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. I did this at a recent wedding and offer this service for free - please note I have a small amplification system, but this can work well at small to medium venues.
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually set up about 1 before the performance time. As soon as my amplification system is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
My set list is crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure I find what works for your event.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument, usually with small discreet amplification system.
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 am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
The feedback I get is that my music sets a lovely backdrop to their event.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have played at many venues including weddings in England, Wales and Ireland: from small venues to large ones for example in function rooms at Manchester United's Old Trafford and Lancashire Cricket Club. Last year I played at a beautiful rooftop hotel terrace in central London and also a terrace overlooking the sea in a beautiful Welsh seaside village.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Many - including the Beatles of course. In terms of guitarist, Julian Bream, Baden Power de Aquino, John McLaughlin, Paco de Lucia, George Harrison - and many others.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I really don't rank my gigs in terms of importance - all are equally special from my point of view and I prepare equally for each one.
