Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I often get told that people enjoy my interaction with the audience. I’m not the type to just sing song after song with no patter in between. I always prefer to get to no my crowd!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed at concerts, large corporate events, weddings, celebrity meets and greets, birthday parties, sports clubs, hotels, EVERYWHERE! I’ll perform where anyone will have me!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I’m influenced by lots of different artists and genres, you should see my Spotify playlist... However, growing up I always really enjoyed the music of Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson. Today’s era, I like George Ezra and Ed Sheeran,

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

I’ve performed multiple times at concerts in the UK to crowds in their thousands. However, I love to perform to both small and big crowds. Whatever the size of the audience, if they want to be entertained then I’m happy to be there!

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 you'd like a DJ service via my PA after the final set until the venue closes, I can provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually arrive and start setting up about 1 hour before the performance time. 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 my live performance!

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests enjoy the show and have an amazing time. However, I'm definitely happy to discuss and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I have an excellent sound system and can also provide a lighting set up.

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, dependant on suitability for my voice, I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
