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?
Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via my PA after the final set until the venue closes, I can provide this for an additional £200.
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually arrive 1 hr before the event and set up ad do the sound check in 30 min.
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?
My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best for you and your guests. However, I am definitely happy to chat through and make sure I find what works for your event.
Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?
Yes, absolutely! I bring my own keyboard or for an elegant look, at only £100, I can also provide a White or a Black Portable Piano Shell, to look like a real piano.
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.
