What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will always try my best to be flexible to ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. Please inform me as soon as possible and I will be happy to oblige.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely! As a solo artist, I can provide a full pa with backingbtracks, saxophone and/or vocals. If you would like a live DJ, I can also supply one for you. Price would depend on hours required.
How much time do you need to set up?
To set up my own pa and quickly sound check, I would like to do this at least an hour before the event starts. If you are using your own DJ and DJ equipment, I can be ready in a matter of minutes, as long as the DJ is able to accommodate my microphone,
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
I usually play anything at any given time from my playlist but I am happy for you to choose specific songs. In addition, if you would like me to play any song that is not on my playlist, I will be happy to learn it for you at no additional cost.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
If using my own pa, all I would need from you is a power supply!
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If you would like me to play any song or songs that are not on my playlist, I will be happy to learn them for you at no additional cost, providing you give me sufficient notice.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
My clients live the fact that I am familiar with many genres, especially the ones that most other sax players do not play (eg: soul, RnB, reggae, Afrobeat). I have strong improvisational skills and I can play along with a DJ without knowing the song already. I also offer vocals as an added bonus!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
The Jazz Cafe in Camden, London; The Hootananny in Brixton, London; The Royal Albert Hall, London (as a teacher/musical director); Addington Palace, Croydon
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I have performed at various high profile venues as a saxophonist, singer, bandleader and educator, including the Royal Albert Hall, the Jazz Cafe in Camden and live on national news (performing in Wembley it’s a School based samba band at the 2012 Olympic bid).
