Customer questions

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

I am flexible to my clients needs as long as I'm given prior knowledge of a time change for an event. I just politely ask that all timings are confirmed 2 weeks prior to the event so I can plan accordingly.

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

I always provide a music playlist via my PA prior to my performance (half hour) & during the interval (half hour) at no extra cost. If you require music following my sets or for longer than the period stated above; this will be at an extra cost of £50

How much time do you need to set up?

In some instances it can take me just 30 minutes to set up, however preparation is key and therefore I like to arrive at the venue at least an hour before guests arrive so I can meet the host, setup and soundcheck. I feel this also give the host a last opportunity to ask any questions and it gives us both clarity and peace of mind.

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm 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?

Certainly! I'm always well prepared!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times price of purchasing the track etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My ability to entertain first and foremost! My attention to detail, my punctuality and ability to engage my audience; leaving them with a lasting fond memory of the event.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Highlights include; Manorbier Castle in Wales for a private wedding function, Thanet Indoor Bowls Club, Hidden Rooms Cocktail Lounge in Cambridge, The Savoy and The Dorchester Hotel and The Wollaston Inn (The Nag's Head) as it was famously known as. I believe the above that I can adapt my act and repertoire to suit any venue and occasion.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Frank Sinatra & Neil Diamond

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

The Savoy Hotel & The Dorchester Hotel in London as part of Society of Stars gig where I performed as a tribute to my idol 'Frank Sinatra'.

Josh performed at our festival The Music Barn in June 2018. A great performance by this talented young man. A great voice and song writing ability. I’m sure he will go far!
