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.
How much time do you need to set up?
I hardly need any time setting up as a solo musician, 20 minutes at the most. If vocals are added I might use a PA which would add another 15 minutes, so 35 min max
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
My set lists are crafted from countless performances, tailored for your unique event to ensure guests have an amazing time. I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works best for your event.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, absolutely! I bring my own accordion to play accoustically (or amped). For vocals I can bring a small PA & Mic & mic stand unless you have a PA and Mic stand for me to use.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a song isn't included in my set 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. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
