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 let us know.”

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


How much time do you need to set up?

“I usually set up about 15-30 minutes before the performance time. As soon as my PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for my live performance!”

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 am definitely happy to chat through and make sure I 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 specific pieces before the event?

"Providing it works for Steel Pan, I am more than happy learn it".
