Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line up currently includes guitar/bass and handpan with some basic percussion as we play as a duo. In the future we will also offer drums. Contact us for further details.

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

We 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 us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

That is not usually a question we are asked, more one for big bands. But depending on your event this may be possible, just contact us and ask.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time.

Can you roam around while you perform?

We perform in one area and cannot roam, but we can perform in one area and relocate to another if playing mainly acoustically e.g. to play outdoors for part of the event. Contact us for further details.

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

Most of our songs are originals. Our set lists are crafted from performances and learning what works best at different events. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

No PA or lighting provided but portable amps available included in the quote and are sufficient for most events we play.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes! Adapting pieces to fit on the Hang takes time so there is a fee for this service. Contact me for a quote.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients love the uniqueness of the handpan. During/following events their guests often compliment my performance and are intrigued to know more. "Soothing, uplifting, mystical and genuinely unique, I highly recommend Milly and Ryan's performances for any event and audience. Everyone will be wowed and enchanted in equal measures."

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed at countless venues ranging from bars to festivals to castles!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

That is a tricky question to answer, given the uniqueness of the handpan, but here are a few names to mention though it doesn't necessarily allude to our style - better to watch our you tube videos! Stevie Wonder David Charrier Andy Mckee Don Ross Thomas Leeb

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

Kelburn Garden Party

Milly is amazing. I have seen her play many times and never fails to make my jaw drop. It's a joy to hear her play, the music always surprises me, her covers are interesting and her original material beautiful. A show not to be missed.

Milly and Ryan have played at several of our live music events at Beetroot Sauvage; whether indoors or outdoors, they bring an amazingly magical atmosphere to the space. Every single time, they have created captivating sounds and rhythms which have enthralled all listeners and transported them to a different level of consciousness. Soothing, uplifting, mystical and genuinely unique, I highly recommend Milly and Ryan's performances for any event and audience. Everyone will be wowed and enchanted in equal measures.
