Customer questions

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

I understand a lot of events can vary in their timings, I'm happy with up to 30minutes of a change but any more than that I'd charge a £10 fee per hour.

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

Yeah, I can provide a ipod service for inbetween sets and possibly after if that is what you'd require. I'm happy to do it for free between sets and after sets it is £100 an hour.

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually takes me around 30 minutes to load in a set up all of my equipment.

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

Yeah no problem and I'd be happy to learn tracks for your event too.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yeah I've got all I need and my sound system is fully insured and PAT tested.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yeah that is no problem, I'm happy to do this.

Amazing !! Gave the perfect vibe to our wedding day, everyone made a point of commenting how brilliant Liam was. He set the scene beautifully for the ceremony and then did an lovely set for the drinks reception, created the perfect sunny afternoon chilled atmosphere what we were wanting! I sent over a couple of requests which I wanted signing and he promptly got back with short demos for us to hear, which was fabulous. His Instagram shows more variety of songs he sings. And from start to finish he was brilliant and so friendly. Can not recommend him enough. Thank you Liam for making our day so perfect.

Liam was amazing, I would absolutely recommend booking him. He is lovely as well as really good, and even when there was a delay at our wedding, he stated and played for us. Even some of our guests booked him as they were so impressed. Thanks Liam!

I stumbled upon Liam’s when searching for a guitarist to perform at my mum and dads surprise anniversary party. At first I was hesitant about booking a musician as I was worried about it being only a small event and I only wanted backing music. I emailed Liam with my concerns and he put me at ease instantly,he was quick to respond, patient with my ongoing list of questions and he even sent a list of his upcoming events so me and my sister could go check out his performance before booking! After seeing him perform I was massively impressed and instantly put down the deposit! Liam took the time to learn a requested song which was my mum and dads wedding song and performed it beautifully as they came Into the room!! I can’t recommend Liam enough and throughout the event I had numerous amounts of people, including the director of the venue, asking for Liam’s details and complimenting his performance! Thank you again for helping to make the event so perfect !
