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?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as my PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for my live performance

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically. And I have a pa and lights if you would like me to perform with backing tracks.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my 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. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I think people like that I play songs from across the decades and I like to have a good variety of genres in my sets.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed over 2000 shows over the last 30 years and I have performed at all kinds of venues from manor houses to stadiums!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I have a huge range of influences. Everyone from Ed Sheehan to Elvis Presley!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I have played with major recording artists including Madonna, Culture Club, George Michael and many more.

Can't recommend this guy enough! He stepped in at short notice and did not disappoint! Just one man and his guitar, a very talented musician/singer. He performed a beautiful mixture of current and older songs. Will definitely book again for our event next year and any that pop up in between!

Very professional and no songs are too much trouble. Great music, great sound and all the guests loved him. If you are thinking of booking Matt you won’t be disappointed.
