What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Timings are completely at your discretion. I’m totally flexible and will change spot times and lengths to suit your needs. If you need me there earlier or later just let me know in advance.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes. Background music is included for no additional charge before and after spots. Dj service can be provided for an extra fee, this varies depending on your needs but is always cheaper than hiring a separate Dj.
How much time do you need to set up?
It takes roughly 20mins to set up once inside the venue. Whereupon background music can be played immediately to help create the right atmosphere and set the tone.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Of course! I have curated my sets and honed them over literally thousands of performances through the years but am more than happy to take multiple requests to personalise your experience.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes. I bring all necessary equipment with me except for lighting which is usually available in the venues. On rare occasions when you require me to provide lighting I can hire it in for an additional charge.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Possibly! I will always endeavour to learn a special song that I don’t already play if you require. There are certain exceptions due to technical difficulties but I will discuss this with you.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
I’m very at ease on stage, people say I make it look easy and are taken with my musicianship and versatility.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Too many to list!!!
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Again this is a difficult question to answer as I have many acts that I like but I try not to emulate others and do things with my own style.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I often play in front of 300 plus people but the real question should be; how often do you play? I do 4 gigs a week every week and I’m ALWAYS rebooked. I think this says more about my qualities than any one off gigs I might have done in the past.
