What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I'll be as flexible as possible and I ma experienced enough to know that sometimes things don't run to time. If anything changes before the event, please let. me know and I'll do my best to accommodate you.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes, I am happy to provide recorded music for between sets. For a small price I will play recorded music for up to 1 hour after the live music has finished.
How much time do you need to set up?
1 hour is plenty of time and what I'd aim for, but 30 minutes is the absolute minimum time needed to set up an acoustic gig.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
I am happy for you to let me know if there's anything particular from my song list that you'd like to hear. Pop your selections in an email and I'll be happy to play them.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, I usually work on the basis that I'll provide my own PA and amplification for an event. If there's limited space or a possibility of equipment sharing with another musician or act please let me know.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If there's a particularly significant song you wish to hear at your event please let me know. There will be a small added charge for the extra time spent learning and rehearsing in time for your event.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
The quality of musicianship and setting the right mood and atmosphere.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Theatres, clubs, thousands of pubs, castles...
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
As a solo artist I have been influenced by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Allen Stone, B.B. King, Bill Withers, Nat King Cole, Sinatra...
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I once performed with 10cc on a Belgian radio show as a deputy vocalist. It was a pleasure to perform with great musicians and a band with such a rich back-catalogue.
