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. However, If you'd like a DJ service via my PA after the final set until the venue closes, I provide this for an additional £100. If that time is no longer than an hour."
How much time do you need to set up?
"I usually set up about 1 to 1.5 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, Iam 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 as well as all the leads and other hardware needed."
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 Iam happy to do this for you. Any extra songs then there is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc. ”
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Previous clients have said that I got the mix of songs just right and have enjoyed the relaxed, fun atmosphere that I create.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Being booked for a wedding or event I have played many people's often very large gardens in a marquee. I've played for TV celebrities and black tie dinners in and around Stratford Upon Avon. Corporate/ Charity functions have seen me playing at The Millenium Point in Birmingham and the 02 Academy.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Don McLean, Morrissey, Lou Reed, Supergrass, Elvis Costello and many more
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I've played on The Jimmy Lloyd Songwriters Showcase TV show which was recorded on Broadway, New York. That felt like a high profile gig. On a smaller scale I was personally chosen to play for Henry Normal who co founded Baby Cow productions with Steve Coogan. He co wrote and produced Alan Partridge, Gavin and Stacey, Nighty Night and other hit comedies!
