What do your clients love most about your performances?
Clients love my easy going personality and can do spirit when preparing for their events. My ability to adapt to situations or plans adds to the professional approach I bring when working. All this as well as the quality of the performance means my clients are happy with my service, with repeat bookings for events like theatre shows and orchestral concerts.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
The main featured venues I have performed at are scattered around Europe. These venues include Brandenburg Cathedral, The National Czech museum of music, and L'église de la Madeleine in Paris. In the UK I have performed in Venues such as Symphony Hall, Birmingham, Cadogan Hall and the Royal Albert Hall, in London, and the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Throughout my career many influences come and go with the style of music I like to play and listen to changes. Leading influences include the likes of Richard Strauss, Frank Sinatra, and leading Trumpeters throughout time.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
In September 2021 I performed at the Goodwood Revival Ball. This Ball is a high end event with 2000 of the most well known names in motor sports and society coming together for a party. The likes of Jenson Button, Sir Chris Hoy, AJ and Curtis Pritchard, Jason Mamoa, Ollie Murs, And prince Michael of Kent to name some of this years attendees.
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 and I should be able to adjust to this with ease.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
I don't offer this option due to being a solo instrumentalist. The style and type of jobs I do mean that this is not a request I receive. I can certainly play to a backing track if requested.
How much time do you need to set up?
I intend to get to the venue at least 45 minutes prior to the time I am required to arrive by to set up, due to the easy set ups I have to do. If I am requested to arrive at a certain time that is also fine and I am more than able to accept your requests.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I aim to make my performances suitable for you and your event. This means I am more than up for your requests, whilst also being up for choosing and being in discussion with you over music to be played. On some occasions extra fees may be added for purchase of music if needed.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play. If its an instrument like the contrabassoon on the other hand I will contact you if you are able to acquire one, whilst looking around myself for borrowing one. This is due to the size of the instrument and their high purchase cost
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If you want specific pieces at your event I am more than happy and capable to learn these pieces at your request.
