What if my timings change after I've booked you?
No problem....as long as I can get my train home! ;-)
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
No. Not the sort of events that I do.
How much time do you need to set up?
I assume that you will have a PA with mikes for me and know how it works. I usually don't need more than 5-10 minutes to set up.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
After the years of performance, I'm pretty good at choosing what auduences enjoy. That said, if you know my repertoire and particularly want me to sing a particular song, fine. remember, I perform for listening audiences only. Cabaret. No background music or music to dance to.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
I only bring my guitar.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Rarely needed, but I can if required and it's the sort of song that I sing.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
It depends. Straight music gigs, it's the quality of my Jazz singing and solos. When it's more comedy, then the silliness of my comedy. ALWAYS music, though. I don't do stand-up.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, London Palladium, Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, The Apollo, New York....many more...to numerous to list.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Hmmm...Music...Probably Joao Gilberto, Peggy Lee, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Mel Tormé. Comedy? I don't know...Tom Lehrer maybe.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Touring as opening act for Paul McCartney - Roskilde and Midfyn Festivals (60,000 people) - entertaining the Queen - entertaining the Royal Family of Sweden...
