What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will always try to accommodate you within reason. Please just let me know as soon as possible of any changes - they can usually be catered to.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
I can absolutely do this. I’m not a DJ per say but if you’d like me to control a playlist and take requests I’m happy to put together some music for you. Between sets is no extra charge, whereas after the final set will incur an additional fee dependent on time.
How much time do you need to set up?
I like to arrive 45 minutes early. Set up itself generally only takes 15 minutes.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
I have a large repertoire of music and cater to many different tastes. For some events I may only play pop music from the 2010s, while for others I might only play tunes from the 70s. I can work with you to get a solid idea of what you’d like, and/or put together a set that is bound to be perfect for your event based on past experience.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes. I specialise in events that require a simply, no-fuss setup. My PA is powerful but compact. For most events it is perfectly suitable. In the event that you’d like to hire me for an event that exceeds my system’s capabilities, I would require equipment to be arranged, but we can work together to make this happen. My equipment has not been an issue so far
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Special song requests can certainly be fulfilled if requested in advance - I may already know the song but if not I am happy to learn up to two songs free of charge.
