FAQ's

How much time do you need to set up, and pack down?

A comfortable set-up and sound check time is a maximum of 1 hour depending on the venue, it's access and the event.
(We can have background music playing within 20 mins of access to the room)

Some events require more equipment, and as a result the set-up time is increased. De-rig time is usually a 45 mins, again depending on the venue.

What are your power requirements?

A safe and constant supply of electricity terminating in a ideally 4 x 13amp sockets on or near the stage area.

What happens if there's a problem with the volume?

We have performed at hundreds of events, all of which have very different volume requirements.
(including venues with sound limiters)

As a live band Groovejet by its nature is lively, and requires a certain volume level to achieve the best atmosphere , we will always set and adjust our volume to a reasonable level in line with the clients and venues requirements.
(Don't be afraid to ask to reduce the volume,we want you to enjoy your event)

Do you require overnight accommodation?

This is dependant on the distance travelled from London, and the finish time of the event.
As a general rule though, we do not usually require overnight accommodation.

How much room do you need?

A minimum performance area of 4 m x 2.5 m.
(If a stage area is supplied it must be of solid and safe construction)

We normally liaise with the venue or event co-ordinator before hand to discuss specific requirements.

How long do you play for?

Groovejet usually perform 3 x 45 minutes sets for a wedding reception or 2 x 1 hr sets for corporate functions ,during the evening we can supply party cd music played in between sets to compliment the evening at no extra cost.
(The above times are flexible depending on the events running time)

Are you registered for V.A.T?

Yes we are registered for VAT, please let us know if you require a vat invoice.

Can you incorporate a themed event in your show?

Yes, we can alter the Groovejet show to reflect the theme of the event.

A typical example would be a James Bond theme night where we start the evening with five 007 theme tunes and included other classic bond themes in the show.

If specific tracks have to be learnt and rehearsed there may be additional musicians required.

What is 'Bandioke'?

Bandioke is where you are the star, singing in front of a live band.

We have had many occasions where guests have asked us if they get up and sing with the band at weddings and birthday parties, so as an added feature, if you want it, we can cater for a few songs or a whole evening of 'Bandioke' the choice is yours, our own singer acts as the compare an introduces the singer
(and she helps you if you forget the words)

Just let us know if you want to add this feature into the evening.
(no extra cost)

Can you supply background music?

Yes, we can supply background music from CD/MP3 in between sets for your event at no extra charge.

If however you want something a little more special then you could always sample the Groovejet live dinner Jazz.
