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

All my bookings include a bespoke DJ playlist service throughout the event, tailored with all your song requests. Live DJ sets are also available at a special price.

How much time do you need to set up?

I offer flexible setup solutions for all types of events and in discussion with the client, venue & event planner will ensure my setup time meets the event timings & specifications.

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

You can select ALL your songs, and even select some songs which aren’t on my list. I love learning new songs, and ensuring your show is fully-tailored and unique to your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Indeed I do. Indeed. Remember, artists can only sound as good as the amplification they’re playing through. That's why I use PAT tested high-end amplification, as well as party, stage & mood lighting (where necessary) with a dedicated engineer, to ensure everything looks & sounds just right all throughout your event.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes. Learning new songs keeps me quick on my feet and keeps my repertoire fresh. This will normally be free of charge. * In case you have an exceptional request (i.e song in a different language or a large number of songs especially prepared) I may have to charge a bit extra.

Lilac spent a good deal of time on the phone with me understanding my thoughts and requirements and hit the nail on the head - quite rightly pointing out that some of my live song requests don't really translate from synthesized 80s to acoustic - though there were some great interpretations in the set. Lilac performed exceptionally well - even trying out a loop pedal for the first time in anger which went down VERY well indeed with everyone... it's fantastic to see - to actually watch - how a complete song is built up with layers of different music sounds and vocals. Remco was on hand all evening, setting up the kit and controlling the sound outputs, seemingly effortlessly through an iPAD app, which looked more like it should be controlling the starship enterprise than a set of music equipment! Rem was extremely accommodating, setting kit up in line with the space - including placing lights and speakers outside which meant we could really enjoy the good weather while we ate from the BBQ. Lilac performed some absolutely cracking songs interspersed with my own playlist which I'd created on Spotify.... which I simply shared with Remco via a text link - after which my music magically appeared on the professional sound system! Brilliant! A great night was had - with people remarking "where did you find her" and "the music was fab - just made the party". I would love to have an excuse to hear Lilac again and would recommend without hesitation. Thank you for a great performance!

Dear Ceilidh With Us, we wanted to thank YOU all for a wonderful evening on Saturday! It really was a great evening - as I'm sure you realised from so many smiling faces and so many people who enjoyed the opportunity to dance. The caller sized us up very quickly and put together a great programme of dances to appeal to the more and less experienced dancers - We so appreciated your musicianship and the blend of instruments. Remko - your sound and light system created a great atmosphere, I genuinely think people would have danced all night, given half the chance! Many people have already said what fun they had and how much they enjoyed the evening. These are sobering times so thank you so much for helping us create a relaxed and cheerful atmosphere where we could celebrate birthdays and friendship. Lilac, you were so helpful from our very first conversation and made sure everything ran so smoothly. I feel sure we'll find another opportunity to book you all again. With our best wishes and grateful thanks, Deborah and Sandy

Dear Lilac & Remko, I just wanted to send a thank you to you and the band for the 2 August performance. Everyone really enjoyed the music and commented on how the country band was excellent. I appreciate your learning the songs I sent over- I think you did a brilliant job. You also did a great mix of music that went really well together, we really enjoyed dancing to it. My husband said he thought you and your band made the weekend, you were his favorite and that is saying a lot considering we had 4 performances that weekend. I hope all of you enjoyed yourselves and the BBQ food. I will definitely keep you in mind for any future events or recommendations. Many thanks and wishing you the best, Vanessa
