FAQs regarding what to expect from the band.

We require an area at least 5m wide by 3m deep. A bigger area than this is better as it allows us to configure the lights up more effectively.

For larger events, we also require an area approximately 2m square for the sound mixer and equipment/lighting control desk and the engineer. This needs to be within 30m of the stage.

Mrs Miggins' Pie Shoppe will usually perform two 45-60 minute sets with a 10-15 minute break, however, we are flexible and this can be altered to suit your exact requirements. 

We can also play recorded music between sets or provide a connection so you can play your own choice of music.

We usually take around two hours to set up for a show, this includes around 15 minutes for a sound check.

Mrs Miggins' Pie Shoppe perform in black shirts with red ties and black trousers.

We are flexible about the length of the break, usually 10 - 20 minutes is plenty.
We can play background music during the break if desired.

For your party event, we will endeavour to learn one new song if there is sufficient time before the event and if it can be played with the instruments we use.


Seriously, no this is not a requirement but if you insist on feeding and watering the band they will not resist.

We have public liability cover for up to £1 million.
