Customer questions

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

That's fine, if the date has changed completely then please let me know at least 1 or 2 weeks in advance just so I can plan ahead as I am very flexible. If you solely change the time, please let me know 1/2 days beforehand as I may need to rearrange the structure of the day if it is in the afternoon or evening or if I'm travelling.

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

I'm not a DJ, however I do have playlists full of party songs that can easily be connected to my amp via bluetooth to create that atmosphere if needed. If you require me to stay for up to an hour after the venue closes for the use of my time playing phone music, then I charge an additional £50, but between sets is free.

How much time do you need to set up?

30 minutes to 1 hour. Depending on the venue and the event time allowance provided per artist.

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Absolutely, as long as it has the correct inputs and channels needed for my computer to sync up with my sound software and it works then I'm happy to do so.

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

Of course, If you'd like a 20 minute zoom consultation this is included in the booking price so I'm more than happy to discuss your setlist requirements in further details regarding your event.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes, I will always bring my own keyboard and have the correct equipment needed.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Absolutely, if you wished to have a 20 zoom consultation with me regarding your song preferences to discuss in further detail then this is including in the booking fee.

This fee will also cover the cost of fuel. (Ignore what it says about not covering fuel - that's a default setting.) Blessings, I look forward to hearing from you :)

Reviews

From customers:

Creative (

We know Beth as a regular freelance creative and production manager for creative projects she has been involved in with us. She is also someone who has performed for events we hosted for our art collective via Zoom during lockdown. It was very impressive to see how Beth managed the technical challenges of zoom as a performer and still delivered an excellent performance each time. Beth is a very talented and gracious artist whose voice delighted and charmed us many times when we had the honour of having her perform for us. Her technical abilities in production and musical creativity is immense and we look forward to hosting her as soon as we can because her performances always add a different dimension to our gatherings. We highly recommend Beth to anyone who is considering hiring her for their event. She is a delightful person to hear and have around. Sy Matthews, CVA Director

Benslow M

We have been delighted to work with Beth on many various projects online and in person. Beth has such a wonderful personality that shines and comes over in her music. Beth is a fantastic singer and can light up any room. During Lockdown Beth assisted us with an online project of “Keeping Music Alive” so we could reach out to people. We insisted that Beth was the finale every time as our members enjoyed her performance so much and even brought a tear or two. Our members really appreciated Beth and her outstanding performance at such a difficult time. Beth comes highly recommended. Joanne Flavell Benslow Music
