Customer questions

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.

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 one hour to set up, at a stretch, half an hour.

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!
