Customer questions

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

I am normally quite flexible with regards to timing/situation changes. Don't hesitate to ask or let me know of any changes and I will do my best to accommodate.

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

I cannot provide a DJ service after my set has finished but between sets and just prior to my first set beginning, you're very welcome to use my PA through your device for background music.

How much time do you need to set up?

I normally require up to 30 minutes to set up my equipment, but this can be done quicker as it is a minimal but powerful set up.

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

Of course, the set list is purely a guide as to what songs are part of my repertoire. I can cater the songs I play specifically to your event and your preferences, so feel free to let me know if you have any favourites you would like to hear.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Absolutely! I provide PA and all musical equipment with me for each performance.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, I can take song requests prior to the event, and I offer this service free of charge, so feel free to let me know of the style you would like and any particular favourites you would like to hear.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My clients have often been vocal about my versatility and my personable approach to each gig. I endeavour to cater to each client's needs as quickly and as best as I can so that their event is as successful as it can be.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have played countless venues in the past, ranging from back gardens all the way to large churches with everything and anything in between!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I take influence from Soul and Motown artists such as Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and Bill Withers, and my repertoire reflects this as you can see!

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

So far, the most high profile gig I have played was for a wedding at Preston Court in Kent, one of the most beautiful venues I've ever played!

"Sam was performing at an arts & crafts fair where he had to be background music. He did this perfectly and was enjoyed by everyone. Would definitely recommend. He is an accomplished singer and musician."

Shley G, 3 years ago

We hired Sam to perform at our wedding in June 2017. We wanted him to play to our guests after our ceremony while we were off having photos done. After hiring Sam we encountered a few problems - our venue needed Sam to have his own insurances and equipment safety certificates which he happily purchased and provided at his own expense so as not to let us down. Prior to our big day Sam enquired what style of music we wanted and then sent us an extensive list of songs to chose from so that we could have a personalised set for him to perform. On the day of the wedding Sam arrived in plenty of time, was dressed smartly, and did a fantastic job of entertaining our guests. So many people commented on how talented he is. We are so glad we hired him - Talented, professional, reliable, and highly recommended Thanks again Sam
