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

Hi Robert Just wanted to say Thank you so much for Saturday night. Steve and I really enjoyed it. We thought you and the band were brilliant. I have had so many friends and family comment on the band saying how much they enjoyed the live music. Thanks for singing Shine by Take That, my favourite. If I don’t see you before I will see you at Jenn and Jims wedding next year. Tracy

Rob was an outstanding addition to the most perfect day of our lives. He arrived early to set up and sung an amazing selection of songs during our Wedding day reception drinks. He created an amazing, buzzing atmosphere whilst our guests relaxed and enjoyed Rob's amazing voice. Rob was friendly, professional and we can’t thank him enough. Would recommend to anyone, for any occasion. Mr and Mrs Driver.
