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?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via my PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

It usually takes around 30 minutes to load in and get set up. I like to be all set up and ready around 30 minutes before the first set. I provide a free playlist service before the first set to help create a good vibe before my live performance.

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

In the lead up to your event I always discuss song choices with you so that we can tailor a set that will really suit the atmosphere that you'd like to create. I'm also happy to learn a few songs that aren't currently on my set list.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring a full PA system. All I need is easy access to plug sockets and shelter if playing outside, in case of bad weather.

Can you learn specific pieces 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 free of charge, dependant on the suitability of the song.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

High energy evening sets. Free DJ sets. Crowd participation. Professionalism. Laid back / sensitive ceremony & dinner performances.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Amberley Castle in West Sussex Bovey Castle in Devon Braxted Park Estate in Essex Down Hall Country House Hotel in Hertfordshire Easton Grange in Suffolk Gaynes Park in Essex Gosfield Hall in Essex Manchester Town Hall in Greater Manchester Marks Hall in Essex Santa Pod Raceway - VW Action/BugJam The Shard in Barking & Dagenham - London. ...To name a few

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Various artists. My favourite bands are Kings of Leon, Muse and Foo Fighters. Favourite solo artists are Ed Sheeran, James Bay and John Mayer.

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

Hired Rob and his band for our Christmas do which unfortunately got cancelled but we still got to have the band play for our 'summer ball' instead. The change in dates couldn’t have been easier and god did they go down well. We are a firm that age 18-80 and they had nearly everyone on their feet dancing at some point! I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again. I know I certainly enjoyed it and the comments from the staff the next day was nothing but praise for the event and the band. Thanks again to you all!
