What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will always do my best to be flexible to accommodate minor changes in timings. For example, I was recently booked to play for a wedding turn-around period, and the ceremony over-ran by half an hour. To accommodate this, I adapted my set and played through without a break.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes. I can use prepare a playlist to suit. Alternatively, I can import a playlist if you wish to prepare your own.
How much time do you need to set up?
30 mins if using a PA. No set-up if using an acoustic piano owned by the venue.
If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?
Yes, as long as the venue can guarantee that the piano has recently been tuned!
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Yes, of course!
Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?
Yes. I own a fully weighted Roland FP-4 and supply this free of charge.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Yes, I am always very happy to learn new songs.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Flexibility and versatility. I have a very good musical ear (and have been in this game a long time!), so if you can hum it, I can probably play it.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
The Parc Hotel, Cardiff The Celtic Manor, Newport The Lime Tree, Chepstow The Globe, Lydney Clearwell Castle Blaina Wharf, Newport Doldowlod Hall, Llandrindod Wells The Caer Beris, Builth Wells etc. etc.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
JS Bach has probably had the greatest influence on all musicians!
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Every gig is important, whether it is a playing solo piano for a memorial service in a family home, accompanying a small child for their first violin exam or playing keys in a band on stage. I am always professional, whatever the occasion.
