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

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

Yes, of course! I provide a DJ service within the breaks of my sets and for a short period afterwards for as part of the package. As an optional extra, you can pay £100 for music to be played half an hour either side of my sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

Normally I need half an hour to set up, however this may vary depending on the venue and will always aim to be there at least an hour before my performance.

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

Yes! I also take requests if you have a particular song you want me to play (but will need this a week in advance)

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes - however I can also play in your PA system if you would prefer. If you want me to play alongside a DJ you have already booked - this can also be arranged!

Yes

Olly played at our wedding during the evening. He arrived well ahead of schedule to ensure that he had enough time to set up. He went for a mixture of playing over original songs as well as over backing tracks. Our guests and ourselves were blown away and we would 100% recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much Olly!
