Customer questions

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

That is absolutely fine as long as I can as much notice as possible, especially if I am traveling a long distance. I am also a flexible person so if timings change to an earlier time or later it won't be a problem I will still make sure the night goes according to plan.

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

I have a Spotify premium subscription so I am able to make playlists that can get played before, inbetween and at the end of my sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

For an acoustic gig, I am able to set my PA, guitar and microphone up in maximum 15 mins, if I take my time, if it is required that I set up quicker it's not a bother.

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

Of course, my set usually includes a few medleys, so if songs are requested they will be played.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes 100%

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song is not in my set list then don't hesitate to ask if I can play it and if I feel like I can play it/ Sing it then I have no problem playing it. My only rule is no requesting of football songs.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I believe they enjoy the overall party atmosphere that I try my best to create. I aim to have the pubs, clubs and venues all singing and dancing along and I also believe that if these places are up for it then they are guaranteed a fantastic night.
