Customer questions

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.

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

That is not usually a question i am asked, more one for big bands. But depending on your event this may be possible, just contact me and ask.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 45 minutes before the performance time as a solo performer, up to 90 minutes in advance if I'm performing with my guitarist.

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

Our set lists are crafted from performances and learning what works best at different events. However, we're 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 instrument to play acoustically. Though a lone of a chair might be welcome!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes! Adapting pieces to fit on the Hang takes time so there is a fee for this service. Contact me for a quote.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients love the uniqueness of the handpan. During/following events their guests often compliment my performance and are intrigued to know more. "Soothing, uplifting, mystical and genuinely unique, I highly recommend Milly and Ryan's performances for any event and audience. Everyone will be wowed and enchanted in equal measures."

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed at countless venues ranging from bars to festivals to castles!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

That is a tricky question to answer, given the uniqueness of the handpan, but here are a few names to mention. Stevie Wonder David Charrier Kabecao Nadishana

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

Kelburn Garden Party

Milly is amazing. I have seen her play many times and never fails to make my jaw drop. It's a joy to hear her play, the music always surprises me, her covers are interesting and her original material beautiful. A show not to be missed.
