Customer questions

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

Will try to be as flexible as possible, just let me know as early as possible.

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

I certainly can, let me know set times and I can send an additional quote.

How much time do you need to set up?

Around 30mins but I'll arrive at least one hour before my first set begins.

Wade played during our wedding ceremony - he was incredible. Wade's energy shone through and put a smile on everyone's face, and even brought the sunshine out! He learnt 4 new songs for us which made the whole thing even more special. He was really good at communicating throughout. Would 1000% recommend to everyone! Thanks Wade :-)
