What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will always try to be as flexible as possible, and if you give me enough notice it should be possible to adjust timings. The best option is usually to book a large enough time window to allow flexibility within this time, as needing to arrive earlier or leave later could cause scheduling problems or incur additional charges.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Unfortunately, this isn't a service I provide personally, but I can help you to someone or find an alternative solution.
How much time do you need to set up?
I need very little time to set up - 15 minutes if it's playing acoustically, or 30 minutes if there are microphones/PA etc.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I am always happy to discuss what I will perform with you, so that we can work out what will work best for your event.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, I can always bring my own instrument, music stand and other related accessories.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I can take specific requests before the event, however if it's something that isn't in my repertoire, there may be a small charge (around £30 per new piece) to cover the time of transcribing and learning the new song.
