Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

People love that Jon can go from singing a beautiful, perfectly performed ballad, to getting the crowd up and dancing with some energetic classics.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The Dorchester, Watford Football Stadium, St Georges Park, Hampton Court, Chiswick House.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Ed Sheeran, Michael Buble, Van Morrison, Ray Charles, Elton John, Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder.

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

Warner Bros

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

This is usually no problem, as long as type of performance doesn't change, or the new time conflicts with another event. For eg. if your welcome drinks are now a hour later, this is usually no problem.

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

Yes

How much time do you need to set up?

45 minutes

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes

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

If my clients would like to pick songs from my repertoire, I usually advise that they pick a selection, and then give me some flexibilty on the night. This means that I have the freedom to 'play to the crowd'. This is especially important with piano and vocals, as some of my repertoire may be slower/faster versions of the original.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes I have a Roland FP-90

Can you learn song requests before the event?

I can learn up to two songs for free, and then anything after this is charged on a case by case basis. Three weeks is advised for perfecting a new song.

Jon was great. Good comms before the event, including a call to go through all of the arrangements on the day. Jon arrived on time and set up where he knew it would be best. His performance was amazing! He has a great voice, and really brings his own twist to songs. Highly recommend Jon!

Jon was absolutely incredible, great voice, great pianist and thoroughly nice guy. Can’t recommend him highly enough. We hired him for an engagement garden party as some background music but everyone was up singing and dancing with him, he made a great atmosphere. Thanks Jon

Jon played at our wedding and was fantastic from start to finish. He has a huge repertoire and when we gave a list of a few of our favourite songs (and songs we really didn’t want to hear) he built a fab playlist around our choices! The song we chose for our first dance was not on his repertoire but he learnt it and it was a wonderful performance on the night. Our venue was small, so didn’t want a huge band but we did want atmosphere and Jon delivered that in heaps. Everyone was up and dancing, and the music wasn’t so loud that any conversation was impossible! We were so happy we chose Jon for our wedding reception, he is super talented and made our night so special!

Jon performed at our wedding in December 2019, he was so responsive from the outset and every song he played was absolutely amazing. He played the song we walked down the aisle to and we will never forget it. I can’t recommend him highly enough. Thank you for making our day truly memorable!
