Customer questions

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

Will be flexible to the customer's needs where possible.

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

I can play a requested playlist via my PA between sets. Happy to put a playlist together or play customer's device through the PA.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients love the versatility I bring to my cabaret-style performances. One minute I am singing to moving ballad then the next a fun, comedy song then an up-tempo pop song.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed in many West End Theatres and on stages around the world.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love the music of Stephen Sondheim and I am a big fan of Elton John.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Sam Mendes' production of "Oliver!" at the London Palladium playing Mister Bumble.

I booked Musicality to come and sing at my Christmas drinks party and it was amazing! Ian and Janet have incredible singing voices and they sang songs both familiar and new to us. It was like having our own West End show. Thank you!

Musicality performed for my customers at Munnings tea rooms during the Lavenham Christmas Fair 2018. I was very impressed by the quality of their singing voices and the wide repertoire of songs they perform from musical theatre, films and more.
