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, in between my set, I usually put some music playing. In case iPod music is needed out of the agreed performance timing some charges may apply but it can be discussed.
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually set up 30-min to 1-hour before the performance time.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
My set lists is crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to each moment. However, I would gladly accept 1 music request, depending on how hard they are to be played on the guitar or even if it's possible to do it with just one guitar. If you wish more song requests there may be a fee involved for arranging and practicing time involved
