Customer questions

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

I'm always flexible with events as I understand things always run late and things change! I pride myself as working to help make the best day possible on the day: as long as it's within reason we'll work together to make it work out as best possible.

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

I'll provide basic DJ service inbetween. If you want a DJ service on the PA an hour afterwards it will cost an additional 100 pound depending :) but while I set up and inbetween is included and can include a playlist of your choice.

How much time do you need to set up?

Depending on if it's full band or solo. Solo I need 45 minutes to an hour. Full band needs an hour and a half set up and sound check time. Once the PA's set up I provide a free playlist service.

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

Solo I offer a lot of flexibility and personal requests. For the wedding band we will negotiate in advance as our set is designed to allow for the best flow for your guests but also allow some flexibility in terms of your tastes.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, as long as there is a power supply and a small table if possible (although not necessary).

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

We tend to be reasonable learning specific pieces. For weddings we offer a first dance of your choice. For other pieces we may be willing - it's always worth asking!

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients mostly comment on my energy and the fun and interactiveness of my performances! I'm also flexible and take requests so that you get a personalised experience and feel involved in your performance! I also love getting the bride and groom doing some fun performances so that you get some great photos!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Fei Bar and Red Moon Lounge in the Grand Hyatt Beijing and W Hotel Guangzhou China respectively; The Tavern, Sheraton Abu Dhabi, and the Jazz Bar Hilton Abu Dhabi, and The Crown and Lion, Dubai. I've played multiple gastropubs across Brighton, London and South Africa, and an array of Wedding venues from indoor to outdoor.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I've been largely influenced by artists like Paul Simon, Mumford & Sons, and Coldplay but also great Rock 'n Rollers like Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, and Stevie Wonder. I have a wide array of music taste but love high energy music with great groove.

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

I was involved with an American TV Programme called 'Band in Seattle' in Brighton, and played multiple Music festivals in South Africa.

Roxanne was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. She new exactly what we would be looking for when I enquired for a hen party. She incorporated everything we asked for, and had some great ideas of her own. She was a fantastic performer with a great voice and really brought some fun to the party. Everybody commented on how amazing she was and wanted to know where I found her! I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thankyou thankyou thankyou Roxanne for making it a night to remember :-) xx

We had the pleasure of having Roxi play 2 gigs at our Bar/ Restaurant, Chicago's Piano Bar Fourways. Her energy is contagious as she brings so much life and entertainment to the stage. Matched with her sensational voice, we would love to have her play any time! Highly recommended!
