What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I've learnt to be flexible in professional music settings in terms of song requests, settings and performance times to make things run as smoothly as possible. If timings change before an event just let me know in advance.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely. This is often requested and I can provide carefully play lists though my PA to keep up a great atmosphere at no extra cost.
How much time do you need to set up?
If necessary I can set up within 30 minutes of a start time, no problem, but it's more ideal to set up at least an hour or an hour and a half in advance.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Happy to talk through the set lists and work with sets catered for you personal tastes and event.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes. Absolutely. I bring my own PA and instruments.

For an extra fee of £20 for practice and rehearsal I am happy to learn new songs for your event if possible.
