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 pieces you play from the set list?

I'm more than happy for you to choose specific songs from the set list, however I often change the set list whilst I'm playing depending on the if there's something that you definitely want to hear just let me know!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I'll bring everything with me.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, if there's something you'd like to hear that's not on my list I may still know it anyway, but if not I'm happy to learn a song for you.

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!

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!

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

An absolute pleasure to deal with - Veery professional throughout the booking and on the day. Gauged the audience superbly and was exactly what we were looking for, would definitely look to book again next time I need a similar artist.

Leon played for our 40th birthday party. His communication was excellent before the event making the actual day completely stressless. Leon arrived on time and set up with no problems. The songs Leon played were perfect, just what we wanted. Leon was very professional and easy to communicate with before and on the day. All the guests enjoyed the music. Thank you Leon for entertaining our guests. I would highly recommend. Thanks Liz and Glyn

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!
