Customer questions

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

I always try by 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.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free if its during the timings originally discussed between set times. If you'd like a DJ service via my PA after the final set until the venue closes, I provide this for an additional £100 p/h.

How much time do you need to set up?

20 minutes

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

Yes of course from the list provided. If there are any special requests do let me know with ample time and I can see if it's possible.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I have my own PA that can work for many small - large venues, unless its a very large (200 guests +) venue where a sound engineer may be needed.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes with ample notice. This can be discussed prior to the booking date.

We are so pleased we booked Harry to sing at our dad's funeral service. He sang Ave Maria and Nessun Dorma beautifully and bought happy tears to our eyes as our dad always sang this at parties. Harry really helped us give our dad the send off he deserved!

Harry Sang for a very small 70th birthday celebration. He is a charming and very professional performer. He judged his audience perfectly and sang a delightful repertoire. I would not hesitate to recommend him for private functions and wish him well in furthering his career. 5 stars for satisfaction, professionalism, communication and punctuality.

Harry sang at the annual carol service for The Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund on the 4th December 2018. This is a major fundraising event for the charity, attracting approximately 850 guests to St Luke’s Church in Chelsea each year. His performance was widely acclaimed and part of a programme of music and readings, which included The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Prince Harry is patron of the charity and made the appeal on the night.”
