What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I understand that things often change in the run up to an event, so I try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs smoothly. If timings change just let me know! Where possible 7 days notice is appreciated.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
I don't provide this as a service, but I would be more than happy to help find a trusted musician who does offer this service!
How much time do you need to set up?
Generally I like to set up and have a quick sound check an hour before guests begin to arrive. This usually takes no longer than 20 minutes when using backing tracks, or 30 minutes if performing with other musicians.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Absolutely. I am happy to perform well known favourites as well as learn new music specific to your event. Throughout the process I will be available to help create the perfect programme for your event.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
If performing with backing tracks, yes - all I will need is a power supply. When performing with a pianist, a piano or keyboard (with a sustain pedal) may need to be provided. This is something I can confirm once a pianist is booked.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a song is not already on the set list, there may still be a chance I already know it! But in order to make sure your event is unique, I am happy to learn new pieces. If new songs are added to the set list with less than 7 days to go before the event, there may be a fee of £30 to take into account rehearsal time etc.
