Jenny was great! From an acoustic guitar and vocal performance in the day to an evening 1920’s drinks reception on the piano in the evening. Jenny understand the vibe of what was needed as was incredible - highly recommended!

Jenny is an incredible musician and was fantastic from the get go. She's friendly and professional and was super flexible with all my requests. Jenny's song list is extensive and you'll definitely find ones you know in it plus she was more than happy to learn an extra song. On the day, Jenny arrived with plenty of time to set up and start jamming. Everyone loved her set and it made the day extra amazing. What are you waiting for? Book Jenny!

Customer questions

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.

I usually set up about 1 hour before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

My set lists is crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to for the room, the guests, and the event. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Yes, absolutely. I bring my own instruments, PA/sound equipment, and ipod for background music.
