Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Confidence, crowd inclusion & interaction. I'll actively encourage (those that want to) to come and sing a song of choice at your special event (I'll of course support them all the way.) I create a relaxed, tailored, appropriate environment.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Hurlingam club - Wimbledon Paradise room - Mainstage - Blackpool Pleasure Beach Lakeside centre (home of the darts) Silverstone

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Buddy Holly Johnny Cash Elvis Presley

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

1/ Corporate entertainment for the ski club of Great Britain with celebrity guests 2/ Main stage cabaret act - Blackpool Pleasure Beach (c/o Rollercoaster club of Great Britain) 3/ Wedding Entertainment (numerous) most recently, Chateau de bezyl - France.

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 me know.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our my after the final set until the venue closes, I provide this for an additional £50.00.

How much time do you need to set up?

Although I only take a maximum of 30 mins to set up, I usually arrive about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as my PA is set up, I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for the live performance!

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm 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. Guitar, Mics, Lights, iPad, PA - everything. If necessary, I'll carry out all liaisons with the venue regarding PAT certs & insurance etc. ** However if you require a piano service (although I have a very high quality Keyboard,) I'd always suggest making sure the venue has a piano and that it's in tune.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn ( 3 are included,) I'm happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £20 for each additional song after the to take into account rehearsal times etc. Naturally, "Happy Birthday" is included for free if necessary ;0)
