Customer questions

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have had the pleasure at performing at many of the most notable venues in the country including the Royal Albert Hall, Ronnie Scott's, The Roundhouse, Pizza Express Jazz Club and Theatre Royale Drury Lane. For five months, I was also a resident on the famed Queen Mary 2 Ocean Liner.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I have many musicians I look up to, way too many to name here! But I will list a few: Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Lester Young, Chris Potter, Roy Hargrove. All of these people are excellent at interpreting songs, no matter the genre.

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

I was fortunate enough to be selected as a saxophonist with the legendary soul band The O'Jays! It was lots of fun and I'm looking forward to joining them again on their next European tour. I have also appeared live on the Channel 4 show The Last Leg on 2 occasions, including the Christmas Special 2019.

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

I will always try to be flexible to make sure your event runs without a hitch! Just contact me as soon as you know of any changes :)

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

I have several playlists created for this very purpose! No problem at all to leave things playing in between sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

I will usually arrive at least 30 minutes before performance time, unless I'm playing music through my PA earlier. I can be fully set up in less than 10 minutes!

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

If you contact me in advance, normally I can make room for any songs you want. Depending on the event I can learn songs not listed for a small extra charge.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Of course! I have two different sized PA systems to suit the individual event, and a clip on wireless microphone to amplify my saxophone if necessary. For most situations, the acoustic sax is more than loud enough.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If given enough time (at least 4 weeks ahead of the venue) I will learn up to 2 songs for you free of charge. If you would specifically like a song that's not on my list, it's always worth asking as it's likely I'll know it!

Booked for one of our clients for NYE and Dom only played for only 20 minutes out of 2 hours.

Hi Amy, I had agreed to play 4×25 minute sets between 7 and 10pm and so I played the following: 7-7:30 7:50-8:15 8:50-9 I was asked to stop playing at 9pm by one of the managers, (part way during my third set) as they weren't enjoying the upbeat house music in the sit down restaurant. I was more than happy to change repertoire at all points in the evening, and was disappointed by the manner in which I was told to stop. As you can see from my other reviews, I take my work very seriously and will always work with the client to suit their needs but wasn't given this opportunity. I am more than happy to discuss this further with you.

Hi Dom, just wanted to thank you for your performance on Friday. The jazz you started with was perfect, and we were all up and dancing by the end of the night! Richard loved the surprise!
