This is just a small selection of the many pieces, tunes and songs that I have in my repertoire: please enquire if you would like to know if I can play/can learn a particular piece or song.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will always try to be flexible with timings as far as possible, to help your event run smoothly. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event, please let me know as soon as you can.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
I am not able to offer this at present but hope to be able to in the future.
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually like to set up about 1 hour before the performance time, to give me plenty of time to make sure everything is ready.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
The set list on my profile is just a small selection of the many pieces and songs I know and can play for you. Once you let me know your requirements, including any particular pieces you would like me to play, I can send you a sample set list for the performance for your approval.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes. I can perform acoustically on any of my instruments, for a smaller or quieter venue. I am classically trained so am able to project my sound into a space very well. I also have some basic sound equipment (amp, microphones etc.) that I can use to make my solo sound louder for a larger or more noisy venue.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I am a quick learner and happy to learn a piece or two for your event, given a reasonable amount of time to do so. If you let me know what you would like me to learn, I can confirm with you whether this is possible or not.
