FAQ

1. Why should I book the Rollin’ Clones?

The Rollin’ Clones were established in 1997 and have worked hard to earn their reputation as the most accurate and complete Rolling Stones tribute show, as well as the nation’s favourite!

They have performed across the world from the Azores to Oman. They have performed to royalty, been hired by the Director General of the BBC for his birthday, performed for the Morgan Motor Company’s centenary and, in 2013, were asked to headline the Cheltenham Gold Cup! These are just a select few of our prestigious shows.

This year’s other highlights were a national tour of the prestigious O2 Academies, an unprecedented 70-date tour of Butlins and performing to a 15,000 strong crowd, who sang every word, at Semana Do Mar in the Azores!

So why should you book the Rollin’ Clones? They have vast experience in making all events a huge success, whether it is with small private clients to huge multinational organisations. For ticketed events, we are unique in that we have an in-house, dedicated PR team, whose sole purpose is to ensure you maximise your event’s sales potential.

2. How long do the band perform for?

Clients can choose from a number of show formats. Our most popular formats are either two 45-minute sets with a short intermission or a single set of around 90 minutes. The band is happy to provide up to two hours of music for a single event.

3. How far is the band prepared to travel?

Any time, any place, anywhere.

The band performs around 120 dates a year on average so travel is part of our lifestyle, performing the length and breadth of Great Britain, Europe and the World.

4. Do the band have their own sound and lighting equipment?

Yes. The Rollin’ Clones can travel with their own 5,000 watt state of the art sound system and lighting. There is no need for you to hire any additional equipment as they can provide everything as a completely independent unit.

5. What time do the band arrive to set up?

The band’s crew ideally like to arrive by 4pm. This gives them ample time to set up, sound check and be out of the way for the guests’ arrival at the venue. An alternative set-up time is possible but the band would require sufficient notice prior to your event date for necessary arrangements to be made.

6. How long does it take the band to set up?

Typically it takes 2 hours to set up and sound check. If you are worried about time constraints then please contact us. Shorter installations times can be possible although some allowances may need to be made regarding equipment for the show

7. Does the band have insurance?

The band has £5,000,000 public liability insurance and electrical equipment is annually tested to conform to United Kingdom PAT test certifications. Method Statements, Risk Assessments and Health and Safety policy are all available on request. Prevention and a safe working method is the making of any professional working act.

8. Can we request songs and playlists?

The band will gladly tailor the song lists based on your requirements. Previous requests have been a 1960s based song set, or a set based on all the classics, or even a set based on what the band played in Texas in 1972!

Every effort will be made to suit your needs where there is no risk of compromising the integrity of the show.

9. On the night, what happens when the band aren’t performing?

There are a few options available for the intervals, before or after The Rollin’ Clones’ performance. Prior arrangement can be made for the provision of background or disco music throughout the evening. Let us know what music you would like to hear or alternatively, you may wish to arrange your own playlists on an iPod or mp3 player.

10. Can we come and see the band perform live?

Absolutely, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you. If you are coming to preview the band, please take into account the type of show and package that you will be viewing will have been designed around the specific requirements of that client.

11. Are there any hidden costs?

No, the fee your quoted is the fee you pay. All quotations made can be provided with contracting and full itemised invoicing.

12. How much space does the band require?

The Rollin’ Clones comes as a standard six piece and right up to eleven piece for the ‘bells and whistles’ show, which includes brass and backing singers. We can play, and have, on some small stages. If you have a particular venue/hall in mind, please contact us and we will work to deliver the best show for the venue.

13. What does the band require?

The Rollin’ Clones do not have an outrageous band rider or list of requirements.

Cold or hot food and a supply of soft drinks, tea/coffee and water, plus a secure room to change and leave personal are our only requirements.

Fresh-cut lilies and someone to peel our grapes is optional!
