Customer questions

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

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event, just let me know.

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

Yes! I can offer an iPod/DJ service in-between sets for free. If you need, I can also offer this service after the final set until the venue closes. This is an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

It would usually take me around 30 mins to set up my equipment and sound check. I can play music in the background whilst I do this.

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

Yes. You can pick any of the songs from my song list but if there are some that aren't there which you would like, just let me know and I can learn these for you.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I bring everything I need for your performance.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If there is a special song that you would like me to learn I am happy to do this for you.

Mark played at a private event that I had organised for my sister's recent engagement. He sang a good mix of songs which really added to the atmosphere of the day. Mark was very friendly and accommodating of our needs. I would not hesitate to book Mark again for another party. Thank you so much!

We were delighted by the performance that Mark gave at our wedding. He has such a wide repertoire of songs. He has an excellent vocal range and he is a lovely down to earth man who was very willing to adjust to our song choices and he sang them all brilliantly. Mark is a brilliant showman and natural performer and he had a good level of audience interaction throughout his performance. After he’d finished, many guests commented on how fantastic they thought Mark’s performance was.
