Customer questions

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

If timings change slightly in the run up to the event, just let me know, i will be as flexible as possible!

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

Of course! If you just let me know before, and send me a set list then i can just put this on before and between my sets. I offer this for FREE!

How much time do you need to set up?

I will usually set up around 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance as i would need to sound check and make sure everything is ready. However, as soon as i am set up, i can turn on a playlist to set the atmosphere for your event to get the guests ready for my live performance.

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

Yes of course you can.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, i do.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included on my set list, then there is a possibility i might already know it so i can then add it for free. However, if there is a unique song that you would like me to learn, then i am more than happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal time etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

They love how i can create the right atmosphere tailored to their event. I am bubbly and outgoing therefore, i enjoy speaking to the guests and interacting with them, making sure any requests are fulfilled and that their day goes as smoothly as possible.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed at various venues such as Portsmouth Guildhall, Bonbar Newcastle, Stack Newcastle and The Alnwick Castle and Gardens.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I have been most influenced by artists such as Etta James, Sia, Alicia Keys, Jessie J, and Nina Simone.

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

I would say the most high profile gig would be 1000+ people at The Portsmouth Guildhall, while serving in The Royal Marines Band Service as a Vocalist or at The Royal Naval Headquarters in Portsea, Hampshire.
