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 us know as soon as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a popular request and I can offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, I can provide this for an additional £50.

How much time do you need to set up?

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

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

I am happy for you to compile a set list of the songs you would like me to perform. Alternatively I can select my most popular songs from my current list of reportoire.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. I have my own 80w busking amp that can run off it's own rechargeable battery all evening. I can also provide an additional wireless microphone for you to use before my performance. If the stage needs lighting I can also bring my battery operated studio lighting kit.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If your special song isn't included in my song list, don't worry! There is still a good chance I already know it. If not, I can learn it especially for you at no extra charge.

Reviews

From customers:

Ben C

Damien is a very talented musician and great to work with. He's easy going and knows what he wants when it comes to playing and the musical aspects of things.

Hannah J

Damien made our night - everyone commented on how much they enjoyed his sets and what a thoroughly nice guy he was, even staying over his agreed time as he continued to take more requests. Could not have been more pleased. "Better than Ed" was the comment of the night I think!! Highly recommend this musician if you want to add something extra to a special occasion.
