Customer questions

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

I always try my best to be flexible. If timings change just let me know.

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

This would not be a problem at all. If you would like me to provide a DJ service after our final set I would be happy to do this for an additional fee.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up 1-2 hours before I am due to play.

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

This would not be a problem. I would work with you to curate the best set list for your event and with enough notice be able to learn certain requests.

Yes, I am able to provide PA and Lighting for your event.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

With enough notice I would be happy to learn certain requests.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I have had compliments on my song choices as i have picked songs for a mixed age group so there should be something for everyone.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have been lucky enough to play in many different venues both as a solo, duo and in a band. I have played a wedding in a barn on a haystack, an 18th birthday party on a boat and in many esteemed venues such as Mathern Place and Hestercombe house & gardens

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I have always loved all different types of music. Growing up in the 90s I was influenced by the divas.
