Customer questions

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

We always try our 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 us know.

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes, of course - as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, then I'm happy to play on it!

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument and amplification for your event.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn, I am happy to do this for you.

Played a great set. Unfortunately most were outside as it was sunny, but nevertheless it was a great occasion to which Martin added thanks to his professionalism. He was also happy to be a late booking.
