What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I pride myself on being as flexible as possible, but if the timings for your event change please let me know as soon as can, in case these clash with another booking I may have that same day.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes, I can provide a playlist or DJ service between my sets free of charge. If you'd like me to continue to run this until the end of the night after the performance is complete, there is usually charge of £100 unless otherwise agreed.
How much time do you need to set up?
Set up and soundcheck usually takes up to 30 minutes, but I like to arrive with plenty of contingency and will try to be you about an hour before showtime
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Absolutely, I have a huge repertoire of over 400 songs which I can send to you after booking is confirmed. While I craft my setlists to every type of event, I'm very happy for you choose as many songs as you like for your special day to fit within the contracted performance time :)
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, I possess a full PA rig for my performances, so all I require is a power socket near to the performance area. NB: This does not include lighting
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Please let me know if there are any songs you'd like to hear on your special day, as I'll be very happy to learn them if they're not already included in my repertoire document :)
What do your clients love most about your performances?
- My distinctive, powerful and adaptable vocals ("You can sing anything!") - My huge stylistic variety! This not only ends up appealing to a wide audience taste but also keeping them on their toes as to what comes next and really ramps up the excitement (You've just had Chaka Khan? Well here's some Dizzee Rascal...and then some Queen)
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Notable venues I've performed at include: Download Festival, Donington Park Rescue Rooms, Nottingham The Underworld, Camden Town, London The Waterfront, Norwich Mercure Piccadilly Hotel, Manchester The Corporation, Sheffield The Fleece, Bristol
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Far too many to name all of them, I pride myself on a hugely eclectic taste, but the biggies are... For my covers performances: Michael Jackson, Marc Rebillet, James Brown, Prince, Muse, Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, Pendulum, For my original music: Jeff Buckley, Opeth, Porcupine Tree, Alter Bridge, Soundgarden, Faith No More, Steely Dan, Talking Heads
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Download Festival, Pepsi Max Stage at Donington Park, 2013 as lead vocalist for Nottingham rock band Emperor Chung.
