Customer questions

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

I 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.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.

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?

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I am 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, for an event up to 100 people.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The character that comes out during a performance, that "mysterious and sizzling woman with the big voice" as quoted from a client!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Hotel de Paris at Monte-Carlo Monaco, Faust Bar - Theater in Athens, Rethymno Days Jazz Festival, 4 Seasons Bar, Praxis Bar ,P_public festival, Skala Bar (Palaiochora) Thalassa Cafebar (Palaiochora) SAVVY Bar Restaurant (Agia Marina) Raquiri Bar (Gerani) Garten Bar (Kalyviani) and numerous others for weddings and private parties!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love Liza Minelli to the bone, Marylin Monroe, Rita Hayworth and so many other divas of the golden era!

Definitely Hotel de Paris at Monaco.

I have been following Iris from the very beginning of her career as I was also living in Chania. Her performances are unique in the sense that she cares about every little detail while at the same time she is able to embody a plethora of characters. Visually pleasing, and well structured, her performances are memorable and it has always been a pleasure to watch. In Iris I have seen dedication to what she does and a constant urge for surmounting her own limits to evolve both in personal and artistic level.

We wanted to throw a different graduation party so we thought we should get someone who knows how to put on a show in all the right ways! I have been following Iris's work for some years now and it was a real pleasure to finally work with her in that way. Very professional and bubbly, quite a character on and off stage!!
