FAQ

WHAT DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE FOR YOU TO PERFORM?

We're low maintenance, promise! We will need access to the mains power supply, unless using portable amplification for pop up gig. We'll need and parking, load in access at pre agreed times. If possible a small green room space is great and we always appreciate being included in catering plans.

HOW LONG DO YOU NEED TO SET UP?

We need at least an hour as a duo and an hour and a half for a band set up, including sound check time. Once we know your event timings we can work out and agree the best times to set up in advance.

WHAT EQUIPMENT IS INCLUDED?

We will provide everything we need to perform, as well as stage lighting. We normally gig with Bose PA, which takes up less room than traditional systems and we also have completely portable amplification for gigs without any power at all, and a larger scale PA for bigger venues. Please bear in mind we generally do not allow use of our equipment by anyone other than band members.

DO YOU DJ?

We'll be honest, we are musicians not record scratching MC's, but you knew that already. We provide the right playlists at the right time though, whether that's some chilled background music between sets, or the late night 'after party' session, we've got you covered.

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?

Our fees will vary based on line up and location, but our duo starts from £400, our acoustic band from £800 and our electric band from £1000 per gig. We add very reasonable travel costs from Basingstoke, Hampshire. Booking directly with us avoids agency fees on top, and we can often apply discounts for weekday and last minute bookings.

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN YOUR FEE?

We include up to 2 hours of live music in 2-3 sets for either a daytime (10-4) OR evening (6pm-12am) booking. We can add more live sets or add extra time per hour. If you've booked us for the evening, we'll halve our daytime fees for you, and be your personal house band and DJ's for the whole day! Which is perfect for weddings where you may need a combination of acoustic, electric and DJ sets.

ARE YOU INSURED?

Our Musicians Union membership includes extensive Gear and Personal Liability, we can provide certificates on request. We can also provide our latest PAT Testing certificate for our equipment as needed.

CAN WE SEE YOU LIVE?

Of course, we'd love to see you at a gig! Most of our performances are at private events, but we post any public dates on our Facebook page, and you can email us at info@themiacats.com for more on the next gigs. If you aren't able to make it in person, do check out our online videos, these are all recorded live.
