Customer questions

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

Events can be stressful for organisers, right?! To help, I'll try and accomodate changes in timing wherever possible. Drop me a message as soon as you know!

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

Absolutely. You can link up a bluetooth device to my speaker if you have your own playlist, or I can create one for an additional £50.

How much time do you need to set up?

About 30 minutes.

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

I use my years of experience to pick what I think the crowd will respond best to on the night. If you have any specific requests though, I'm happy to discuss it.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. Please advise me in advance if I'll be playing outside without access to power, just so I make sure the battery is fully charged! But I'm able to be entirely self contained.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If you have specific song requests to learn, I'm happy to do so for
