A Guide to
Booking an Evening with Best Kept Secret
Thank you for considering
Best Kept Secret. Below is some information to help you decide
if we are the right band for your event, function or venue.
If there is anything any thing else you need to know please
contact James using the information below.
We are a four-piece band using mainly acoustic instruments.
All four members play instruments and sing vocals..
As a four-piece band using just acoustic instruments we do not
need as much space as some other bands and we can fit into some
pretty small spaces.
As you can see from our sample set list
Best Kept Secret is not a rock, blues, soul or indeed any particular
type of band. We try and do a bit of everything. Because we
are mainly an acoustic band our set includes quite a few ballads

If necessary we will
visit the venue and look at the space so that we can determine
the best set-up for your event. This will allow us to bring
the correct equipment including the correct PA size and lighting
to make your function or event as pleasurable as possible.
Us Live Or Listen To The demo
Of course the best way to get an idea of what we do is to come
and see us live. That is by far the best way to get a feel for
what we do and then we can also meet and talk about what you
require. Should that not be possible, we can send you our demonstration
CD which some sample songs. These are studio recorded songs
but played exactly how they would be on stage.
Us For A Chat
Finally, please give us a call to discuss what you need. We
will be delighted to discuss your requirements and see if we
can accomodate them.
