Who are Splendid Question?
Splendid Question are a pop-focused, five-piece function band based in Edinburgh, Scotland. The five of us each add our own unique signature twist to well-known songs that everyone can sing and dance along to, and we entertain audiences at parties, weddings, events, and as venue entertainment.
What songs do we play?
We play a range of songs, from the likes of dance classics, pop and fun - we do it all! If you are wanting specific songs played we are happy to add anything to our repertoire, just get in contact.
What is our lineup?
Our core group is female vocals, male vocals, keys, electric guitar, electric bass, and drums!
What makes us Splendid?
We don't just play the classics. You're as likely to hear us play modern top-40 tracks like "Juice" or "Just Got Paid" as you are "Valerie" or "500 Miles". We will tailor our setlist to the event.
We put our own spin on the tracks. We play real instruments (keys, guitar, bass, drums, voice x2) and we make modern music feel real. We add a splash of funk to everything, to make sure the dancefloor is always full.
We're self-sufficient. We can provide high-quality PA speakers and microphones, along with stage lighting, to really put on a high-quality show. When we've finished playing, we can also provide a DJ set for no extra charge. You can also use our PA system for your own music and speeches, saving you the hire fee.
We're young. We're all aged between 20-27 – we know what songs young people want to hear, and how to play them!
"Splendid Question came to our open day in May and they were absolutely brilliant! They brought fun, ambience and life to the whole event. We absolutely loved having them along and will certainly be asking them to come back time and again."
Jess, Marketing Manager, Bachilton Barn
How would an evening performance work at my event?
When performing at private events, we will generally perform 2x 45 minute sets with a 30 minute break in between.
2000 – Set 1 Starts
2045 – Break
2115 – Set 2 Starts
2200 – End
These timings and durations are totally flexible – we'll find something that fits you and your event.
What about soundcheck?
To ensure we give the best sounding performance possible, we require a 1hr soundcheck in the same venue prior to playing – this gives us a chance to setup our equipment and adjust our mix to the acoustics of the space. Once this is done, we're all set up, so when it's time for the band to start, there's no delay. And, in the meantime, you'll be able to use our PA system for your own music and speeches.
We are based in Edinburgh and Glasgow, and we can travel anywhere :-)
