Customer questions

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

I always do my best to be as flexible as possible to ensure that your event is as stress free as possible. If timings do change then let me know as soon as possible, and I will endeavour to accommodate you.

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

Absolutely, of course, and is becoming more and more the normal request for me. I provide this as part of my service through my PA and if there are any special requests/songs to play then please let me know.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually am set up in around 30 minutes before performance. However, if you need to me to be set up before your guests arrive, then let me know and I can accommodate this for you and will be discussed at booking.

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

I am always up for requests and will take these on board. However, my set list also is crafted through reading an audience and what works best for them. Saying that, if there are any special requests then let me know and these can usually be accommodated.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely. All I ask for is a small table and a plug socket :)

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Absolutely. If there is a special song you require and it isn't already in my set list, I will always do my best to accommodate this. No extra charge either, unless its an absolute last minute decision.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My ability to read an audience and be able to sing so many styles for all ages from Rock to Opera, Swing to Jazz, Musical Theatre to Cheesy Pop and all in between.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

From the smallest of pubs to an intimate crowd to 5* hotels and gala dinners and theatres. I was lucky enough to perform on the West End of London, and now seen in the UK and abroad in all types of venue.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

There are so many. As a child it was Elaine Paige, Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion, along with Queen - nowadays, its Lady Gaga, Jess Glynn and Pink

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

Probably London's West End when I was in Chicago. Personal Gig was a big Corporate Function for clients of a particular Company from around the World for a Gala Dinner/Fundraiser in Scotland.

Sandy was an absolutely excellent choice. She arrived well prepared and organised and was friendly, informal and very helpful. Both her sets were excellent. The first a " listening vibe" worked really well. We then cranked it up for dancing and singing along in with her music, with which she coped in an easy manner. She was very responsive and flexible to our needs, playing our requests and keeping the party going. She entertained us for longer than her booking time. Great set, great personality and great commitment. I'd certainly use her again and would recommend her.

What can I say? Sandy was absolutely fantastic when she performed at my daughter's 30th birthday. I requested songs from musical theatre and I was not disappointed and neither were any of the 40 or so guests that ranged from 3 years of age up to 82. Everyone had an absolute ball. Thank you so much Sandy. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sandy and would most definitely have no hesitation in re-booking Sandy.

Sandy performed an array of show tunes faultlessly at the Middlesbrough College Freshers event. Professional and so friendly, I would recommend Sandy to any venue, event, wedding or party!
