Customer questions

Of course. Is it a very common request and I will be happy to play some music for you before / during / after the gig via my PA. If a Full Dj set is required (more than 20 minutes after the end of my set then a fee might be applied)

How much time do you need to set up?

I normally set up about 1 / 1.30h before the performance. setting up takes me less than 20 minutes and as soon as i am done i can play some background music for you.

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

I would be happy to personalise my playlist for you and play some of your favourite songs. Although We would need to arrange this in advance.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I normally play alongside Backing tracks only in case of a Duo i'd be coming together with my pianist/guitarist.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

sure

You filled the venue with an infectious charm, outstanding voice and captivating charisma which provided us with a truly engaging & fun evening, so much so that we're already on the lookout for your next gig. My Friends and I could not stop vibing and you even had us singing along at times. You both are great performers and kudos to your talented fellow musicians. Thank you for making our night. Alex

Anastasia and her Trio performed for us during my birthday party. They were great. We heard her in a venue in London (at the Luna in Leytonstone) and hired her for our private party. Great stage presence and charisma. Highly recommend.
