Customer questions

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 as soon as possible.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this iPod service for free.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as I'm set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for my live performance

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I'm happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £50 for this service to take into account rehearsal times and to obtain the backing track.

O'Dell played his saxophone skilfully with control and great technique serenading the crowd with his beautiful and melodic sounds. He gave amazing renditions at the party and I look forward to hearing him play again.

O'Dell is an excellent and professional saxophonist. He played at my nephew's wedding and woo'd the crowd with his soulful melodies. He's simply the best and I would recommend him to entertain and take your event to another level. His gets 5 stars from me!
