Tracy & James were beautifully perfect. From the communication when booking & planning the event, through to on the day when performing for our friends & family. Both Tracy & James are extremely talented musicians. We would highly recommend!

Tracy Norman was a pleasure to work with. She communicated well (specifically adapting her repertoire to the event), arrived punctually, and was friendly to my whole team as well as the audience. She is a talented musician and her performance was extremely professional. It is clear that she has years of experience performing and working with a range of people in different settings.

I thought about you
They can’t take that away from me
My heart stood still
Dancing on the ceiling
Only a moment ago
It could happen to you
Some of these days
I love being here with you
Listen to the birds

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line up is generally vocals and guitar. For a trio we would add double bass or trumpet and there is the option for a fuller band including drums, horn player and keys.

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

We try to be as flexible as possible to help ensure your event runs smoothly. Let us know if timings change before the event and we'll try our best to make it work.

How much time do you need to set up?

For a duo gig we like to keep at least 40 minutes to an hour to set up and for a full band that would be up to 1.5 hours.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

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