Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The mix of genres, I try and put something in there to suit everyone! And I always try to adapt to the crowd, I'll try and keep people up and dancing as long as possible!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed in many different venues, from the top of Arthurs Seat in Edinburgh for a proposal, to Festivals, Stadiums and sporting grounds, and the pubs, clubs, hotels & homes in between!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I have a wide music taste, I'm a massive 50's 60's Rock n Roll fan, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, but that goes right through to modern artists such as George Ezra and Tom O'dell

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

I'll always try to be as flexible as possible, just let me know as soon as you do and I'm sure we can sort something out!

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

Yes of course, I can either supply a playlist to play through my PA or you can plug yours in. If you'd like to continue a playlist service after my final set, this can be arranged for an additional fee.

How much time do you need to set up?

I can usually set up in 30 to 45 minutes.

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

Yes of course! I'm happy for you to choose the songs I play from the list.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I'll bring everything with me.

Yes that's fine. I can learn one song for you free of charge, any additional songs can be learnt at a £20 fee, this is just to take into account rehearsal times etc.

Booked Leon for our wedding this weekend. He is an amazing performer and went down very well with our guests. He was also 100% professional and dealt with a few minor setbacks (storm ciara) like a trooper. Would recommend for any celebrations x

We had Leon at our wedding performing as guests were arriving, when Aimee walked down the aisle and a set at the reception. Leon was fantastic! We could not be happier with his professionalism, talent and general persona. Our guests have been raving about him since and we want to thank him so much for adding to our special day. We would recommend Leon to anyone. Great voice!
