What if my timings change after I've booked you?
That is not a problem. I'm very flexible. I can extend or lessen my time accordion to your budget (excuse the pun!)
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes I can provide background music through my speaker system between sets.
How much time do you need to set up?
I generally require only half an hour. If I am bringing my own keyboard and am also doing comedy then I like 45mins.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes, you can.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes: if there are particular favourites of yours that are not on the list then I am happy to learn them, if you give me enough warning in advance! But if it involves alot of pieces that require a good amount of prep then I will need to charge more.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
The warmth of the tone of my playing on accordion, and on piano, and my choice of repertoire, and my ease and flexibility on the day, eg needing to play 'a happy birthday' song spontaneously.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
The Pheasantry, (Pizza Express Live), the Bulls Head, Barnes; the Goodwood Club, Sussex; West Lodge Park Hotel, Cockfosters; Kettners Restaurant, Soho; Peggy Porschen Cake Boutique, Victoria; Chez Lindsay restaurant, Richmond; Renault Cars Showroom, Derby.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Edith Piaf and Astor Piazzolla (accordion), Claude Debussy (piano)
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Two one man shows at the Pheasantry, Chelsea in Oct and Dec 2018, and playing piano and accordion for two documentaries on ITV on Princess Diana, and accordion for BBC Scotland's feature film 'Of Fish and Foe'.
