These are just examples of the songs I know and perform regularly, I do know many more so please feel free to ask when booking if you do not see songs on this list that you require at your event. I am also happy to learn specific songs for events such as 'First Dances' for weddings.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
A standard evening booking is between 7pm and midnight so any changes within those hours are no problem at all. If there is any change to the 7pm start time then please speak to me as I may be able to accommodate but it will depend on other commitments. I will always be flexible where possible though :)
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely, this is all part of the service. Just let me know your tastes and I will happily create bespoke playlists for you prior to the event too.
How much time do you need to set up?
For my solo acoustic act I will always allow 60 minutes in total; From unloading the car to being ready to play.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
You are more than welcome to pick songs from the set list however I find it is always best to just let me know the kind of music that you and your guests like and let me build a set to suit, this will give the performance a more natural feel.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, all audio equipment and basic lights for the dance floor.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Yes, I can’t learn a complete new set as I wouldn’t have time to do that for every client unfortunately but I will always learn a first dance and happy to do a few extras. Always feel free to ask as I may have played songs recently that are not listed.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Clients seem to love that I have good energy and a very high standard of performance that engages with an audience. My main attribute is a very high quality vocal performance with many clients commenting on how they were surprised how good the vocals were live and how close the vocal sounded to the online recordings on my profile.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Hammersmith Apollo, London Astoria, W14, O2 Academy Islington, O2 Acadamy Birmingham, Union Chapel, Hackney Empire as well as hundreds of private functions in wedding venues, bars, pubs and clubs.
