Customer questions

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

Usually, timing chances which are half an hour either way are not a problem. Let me know of this is likely to happen, ot if there are likely to be any other significant timing changes, especially if it means the end of the performance is after midnight

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

Yes. I can provide some background music, or preferable, bring your own, to have you own music played

How much time do you need to set up?

Approximately one hour. This can increase though depending on how far the stage is from where vehicles are parked, or if the venue is upstairs.

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes, of course - as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, then I'm happy to play on it. A piano at the venue makes the set-up time much shorter also.

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

Yes, as long as they're on my set list. If you have any requests which aren't, let me know as I may still be able to play them.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes. I can bring my own.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, although the cost of this varies depending on the song's complexity.
