What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will always do my best to be flexible and to work with you at every stage of your event.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
This isn't a service i offer.
How much time do you need to set up?
For Gathering Of Drums it takes 1.5 hours to set up. If it can be done offstage then it will only take 15 - 20 minutes to get it into place on stage.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I'm definitely happy for you to choose which instruments you would like more focus on than others. For example you may prefer a more gentle chimes based atmosphere, a more powerful drumming one or as i usually play - a balance of the two.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes i bring all the instruments.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I am very much open to working with you for any specific percussion pieces you would like playing.
