Customer questions

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

No problem at all, all I ask is for some notice and I can adapt the requested music accordingly!

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


How much time do you need to set up?

Around half an hour.

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


Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?


Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Of course, I'm happy to learn anything (within reason)..!

Chris is an excellent singer: he is attentive in rehearsal and expressive in performance and delivers his singing with conviction. He is great to work with, too, I have thoroughly enjoyed singing with him and directing him.

Chris sang for us at a family occasion with such beauty and feeling that it brought many of the audience to tears. He was totally professional, accommodating and reliable on the day. Well presented and a pleasure to meet. We would not hesitate to recommend him to sing at any occasion and look forward to hearing him again.
