Below is a list of responses to the questions we are asked most often. If you have a question and it's not answered here, then please contact us.
What music does forty45 play?
We're very versatile and aim to provide a service that suits the occasion. Our repertiore covers rock, pop and dance classics from the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s and up to the present day. We're able to tailor our sets in length and content so that your needs are met. Want to dance all night? No problem. Want to rock-out? No problem. Want to sing along to classics? No problem. Just specify what your preference is and we'll design a set that works for you. Given a bit of notice we can even learn specific tracks just for you if it makes your night go better. The more information you give us when you book the better we can meet your needs. So tell us what you want!
How long do you play for?
It's entirely up to you! Common set lengths are 2 x 1 hour and 3 x 45 minutes, but these are just a guide and we will do everything we can to accomodate your requirements.
What equipment do you have and what will I need to supply?
forty45 supply all (fully PAT tested) audio visual equipment as part of the booking. Our PA system can also be used to play CDs or MP3s before and after our sets - we can also supply a DJ if that's what you need. All you will need to supply is an area for us to perform in with a few power points - oh, and the guests!
Can I see you play before booking?
Of course! We are a very hard working band and although we specialise in private parties and functions, we always make time to play at local pubs and clubs. Check out our upcoming gigs page to find a gig near you. Depending on the venue, we often include some Live Band Karaoke as part of our sets, so you can even be part of the band for a song or two!
What will you do at my event when you're not playing?
We fully understand that we are not party guests, and to that end, we will usually either leave the venue altogether until we are about to play, or hide ourselves quietly away in a corner.
How much do you charge?
We don't have a standard price list because we understand that every event is different. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and we will be happy to provide a quote.
How can I book you?
The easiest way to make a booking is firstly check out our upcoming gigs page to make sure that we are not already booked on the day of your event, then use the details on our contact us page.
