Customer questions

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

I 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 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 my PA after the final set until the venue closes, I provide this for an additional £45 per hour

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up around 45 minutes - 1 hour before depending on the event

Can I pick the pieces 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!

Can you learn specific pieces 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 £25 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc

Melissa is a regular entertainer at our home and has been for the last four years. The residents really enjoy her choice in music and appreciate her wonderful voice. We always have a lot of dancing and singing along when Melissa performs for us.
