Verified profile

You might have looked at a few singers by now and are wondering what sets me apart from the rest. Or perhaps you’re just window shopping with the idea of adding a performer to your event but you’re just not sure. If you're looking for someone who will impress your guests - look no further. I’ve been playing music for over 16 years. I’ve provided my services to countless weddings, christenings, black tie award ceremonies and birthday parties. My biggest gigs to date include performing to thousands at Warrington Stadium and being flown over to Belfast to perform for the Royal Air Force. My repertoire of 200+ songs has something to please everyone, from golden oldies right the way through to the here-and-now, the breadth of my set has been wowing audiences for years. My clients and audiences note my professionalism and customer service, but don’t take my word for it - check out my immaculate and extensive review history. Whether you’re looking for a chilled out afternoon affair with me in the background, or an eclectic upbeat evening of popular songs with everyone singing along and dancing, get in touch now - you won’t regret it.

Customer questions

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

I'll 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?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free!

How much time do you need to set up?

Depending on the nature of the event, I will arrive anywhere from one hour prior to the performance. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm 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 - the only thing I require is a power source.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you given there is enough time to learn it. There is a fee of £35 for this service.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My powerful voice and the ability to both play a chilled out set in the afternoon and a powerful upbeat set in the evening.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Weddings Wedding proposals Christenings Wakes Birthday parties Bar openings Private house and garden parties Award ceremonies Rugby stadium performances Countless pubs and bars

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

A mixture of rock/pop/folk/country
