Jess was absolutely brilliant! She brought the perfect party vibes and energy. Her set list was spot on and was open to the requests that I had!

Wow. Jess is an amazing performer and has a truly amazing sound. Years of training I’m assuming and a vast repertoire. Will definitely book her again.

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

No worries! I try my best to flexible to ensure your event runs smoothly. Just keep in touch in the lead up to the event if anything changes.

Definitely - this is a really popular request! I can play a playlist of your choice through my PA system before or after my sets for an extra £100. I can do this for no extra charge between sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

I like to arrive with plenty of time to set up to make sure everything runs smoothly. This is usually 45 minute to an hour before the start of my first set.

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

Of course! You can pick your favourite songs from my song list and I will create a setlist to suit your tastes. For an extra £50 you can pick 3 extra songs that aren’t already in my repertoire.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I will bring everthing I need to perform.
