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?

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.
