Customer questions

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

I am fairly flexible with timing changes so just keep in touch and let me know.

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

I'm happy to if required but this isn't a service normally asked of me

How much time do you need to set up?

Fairly fast set up- about 15-20 minutes.

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

As long as its fairly in tune and in decent working order then yes.

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

That's fine with me provided we do so a week in advance of the event

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes I am. That's no problem.
