FAQ

This sounds amazing, how would one go about booking this band?

Simply address you correspondence to delamereleigh@gmail.com and we will get back to you with a quote.

We require a specific song for our wedding, can you accommodate our request?

Yes indeed, bespoke, to order.  We will attempt any material, and have in the past been asked to upcycle songs by Led Zeppelin, Flaming Lips, Dean Martin, Andy Williams, Black Flag, Billy Bragg and even a number from ‘Bugsy Malone’.  We include our own distinctive stylings and flourishes at no extra cost.

Where are you able to perform?

We are based in Falmouth, and so usually take bookings in Cornwall and Devon, however we do, on occasion, venture beyond the West Country – state your case in writing and we will provide a quote.

Can you perform outdoors?

Indeed we can.  We would recommend an acoustic performance – with various vocals, accordion, banjo  and percussion.  Ideal for woodlands and pastures.   (For a fully amplified performance, we would require some electricity and cover from the elements)

Can you play some music at my actual wedding ceremony?

Certainly.  We have plenty of experience of this, you will be in safe hands.  We will behave with appropriate decorum and provide the right music at the right time – whether it is ‘Air on the G string’ played on acoustic guitar, a piano led singalong of ‘I’m a believer’, or a wistful accordion tune from ‘Amelie’, we can soundtrack that special moment with style.

Can you entertain for our whole wedding day?

Yes, we will do a ‘wedding special’ deal in which we will lay on discrete background acoustic tunes during the day as necessary, followed by two full party sets later on.

How long are your sets?

A ‘standard’ booking would typically be 2 sets of around 50 minutes each, but we can provide a lot more if required – although as you will appreciate when you experience the high energy of our performance, we do ask for regular breaks to recuperate.

I’m not sure I want a full band, can you perform solo or as a duo?

Leigh Delamere will be happy to perform solo on piano (either with or without vocals) for a more intimate and quiet experience, or as a duo with Heston Frankley on the banjo for a more folksy atmosphere.

Are you in any way connected with or endorsed by the Motorway services of the same name?

No.  We have, whilst passing on our many travels, attempted to squeeze a free coffee out of them in return for our improvement of their brand, but to no avail.
