Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

You can choose to book from: Solo Electric Violin with backing tracks or Electric Violin and Electric Cello Bollywood Duo with backing tracks

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

I will 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. I can also be flexible on the day, should you require me to stay for longer than originally planned.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as my PA is set up, I can provide a free playlist service if required, to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for my live performance.

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

My set lists comprise many popular songs that guests recognise and love. I understand that you may have particular songs that are special to you, that you want to hear performed at your event. I will always welcome your suggestions and am happy to discuss your desired songs. I offer one complimentary song and requests are charged at £10 / song thereafter.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I bring my own violin / electric violin to play. I also provide my own backing tracks, and can provide a speaker if necessary. I also provide my own Bollywood attire - which i will match to your theme. For stilt walking violin bookings, i own an array of stunning stilt gowns that you can choose from.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If there is a special song you'd like me to learn, I am happy to do this for you, and I can offer you your first song request free of charge! There is a fee of £10 per song thereafter, to take into account rehearsal times etc.

I had a problem with a violinist yesterday. A day before a planned proposal! But a massive thanks to encore for working hard to get me a replacement. Thanks to Helena for stepping and making our day extra special. My fiance was overwhelmed with the surprises all morning. The fantastic performance at Kyoto Gardens by Helena topped it all off. I'm looking at the pictures now - just amazing! Thank you.
