Customer questions

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

I always try to be as flexible as possible to accommodate any changes. Just let me know as soon as possible of any adjustments to timings.

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

Unfortunately not at the moment, however, it is something I am looking into for the future.

How much time do you need to set up?

If it's just me, about 10 minutes to set up and about the same again to warm up.

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

Absolutely, due to the nature of my work, I tend to play requests (from the usual repertoire) as standard.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Absolutely! As a trumpet player I tend to play acoustically anyway so I don't need much in the way of equipment.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Definitely, just let me know well in advance to give me chance to get to know it.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The balance between personality and professionalism. I pride myself in being professional yet approachable and friendly.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Ronnie Scott's, London Madame JoJo's, Soho The Sanctum, Soho Manchester 235 The Barbican, London The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester Seven Bro7hers, Manchester Gulliver's, Manchester The Factory, Harpenden

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Wynton Marsalis Wayne Bergeron Maurice Murphy

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

I once played a private function in the backing band for Brenda Edwards (The X-Factor) and Jordan Lee Davies (The Voice), who not only performed but were guests. I have also played to around 55, 000 people in Trafalgar Square with rapper E.N.V.
