Customer questions

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 hour before the performance time or 1.5 hours if we are providing lighting and stage backdrop. As soon as the PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance

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

The set list(s) will be drawn up to fit your particular event while taking account of what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. I'm definitely happy to chat through our suggested setlist and adapt it as necessary to reflect your preferences and make sure it will work for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes absolutely. I have a top-end twin-tower Bose PA system that will work well not only for small intimate venues but also for large venues up to around 300 guests, and this is included within my prices.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

f a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a song (or even a couple of songs) that you would like us to learn we are always happy to do this for you and there will generally be no charge for this as part of a full event.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients and audiences often say that I have a beautiful voice and an amazing range of songs across different genres and that I really get people up dancing and enjoying themselves.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed at many different venues of all sizes, from intimate concerts and private house parties, to full size weddings and corporate or charity events with several hundred guests. Examples include The Parsonage Hotel at Dunmore, the Carnegie Conference Centre in Dunfermline and the Malmaison Hotel in Dundee.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love a wide variety of music and artists across all eras and genres - country, rock, pop, jazz, swing, R&B, blues, folk. Some of my favourite artists include Adele, Patsy Cline, Shania Twain, KT Tunstall, Johnny Cash, Annie Lennox, Passenger, KC Musgraves, Elton John, The Beatles, The Carpenters, The Police, Lewis Capaldi, Ella Fitzgerald …..

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

I recently performed to several hundred guests at The Parsonage Hotel at Dunmore which is regularly voted as the most romantic wedding venue in Scotland.

We were fortunate to have the duo Debbie and Fernando playing at this venue one night. They are an acoustic duo with a great mix of their own cover arrangements of modern and classic songs and they were a real pleasure to listen to. I would definitely recommend them for anyone looking for an upbeat and engaging acoustic duo to hire for their own private event or public performance.

We've had Debbie perform for us twice now and I have to say, what a voice. Her musical range is superb and she gets everyone in the party mood, I will definitely be booking her again to perform for us. all of our customers have informed me that they have really enjoyed their night when Debbie sings. If anyone is thinking of hosting an event I would put Debbie as first on my list.
