Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

My line up is solo acoustic violin, amplified violin with backing tracks, electric violin with backing tracks. You can have a mixture of all for your event, or whichever suits your event best.

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

I always try my best to be flexible to help insure your event runs as smoothly as possible. I ask to receive as much notice as possible if timings do change once I have been booked for your event.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually arrive 45 minutes prior to my playing time and will need 30 minutes to set up my PA and sound check. If not using PA, I just need 5 minutes to set up my violin .

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

My set list is put together with what works best to ensure guests enjoy the background music. However, I am very happy to discuss if you would like certain pieces from my repertoire.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I provide absolutely everything! Only thing I will need is a plug socket nearby.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If you would like to request a song which isn't part of my set list, I will happy do this, particularly for wedding ceremonies, as I understand that you want a song that is special to you for that part of the wedding day.

Jennifer was amazing! Her music was so lovely and really helped polish off the setting! She played for our wedding and then the reception drinks and everyone was commenting on how lovely she was and how great her playing was! Would definitely recommend Jennifer to anyone who wants a beautiful violinist!

Jen was fantastic. She played some beautiful music at our ceremony at Marylebone Town Hall. Great communications before the day on song choices. Everybody at the ceremony was impressed the music. Thanks Jen.

Have seen Tom on numerous occasions and cannot recommend him highly enough. He has a wonderful stage presence and always makes time for everyone who comes to see him. 5 stars just don’t do him or his band justice. Simply amazing. 5 Stars

“When I first saw Tom, he was booked as the Teenage Crooner and I was so amazed at his talent and style and how he appealed to all age groups, I immediately booked him for a private function. Neither I nor my guests were disappointed and as the years have gone on he has got better and better becoming a staunch professional and not just as a 'crooner' but as an entertainer. I have been to several of his gigs and can only say that as his voice has got stronger, his repertoire larger, it gets harder and harder to book seats which shows just how high his popularity is and deservedly so as well. I would have no problem with recommending Tom to any of my friends or indeed to anybody in the leisure industry who is looking for a talented and professional singer to entertain their customers.”
