Customer questions

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

It is no problem at all if timings of the Event change, I will always adapt to the revised timings.

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

Yes, I will always put background music on in between sets, and provide a DJ if required.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually require about one and a half hours to set up, one hour minimum.

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

Yes, most definitely. I can also provide other songs if required, as I have a very large repertoire of vintage songs spanning six decades of vintage music.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely. I bring all my own equipment, and will also bring my ukulele which I can play acoustically, walking around from table to table (and guest to guest) if required.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

It depends what the piece is, but I will always try to cater for requests. I am always flexible and adaptable!

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I am an expert in my field of vintage music, and all the genres of vintage music from the First War, 1920s/30s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. I have made a detailed study of the various singing styles, and my act is always called 'authentic' and 'very professional'. I am also lively and entertaining in my style of singing, but can equally sing background music.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The London Palladium Most recently, I have sung at a major Corporate Event for Marks and Spencer PLC, which was staged at the Jury Hotel, Milton Keynes. This was a 1920s Event. Vintage Events include: Goodwood Revival, National Trust, Twinwood Festival, Imperial War Museum, and many London venues including Selfridges and Skylon Restaurant and Savoy Hotel.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I like all vintage singers and vintage bands, including Glen Miller and Vera Lynn.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

The London Palladium.
