Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients love the flexibility and communication prior to the event and I am very reliable. I engage audiences with humour and credibility and take care to make sure the event is what you’re looking for.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have been very lucky and have performed everywhere from living rooms at private events to the O2 arena and in session at BBC Radio 2 and everywhere in between.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

It’s all about the song!

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

Live in session on BBC Radio 2 for Bob Harris in 2017. Such an awesome day.

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

No problem, 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 we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, I provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as my PA is set up I 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 dance and have an amazing time. However, I’m definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically through my own PA.

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 I’m happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £20 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

Would you please pass on my thanks to Gareth, for standing in last night. He hit the nail on the head for what I was looking for. I believe everybody liked his contribution.  (Ex-squaddies, especially their wives, are not known for not speaking their minds.) 😁😁 It was great, thank you. Kind Regards Tom
