What do your clients love most about your performances?
I play pop covers completely from memory and can roam around interacting with guests. I perform a vast repertoire of well-know pop covers, from classic mellow ballads to current dance and chart music. My electric violin also has the ability to light-up with sound-to-light technology! For evening parties I can perform with DJ to get the party started.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Henley Royal Regatta, Royal Ascot, The Dorchester, Claridge's, Annabel's, The Ivy Asia St Paul's, Grosvenor House Hotel, Aynhoe Park, Natural History Museum, The Science Museum, The Wallace Collection, Monaco Sporting Club, Hippie Fish Mykonos, The Sheraton Hua Hin, The Galaxy Macau, The Venetian Las Vegas, Davos Congress Center.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Yehudi Menuhin, Stéphane Grappelli, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Santana, Beyoncé, Calvin Harris, Clean Bandit.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I once performed at the home of one of the Spice Girls for a VIP celebrity dinner of around 10 guests - very surreal! In terms of concerts, I recently performed with Liam Gallagher on his MTV Unplugged session from Hull and Jonathan Ross.
Do you have different line-up options?
Either solo acoustic or electric violin performance.
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 get in touch.
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually aim to arrive between 1 hour – 90 minutes before I am due to start performing. I will need this time to set up any sound equipment and do a quick sound check. As soon as my PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I have ready-made playlists that I know from experience work well for different types of events. However, if there are any genres you would particularly like to focus on, or any songs/pieces that are big no-no’s, please do let me know.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
I provide my own PA and sound equipment depending on the size of the event. For events up to 150 guests, I can provide my own Bose L1 Compact PA system. For larger events and bookings outside the UK, I require an AV company at the venue with sound engineer for whom I can provide a specific tech spec.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I am happy to learn up to 5 extra requests that are not already on this list. All I ask is that you let me know these requests at least one month before the event.
