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?
yes I can do so.
How much time do you need to set up?
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
yes you can and I can provide printed lyrics for people to sing along.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
I can bring a small PA and can sing with a backing tape. When singing with a band we will bring a small PA suitable for medium size rooms. We found that in the past large events organise their own PA system so we do not provide a large PA.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I can learn specific songs if the time between the booking and the performance allows and provided I can find a suitable backing tape or rehearse the musicians when playing with a band.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Clients find my performances engaging and always remark that I have a lovely voice.
