Other bands have a Male and Female Singer. Can we add a female singer to OK!FUN!?

How much space do you require? And do you require a stage?

A:

Ideal dimensions are 14ft long x 12ft wide or larger. Despite this, any space can be made to work. It's great to rock on a stage, but we don't have one and we don't require one.

Q:

Do you offer a DJ service?

A:

Technically we do not offer a Dj Service, however we will play "DJ" style party playlists on our breaks without any additional charge. Additionally, once our performance concludes, we will continue doing this for half an hour. You can create your own spotify playlist for us to play, or we can provide one for you. If you prefer a DJ, we can suggest Martin and the team at SoundStripe Music CO. They are amazing!

Q:

How long does it take for you to set up? And when do you set up?

A:

Setup of our sound system, a sound check, and final preparations for the show takes about 3 hours. Our team always works with venue and party planners to schedule a set up time that is convenient for both of them. We understand that every event is unique, and has its own unique set up time. We never want to be setting up or making noise while photos or other important events are taking place. Once our setup is complete, we can't move.

Q:

When does the band start?

A:

This is completely up to you and your schedule on the day. For evening events, we find it's often best to start the band at around 8:30/9pm but this is purely a guide. For weddings, We will work with your wedding planner and be ready for the reception once the speeches have ended.

Q:

What will the band wear?

A:

The way you dress is a reflection of how you view your work and how others see you and your company.  We Dress to Impress.  Unless your event has a specific theme, we will always wear trendy suits.
