Customer questions

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

Let me know as soon as possible so I can factor in travel and set up time. If timings change drastically there may be a chance of unavailability.

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

Unfortunately, I cannot lend my PA system for any other use than my own during an event. For breaks in between sets, I can offer some backing music to fill the silence.

How much time do you need to set up?

Set up takes up to an hour depending on the performance space for the PA system, to be warmed up and ready to play only takes 10 minutes or less.

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

Yes, If you don't specify what you would like I will create one and send it for you to check over.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. I bring a PA system for backing and amplification. You can request either soprano and/or alto saxophone if you prefer. If no preference I will play the sets solely on alto saxophone. Also, if you would like purely saxophone with no backing tracks this is also possible.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, if you would like some specific songs I will happily arrange them for you. There will be an extra fee of £20 for this service to take into account the extra rehearsal and sourcing of music.
