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 this can certainly be accommodated.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as the PA is set up I can provide a playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for the 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 I find what works for your event

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my PA system. I can also play guitar, piano and cajon.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If you'd like me to learn a particular song, I am happy to do this for you.
