quality gear and therefore do not let non band members use it.
