Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run-up to the event just let us know.”

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Not a DJ service but music from a Spotify playlist. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via your PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £150

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 15 to 30 minutes before the performance time. As soon as your PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!”

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

I am definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically or plugged (wireless microphone) in your/venue PA system.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, I can.
