Scott brings his music to life in a way that engages a diverse audience. His technical ability is outstanding and coupled with a dynamic personality it is easy to be totally consumed in the moment. It would be a travesty not to go and see him in action as he will not disappoint the most discerning music lover. World class so please don't miss the opportunity.

Customer questions

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

Drop me a message as soon as you can, and I will always try my best to be flexible to accommodate your requirements.

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

Not a problem - I can provide an iPod service between my sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually ask for 1 to 1.5 hours to set up and prepare for a performance.

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

Of course I am happy to weave your favourite numbers into a set list - I have 20 years of experience in putting together performances so will always highlight if I know that a particular combination won't flow.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely!

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes - just give me a shout. Pending the number of songs you require me to learn fresh, there may be a small surcharge to cover rehearsal time etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My energy and ability to read the tone. Whether you need something to sit in the background or something to get people up on their feet - I promise I'll deliver!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have been privileged to perform at some fantastic venues, including Tower of London and Ronnie Scott's infamous jazz club.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I have a very eclectic taste in music, though my passion lies in jazz. Michael Brecker and George Albright are two of favourite saxophonists. Snarky Puppy are up there in my top fave bands.

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

I've performed on stage with West End superstar Cassidy Janson, American singer/actress Stacey Francis, and Gina Haley, daughter of rock 'n' roll legend Bill Haley.
