What do your clients love most about your performances?
My clients love it when I move around while playing, and sometimes join in with the dancing on the dance floor.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Royal Albert Hall, London Carnegie Hall, New York Tramshed, Cardiff Depot, Cardiff St Audries Estate, Taunton Eynsham Hall, Taunton Kingscote Barn, Tetbury The Angel Hotel, Cardiff National Museum of Wales, Cardiff The Celtic Manor Resort, Newport Mercure Holland House Hotel and Spa, Cardiff Grand Pavillion, Porthcawl The Bootlegger, Cardiff
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
So many! In terms of my pop sax gigs, then Michael Brecker or David Sandborn have been massive influence on my style. Jazz-wize it's got to be John Coltrane and Charlie Parker. But, to be honest, it all goes back to Bach, doesn't it!
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Probably either the Royal Albert Hall in London, or Carnegie Hall in New York! Amazing to be a small part of those venues vast history!
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I am a flexible person, and will always do my best to accommodate your needs.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely - I have several pre-made playlists, perfect for any occasion or atmosphere!
How much time do you need to set up?
This depends on the gig! If I'm playing acoustically, there is minimum set-up - just 10 minutes or so to warm up before playing. If I'm playing Ibiza style electro sax with a DJ, I need 45 mins to set up the PA and radio mic and liaise with the DJ, if appropriate.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
The set list is a guide. Please let me know your favourites, and I will do my best to include these.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, I do.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Always happy to learn new songs!
