... and many more!
I am happy to learn new songs, just drop a request.
*these songs form part of the set for a line-up involving other musicians
Do you have different line-up options?
I do! These include... - Solo Cello - Backing Tracks - Loop Pedal - Cello and Violin - Cello and Piano - Cello and Guitar - Cello and Vocals - Full band (Cello, Violin, Guitar and Vocals)
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
As long as we keep in communication, then it should all run smoothly! I will do my best to fit to your needs, so just let me know.
How much time do you need to set up?
Depending on the particulars of the performance, I will need between 1 and 1.5 hours! After my PA is set up I can act as a DJ until my set if you would like!
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I am more than happy to discuss the set list, so as to make sure that you are pleased with the choices.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
For acoustic performances, I will of course bring my own instrument. In some cases, it would be useful to know if there is a speaker system at the venue, so as to amplify my instrument for either the Loop Pedal Line-Up, or other instruments for the Line-UPS involving other musicians.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I would be happy to cater to whatever pieces you would like, as long as I believe I can do a good job. Because of the rehearsal time needed, there would be a fee or £30 for any new song you would like, unless of course I already know it!
Note: prices may vary based on travel distance. For an exact quote, click “Check availability”.
|Short performance (up to 15 min)||£75|
|Up to 1 hour||£175|
|Up to 2 hours||£260|
|Up to 3 hours||£350|
This higher price goes towards the higher level of equipment and rehearsal that is involved in crafting a set for Loop Pedal. This will be a creative, exciting set that involves just a cello, creating an orchestra of sound and allows for a very varied set list! It is a more interactive set than a standard cello performance.
This cost covers the introduction of another musician (piano, violin, vocals or guitar) to the usual acoustic sound. It will mean for a higher quality performance, and will give more flexibility for song choice.
Wedding ceremony + Drinks reception + Dinner
- Music before the service begins, music during the signing of the register, and music as guests leave. - 2 x 45 min performances at the drinks reception. - 2 x 45 min performances as dinner is being served. *This can involve up to 3 other musicians, depending on the client's wishes.
