Customer questions

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

If I receive enough notice of the change of timings and it doesn’t clash with other commitments I will certainly accommodate the changes.

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

No

How much time do you need to set up?

I need about 1 hour since a lot of large venues require the drums to have microphones attached. The drums need to be sound checked with the band for correct volume levels.

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

Yes

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes For a large venue I will bring drum microphones, mixer and amplification with speakers.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes I do need about a weeks notice to concentrate on various songs before a rehearsal to ensure I am able to perform to a desired standard.
