What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I can normally be flexible, just give me as much notice as possible.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
More than happy to play tunes between sets, just let me know in advance.
How much time do you need to set up?
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
For unplugged gigs, I can provide everything. For plugged in gigs, I have microphones, stands, and mixer, but would require a PA.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Yes, for a negotiable extra fee
