Frequently Asked Questions
Can the band learn a song to play for our party?
Of course! All of our songs are especially written for The Daisy Chains and we are happy to add a bespoke arrangement for you for your special occasion. We are also happy to organise a song to walk down the aisle to- please get in touch for more details. We recently played 'At Last' by Etta James as a first dance request. Instead of it staying as a slow dance, we whacked up the tempo half way through, added some screaming brass, killer Rock'n'Roll vocals and the crowd was rockin'! One happy couple!
We only ask you give us some notice before the event to organise the arrangement for you.

How long do you play for?
3x 40min sets or 2x 1hour sets. Let us know what suits you best!
What happens when the band are not playing?
An MP3 set of mellow background music is played during dinner (if required). During the gig the girls will seamlessly end their set and start the playlist of recorded 50's music to keep the party going!
We play Trumpet, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Electric Guitar, Electric Bass and Drums. We all sing lead vocals as well as close harmony backing vocals.
We also perform as:
Seven-Piece (including Trombone)
Seven-Piece (including Male Vocalist)
Eight-Piece (including Trombone and Keys)
Eight-Piece (including Male Vocalist)
Three-Piece (acoustic roaming band)
Four-Piece (acoustic roaming band)
Our three-piece roaming acoustic band line-ups consist of Tenor Sax, Acoustic Guitar and Percussion, and an Acoustic Bass will be added should you require a four-piece band. These are great for smaller gigs where you would like the music to walk around.
Just pop us an email to let us know what band size and style you would like.
Do you have PAT certificates and Public Liability Insurance?
All the equipment is PAT tested and the band has £10million Public Liability Insurance.
