The cliché saying for us musicians is "Music is my life, it's in my soul." It couldn’t be anymore true in my case. I can’t really tell you how I found my passion for music, often I think that it found me. I won't write a long paragraph to try to sell myself, nor will I try to impress you with all the things i've done musically... However, what I will say is if you've gotten this far, why not pop me a message? I’d be absolutely honoured to make your event a special one.

Customer questions

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

The Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham. — A truly unique experience where I was performing, and because of a sudden power outage I had no sound for a few minutes while 2,500 people were staring at me. Luckily I remembered where I left off! A close call to disaster if you ask me. Haha!

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

Not to worry! I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event goes swimmingly. If you have any concerns just pop me a message.

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

Yes! I have some great playlists to keep the energy going. Unfortunately I’m not a DJ though, so no requests please. Sorry!

How much time do you need to set up?

On average setup time takes anywhere between 20-45 minutes. However, I always arrive an hour early.

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

Mostly… My set list is designed to have a healthy balance between Guitar and Ukulele. If there’s anything particular that takes your fancy just let me know. There’s also an add on option for me to learn a song of your choosing.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Absolutely! All I need from you is a plug socket or 2.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Of course! Please check the Add On section for more details.

I didn’t want your average joe and when stumbling across Dana’s singing I had to book her…Its safe to say I was absolutely gobsmacked at what I heard on the day.The wife and I were taken back. You made our day one to remember forever…!See you again Dana. Jon
