Customer questions

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

I will accommodate any timing changes as much as possible. Having played at many weddings over the years, I am well aware that timings can slip through the day.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. You can also play your Spotify playlists if you like.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as my PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for the live music.

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

Our 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.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely - all I need is a space to perform and a power socket!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Where possible, I will learn any special requests if they will translate to guitar and voice. There is a charge for this as it obviously takes quite a bit of extra time.
