Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

The different line up options are as follows: - solo electric/acoustic violin with(out) backing tracks - electric/acoustic violin + sax - acoustic violin + piano - electric violin + DJ

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

I always try to be as flexible as possible and understand that details can change. Just communicate any changes with me and we can work together to create the best solution.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually need 30 mins max to set up. Before the event we will agree on whether you need to rent a PA or if I'll use that of the venue or DJ, which will entail minor prior communication with these.

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

My set lists are comprised from countless performances to create a wide range of repertoire suited to many tastes, creating the best atmosphere in the right moment. I have different recommendations for the ceremony, meal, and reception, and am more than happy to take on your specific requests.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes! I bring my acoustic or electric violin plus wireless microphone and PA system for events of up to 60 people. If there are more people, I provide hired equipment for a small extra fee of 80 GBP.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Absolutely. I take up to 3 specific requests before the event, and check the rep list: you may be surprised and already find your favourite tunes there!

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I never sit down or stand still when performing. I love engaging the guests in the performance and making sure that the performance is not only elegant and of the best musical technical ability, but fun and enjoyable!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

In ensembles, I've played at the Royal Albert Hall, the Barbican, and National History Museum in Mexico City. As a soloist, I've played at the Hilton London, the Marquis Reforma in Mexico and for companies such as Peugeot, Walmart and P3 as well as private customers.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love alternative and fusion string players like D-Sharp and 2 Cellos who take modern electro, pop, rock and RnB music giving it a really quirky twist on the cello and violin.

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

Probably for Peugeot at the Hotel Marquis Reforma in an event for 800 people in Mexico City. I played a mixture of jazz and pop and absolutely loved it!

Booked Naomi to perform over zoom for my wife's 26th birthday. With it being lockdown in Scotland and not having many options, I thought it would be a lovely surprise for her to have a talented musician play a few of her favourite songs. I gave Naomi a list of a few special songs that she could play for us and without complaint or hesitation she was more than happy to play them for us. From the moment I made contact to the day of the performance everything was just perfection. My wife loved it as did I, she is still buzzing that Noami played all her favourite songs on violin. Cannot recommend Naomi highly enough. She played beautifully. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Utterly splendid. Perfection. Thankyou from us both!
