What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try our 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 you require a longer booking then an adjusted quote can be discussed if necessary.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes, no problem at all, as long as it has a mini jack connection socket.
How much time do you need to set up?
Comfortably 45 mins (depending on how easily accessible the venue is).
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
If there are certain must have songs or genres you would like in particular then of course, please do let me know. A lot of the time I will also gage crown reaction, so having every single song set in stone may not always work but I will of course endevour to include suggested songs to make your night truly special.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, all I need is access to plus points.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If enough notice is given then I will endeavour to learn your song for you. This does depend on if I can find the appropriate backing track, in the correct key etc and if I feel I can really do the song justice.
