What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I understand that timings can change and I am able to be flexible about this within a reasonable amount of time.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
This does not apply to the type of service I provide. Breaks are short and fill in music is not required. I do offer the use of a mic for speeches or readings.
How much time do you need to set up?
I always arrive at least 1 hour prior to the start to allow time to set up before guests arrive. It's important for me to locate the best possible position to sit and I liase closely with event staff to achieve this.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes you can. You can also ask for specific styles such as just classical or spanish or a mix.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes all equipment is provided. I use my own amplification with a radio mic to my guitar. This offers far greater flexibility with the set up position and prevents trailing cables.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes. I have arranged countless pieces at the request of clients. I just need a reasonable amount of time to do this. There is no charge for this. Songs arranged include Isn't She Lovely, Bring Me Sunshine, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Lovely Day, The Wonder Of You, We've Only Just Begun......
What do your clients love most about your performances?
The fact that clients can relax and leave everything in my hands. They like my unruffled friendly approach and my ability to play music that suits the mood at any particular part of the occasion.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Blakelands Country House,. The Midland Institute, Edgbaston Golf Club, Cannon Hill Park, The Town Hall Halifax, Moseley Old Hall, Patshull Park, Pendrell Hall, Hundred House Hotel, Oak Farm Hotel, Hilton Hall, The Moat House, Brocton Hall, Mercure Birmingham, Fairlawns Hotel, Ramada Park Hall, Moor Hall Hotel, Burlington Hotel, Casltle Brom, Bolton Castle.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
John Williams. Brian May.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Recital for the Treasury Music Society in London. On a completely different occasion I had the pleasure of playing at a wedding with Ken Dodd as a family guest We chatted afterwards and he was exceedingly complimentary and down to earth. He spoke eloquently during the reception and was of course brilliantly entertaining.
