Jimmy played our ceremony music at our wedding, and it was absolutely perfect. Having our favourite songs played so wonderfully really made the ceremony even more special, so much so that we tried to slow each other down as we walked up the aisle to hear our exit song fully! Jimmy was so helpful with any queries we had, and we would highly recommend having him play at your wedding. Thank you again, Jimmy, it was magical!

We had the best time. We were overwhelmed with just how professional, courteous and smooth you made everything. The venue commented that you were one of the best acts they've worked with in terms of comms and your conduct on the day. The photographer loved you and thought you were amazing. You provided a sophisticated and high quality performance throughout the afternoon, engaging with our family and friends with requests, while sticking to our brief and styling. The atmosphere you created was relaxed and exactly what we needed on a busy day. Genuinely, I cannot thank you enough. You made us so happy. Thanks again, Owen

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My clients love the communication beforehand, how I can offer advice from extensive experience and of course the performance on the day. Reading the room and matching the vibe perfectly.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I've played all over the UK and Europe

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I'm influenced by many artists, old and new. Have a listen to the media on my profile and you should be able to hear some of them.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I've played for celebs, actors and musicians but every event gets the same high levels of service and enthusiasm!

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

I'm always flexible and will work with you and your venue to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible. I'll liaise directly with the venue in the run up to the big day and will be available throughout the planning process.

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

Yes, absolutely. Although during a ceremony, drinks reception or wedding breakfast it isn't often needed as I will play straight through.

How much time do you need to set up?

It takes around 30 minutes to set up, but I'll be there with plenty of time to ensure there aren't any delays.

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

Absolutely. You're welcome to pick songs from my list or make requests or we can chat through the vibe you're going for. It's all tailored to you!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, all I need is a power supply.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, it's all part of the service. I'm happy to learn your special requests.
