What can I expect from a Dirty Mavis gig?

We tailor our set lists and format to the occasion.
If we've got a slot at a festival, we'll usually hit it hard with a non stop compilation of feel-good dancable party songs. The fact we always seem to get people up on their feet with a smile on their face has led to us getting asked more and more to 'headline' local festivals or warm up the main act for larger events - which we love!

If we are at a 'function' or private party, we usuallyplay a first set of around 40 mins with a few slightly more laid back 'looseners' - well known classics to get you in the mood, and your feet tapping

After a break (usually when guest eat etc) we launch into a second set of energetic party songs - pretty much anything from the last five decades that we know will get you dancing! This is usually between an hour to and hour and half.
