Customer questions

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

I always endeavour to be flexible so if your timings change, let me know as soon as possible to try and accommodate this.

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

I happily offer to play music in between my sets, it's part of my fee!

How much time do you need to set up?

Approximately 30 minutes.

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

Absolutely! I want my guests to have the best time and love performing songs you all enjoy! Each event is different and I aim to tailor the entertainment to yours. If you have any additional requests, let me know.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I have everything, I just ask to be notified of access points for plugging my equipment in if you want an outside performance.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If I haven't mentioned a song(s) you wish to be included, I may already know it so feel free to ask! An additional fee may be required if this is a song you want me to learn for you to take into account the rehearsal time and backing track purchase.
