Interval Music

We normally play a three hour programme, typically comprising three 45 minute sets, with two intervals.

The music, sets and intervals can be tailored to fit in with your programme of events, including shorter or longer programmes.

We can also play as a duo or trio for cocktails/dinner, followed by the full band for dancing.

When we are not performing on stage, we have a range of CDs which we can use to provide interval music if required.
