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.
