Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of events do you perform at?

Anything that requires live music!  For over a decade we have played at corporate events, product launch parties, music festivals, Christmas light switch-on events, balls, weddings, birthday parties...

What equipment will you bring?

As well as our instruments, we supply our own high-quality sound system.  Our largest setup can be used in venues with a capacity of up to 500 guests!  We also bring lighting and a smoke machine (venue permitting) to create a special atmosphere for your event.  

Can we help to write the set lists?

Over the past eleven years Flipside have carefully fine tuned what they do.  Many of our songs are rarely played straight start to finish and are often arranged in medleys, which makes it difficult to rearrange the order of them or to add or remove songs. You can trust the experience of Flipside to create set lists and to read the crowd to make changes as the set progresses. 

 

Do you provide a disco?

To maintain the party atmosphere all night, we play music through our PA system, free of charge.  If you want to personalise the music with specific songs then we are happy for you to provide music on an mp3 player/iPod/laptop.  We can also recommend DJs that we work with if you’d like to be able to make requests.

 

What do you wear?

We typically will wear the kind of clothes you see in our videos; however we have been known to wear dinner jackets and bow ties or even join in with fancy dress or other themes... just let us know!
