What do your clients love most about your performances?
My Paloma Faith tribute is regarded by her fans and critics as the best Paloma Faith tribute there is. With my shows the feedback I get from my clients is the love how I tailor my performance to their needs. For dinner music I sing and make relevant formal announcements, for charity events & weddings I provide suitable hosting services. It's all about you!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
P&O Cruises Hilton Hotels TUI Hotels Blackpool Pride Chester Pride LFest Bowlers Conference Centre Spalding Conference Centre
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Paloma Faith (obviously) Cyndi Lauper Debbie Harry The Beautiful South Dusty Springfield The Cure Erasure Tori Amos B52s Moloko Fine Young Cannibals Alanis Morissette Postmodern Jukebox
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
P&O Cruises or the Pride events
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. I'm transparent with all my clients. Sometimes I perform at 2/3 events in a day. If I have taken any other bookings on the same day of your event I will let you know to ensure logistics work out.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely. This is a really popular request, my partner is a very popular DJ on Encore. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £350. This includes a bespoke playlist tailored just for you and the options of a restricted or open request playlist.
How much time do you need to set up?
I'm usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance! Or if you've booked the DJ option my DJ will set the mood.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
For my tributes I base them on Paloma Faith and Cyndi Lauper's live performances. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure I find out what works for your event. When I'm singing I don't take on the spot requests, as lovely as it is, I'm not Spotify :)
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, absolutely! If you have an external sound crew coming in please put me in touch prior to the event so I can chat through everything with them to make sure it runs as smoothly as possible.
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'm happy to do this if I can. If the track already exists it is an extra charge of £30 for rehearsal time. If the track doesn't exist I need to speak to my music producer, bespoke tracks are £100 to make.
