Customer questions

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

I always try my best to be flexible and help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run to the event just let me know. I always check up just before the event I have all correct details and confirm final timings.

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

Yes, this is part of the package. Whenever I'm not playing I will always play recorded music through the PA (unless I'm relocating rooms at the time). If you wanted a laptop DJ set after I finish playing this can be added at extra cost.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually arrive 1.5hrs before I'm due to play to give me plenty of time to load in, finding out where I'm going and set up and be ready to play. If time is right I can usually load in and set up in under 1 hour.

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 great condition and in tune, I'm happy to play on it!

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

Yes, before the day I ask you to hand pick the songs you want in the repertoire from my full list of songs. If you have any requests that are not on my list I'm also happy to consider them at no extra cost.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes I have a white baby grand shell and matching digital piano and full PA system.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes! If a song isn't included in my repertoire list I'm happy to consider it and learn it for you at no extra cost if suitable. If you do have special requests please give me plenty of time to learn and arrange the songs for you. I usually would take on max 2-3 brand new songs for you.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I help create a magical atmosphere and add a special touch to your day or event.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed in wedding venues across the UK as well as bars, restaurants and hotels.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

There's too many to even begin to list them but to name a few: Norah Jones, Stevie Wonder, Adele, Ella Fitzgerald, The Beatles and many more!

Carolina sang at our wedding during reception drinks and the meal, she was absolutely fabulous, we told her what type of music we wanted and she created the playlist, which was perfect for the occasion. Everybody at the wedding commented on how brilliant she was, I can’t recommend her highly enough, she really helped make a perfect day
