Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I have been performing professionally for over 15 years and have a larger repertoire of songs which my clients are welcome to pick from. Having studied at the Royal Academy of Music, I am also an experienced improviser and jazz musician, so I am well trained and comfortable playing in any style of music.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed at hundreds of venues across Europe whilst touring with the artist 'Kwabs'. We headlined many festivals to tens of thousands of people as you can see from my profile photos. I have also also performed at venues in the UK such as the Royal Albert Hall and The Roundhouse and came first place in a youth for music jazz competition.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

See my repertoire list.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Glastonbury festival, other estival headline shows across Europe and The Royal Albert hall.

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

I will usually be flexible with timings provided what is asked is reasonable.

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

Yes.

How much time do you need to set up?

For solo performances I need 20 minutes to set up. For larger bands it will be longer.

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

yes.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

yes

Can you learn song requests before the event?

I am happy to learn song requests. There is a fee for this to take into account the time taken to rehearse the new material. Feel free to contact me for more details.
