Customer questions

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

No problem as long as I'm informed in enough time. As I may be booked for another event before or after so need to make sure I can still accommodate your event.

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

Yes I can indeed. Free for just background music between sets. But if you require a full DJ set at the end of the night I would add £200 to my fee.

How much time do you need to set up?

Approx 45 mins is fine.

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

I can send you a list of all my music if you like and you can pick whatever you like.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Given enough time yes. I can have them made into accoustic tracks too if you like. Piano or guitar. Or just sing to a backing track. There would be a cost to this as I have to pay a musician.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

That I sing songs from shows I have been in like Dirty Dancing and Jersey boys.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed in most major cities in the country in musicals from manchester to brighton, cardiff to Edinburgh and truro to Inverness. As well as performing in Londons West End at the Prince Edward Theatre and Piccadilly Theatre.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Although I dont sing any of his songs, Michael Bolton is my biggest influence. But I love to sing songs by many artistes including Elton John, franki Valli, Neil Sedaka and more modern artists like Sam Smith and George Ezra.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Dirty Dancing was my favourite show to be a part of. I have sang Time Of My Life on ITV's This Morning and in Trafalgar Square at West End Live. I have also perfofmed on live saturday night TV as one of the finalists of ITV's Grease is the Word.
