A Taste of Honey
After You've Gone.
Ain't she sweet.
Alexander’s ragtime band.
All of me.
All the things you are.
Almost like being in love.
Always on my mind.
Bye bye blackbird.
Bye, bye blues.
Can’t help falling in love.
Cheek to Cheek
Cherry pink and apple blossom white.
Come fly with me
Days of wine and roses.
Fly me to the moon.
For all we know.
Georgia on my mind
Girl From Ipanema.
He ain't heavy, he's my brother. Honesty
I can't give you anything but love.
If you knew Susie.
It’s only a paper moon.
Just the way you are.
Knock 3 times.
Moonlight in Vermont.
Music, music, music.
My heart will go on.
My old man.
On the street where you live.
Pennies from heaven.
Raindrops keep falling on my head.
Saving all my love for you.
She's always a woman.
Slow boat to China.
Smoke gets in your eyes.
Stella by starlight.
Strangers in the night.
The Lonely Bull
The shadow of your smile.
The sheik of Araby.
The sun has got his hat on.
The way we were.
This guy's in love with you.
Try a little tenderness.
Under the boardwalk.
What a wonderful world.
When I'm Cleaning Windows.
When I fall in love.

Yes, sir, that's my baby.
You are my sunshine.

Special requests can often be accommodated, within the limitations of the genre and instrumentation.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
As long as you let me know as soon as you can, I'll do my utmost to accommodate your revised schedule. Normally this isn't a problem.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
If required, this can be arranged with prior notice.
How much time do you need to set up?
Depending on the engagement this can vary. If I'm playing a voluntary for a church sevice, I like to arrive 45 minutes before the start time to get in and set up before the arrival of guests. If its for a drinks reception, or wedding breakfast, I normally allow at least an hour before the start time to set up and be ready to play at the agreed time.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
As long as the piece you require is part of my repertoire, then no problem. .
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
I bring everything that I require for the performance.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If I have to learn a specific piece for the event, this can normally be done as long as plenty of notice is given, and it's the genre of music suitable for the instrument. If this involves rehearsals (with an organist, for example) this will incur an additional fee.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
I'm often complimented on my sound, and the fact that I understand how to control the volume of the performance to enhance, rather than dominate the event. Clients always enjoy the variety of music during the performance
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Many and varied, but including all of the London Airport Hotels, Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Fairfield Halls, Battersea town Hall, Thorndike Theatre and many exclusive garden parties and weddings.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
The list is endless, but Clifford Brown, Wes Montgomery, Stan Getz, Lee Morgan, Chris Botti quickly come to mind
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I'm not usually one to name drop, but I've played for my fair share of well known people over the years.
