Any requests welcome, just get in touch!
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I can do my best to accommodate any schedule changes where possible if you get in touch with me at the earliest convenience. Please understand my work commitments may not be able to be changed.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
I'm afraid not, this will have to be provided by yourselves if you would like this.
How much time do you need to set up?
If playing a keyboard part for a show, I usually require up to 30 minutes prior to the event to set up equipment. This may be shorter in practice, I only allow this long in case of technical or logistical errors. I always test my equipment before travelling to shows.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
If anything from my set lists takes your fancy, please feel free to get in touch and request them specifically.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
If playing a keyboard part in a show, I possess all equipment necessary to perform to the highest standard. If playing a piano, it would be preferable to play one already existing at a venue. If this is not possible however, I am able to bring my own keyboard equipment to play on.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Absolutely! If you have any requests at all I can certainly do my best to work it into my repertoire for your event.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
I have been praised for my excellent sight-reading and adaptability to direction change. I have strong sense of pulse which helps playing as part of an ensemble.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have performed in many theatres, both small and large. The majority of my concerts have taken place in churches, again ranging from village churches to large cathedrals.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
The largest theatre I have performed in was the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre. The largest church was Wells Cathedral.
