Customer questions

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

I'll do our best to help ensure we participate in your event. In any case, please give me as much notice as possible.

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

Absolutely. I can actually offer iPod service for free via our PA. If this is needed after the final set until the venue closes, I provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

My setup takes typically 30 minutes. As soon as my PA is set up, I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for my live performance.

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

I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own PA and backing tracks to play.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I'm happy to do this for you for free, but please grant me some time to prepare it (5 days minimum).

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients have always told me they like the gentleness of my voice and the kindness in entertaining the audience

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I've performed in several different types of venues: Jazz festivals, theatres, private houses, care houses, pubs, jazz clubs, wedding venues, churches, bars...

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

My background is in Jazz, Swing and Musical Theatre music, therefore, I've been very much influenced by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O' Day, Sarah Vaughan, Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion. I personally like a lot acoustic pop/folk musicians such as Carol king, James Taylor, Tuck and Patty and many others.

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

I think to perform at the "Teatro del Giglio" in Lucca during the Lucca Jazz Donna Festival has been a great experience for me.

Elena & Leonardo are a genuine couple who love to share their talent as entertainers. Elle as a solo performer is very gentle in her approach, she interacts beautifully with people and gets regular excellent feedback and often invited to return. When working as a duo they bring a calming atmosphere with the music they perform, punctual and reliable and we would highly recommend them as entertainers. Reminisce Entertainment.

We had Elena and Leonardo play at our Christmas event on the 14th of December. We first heard them playing at an event with other artists the week before and as soon as I heard them playing I knew I wanted to book them !! Elena has a beautiful voice & so easy to listen to it was definitely one of the best bits of our event. Leonardo has a very refined style in playing, you think you're listening to a guitar and a bass player together! I would highly recommend these guys to anyone ! I look forward to seeing them play again soon
