In most cases, the songs in Incahoots Repertoire can be performed either as just piano/vocal arrangements, or as more familiar ‘full’ versions depending on the mood you wish to create (i.e. Piano Bar/Lounge or Cabaret). In addition, specific songs of your choice can be requested and included as part of your event (for example, the ‘first dance’ at a wedding ceremony). We can also offer a DJ and Disco service if required (for a small additional cost).
