How long has the band been together ? - Mixed Emotion have been playing together for over 21 years. And Colin and Tammy have been married for 20 of those, so there's no danger of us splitting up. We have been providing entertainment for Weddings, Birthday Parties, Anniversaries, and Balls and pretty much know the secrets to keeping the dancefloor full all night and raise the roof with our 'unique' Grande Finale!!!
How many Vocalists and how do you cover illness ? - We have 3 vocalists providing harmonies and all singing lead so we're not going to let you down if one of us has a cold. Three vocals make a huge difference to the sound of the band and the range of songs which we can sing utilising the male and female voices.
How much space do you need ? - We play a range of venues from intimate rooms to town halls and we have a range of amplification and speakers to suit the venue without being too loud. We can also fit into the tiniest of spaces as well as fill the largest of stages.
Can you provide a Ceilidh ? Traditional Scottish music is a great ice breaker for many weddings and we have listed the standard sets within the playlist, and we will guide your dancers through the basic dances. We can play about 30mins and all the music is live and we don't use cds. This is normally included for no extra cost. If you don't want ceilidh simply let us know, however it is such a good icebreaker at weddings and we'll talk everyone through.
What happens during the break ? - Mixed Emotion take their break to suit the client normally when your buffet is served. There's no need for a disco as we provide music whether it be background or something lively to keep the party atmosphere going, we can accommodate your requirements. We can also offer the use of our PA system for your own ipod during the break if required at no extra cost.
What equipment do you have ? - Mixed Emotion have coloured flood lighting for the stage and background lighting, and also sound controlled effects lighting to liven up the dance area. We carry a full spare PA system to every function so we don't let you down in case of an unlikely fault. All equipment is normally no more than 3 years old to maintain the highest audio/visual quality.
How Long does it take to set-up ? For weddings it normally takes 45 - 60mins to set up a room for the evening guests after the meal. - Mixed Emotion have streamlined the set-up process to 45 mins from entry to the function and 10mins to get changed. We will always make contact with the venue to assess the set-up requirements to minimise disruption to your function.
Are Discounts Available ? - Naturally demand is higher for Friday & Saturdays during the Summer months, so we can offer competitive prices for midweek or out of season functions. We can also augment the line-up with additional musicians or reduce to a duo if required. Prices are based on 8:00pm to 12:00 Midnight with a 30min break. Extra time is negotiable, but must be agreed prior to the event.
