The 88s



What areas do you cover?

We typically cover Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes. However, we enjoy gigging so much we're willing to travel further, although this would need to cover our travel expenses.

Can you provide lighting and PA?

Yep, we have our own PA and mixer. We also have some lighting if required. We've even got a flux capacitor...

What do we need to provide for the band?

As we're a 4-piece, we need enough space for the drumkit, PA speakers, 3 amps, 2 microphones and pedals. If you're unsure, send us in a photo of the performance space for us to evaluate. We're used to setting up in small spaces - we're a tight-knit band!

We also require at least 3 power sockets (we have extension leads).

It would also be much appreciated if you can also provide at least 2 allocated parking spaces for the band. It makes our lives easier for loading / unloading our gear.

We also need at least an hour to setup.

How long can you play for?

A typical gig is usually 3-hours (between 9pm and midnight) with a short interval between 2 sets. That's around 35 songs! Not many bands play that long which makes us great value for money.

We are very flexible on timings though and can cater for whatever you need.

Will you play any requests?

With plenty of notice we can play any of the songs from our song-list.  

We're also happy to learn a song which isn't in our repertoire, such as a 'first dance' request for a wedding, or a favourite song for the birthday girl/boy or guest of honour. We will need plenty of notice if you require us to learn a new song though, to ensure that we can get it  to our usual standard of excellence in time!

Can you play at our charity fundraiser?

Sure! We'll even do it for free.

So long as the set is at least an hour that's fine. The only payment we require will be of the food and drink variety.
