Please ask about 70s/80s/PARTY MUSIC etc as I have a good selection in my repertoire also.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try my 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 PA after the final set until the venue closes, I can provide this for an additional £100.
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually set up about 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as the 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, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event. I'm very flexible when it comes to finding just the right show for you.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, absolutely! All I need is a plug socket.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a song isn't included in my song lists there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn, I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times and cost of the backing track etc. ”
What do your clients love most about your performances?
My personality and my sense of humour. I try to make my shows as entertaining as possible, so there is usually a fair bit of banter and the odd corny joke.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Pickering Wartime Weekend British Grand Prix Shuttleworth Flying Proms Churchill Theatre - Bromley The Royal International Air Tattoo Great Central Railway Cromford Steam Rally Orchard Theatre - Dartford Stradsett Vintage Rally Nottingham County Show Seaton Tramway Sywell Aerodrome Becks Theatre - Hayes Rushden Transport Museum & Railway Croft Racing Circuit
