What if my timings change after I've booked you?
That's completely fine. So long as I have notice, I can change my arrangements to make sure the event runs as smoothly as possible.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Of course, a lot of people ask for this service. Just let me know if it is something you're interested in.
How much time do you need to set up?
It usually takes me between 30-45 minutes to set up. If I'm set up early I can provide a free playlist service to create the right atmosphere pre show.
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?
Of course, I like to work with every booker to create the best playlist for their event! I have hundreds of songs in my setlist, but I am always happy to add special requests!
Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Of course, providing I get a week's notice then I will be able to learn your requests with no trouble at all!
What do your clients love most about your performances?
My clients love the jazz spin I put on piano covers. In my standard set you can expect to hear everything from Taylor Swift, to Nirvana jazzed up in a fun modern style. It's a real talking point for guests, and gets everyone involved, particularly when I take requests!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Queens Hotel Portsmouth St Mary's Stadium Old Thorns Country Club and Hotel Victorious Festival Goodwood Revival Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire Marriot Hotel Portsmouth Town Hall Hotel Shoreditch Norfolk Hotel Arundel Knepp Castle Estate Horsham Harrow School and many more...
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
As a piano player I love the music of Scott Bradlee - his work with Post Modern Jukebox has been hugely inspiring for me.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
When I was younger I was in an originals band. We toured the UK quite often, however the most high profile gig we did was a tour of Germany and France. Personally as a soloist I have played at Premier League Stadiums, and have played at VIP private parties, however I can't disclose their name publicly !
