What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I'm usually very flexible and more than happy to change start/finish times where possible. On occasion I may have an existing booking before or after your event, in which case it is more difficult to fit in time changes.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Usually not, but please get in touch about what you specifically need.
How much time do you need to set up?
I arrive 1hr prior to performance time.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
You can pick any tunes you like from my set list.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes I am fully acoustic!
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If I know it, I'll play it! The set list you see on encore is not exhaustive of all the tunes in my repertoire, just the most popular ones people like to hear. Get in touch and I may already know the piece you want. You can also request 1 tune of your choice if you have given at least 7days notice.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
I play a wide selection of popular tunes that everyone loves to hear, as well as tunes that no one expects to hear on the Steel Pan. I am always on time and ready to start when you need. I am professional and know how to conduct myself at different types of events.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Weddings: - Fulham Palace - Kew Gardens - Warwick Castle Hotels: - London Hilton (various) - Royal Lancaster - Four Seasons Film and Television: - BBC Eastenders Children In Need - ITV This Morning / Good Morning Britain - Netflix - The Crown Clubs: - Tropicana Beach Club - Neverland - Floripa As well as many private clubs, house parties, golf clubs etc.
