General

What type of places or events do you perform at?
Anywhere with an electric socket and the right kind of discerning audience! We typically perform at hotels, restaurants, weddings, and conferences, but we are open-minded about playing in unusual venues including homes.

Will you bring your own PA/piano/equipment?
Yes, we bring our own digital piano, PA (sound equipment), microphones, and cables. The PA is suitable for small to medium venues.

Do you need any equipment or anything else provided for you?
We just need access to two electrical sockets and a bit of floor space.

How large an area do you need to perform in?
Around 2-3 square metres.

Do you perform covers or originals?
Although we do write our own songs, The Morrells is a covers duo, performing songs that everyone will know.

Do you use backing tracks?
Never. Our performances are fully live with piano and vocals.

Can I book just a pianist?
Yes - please get in touch for a quote, which will depend on your requirements.

Can I book just a singer?
There are very few circumstances in which an "a capella" singer would be required, and Hollie does not use backing tracks. If you do require an a capella singer, for instance to perform a song during a wedding ceremony, please get in touch. The fee will depend on your requirements.

Can you provide extra musicians or a full band?
At the moment we can't provide this, but if enough people ask for it, then we may consider it as an option for the future.

How far do you travel?
We usually travel within Yorkshire, but can travel further within mainland UK if our expenses are covered, including accommodation if necessary. This is dependant on availability, as we both have other commitments.

Do you have any business cards or leaflets that I can give out?
Some establishments in the wedding industry like to give out business cards or leaflets of other local services that may be useful. We will be pleased to provide business cards or other materials for this.

Payment

How much do you charge?
Please see our Fees page for this information.

Do I need to pay a deposit?
If we are travelling outside of Yorkshire then yes, we would like a deposit. Otherwise, no deposit is required.

When is payment required?
Payment is required in full in the day of the performance. You can wait until the end of the performance if you like, to ensure that you are satisfied.
We are confident that you will be!

What payment methods are available?
At the moment we only accept cash, but we are looking into providing a PayPal option in the future.

Weddings

When during my wedding day will you perform?
We can perform during the ceremony, during the line-up, as the guests dine during the wedding breakfast, or in the evening before your main entertainment. It's up to you! We advise that you book a DJ or band in addition, as your guests will want to dance, and our cocktail music is not suitable for that.

What kind of songs do you play at weddings?
We can play any of our usual genres of pop, soul, and jazz - but we stick to happy songs that have the right type of lyrics and convey a feeling of celebration.

Can I request a special song, that isn't already on your list?
Yes, if you give us at least a month's notice.

If I book you for three hours, can I split up that three hours so you perform a bit in the morning and a bit in the afternoon?
Yes, if we're available then we don't mind hanging around a bit, but we don't like to stay for longer than 8 hours. Please let us know your requirements in advance, otherwise we might book another gig later in the day.

Will you dress smartly?
Always! Brian usually dresses in black trousers, a shirt, dinner jacket, and dickie bow. Hollie has a number of elegant frocks, none of which are white. If you have any specific dress requirements we will try our best to accommodate them.

For my evening do, can you provide a DJ as well?
We can't provide a DJ, but we might be able to give you contact details of a local DJ if that helps.
