What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try to be a flexible as possible in order to assist your event to run as smoothly as possible.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes, I can provide mp3 music upon request during any intervals. If you would like mp3 music to be played after a performance up to one hour then there is an additional charge of £120.
How much time do you need to set up?
This depends on the occasion. A simple compact set up for wedding ceremonies, funerals and indoor house-parties takes about 15-20 minutes. A small stage setup can take 45-60 minutes. Please allow a large 1.2k PA system to take up to two hours.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
It will depend on my repertoire at any given time. Maintaining a huge rota of pieces is like spinning plates. I'll do my best though given enough advance notice and preperation time.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I am happy to field genre type requests and special ceremony songs, but it will depend on the song-choice and amount of notice given. My repertoire is wide-ranging meaning that past requests have usually been granted.
