Saw her standing there
Sex on fire
Shake a tail feather
Somethings got me started
Stand by me

Sweat, a la la la la long

Sweet Home Alababma
Sweet home Chicago
Twist and shout
Unchain my heart

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 us know
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely, I will happily provide music for the breaks free of charge.
How much time do you need to set up?
Roughly 20 minutes, could be longer if the access is difficult.
If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?
Yes, of course - as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, then I'm happy to play on it!
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
I have years (and years) of experience in knowing which songs work to get a crowd going so probably best to leave that in my hands :) But of course I will play any requests you have. I bring requests slips and pens along. PS I have a huge repertoire of over 2000 songs.
Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?
I bring a piano keyboard (included in the price). I also have a portable white baby grand piano the can be hired for events for an additional £200.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If I don't already know the song then I am happy to learn a special song for you at no additional cost. If you want any additional songs learnt then it would be £30 per song to take into account rehearsal times etc.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
My Charisma, energy and voice.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Hundreds! From Neckar Island for Richard Branson to Milton Keynes Arena, Festivals, pubs, clubs, weddings, birthdays.... America, Norway, Holland, Portugal, France and of course the UK!
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, David Coverdale, Dire Straits, Bruno Mars..
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Probably for Richard Branson and his family and friends on his Private Island in the Caribbean.
