As the hirer of a live cover band it is very likely that your wedding or function venue will ask you for your act’s PAT certificates. For many this request causes the raise of an eyebrow and a follow up of… “what is that?”. We’ll try to give you a quick overview of what PAT testing is and what you need to know about it. Read more
There are some songs that rightly or wrongly have stood the test of time and feature heavily today in most cover band’s kit bag of tunes. They may not see the lights of the stage at every gig but secretly we know ‘em. And you know we know ‘em. In fact it’s almost a dead cert that they’ll make an appearance at a handful of gigs each year, in some cases almost every gig. They are great for weddings and parties and generally aiding the vocal get together of a large audience. Are they the coolest songs in the world? Probably not. Are they the most technically challenging and engaging to play? Not really. But here is the !daft! take on 10 songs every rock/pop party cover band should know and expect to play, if not for their own, then at least for the audience’s enjoyment. Which after all is slightly more important. Read more
Ever heard the term “sound limiter”? Our wedding and party clients often ask us what one is and that’s only IF they have been told that their venue has one, or been knowledgeable enough to ask. Checking whether your wedding venue has a sound limiter is something you should do early in the planning process, you will be investing months organising your perfect day and spending thousands of pounds making sure every tiny detail is taken care of… but have you ensured that these electro-jobsworths aren’t sat there ready to cause unexpected havoc at your big day?

!daft! were outstanding and such great fun. They made the night a huge amount of fun.
We had the absolute pleasure of Daft! perform at my wife’s 40th party last weekend. From the beginning of our dealings with Graeme which started 3 months ago, he has been a wealth of great advice, professional throughout, flexible and amenable to our every need (and we had many).

From the minute I spoke to Graeme I knew we were in safe hands. Graeme was easy to work with and worked with all the requests that we asked for our evening. Then came the actual event….. The band were absolutely superb! Our guests could not stop raving about how fantastic the band played, and how they made the evening go with a real bang.
Sam and Andy Partridge, Wedding
