Customer questions

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

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just keep me posted.”

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free.

How much time do you need to set up?

Setting up usually takes upto 30 minutes. As soon as the PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for the live performance!”

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests enjoy a true acoustic live performance. However, I am definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in the list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you. However the request should be made minimum one week prior to the event.

John performed at my birthday party on the 17th Aug and we all enjoyed his music. He is very flexible and we can jam with him as well. He covered most of my favourite songs and played a little extra time on our request for free. I personally recommend him to anyone looking for a singing guitarist for any function. Alwyn

I have enjoyed watching John perform onstage at Rebel Inn. He received a great response from the audience. His selection of songs were fantastic and we all wanted to see more of his performance. Simon
