What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will do my best to accommodate any changes to dates but please provide as much notice as possible. For all events, I understand things rarely go to plan therefore if you have booked me for the evening Im happy to be flexible.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely either my own playlist or happy to work with you to create a personalised one for between sets. If you would like to hire the pa system for after the gig I'm happy to do so and can agree a fee at the time of booking.
How much time do you need to set up?
I typically require 1 hour to set up prior to the performance however I can be flexible and set things up early with music playing via the pa system prior to my performance.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I have many set lists to suit events which have been designed over the years. I'm happy to include specific songs you would like however quite often it works best to have a changeable setlist to suit the mood and feel of the evening. If you would prefer something more specific I'm happy to talk through this prior to booking.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, I have everything you will need for any event.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
It is possible to learn new songs provided there is enough time to rehearse and play it to a standard you would want at your event. There would be an additional fee of around $50 per song to cover the additional work and rehearsal required.

Digital music party
I'll host an hour's entertainment for your virtual party. Put the speakers on and have your own live music session without the need for space. A hell of a lot more fun than a Spotify playlist. Requests can be taken on the night.
