What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Not a problem!! I will adapt to what you want. Things happen on the day e.g. train delays to a memorial service this year, and it wasn't a problem.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Again not a problem. I have bass bins that come with the PA and give the sound excellent depth for any ipad playlists you may want to play. You choose what songs you want to dance to once I have finished or am having a break. It's there if you want it!
How much time do you need to set up?
15-20 mins if on my own. Is a fairly easy set up. Usually I know where I am playing beforehand and have contacted the venue to make sure everything is ok with unloading and access to the room etc
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Of course you can. And you can let me know of any requests you may have. I also provide songsheets for guests to sing from if they are not sure of the words! (if singing is part of the event:)
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes and can play acoustically moving around the room. The accordion is good for that as is the bagpipes!
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes not a problem! If it's too difficult, I'll soon let you know! But not normally the case:)
