Customer questions

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

We always try our 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. If they change drastically, try and give 7 days notice.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request. If you'd like a DJ service via my PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100. There is also a £100 cost for DJ service for the 1 hour before the sets. Between sets, there is a £50 fee for DJ service.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 0.5 to 1 hours before the performance time.

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event. All requests should be provided at least 7 days before the performance, and ideally 14 days before. Requested songs may be charged.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own PA system and mic etc.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

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

Lara compiled a bespoke set of ‘Disney’ songs for my teenage daughter’s birthday party and performed them brilliantly. She is a terrific singer with a really warm and friendly personality. She created a lovely atmosphere and was super professional in both her behaviour on the night and in the overall thought she put into the booking. We would definitely book Lara again!

Lara was a delight to hear perform - as soon she started to sing, everyone stopped and watched. She has a unique ability to adapt to any genre and put on a brilliant show, with everyone up and dancing! Highly Recommended
