A huge huge thank you to Craig who took total care of our wedding ceremony and played some really beautiful pieces of music. We also had his band at our evening reception and wow what a great team of lads, fantastic music, getting everyone up and dancing from the start. We didn't want the night to end!

Customer questions

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?

Yes I usually do this for free between my sets, and afterwards depending on length of time needed.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as my PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for the live performance!

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?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes, absolutely! I have my own electric piano which I use on most performances.

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 discuss this.
