What do your clients love most about your performances?
A frequent compliment I am always proud of receiving from MDs, other players, and clients is that I bring a positive energy and passion to all of my work. No booking is ever "just another gig" to me and I will always comprehensively prepare whenever possible so I know the music back to front and can focus instead on giving the best possible performance.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have headlined several O2 Academy venues with a previous band as well as large festivals such as Teddy Rocks. In pit work I have played a variety of theatres in London and Oxford usually 150-500 capacity including the beautiful and historic Chipping Norton Theatre.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
This is absolutely fine and I'm more than happy to rearrange if given reasonable time to plan and providing there is no clash with any of my other bookings!
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes absolutely! The only things I will need provided are the music (ideally in advance as a PDF file or I can come and meet you to pick up charts/books), power, and usually a personal mixer is provided on pit orchestra gigs but this varies depending on the size of the production.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes, I always prefer to learn and put in the time to practice pieces ahead of a gig instead of sight-reading. I will always make myself available to pick up music early if possible but I am also very comfortable sight-reading for electric bass for last minute bookings however music involving bowed double bass will need some time before a gig to prepare.
