What do your clients love most about your performances?
My performances are unique from what you see from your standard acoustic guitarist and singer. I use a range of effects and loops to create a one man band show that can fully engage the audience and a singalong for evening parties, and also create a great atmosphere for background music for more low key or day time events. Please see feedback for more.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Glastonbury O2 Academies Ibiza Rocks The Garage London York Barbican Keepmoat Stadium Ricoh Arena
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
The Beatles Billy Joel Noel Gallagher David Bowie
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
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 its just inbetween sets. If you'd like a DJ service via my PA after the final set until the venue closes or for time before the set, I can provide this for an additional £150. Please note no DJ lighting is included within this.
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually set up about 0.5 hours before the performance time!
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
My set lists are 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?
Can you learn song requests 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 £50 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
