  • How does the disco work?

    Our disco runs from an Ipod/Ipad, and we have multiple play lists available.


    We have software that reduces gaps in-between songs to keep the whole evening flowing. We take great care in our free disco, and like to make sure that its updated regularly with all the best hits.


    As an optional extra we can also arrange to upload songs for you if you have very specific requests. Find Out More About The Disco. (Coming Soon).

    The Dukes Of Havoc wear Black trousers, White shirts, smart Black shoes and Black Skinny ties, at all events. (Unless other dress codes are required).

  • Can you work with sound limiters?

    The band can play as loudly or quietly as you like! The Dukes Of Havoc have played at many functions of different sizes, and can tailor the volume to the size of the venue and number of people.


    The Dukes are used to working with sound limiters, so if your chosen venue happens to have one, it's no problem, as our experienced band is used to working with them regularly.

  • How long do you play for?

    We offer a choice of either 2 x 1 hour live sets, or 3 x 40 minutes. Additional live sets can also be added as an optional extra. Find Out More.
