What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure concerts and events run 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?
Not applicable to my services.
How much time do you need to set up?
This depends on the event. I may need to rehearse with a pianist or organist before the event.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes, but i am always very happy to learn new music. Not all of my repertoire is listed in my repertoire list.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
I will bring the music. An organist or pianist may need to be booked or I can organise for one to be there at an extra cost. I have backing tracks which may be used on occasions, but live accompaniment is always best.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a piece of music is included in my song list, with notice, I am happy to learn specific pieces in advance. I may need to charge to buy the music if I do not already have it.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
My commitment and dedication to the event that I am singing in. Purity of voice. Versatile singer - able to perform in a range of styles. Confident vocal technique. Excellent performer and communicator when performing. Good sight reading ability and a very fast learner of music.
