Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have performed at some incredible venues across the world, such as the Roundhouse, The Royal Festival Hall. I have also performed at Glastonbury Festival, and festivals across Europe and Canada.
Do you have different line-up options?
Yes! I also run string quartet Vesper, so can always add other string players if you'd like. Or DJs, singers etc etc pending their availability. Just get in touch and we can discuss.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try to be flexible as possible to help ensure your event runs smoothly, so if timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.
How much time do you need to set up?
I like to arrive 60 minutes prior to starting playing so that it's all up and ready in advance, but setup should take around 20 minutes.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Absolutely! For ceremonies I recommend you choose whatever you like, even if I don't have it in my repertoire. For reception, evening, DJ, dinner sets etc, most people request a couple of songs and describe the vibe/genre they'd like, and I tailor the sets around these.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
I can provide PA for up to 300 guests (for dinner/ receptions etc) and all the equipment that I need. For shows, DJ live sets at clubs etc, it's often best to use the venue or client's PA, so in that case let's discuss.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes, I will learn a first dance, or ceremony pieces, or a couple of special requests, as long as I have these a couple of weeks in advance to learn.
