Customer questions

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

I always try my 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 me know.

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

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

How much time do you need to set up?

Depending on the venue I usually set up about 30 min to 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as the PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for the live performance!

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes, of course - as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, then I'm happy to play on it!

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests have an amazing time. However, I am definitely happy to chat through and make sure I find what works for your event.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes, absolutely! I can bring my own instrument to play acoustically.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
