Frequently Asked Questions

You are here:

Here are the answers to some questions we are often asked.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.  If you want to know when we are playing in your area you can email us on the ‘Contact’ page or check the calendar on the bookings page.

We would love to see at one of our ‘gigs’ soon.  Many of them are in local pubs and are almost always free to enter.  The owners have booked ‘The Great Mates!’, and other bands, to get people to visit their venues.  The more people that come along, the better the night is for everyone!

We hope to see you soon.

I need you to play for four hours between 8pm to 12pm. Can you do this?

In theory we could, but we certainly would not choose to! However, we appreciate that some funtions require that the entertainment keeps on going. Our solution is to provide party/disco/dance music played back through our sound system during the intervals when we are not playing.

Do you play Country & Western/Disco/Heavy Rock/Traditional Irish/Blues/Modern Chart music?

We wish we could, but like most musicians, we have chosen an area to specialise in. This is described in more detail on the 'Music' page. We believe we play a fairly broad range of classic guitar based songs from the 1950's to the present day. We particularly focus on the 'Sixties' as there are so many classic songs from this period that love and enjoy playing.

How much do you charge?

Please contact us on the above phone number or via our contact page. We are very competitively priced. Tell us what you need and we will give you a price. There is no obligation.

How far will you travel?

Most of our work is in Kent and the south east. We have travelled out of this area and we're always willing to consider offers. However, the extra travel expenses and time, as well as possibly overnight accomodation does increase the costs considerably. Please feel free to enquire though.

Are there any hidden charges?

No. We will never ask for more than the fee we have agreed with you. This would only occur if you asked us to play for longer/travel further/arrive earlier etc. than had been initially agreed.
