Hey there, I'm Tom, and I've been playing bass over two decades and singing for even longer. From elegant weddings and corporate events to lively pubs and intimate birthday parties, I've brought my unique blend of talent and passion to every performance. What keeps me going? It's simple – I just love to perform. Whether I'm grooving on bass or belting out vocals, I pour my heart and soul into every note. And if that's not enough, I've got you covered with my unmanned DJ service, keeping the music going all night long! So get in touch and let's see if I can help make your event special!

Customer questions

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

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs 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?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, I provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for my live performance!

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Absolutely!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc
