Customer questions

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

We are flexible to your needs at all times. Just give us as much notice as possible if timings change so we can get organised.

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

Yes we can play music through our pa between sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

I can usually set up my pa equipment etc in about 30 minutes . It speeds things up if I can park close to the venue although I do have a modern lightweight, high quality and powerful Bose pa system which can be carried with more ease than the old fashioned huge pa speaker systems.

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

Yes that' s fine, I can give you a list of what I do and you can chose what you like best.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I bring all the equipment that I need to perform and only use the highest quality professional gear which I have invested in to give you the best possible sound quality.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I always sing and play with emotion and passion I'm never just going through the motions. Music means the world to me and I love it so much and put my heart and soul into it every time. I think people can see that I am for real and my years of consistent experience help me to sound high class.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I am based around Pembrokeshire so have mainly played in the South Wales area in most of the hotels , pubs, clubs and music venues ranging from the Queens Hall Narberth to small country pubs.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I was inspired to first learn to play guitar by folky acoustic type music such as Suzanne Vega and Tracey Chapman. I have quite a wide musical taste and love most things except heavy metal. I'm more into easy listening songwriters like Damien rice and some of the early 70's songwriters like James Taylor and Carole King. I also love Americana music.

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

I was a singer in a soul band a few years back and we were the support band to The Drifters on one occasion and The Four Tops on another occasion. As a singer/songwriter I played with my 3 piece acoustic band on Radio Wales for their live county show broadcast I also played guitar for Owen Money on that while he sang an Elvis song....ha ha
