Customer questions

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

It would usually be fine to rearrange times. Sometimes I may have a booking later that could have an impact but I am always happy to negotiate.

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

I can bring a small PA and put an iPod list of mine or provide a mini jack for your device.

How much time do you need to set up?

15 minutes

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Of course and make requests, we love being exposed to new music and do anything we can to make a special occasion. We also have a good idea what works. Sometimes requests are not appropriate but I will always discuss this with the client.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, we have various sizes of PA we can bring.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

You can request up to three new songs for any event. We will happily learn more but will factor in some rehearsal time in our quote.

Ela Southgate and her trio have performed twice in the last 9 months at Danny House, an Elizabethan mansion in Sussex. They are so talented and entertaining that we keep wanting to invite them back again. Ela has a soft and hauntingly beautiful voice and she is supported by her talented and amiable guitarist and trombonist. The combination is nostalgic and unforgettable. Please come back soon Ela!

Hi Ela Thank you for your email and for performing at our wedding, it was absolutely amazing and the only thing I was disappointed with was that we were whisked away for photos so didn’t really get a chance to hear you as much as we would have liked! All our guests had nothing but praise and positive feedback on the music and you as performers. We also had a magician, a band in the evening, fireworks and even a drag act that the stag had arranged linked with his speech and I can honestly say the day was perfect, and you guys were one of the many pieces of the jigsaw that all made it work! Good luck and best wishes for the future Emma
