Frequently Asked Questions

Do you supply P.A. System / Disco Lights / CD Player / iPod?
Yes, all of the above, LSC are a fully contained outfit. Our disco music is provided by laptop on shuffle play (which cross-fades the songs to give a professional DJ like playback). We provide this during our set breaks and until 30 mins after finishing our set. If you'd like us to continue playing disco music any later then we can do this, just clarify when requesting a quotation.

How flexible is the band size?
Our basic offer consists of the 6-piece band, this is our recommended line-up and gives us flexibility to play most songs in the set.

We can reduce to a 5 or 4-piece if budget/space is a constraint, this limits the songs we can play, as indicated in the Play List on our Music page.

A Brass Section can be added to give a fuller sound, allowing those songs with a "8" in the Play List to be played, and complementing many other songs with a warm soulful sound.

Dinner Jazz piano/singer, and a DJ can also be added if required.

How long do you play for?

Performance formats can be tailored to suit, however they usually take the form of 2 x 1hr or 3 x 40min sets, with disco music using a laptop on shuffle play provided during the interludes.
How much floor space do you need?
Depends on band size. The base 6-piece band can fit in surprisingly small spaces, about 11ft x 8ft is the minimum we'll need. For the larger 7 or 8 piece band about 15ft x 10ft is comfortable, and if there is acres of space then we can easily spread out and fill it!

How much do you charge?
The price is dependant on many factors:

  • The band size required
  • How far we have to travel from Central London
  • Whether or not the venue has its own PA/Lighting system (we can find out for you) and if not, how large the venue is (so we can determine if additional sound re-inforcement is required)
  • How long you want us to play for
  • How long before the gig you want us to be set up for
  • What day of the week and time of the night you'd like us to play

So it's always essential to contact us for a quotation, but the auto quote on the Contacts page will give you a good idea.

Do I need to pay a deposit?
A ?50 deposit is payable to secure a booking.

How much notice do you need?
As long as we are free we can play at short notice. Of course however, the more notice you give us the better the chance that we'll be available.

Can we plan the setlist ourselves?
Absolutely. Just pick what you'd like us to play from our repertoire. We can advise you from our experience which songs work best for what you are trying to achieve.

The songs in our Play List have an average playing time of 3 minutes so a typical performance contains approximately 30 songs plus encores.

Will I need a DJ?

We provide disco music using a laptop on shuffle play (which cross-fades the songs to give a professional DJ like playback). We provide this during our set breaks and until 30 mins after finishing our set. If you'd like us to continue playing disco music any later then we can do this, just clarify when requesting a quotation.

However we do know a DJ who can complement our set very well, so please let us know if you'd like this (subject to availability) included in your quotation.

How long will you need to set up?

1.5 hours for the 6-piece band, and 2 hours for a 7/8 piece band.

Does the band require food and non-alcoholic drinks?

Yes please.

Do you play special requests (e.g., Wedding First Dances)?
Yes. Just let us know what songs (up to 2 provided free of charge) you'd like us to play, please make sure you give us at least 3 weeks notice though to give us all chance to learn and rehearse them.
