What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will always try 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.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes. I can hook up an ipod to my PA system, supplying background music between breaks to keep the ambience going. If you have a smart phone, depending on the connection, I may also be able to set up your playlist.
